09-12-2015, 04:19 PM
Hello. I am having an issue that other people had too, But I looked at the threads and didn't get valid answers. This issue is annoying because it renders the missions "Reclamation" or "Burn It Down" impossible to complete.. I don't have any NVIDIA gameworks settings on. Help would be appreciated.

Graphics Settings
Ambient Occlusion - SSAO
Anti-Aliasing - SMAA
Environment - High
Fur - On
Geometry - High
Godrays - Off
Post FX - High
Shadow - Low
Terrain - Medium
Textures - Medium
Trees Relief - Off
Triple Buffering - Off
Vegetation - Medium
Water - High

PC Specs
AMD FX 6350 Six-Core Processor
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550Ti (Drivers are up to date.)
Windows 8.1 x64

try reducing your settings all to medium or low and disable Fur your expecting too much of that GPU , it is ........ in fact SLOWER than the base GPU in the minimum system requirements a GTX 460

that's probably why its crashing.....

your card a GTX 550 ti

only 192 shader cores :nonchalance: its also only got a 192 bit memory interface :nonchalance:

a GTX 460 (the minimum supported GPU)

336 shader cores plus more memory bandwidth in the higher end model GDDR 5 with 115.2 Gig per second verses your 550ti that only has 98.4

so... all in all a 550 TI = slower then a 1 gig 256 bit GTX 460

if ya want better performance with Far Cry 4 your gonna wanna buy and install a better graphics card the recommended Nvidia GPU is a GTX 680 or better

Alright, Sweet. I'll test it and see if that works.

also try backdating your drivers .. your card is 4 yrs old some older drivers may work better .. i had good luck with the Nvidia 347.52 drivers on my windows 7 and 8 .1 installs ..they also work fine with windows 10
they were from February 2015 and were the last ones that even mentioned any performance increase for FAR CRY 4 in the release notes

more info on the gameworks features not working properly can be found here

if you have an issue open a support ticket with NVIDIA as well as UBI

you can reach ubi support here https://support.ubi.com
