Hi, and thanks for the mod, Ive been searching for it since like 3 years, and I downloaded the uplay version, but windows defender detected it as a Trojan:Win32/CryptInject!ml trojan horse, and I really dont know if is there a virus or maybe its how the mod works.Btw., I want to hug you if its not a malware, and you are a hero.

OK I werent able to wait, so disabled all antiviruses of mine, downloaded it again, extracted. Then opened the game from uplay, and started the mod exe. If i press any options, they become red for a few second, then black again, and nothing seems to change ingame. Is there any step I missed? Tried to run the game as admin too. Pleas bucket help I want it so bad haha. Thx.

Hey.

A lot of antivirus software will wrongly flag the mod's .exe file as malware due to the way Cheat Engine works (the software it's based on).

To get the mod working, you should just be able to launch the game (Uplay version), then launch the mod exe (also Uplay verion) and press F1/F2/F3.

If you press F3 and the text doesn't turn red in the menu (but for F1/F2 it does), it suggests you have the wrong version of the game installed. For the Uplay version of AC2, you need V1.01 - try running the updater at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Assassin's Creed II\AssassinsCreedII.exe"

Cheers

Thanks for the really fast reply, I've tried everything you said, but even the shadows arent getting better. They turn red for a second and back, and nothing seems to change. I reinstalled the game, and redownloaded it. Still the same problem. I downloaded cheat engine, loaded the ct file from the mod, and selected the process of ac2. I tried checking and unchecking the records, nothing changed. I dont really know how cheat engine works or whatis the problem. I have win 10 professional, gtx 1050 ti and intel i7 8th gen. Thanks for the so much help and the amazing mod, but it seems not working for e :(

How are you installing the game? Downloading directly through Uplay/Ubisoft Connect? It might also be worth trying the Steam version of the mod (or game, while it's on sale).

The mod is only tested with two specific versions of the game's AssassinsCreedIIGame.exe, with these MD5 hashes:
- c9dbd17e2c7555ad3654e7b1dd978cdb
- 7d6b866eeacfc7a69a00f800a529bf8e

You can check the md5 hash of your game exe by running this command in command prompt:
certutil -hashfile "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Assassin's Creed II\AssassinsCreedIIGame.exe" MD5

If your md5 doesn't match one of the above (ignoring spaces), that's likely why it's not working. It's possible the .exe file is different for different languages/regions, or the standard/deluxe edition. The ones above are for the English versions of the game.

Thank you so much! it works perfectly with the steam mod. Bless you. the hiding spots on the roof drapes are really missing, but guess its a sall price to pay for higher LOD. :) Stay safe!

There is small issue with the mod I noticed: the roof gardens/hiding spots drapes are missing at medium distance and pop-in when player gets very close, about 3 meters. Once they appear, they do not disappear again when players moves away from them.

Greetings! The mod is very useful and necessary, thank you! Can you provide support for this mod for the Russian version of the game? Perhaps it's the multilingual support for this mod? Judging by the comment below, the mod works on the unlicensed version, but only the original one, but this does not suit me. The fact is that in my language in the game this mod does not work. Even if you use the vanilla English version in Ubisoft Connect and put the Russian translation, it still doesn't work. Also with the pirated version translated into my language. And as we know, TextMod doesn't work on the license.
I also found a bug with this modification. There is a screenshot. In any case, thank you.

Hey. I've just added a separate version of the mod for the latest Uplay version of AC2. Hopefully that helps. Cheers

About the problem. This bug doesn't always appear. While walking, you can only see it from certain angles.

Thank you very much! Your " Ubi " version of the mod helped solve the problem! Now your modification works perfectly on the Russian unlicensed version of the game! By the way, as I already wrote, I found a bug that is difficult to explain in text and through the language barrier :) I uploaded screenshots to my profile. I hope this will help you solve the problem and release the update as soon as possible!

Hey, whereabouts did you encounter that bug? I walked around Florence for a bit but couldn't see anything similar.
