Ubi's slick-looking but ultimately extraneous interface, uPlay, will not launch the game.
My son played this title regulary, never running into problems with uPlay. But now, after re-installing it after many months of not playing, we find that the game will not even launch! Right after clicking Play, a "Your game will open in Steam" or some such message appears, then the gameplay summary window appears. No error messages to indicate what's wrong--just a window stating play time was zero minutes. Oh, and "Thank you for playing ...."
This is not an isolated problem--others have tried reporting this problem at Ubi's forums and Ubi's only response is to fill out tickets. Any solutions that are given, e.g. creating a 'graphics.ini' file, work for only one person; the supposed solution does not work for everyone.
By the way, the only reason the community new about a possible 'graphics.ini' soltuion was because a community member was kind enough to post what he/she was instructed to do be email; Ubi's moderators / support staff didn't post it. Ubi continues to tell players to post tickets.
