TRY THIS

Nvidia gameworks problems , if your getting crashes with an Nvidia GPU in the game, try to not use the Nvidia gameworks features , these were busted in the recent Nvidia drivers
please see the following threads about this problem .

and this one on the official Nvidia forums

additionally with AMD GPU's there was a problem with the AMD beta 15.11 driver that caused the game to crash on launch

to fix it roll back to the 15.10 beta driver or use the 15.7 WHQL drivers


you can get both from this link

make sure you use DDU when uninstalling your current drivers in safe mode for best results

I get ""Far cry 4 has stopped working"" at a specific point of the game. First Shangri-La, second Mani mill. Game crashes every time. I have AMD Crimson 15.12

do you have the game thru Steam or just Uplay only ?

either way Verify your game files

To verify your files if you bought the game thru Steam ..\EXIT Steam ..right click your steam icon ..select run as Administrator


launch Steam


go to your Steam games library


right clik on far cry 4


select properties


select local files


select verify Integrity of game cache


it takes a few min to do but its faster the redownloading your entire game , if its only a few files that were corrupt or installed incorrectly .... this in many cases will fix your problems


If you have the U play only Version of the game you can also verify your game files with U play


if you have the game via u play only here are instructions how to verify your game files thru their client
Again its probably best to make sure you launch Uplay as RUN as Administrator when you do a file verify

see the bottom of the page

also try newer drivers or older drivers , the AMD drivers have had alot of problems recently

today they rolled out new crimson ones (16.1) but they also have problems with FarCry 4

with AMD GPU's there was a problem with the AMD beta 15.11 driver that caused the game to crash on launch

AMD has released newer drivers but they still have issues , under Known issues
in the new 16.1 driver is
[84434]Far Cry 4 – A crash may occur after performing (ALT + Enter) to switch between windowed/full screen modes with the AMD Gaming Evolved "Video Capture" feature turned on

the Far Cry 4 stopped working is sometimes a sign of a TDR

Timeout Detection and Recovery ..and is usually related to a bad driver or files if it freezes before crashing

try the 16.1 drivers first but if you have an older GPU it might not be supported

AMD dropped driver support for many older GPUs so see this page if you have an older AMD GPU first

if you need the new 16.1's you can get them from that Guru 3d link in my other post , hopefully your problem was just a file problem.... so make sure you run as an Admin when you do a file verify
and its not related to a TDR ,, TDR problems are hard to get rid of in some cases
