--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.1. Language Selection

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.2. Uninstallation

Watch_Dogs™ can be uninstalled from within the Uplay PC application. Go to the Watch_Dogs™ game page within the Uplay PC application, then click on the arrow next to the Play button. Select the Uninstall option and follow the instructions on-screen to uninstall the game.

================================================== ==============================
2. General Notes
================================================== ==============================

2.1. Display/Performance Settings

Watch_Dogs™ supports high resolution textures. Note that setting the texture quality to High requires 2 GB of VRAM and setting it to Ultra requires 3 GB of VRAM.

The Graphical Settings can impact the memory usage of the game. If your computer lacks RAM memory, these settings should be lowered down accordingly.

There are some video card drivers that may cause flickering and disappearing objects. It is important to make sure the latest available drivers are installed.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.2. Optimal Settings

When launching the game for the first time, the game will attempt to detect the optimal settings for your system. This may take a few seconds. If the game is unable to fully identify your computer, then the optimal setting is going to be medium or high.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.3. Uplay PC

This game requires a one-time online activation via Uplay PC.

Create a new Uplay account in the Uplay application or at Uplay.com or use your existing Uplay account and the Unique Key that came with your game to bind the game to your account.

Launching the game after this one-time activation is possible in online and offline mode. Not all game functionality is available in Offline Mode.

For Uplay licenses see the installation directory of the Uplay application and check the data\resources\LICENSES.TXT file

3.4. Hints

* It is _not_ advisable to install the game into the Windows folder (usually C:\Windows), a subfolder of the Windows folder, nor the root of the system drive (usually C:\).

* It is recommended to close all other running programs before installing the game, to reduce the risk of software conflicts.

* If you experience graphical corruption, make sure your graphics driver's control panel is _not_ configured to override application settings.

* Vibration support is only supported if using the Xbox 360 controller.
