it's about time to make this topic. anyone got anything good?

just a few minutes ago i found invisible people when i was doing a theives guild quest. i just run and suddenly trip over someone who isn't there. and then i do a kill-animation on thin air. sounds like civilian women but it doesn't desynch.
it's been pretty consistent so far, gonna try again tomorrow and see if they are still there.

Several people have commented on random desynchronization. For me that happened during the "Trojan Horse" memory in Sequence 6 (the one where you escort all the disguised mercenaries into the Baron's camp). At each roadblock I'd stealth assassinate the three guards. As soon as the coast was clear the mercenaries would resume marching and Ezio would desynchronize for no reason. Angry

It took me two sittings to complete "Seeing Red" in Sequence 8 (Ezio with Apple of Eden versus the guards inside the Colosseum). I must have restarted that mission five times due to various glitches. The same glitch happened two times in a row: One of my required targets would take off running and pass beyond the memory wall. I could still see him over there, running in place against a column, but I couldn't find a way to kill him. Sigh... restart memory.

You won't even feel the blade.

Same thing happened to me on Trojan Horse.

Fell into a building and couldnt get out once

A Borgia Tower Captain was invisible and wouldnt move, I could shove him and stuff and you could see his actions by the symbol on his head moving and stumbling around. In fact the Borgia Captains are so buggy, most of the time when I kill a guard and they see the body they go off to the weirdest places. In one of my upcoming vids he simply strolls out of the town all by himself, so I walk up and kill him.

Near a Romulus lair in Campagna (I think) where you can fill the area with water by repairing the nearby aqueducts, you can swim under one of the walls if you jump into the water before repairing the aqueducts. You can swim around beneath the game world and see everyone walking around above you.

I also had issues on Trojan Horse. As I killed the 3rd guard at the first stealth guard post (second actual post but the first doesn't require stealth), I desynched for no reason. There were no other guards fighting my mercenary followers and I wasn't seen by any guards either.

Kind of annoying, especially as the mecenaries walk so slowly when following you Tongue

only real glitch ive come across is not being able to ignite the borgia tower after killing the captain. i came back later, killed the captain again, and was able to ignite the tower. i guess im lucky cuz others have reported that they can never get the tower to ignite no matter how many times they retry

I experienced the glitch where the guy kept dodging my attacks over and over again. Sooo frustrating! DX

Besides that, the only thing I experience is "Waiting for Abstergo agents" takes almost 10 minutes each time. Stare

That's a server-side issue, and there is a simple workaround – quit out and search for another match. Don't waste time sitting there waiting.

Whenever you have joined a session and it's waiting for agents, just look at the top half of the screen. If it's a city, you're usually good. If it just shows the animi at Abstergo, it's a glitched/non-working lobby and it will likely never load even after it gets max players. I've never seen one load into the match where it just showed the lab the entire time. But when it shows the city you'll be playing in, it always works once enough people have joined. So if you see more than a couple people have joined but it still shows the Abstergo back splash, quit out and search for another match.

While some people have reported issues, the latest patch did help a lot with connecting to games. Since the patch, I've always been into a game within two or three minutes doing the above.

I've never had any problems like these. Are you all on 360?

Was on a mate's PS3 a few days ago. He got a glitch with the first Borgia tower. The captain wasn't there and he'd been searching for him an hour. Only until I told him to restart the mission (which was immediately when I arrived), the captain returned.

I myself have experienced very few glitches, and if I had them, they were very minor, so hardly word mentioning. Guess I'm lucky. Tongue

Then you've just been lucky, because the majority of these issues exist on both systems. The PS3 version also has a couple issues that the 360 version doesn't.

Wow lol. I'm on my second playthrough, and the only glitches I've experienced, both times are random desynching on the Baron missions. I'm so lucky it's amazing Smile

I had desynch during the baron missions, but that was for being too far away from Bartholomeo's group. Which is kinda unfair, when you think about how the mission is structured.

the posts a bit guy

Yeah I also feel really lucky when it comes to stuff like this. No Tunnel glitch, game breaking animus glitch, all trophies registered first time both games, no cheats on multiplayer ( but really dodgy lag)

That reminds me, in Forli the streets got so packed I was actually laughing, it slowed my game right down. I think it was some bug, people just kept pouring down the street and no one could barely move or see each other, like hundreds walking down the street taking up all the space

That's interesting. Gives a bit of insight as to how they load meshes and skins.

On a similar note, if you play as Civilian Ezio in the Colosseum mission where you assassinate the guy after you come back from the Memory Corridor you can see Desmond in Civilian Ezio's clothes but with his hair and face. Pretty weird.
