Well , running as admin didnt work , running in xp comp mode didnt work , moving the to a shorter path didnt work.

So unless you have the source code handy i cant see what else there is to do.

On Vista or Win7?

I've never had any luck installing it in program files which is where it defaults to. Create a new folder outside of Program Files and install AC there.

There's also some port issues that can be fixed relatively easy.

WTF would you need the source code for? I'm under the assumption you have absolutely no clue what your doing.

Reading ftw.

You said shorter path not different directory. but whatever.

could also be your router. Or what was said above. Your ISP.

AC's over a decade old. You can't really expect it to be fully functional with modern technology?

There will always be hoops to jump through as long as AC exists.

Mine works great too. :P All I was trying to say was you can't expect there not to be issues with a 10+ year old computer game.

Did you unsubscribe yet?

Your problem sounds like one I was having on Windows 7.

If this were 1999 I would just say eff it & run the game with out hardware acceleration. Seeing as how that solution is 13 or so years too late I would recommend the following.

Update your OS if you haven't & then revert DX from 11 to 10.X or whatever it was before 11.

Also be sure that your video card drivers are all updated.

When this was happening to me I was in this weird limbo with radeon drivers & dirext x support and as a result resorted to running AC through wine on a ubuntu partition. It worked like a charm though there was no decal(wine cannot fully emulate DX injection) but that may work if you atleast want to log in & kill some bunnies.

Oh, one last thing you could always try DX 11 with open source omega drivers. They are third party drivers that can occasionally give better performance & support than the proprietery(sp.fml) ones.

If those don't work then condolences, nice try, better luck next time.

Before you mess with all of your drivers/direct x (directx 11 drivers work fine with AC btw, they still have directx 9.0 compatability built in and that is what AC runs off of) from XENs suggestion try port forwarding.

http://forums.ac.turbine.com/showthread.php?t=44535

That sounds exactly like what your problem is. When your go to log in your character it starts receiving data on a new port. NAPT routers really really hate this, so you need port forwarding setup (or is you really wanted to you could switch your router to NAT settings at which point it only cares about ips and not ports).

I thought I had cancelled my AC subscription months ago, yet I realized yesterday I was still paying for the subscription. So I decided to update and log in, and ironically enough I am having the same problem. I imagine it has something to do with the anti virus or something along those lines . . might give AC another try on my personal laptop however grin
