Seriously,i am at about 15 hours i think,and so far,i haven't even seen a single flicker.Not the tiniest bug one could imagine of.And that's on an extremely open world game

How can you people have crashes and glitches and corrupted graphics,when i am perfect with a 3 year old PC playing the game almost maxed out 1920 x 1200 with not the smallest hiccup


UPDATE

So i went into multiplayer and coop,i'm level 30

NO lag,NO freezes,NO bugs (except a missing objective once,suicided and it got fixed),No bad performance

Thankfully im pretty much the same mate. I occasionally have this annoying thing happen where i ctd. Minus the crash part, i just have to click on the icon and the games takes off again. apart from that nothing major. Noticed a few floating objects here and there. But like you say, with the size of the place, you cant complain.

So far so good. Graphics are cranked up. Sweetfx. Can live with 30/35 fps, with the quality im getting. About 8 hours in. SP only. Havent tried MP yet. eek!

I'm with you on this, Geo. I've got no problems so far, besides one crash while selling items. Thanks to the autosave system, though, I didn't loose any progress.
I have not tried multiplayer, and from what I've read, I won't. Buying a Far Cry game for the multiplayer IMO is silly. The main focus is on singleplayer, and I consider the multiplayer a bonus.

So far so good for me
No computer or video issues at all

I have had a couple times where the game locked up, but no big deal
I was selling back a bunch of plants one at a time. A
fter selling back maybe 6 the game locked up
But I was in a safe house and nothing was lost

I guess that is not zero, but the game plays smooth without any stutters, etc

My video card is not even that great, it's a AMD Raedeon HD6670
The computer is an 8 core AMD machine at 3.10 ghz

I have been somewhat lucky too I guess, only one crash to desktop.... Oh now I get it :).... ok so only one CTD at the point where I shot a tiger and was about to skin it. Not sure if the fact that I shot the tiger was out of sync with the actual game play... but that was it. Nothing since then. My 440 display card struggled at first as the optimal settings where not satisfactory and I had to turn a few bling bits off.

Nope. I've got no problems here and it runs like a dream, both single and multiplay.

SLI'd gtx680's, i7 3779k oc'd to 4.5ghz, 32gb of RAM, WIN 8 pro...


Only issues i have are completely aesthetical... just give us more HUD options, increase draw distance, etc etc. Nothing that's breaking the game by any means.

I have zero problems in Singleplayer. Only thing I wish for is to have some of those pesky console-kiddo-thingies removed. But the MOD-community is getting us there.
4 core cpu and an nVidia 550 something graphics card running on Win 7 64 bit.

And no. I haven't played Multiplayer. And frankly it would probably irritate me to no end.
Last time I was on any multiplayer I was surrounded by kids behaving badly and being super obnoxious.
The kangaroo approach to playing is not for me.

When there is permadeath in MP, so that you are "out" until next day will probably be my favourite. That will slow the game down to a point where it isn't the team running around like maniacs who wins, but instead the team who thinks and plans.

I forgot at add that I am interested in MP, but I am still finishing SP

If mods can come up with a FFA mod, I'll play some MP

The only bug is the weapons not leveling, that is the only issue I have in Co-Op. So yes, I mispoke and should have mentioned the weapons not leveling. But seriously, that is absolutely the only issue I have had in Co-Op. I connect fine, no lag (graphically or latency), play is as smooth as my SP experience, no issues with menu's or any function of the Profile. Not sure what issues with Co-Op there are as I've not experienced anything beyond the weapons not leveling.

So you think that just because you haven't encountered any bugs, the thousands of other players out there who have encountered bugs are.. what, lying? Insane?

One person's experience is not indicative of the bigger picture. Bugs in PC games are rarely universal - they affect certain configs & not others. Some bugs are universal and they are quickly patched away. Although imo you probably have encountered bugs & just not realized it. It sort of depends on your definition of a "bug." The game is very poorly optimized - FPS drops are quite common and texture pop-in is hideous; if you haven't noticed that, then it's probably just because you aren't looking.

Make sure you game isn't running in "borderless" or "windowed" mode as they are both windowed mode. This will destroy Framerate. If you ALT-TAB or accidentalyl hit the windows key while in game, it will set it back to bordeless for alot of people. Always make sure it's set to "Fullscreen"

Alsotry disabling ingame MSAA and using it from your cards control panel. If you think its causing too much of a performance hit regardless, just diable MSAA and set your post process effects to highest setting, and it enables FXAA.

Remember not to use ingame vsync... set it to adaptive in your card's software control panel. Vsync in the game is 1 for 60fps, 2 for 30fps, but its "iffy"/

also, if your running SLI and the latest drivers (or if you applied the nvidia inspector SLI fix) and you can confirm both cards are working, then you may have forgot to add the decal framerate fix. You can to set the bits in DX1x mode for Farcry 3's dx11 executable to a different setting in SLI, or you'll get terrible framerates.

I haven't had much issue hardware wise.

I get texture pop ins constantly, and I thought Borderlands 1/2 were bad. Other then that, it's graphically sound for me.

Every voice-over and even generic sounds like gun-fire sound like they used 44.1kHz sample rates if not lower. I have tried everything to get this fixed, Ubisoft tech support is at a loss, so I'm screwed there I guess.

Don't even get me started on multiplayer, one of the worst experiences I've ever had. Joining others games, weapon saves, loadout saves, lost data decoding entries, lag, etc.

I think if you just make a video of you driving a boat, I will easily point out the terrible texture pop-in that is rampant or the horrible distances that actually get more blurry when you look through the camera. How about the mounted weapons on boats not hitting boats that are only about 200 yards out as the bullets magically disappear until the boat is 50 yards from you. How about the most aweful gun sites known to mankind. How about the wildy enormous amount of rounds it takes to kill large animals, it makes me feel like my m14 assault rifle with a .308 high powered round is a bb gun. Also, why do I need to use a sniper rifle for enemies that are only 100 or so yards away? Because you can barely see them. The distances that are seen with the naked eye are terrible. The entire game is a clear mess of a console port and made for hardware that is 8 years old. Also, you cant even use the awesome open world when tackling missions. Say you want to go around and flank an enemy during one of the story mission...oh, no can do as the game will kill you for being out of bounds. The story makes you play in a very small defined space. Sure the bandit bases can be tacked anyway but its a huge lack of synchronicity.

I guess if you dont see or mind defects, your statement is true.

Defected. Just because BF3 is working, does not mean its working in Farcry 3. The drivers can be buggy per game... just because its enabled and working in one game is not always the case for another.

as of launch day, it did not work correctley with the 310.64 nvidia drivers even though it was suppose to.

Alot of us had to apply part 1 and part 2 of that fix to patch it. We had to confirm via temp and GPU usage monitors it actually was working.

Even with 310.70, it still didnt automatically fix it for everyone for some reason, evne if it pulled in the updated profile. Some still had to use nvidia inspector to set it manually.

You have to add the DX11 exetuable to the Farcry 3 profile in nvidia inspector, enable the corret SLI setting code, and then correct the D3D1X bits to the correct setting.

I used Msi afterburner to check GPU usage and they are both working . I have went through Bios updates nothing works - Old drivers new drivers . I tried that fix it did not work . Something to do with NPC not the image or textures .

I know your gonna hate this.. but trying backing up your data, repartioning your drive (if your os is not on a seperate partiton or drive), reinstalling your OS to a cleanly formatted drive, install and update all drivers, and then reinstall the game.

Sounds like you've literally tried everything but dropping the nuke... and thats probably what its gonna require.

It's possible your DX11 modules are busted... this was the case for a buddy runnin on a gtx670 and i72600k game where nothing would solve it. It was either that or one of the restributable package updates over time messed up his OS and directx. reformatted, reinstalled, and bam... works fine.

I haven't encountered many problems at all in SP (wouldn't know about MP) really. I think I've had maybe one or two CTD's since I began playing on launch day, and despite my older rig, I'm getting a decent framerate. All told I'm quite surprised it runs quite as well as it does on this comp, but this is a particularly glaring similarity among the people having so many issues - most of their hardware is really new.

I'm getting about 40 - 60 fps (on a 60Hz monitor) with high to very high settings. Strangely I noticed an overall performance drop on South Island compared to the North. Here is my rig:

A reviewer said about Driver Max

Pros
Be careful because not all drivers are right for your laptop or computer. Your best bet is to install one per day and allow at least one restart to make sure the driver is right. Always choose to create a restore point.

DriverMax does not always detect that the latest driver is, in fact, installed and will mark it as out of date. I keep a log of the drivers and versions I've installed and compare the DriverMax recommendations against that list.

Yo... Before reinstalling windows...

Try opening command console with admin priviliges and run:
sfc /scannow

It's worth a shot if theres something wrong with windows before the hassle of reinstalling it. :)

I updated some drivers using driver max and updated to the newest bios . This is the trial mode where each kill you switch out guns

As dead bodies build up over 4 mins you can see my frames drop each benchmark

Well it's allways worth a shot because ... **** I hate re-installing and that thing has saved me from that a few times.



As bodies pile up I'd expect the fps to drop but that last minimum of 24 is nasty.

I can't tell you if thats expected for your system. You'll have to ask someone with similar hardware.

I've had no crashes, 20 hours played. Guess I'm one of the lucky ones. (SP only)

I have been extremely lucky the first night I owned it I started messing with the display settings cause everything looked like it had tracers but I then realized I had just eaten too much pot cookies. ( Don't worry they are legal in my state) I had one freeze up while trying to fast travel after about 30 to 40 hours of play. Other than that I can only say the only problem I have is Jason doesn't pick his feet up enough and stubs his toes a lot on slight changes in elevation (rocks, bridge planks, door jambs) which is funnier than annoying. Except the door jamb thing can keep me stuck out of buildings jumping around and squatting like an idiot until I finally slip past. Oh and the hold E to skin animal doesn't pop up unless I'm staring at a very small stop on the animals rump and the perfect distance from it. It seems weird I can just target any part of the animal and get it. It's another mere annoyance and nothing game breaking. Love this game I have a feeling it will continue to shock and awe me with it's immersive beauty and excellent game play. Oh and I'm using a GEFORCE GTX 660m 2gb card (latest drivers not beta) with 8gb of RAM and an INTEL CORE i7

Well, that's very good for you.
I have a problem with chapter 8, where I can't see and therefore not use my weapons I've earned and bought so far. Not even use my mellee-button.
So the save001.sav or save002.sav (in c:\ProgramData|Orbit|46 as you probably know by now) is corrupted, I guess.
I played it twice so far upto chptr 8, but the same problem.
Could you send me your singleplayer save005.sav or save006.sav to see if that's the solution?
If not through here, then through rhofman.3@live.nl
Thanxx

No problems at all :)

Then again I NEVER have any problems with running games.

I also run lots of really old games that dont support new hardware or OS, but with a few tweaks and stuff these also run fine.

I appreciate certain people can have problems, but if something works fine they just play it! If it doesn't work, they complain by coming here.

So with that in mind it just seems like there are lots of problems......like ANY game forums on release! I often believe its the minority - sorry.

However, im not saying bugs can't happen, sometimes they do get through testing and end up effecting a larger group of players. These bugs are usually patched quickly, but like any 'new' software/hardware you can often expect a few problems, its not ideal, but games these days are so much more complicated as gamers want something new/better each time.

If you do have problems, just go play something else for a bit and come back in a few weeks! OR buy the game a few weeks after release.

Still, at the end of the day people need to complain and report problems so the game can be patched to support more configurations and possibly add new features (like the to be soon released HUD patch). In a way you are testing for the company, if you dont like that, then as stated above, wait a while!

It would be nice for a game to be released with no errors at all and everything to be perfect, but get your head out the clouds....its not going to happen......it does suck though!

I am running a high-end system but still running into low frames and God awful texture fade ins

There's nothing wrong with your set up man. It's about the typical fps you're getting using a high end system. Legit overclocking sites (like http://www.hardocp.com (http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/12/05/far_cry_3_video_card_performance_preview/)) did some testing on the game & they too have more or less the same result as you & me. The game engine is graphic hungry beast. It can probably be improved using better drivers in the future but I doubt that it will have any significant performance increase.

Others who posted this above highly average performance they're getting either just exaggerating or got blinded & refused to acknowledge the fact that the game needs some fixing cuz they really like the game & want nothing but for the game to succeed.

Same here. Rarely have any problems and the ones I do have (Eyefinity scaling, some flickering and pop ins.) I have remedied temporarily until they fix it. Either way, I am thoroughly enjoying this game and it is the best FPS I have played in a very long long time. I just hope UBIshoft fixes these other issues so everyone can enjoy.
