I remember having such a similar problem in Far Cry 2 and I fixed it by capping the framerate at 60 fps.

I tried DX9 with all the settings to minimum(well below what would be required to maintain 60fps in the situations it occurs if not just period. I try to avoid MSI AB etc. if I am not OC'ing the GPU so I don't have anything to monitor with at the moment. Temps are def not the issue on a 780Ti though they just throttle at 70C well below anything considered dangerous. The strange part was UBI support was aware of the issue and others experience it too however the "fix" provided doesn't work for me since the only way to boot the game is through Uplay without a crash. They want me to add a command string to a shortcut(which doesn't function to boot the game) to alleviate it. Why this couldn't be patched into the game is beyond me.

I believe the value is "-norigidchars

I also may be doing this wrong because I have never needed to add a script to boot a game right. I tend to use compat mode and if something doesn't work past that I tend to just move on to some other game. Sadly FC3 seems like Skyrim with guns and cars and I would love to enjoy it.

Again thanks for the suggestions and the time you took to respond. biggrin.gif

If you cant run the game through the Far Cry 3 executable from steamapps then there might be a problem on your end. That launching option might actually help you with your issue as well so it is worth considering as well as worth looking into why you cant launch the game apart from using UPLAY.

so there really is a FC4, but its just a beta type thing ?

I'm not playing FC3 until I can max it with ~60fps. My CF was horrible at it, and 1 7950 can't handle it.

A PC kb/m is way more fun than a 'controller' for this game. But that is just me . . .

Yeah you are also the only one who is running the game without any issues, but that is just you.
