I. How to fix Assassin’s Creed “Please wait until saved games are synchronized from server” error crashes?
Usually, this error occurs because of the DRM implemented by Ubisoft. There’s only one way to avoid this: by disabling the option to save your game online. Here’s how to do it and get rid of this unwelcomed bugger:
1. After launching the game, click on the gear icon at the top right side of the dialog box
2. A new pop-up window will appear, asking if you wish to disable saved games from being stored online – select Yes.
3. Close the game launcher and go to the following folder: C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher
4. Find the file settings.ini and open it with a text editor (like notepad). Search for the SaveOnline=true line and replace it with SaveOnline=false.
5. Save the folder then delete the Storage folder in the Ubisoft Game Launcher directory.
6. Run the game and enjoy – no more problems!
II. How to fix Assassin’s Creed 2 crashes to desktop and not-launching issues?
1. If the game doesn’t launch, make sure you’re connected to the internet and try restarting Steam/your computer.
2. Also, you can try to lower the game’s settings by disabling Vsync and multi-sampling and turning down environment detail levels.
III. How to fix Assassin’s Creed 2 crashes and freezings during gameplay?
1. Close down all background applications before loading the game, just to be sure that nothing is conflicting with the game.

Click Start > Run > type %temp% > OK > click Edit > Select All > Delete.
