Have you tried using different SLI bits to give you added performance without the skipping?

Hey Bradley!

It is a combination of SweetFx and my config, bare in mind the config I use reduces the lime green fake over saturated foliage that the game uses by default, I much prefer a more natural look. If you want to use exactly what i have from those screenshots grab my Mod compilation here and my SweetFX settings (also from that link)

* Most of the config tweaks have been injected into the patch.dat file as well. Such as enhanced geometry, shadow distance, decals and clouds. These settings can not always be added to the XML.... and need to be tweaked in the game code. Also, you might notice the clouds are less bright and have a a completely new texture for a more natural look.

Hello mate.
So what kind of fps am I expecting to be reduced by? I remember using SweetFX on this game before and it reduced the fps by around 7fps.

Depends on your settings. Avoid Bloom and HDR if you're worried about performance. SMAA shouldn't be too bad but it will still reduce FPS.

SweetFX in Far Cry 3 is overrated. There's not MUCH you can do to alter the game. I feel as though SweetFX is best when a game has something drastically wrong with its colors and you need SweetFX to correct them. I seriously just used LiftGammaGain in the screenshots people were asking me about. Pretty much no FPS loss and made the game look a decent bit better... which is about all you can hope for.

Nope, haven't bothered yet. Any particular ones that you've found work?

So for that link you posted...I've been looking for a good SweetFX preset, so I might get that file. And I can replace my GamerProfile with yours. But about the Compilation...if I don't want all that extra stuff, I can just get the High-Res Textures Mod from the Far Cry 3 Mods thread and I'll be basically where you're at now?

jim2point0 has a good sweetfx profile by the looks of it as well. Can you share?
btw, thank you once again Milamber my good friend. I've downloaded your XML and SweetFX.

Edit: AMD Users, I can confirm for myself that bioshock.exe profile is better for us 7970 users. Also, use Radeonpro to set the Render ahead setting to 5, and enable triple buffer and lock the fps to the same as you're refresh rate. It helps a lot for me. far less stutter and less fps drops/lag. It plays much better in CF now. Do not force bioshock.exe profile via rad pro as it conflicts with FC3 for some reason.

As for SLI, try this:
310.70
If that does not seem to help, many report 306 version to be helpful. Changing the SLI bits is no longer needed since these drivers have been released.
Man you Nvidia people have been lucky with this game so far. AMD have screwed us over on this AMD evolved title.

Not sure, works like butter on my rig. I have no knowledge of AMD cards or their performance / problems etc.

Perhaps try it and see, I have added more screenshots.

If I just use your XML and sweetFX, can I expect image quality like that, or do I need that list of mods?

You will need to use the mods for the texture toning, but I would start with the SweetFX config and the XML file, make sure that XML file is read only. If you need anything adjusting like brightness/inverted mouse disabled let me know.

Well further testing shows pretty much that 1 GPU works best still. I though disabling one of my 3 GPUs was helping but then I tried disabling two GPU's and just using one GPU I have about 10 fps higher on average and less jerkiness. Pretty sad really. Once again another game that runs better with a single GPU. My 7970's are going on sale. I had enough of this.
Milamber : I found it a few hours ago and figured out which one of those folders you linked had the profile I tired it out with 3, 2 and 1 GPU it runs best for me with 1 GPU. And I only get about 70FPS and 80% GPU usage its nice defiantly looks good. I'm using those setting with a few changes now with "medium postfx" and "high Geometry". To get a nice 90fps.
The game has no scaling at all with more GPUS's. I get 7-12 fps less with a second card and 2-5fps on top of that less with a third card. Milamber, I'm wondering since you get 60FPS and are able to render twice for 3D. I'm wondering if 2D does yours FPS scale up from there can you get 90 to 120 FPS in 2D ? if answer is no then, I probably could render 3D and 60FPS too I'm thinking maybe this game just isn't made to push high frame rates, like I'm trying to achieve.

On another note this game is one of the best games I played in awhile. Everything except for the stutter and low FPS is great. I'm really hoping for nice drivers and fixes and some texture mods this game will be second to none, too bad I'll be done with the game by then though.
