Issues fixed[edit]

Crash after 15 minutes on Windows 10[edit]

May be caused by a strange interaction between one version of XAudio2_7.dll and the on-screen keyboard service.
Check if this is indeed the cause of the crash with Windows error log[citation needed]
  1. Open the Start menu, type msinfo32, and press Enter.
  2. In Software Environment\Windows Error Reporting look for entries with ac3lhd_32.exe, and check that the faulty module is XAudio2_7.dll.
Stop TabTip process[citation needed]
The TabTip.exe process, also referred to as Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel Helper, must be disabled before launching the game. To simplify this process, do the following:
  1. Create the following batch command using your actual installation folder path.
    taskkill /f /im "tabtip.exe"
    cd /d "<path to the game>\Assassin's Creed Liberation"
    start ac3lhd_32.exe
  2. Save as a .cmd and launch as an administrator.
  3. To simply this process further, create a shortcut to the .cmd and choose Run as an administrator in the shortcut's advanced options. The game's icon can even be used as the shortcut.

FPS drops from 60 to 30 when Vsync is enabled[edit]

Much like in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, this issue is caused by a lack of triple buffering in the game.
Use D3DOverrider to force triple buffering[citation needed]
  • Do not force VSync in D3DOverrider, only triple buffering.
  • Enable VSync in game options (or force it in Nvidia control panel or Nvidia Inspector).
  • Other workarounds for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag can also be used.

Very low framerate even on capable hardware[edit]

Disable Anti-Aliasing[4]
Prevent UPlay syncing before and during game execution[4]
On slower or firewall-protected Internet connections, UPlay Sync may fail repeatedly, causing abnormal drops in framerate.
  • Disable Internet connection before launching the game and maintain until exiting the game.
  • To sync UPlay achievements and saves, enable Internet, sync, quit the game, and then repeat disabling the Internet connection for normal play.
No progression-related in-game features are affected by this fix as no multiplayer is present in the game and UPlay unlocks are added by the UPlay client in a save outside the game.

Crash during transition to 1768 cutscene[edit]

Set shadow quality to normal
