Assasin's Creed Valhalla crashes after Ubisoft June 27, 2022 update

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla worked flawlessly until the Ubisoft update on June 27, 2022. After the update ACValhalla.exe runs for about 10 seconds taking 500% CPU time and the crashes with Error[Crash]: Reason: Exception Caught at 0x00000000020B0632 (Violation when reading address 0x0000000000000048).
Apparently the update found a weak spot in Lutris/Wine/Proton.

Hello,
I’m in the same situation running it on a Steam Deck.
In the Proton log I’ve found exactly the same error line as you:

Error[Crash]: An Exception has been detected by Bloomberg and a report will be sent.
Error[Crash]: Reason: Exception Caught at 0x0000000002110632 (Violation when reading address 0x0000000000000048)

I’m surprised the issue isn’t much discussed online, this is the first place in days where I’ve found it!

Hello again,
I’ve found today a workaround by franken-building the uConnect application.
After backing up the current installation, I’ve downloaded the previous version (Download Ubisoft Connect 130.1.10667 for Windows | Uptodown.com), opened it as a ZIP archive and taken out just the updated files:

.\npuplaypc.dll
.\npuplaypchub.dll
.\overlay.dll
.\overlay64.dll
.\prod.keys
.\ubiorbitapi_r2.dll
.\ubiorbitapi_r264.dll
.\UbisoftConnect.exe
.\UbisoftGameLauncher.exe
.\UbisoftGameLauncher64.exe
.\uicommon.pak
.\Uninstall.exe
.\upc.exe
.\uplay_aux_r1.dll
.\uplay_aux_r164.dll
.\uplay_r1.dll
.\uplay_r2.dll
.\uplay_r164.dll
.\uplay_r264.dll
.\UplayCrashReporter.exe
.\UplayService.exe
.\UplayWebCore.exe
.\data\loc\*.*

I’ve put these files in the current installation and restarted uConnect. It worked. I’m playing again with AC: Valhalla now.
I hope it may be useful in the meantime.

it’s franken-building but it works…

Hi guys, can anyone confirm that only replacing overlay64.dll is enough to make the game works.

This issue also happened to Immortal Fenyx Rising, downgrading overlay64.dll make it works again.
