I just recently purchased Far Cry 3 and I'm now experiencing a crash (((black screen, audio still playing and a error saying "far cry 3 has stopped working))) about 20-30 mins into game play, its pretty consistent too.

My card is stock although I would like to OC in the future (ive read this guide http://www.overclock.net/t/1265110/the-gtx-670-overclocking-master-guide in an attempt to learn the ropes). I did not think OCing was necessary on the 680 for current top end gaming.


Do I need to OC my 680 (a little) to stop the FC3 crashing?
Do I need to under-clock my 680 to stop the crashing ( lol plz say no)

I do play with my settings maxed. I monitor GPU temp (under 70) and FPS ( around 60). Ive also turned down "some" settings and got the same results.
My MB has a performance mode in its BIOs which OC my cpu...pretty much like a turbo boost. I have this enabled.

This is my first PC build, so forgive me if I'm 50% retarded lol... Its obvious I'm not an OC enthusiast and did not purchase this card to get any crazy high benchmark score, but i do read the results of peoples work and I think its awesome! I definitely respect the time and effort people have placed into pushing their system to get those crazy results ...but I'm a gamer. My goal was to get a kick ass card that would be great stock and further down the road would have the capability to OC to meet the gaming demands.

Any suggestions?

If it only happens with one game, it's probably not the card or the system setup. I would think more about settings in the nVidia control panel, game settings, or drivers. You can try setting AA to application controlled and use the game controls for AA; turn off vsync in the game and use adaptive, or none, in the CP. If the game lets you cap the frame rate, try that. Adaptive power can mess with some games; you can set it to prefer max performance in each game profile, so that your card isn't running full bore watching videos. The 313.96 beta driver works well for me, and others on this forum have said the same. It sounds like you just have some tinkering with settings and maybe drivers to do here, unless you are getting crashes on all games. In that case one of the more experienced 680L users might have a suggestion.

Far Cry 3 is a tough game on some hardware combinations. Same sort of roulette GTA4 was.

Commonest recommendation to improve fps is to disable PostFX:
Quote:
Start the game and set the video settings to custom. Close the game.
Go to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Far Cry 3
Open GamerProfile.xml with texteditor (notepade).
Change Value PostFxQuality="false" and save file.
WARNING: Use it for single-player only.

I have made my GamerProfile "read only", otherwise settings can revert. In game the options only allow low PostFX, while the above turns it off.

If you are seriously into this game you should check out: http://www.overclock.net/t/1329630/official-far-cry-3-discussion-performance-thread (even if the first post has not been updated since 310.7 drivers...)

Well in the mean-time, or if you don't get it, just use the ArtMoney edit in Afterburner. Directions have been posted multiple times. Just do a thread search for 'Be careful' and I'm sure you'll find them, ha biggrinsmiley.gif

Hey wiredg, thanks for the response!

Yea it seems to just be this game. At some points during game play ive had weird graphic errors, mountains would shoot up out of the ocean or jungle all around me...but would disappear depending on the angles I viewed them(haha thats my description, although im sure there's a technical term for this type of error). I play GW2 with settings maxed, although I don't think its as graphically demanding as FC3 , it runs fine.. I did have FPS dropping to 0 whilst rotating my camera in LA on the weekend.. that was weird lol.
I actually have never adjusted any of those settings on the nVidia cp, I've only used it for selecting displays and changing to sli ( on old cards) so maybe that will help!

I'm at work now, but Ill try yours suggestions out soon as I get back. Ill let ya know how it turns out, thanks again!

Hey thanks alancsalt!
Do I find the option to disable PostFX in the Nvidia CP? I would also like to follow your lead on the game pro read only... I think that might be tricky give I purchased the FC3 on steam, and it also uses uPlay... lol so i think have have 1 million profiles lol.

I will for sure check that link out and attempt to disable PostFX when I get back!

Hey JulioCesarSF, thanks for responding! Seems like a few people are suggesting this driver. Is it a beta one? Ill grab it from Nvidia.

Mountains shooting up at you are corrupted polygons, ie: artifacts ie: card may be borked. If its doing this at stock clocks in a otherwise stable system sadly its RMA time.

Not in Nvidia CP.
  • Start the game and set the video settings to custom. Close the game.
  • Go to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Far Cry 3\GamerProfile.xml
  • Open GamerProfile.xml with texteditor (notepad).
  • Change PostFxQuality value in GamerProfile.xml to PostFxQuality="false" and save file.
  • Set to "ReadOnly" in properties or it will revert to Low next time Video Options are opened in game.

One of the few things that improved frame rate... but artifacts... I'd install 313.97 beta drivers, select "custom install" and tick "clean install".
