Disable Cloud Sync In Ubisoft Connect

Some of the supported games in Ubisoft can use the cloud sync option to save your progress in the cloud, allowing you to continue from where you left off despite changing systems. While this feature might be useful for some players, it is also the reason why Assassin’s Creed Mirage keeps crashing. To see if this is the case with you, simply disable cloud sync in Ubisoft and see if that solves the crashing issue.

Follow these steps to disable cloud sync in Ubisoft Connect:

  1. Launch Ubisoft Connect and click on the three horizontal lines at the top-left corner of your screen. This will open a side menu.
  2. From here, click settings.
  3. Make sure that you are in the general tab.
  4. Here, uncheck the box that says, “Enable cloud save synchronization for supported games.”

Note: I was also experiencing a lot of crashing with Assassin’s Creed Mirage. I completely fixed it by disabling the Cloud Save Synchronization feature in UPlay.

Disable NVIDIA Anti-Aliasing FXAA

Many NVIDIA users reported disabling Anti-Aliasing FXAA fixed the crashing in Assassin’s Creed Mirage. I believe it’s due to a potential compatibility issue between AC Mirage and NVIDIA’s Anti-Aliasing FXAA. You can verify whether this is the cause behind your crashing issue by disabling FXAA via the NVIDIA control panel. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Right-click on your desktop and then click NVIDIA Control Panel from the menu.
  2. On the left side of your screen, find the Manage 3D Settings option and click on it.
  3. Stay in the Global Settings tab if you want to disable Anti-Aliasing FXAA for all your games.
  4. From here, locate the Anti-Aliasing FXAA option and select the Off option next to it.
  5. Switch to the Program Settings tab for those who only want to disable FXAA for Assassins Creed Mirage.
  6. Now, click the Add option and select the .exe file for Assassins Creed Mirage.
  7. With AC Mirage added, turn off Anti-Aliasing FXAA from the list of options.

Read: Anti-Aliasing FXAA usually has problems with some games. Here is an old but still relevant Reddit post explaining how disabling Anti-Aliasing fixed their crashing issue.

Turn Off Your Antivirus Software

This might surprise some players, but your antivirus software can cause many game-crashing issues. This happens because the software can mistake certain applications as threats, causing them not to function as intended. The fix to this is simple: you must temporarily disable your antivirus software and launch Assassins Creed Mirage to see if the crashing issue has been fixed.

Warning: Disabling your antivirus software is risky and should not be done for long periods. Doing so will leave your PC vulnerable to all kinds of threats that are spread across the web.

Here’s how you can disable the Windows Firewall Defender:

  1. Press the Windows icon on your keyboard and open the start menu. From here, click the gear icon to open Windows system settings.
  2. Inside Windows settings, click the Update & Security section. Now, click Windows Security.
  3. Find the Firewall & Network Protection option. Once found, click it to open a new window with the security options.
  4. These security options are Domain NetworkPrivate Network, and Public Network.
  5. You must disable all three of them to turn off the Windows Firewall Defender.

If your game works fine after deactivating Windows Defender, simply follow our tech expert Ayyoun’s guide on the Whitelisting game directory.

Reference: Ubisoft also recommends whitelisting your games in case you are experiencing conflicts with your antivirus software.

Disable Third-Party In-Game Overlays

Many third-party overlays display all kinds of widgets or notifications that pop up during your gameplay. I believe many of these overlays are not helpful to the average player and may cause conflicts, resulting in crashes and other problems with your game. Additionally, the in-game overlays use up a surprising amount of your PC’s processing power, which is detrimental for players with lower-end systems.

The most widely used in-game overlay applications among gamers include Xbox Game Bar in Windows, Discord, and NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience. To learn how to disable these applications and more, read this comprehensive guide by our tech specialist, Ayyoun Ali.

Read: Reddit user ForTheLoveofJinx also reported that they managed to fix their crashing in Assassins Creed Mirage by disabling Ubisoft’s in-game overlay.

Verify Assassins Creed Mirage Game Files

The crashing in Assassins Creed Mirage can also be attributed to corrupted or missing essential game files. These game files keep AC Mirage running the way it is intended to. You will naturally encounter crashing and various other issues if they get corrupted. Fortunately, you can fix this without too much trouble, as both Epic Games Store and Ubisoft Connect offer built-in solutions to this problem.

If you are unsure how to verify game files, read this guide written by Ayyoun Ali, who explains each step in great detail and includes all the major game launchers.

My Experience: Whenever I encounter freezing and crashing problems in my games, I always make sure to verify that specific game’s files. Doing so has fixed the issue for me many times.

Launch Assassins Creed Mirage As Admin

Assassins Creed Mirage might be crashing because you don’t have the necessary permissions to play the game. While it may seem slightly obvious initially, it has happened to me many times. I recommend quickly eliminating this possibility and launching Assassins Creed Mirage with Admin privileges.

If you’re confused as to how you can do it, you can read this in-depth guide on running applications as an admin and disabling fullscreen optimization.

Lower In-Game Graphic Settings

At this point, the crashing issues in Assassins Creed Mirage likely stem from your hardware’s inability to run the game properly. Just in case, I recommend you check if your GPU or CPU is overheating. You can also try lowering the in-game graphic settings to ease the overall load on your system. 

My Suggestion: You should follow all of the settings mentioned in our Assassins Creed Mirage Best Settings guide. They are optimized to be highly efficient without sacrificing your visual experience.
