The post says " Game is very demanding on the CPU and benefits from additional cores.[1] Use level of detail decreasing settings and limiting frame rate to improve performance."

The source is from 3 years ago, maybe time to remove?

I have removed it, and rephrased the recently introduced DXVK bullet point.

The CPU demanding nature of both Origins and Odyssey seems to in many ways be due to the design of the engine itself which seem to be designed for modern low-level APIs like DirectX 12 and Vulkan. The Direct3D 11 API seems to be what is bottlenecking the engine. Hell, apparently it seems to use a compatibility layer to turn the native D3D12 calls into D3D11 on Windows.

On my Vega 56, I confirm that DXVK is *the* miracle solution to permanently fix the micro-stuttering that plagued Origins. It also massively improves frame rate in cities like Alexandria and Memphis (Odyssey benefits as well in similar places). Note that, in my case, I had to set the in-game FPS limiter to 60 for DXVK to actually work (FPS would remain choppy otherwise).

Kaldaien indeed suggests that Origins and Odyssey on PC were heavily designed for multithreaded APIs, but were downgraded to run on DX11, which completely kills performance in both games. The DXVK (DirectX to Vulkan) translation layer removes that limitation.

The documented location is: <Uplay-folder>\savegames\<user-id>\3539\

Today I want to make a simple bat script to backup this savegame folder, and I observed that in my system the folder "3539" does not exist. My savegame files are in the folder "4923". I use Windows 10 Home, and my game is from Steam version.

Thanks, I've added a Steam row with that ID as well.

It's confusing, sometimes Uplay uses separate IDs between Uplay and Steam, and sometimes they do not. Sometimes I believe they also uses separate IDs on Uplay between different regional version as well.

It makes us less accurate in regards to covering Uplay titles for sure.
