I don't mean to sound like a douche since a lot of people are having trouble running this, but, assuming all of you could play this at an minimum of 59fps, what changes would you make to nvidia inspector to increase the graphical fidelity?

Only problem now is if I shoot anything that leaves a mark. It slows down to 20 fps if there is a single bullet decal. I might just have to play this one in DX9.
Are there any comparisons online?

Yes the bullet decal issue with SLI, check my First Post, You fix it by adding the correct Hex code in Nvidia inspector.

Thanks mate. I think it's OK now. I am getting some pretty bad stuttering. FPS is in the 60s though.
Also my top card is hitting 85c! I got an Asus warning pop up as well which I haven't seen before. It was very unhappy with how hot the pci lane was. How do people keep the top card cool?

I just max the fan speed, and put Vsync for Single player Games, my top card hovers at 68C, fan at MAX, and it's mid summer in South Africa, so it's HOT!

Runs fine for me, 2560x1440, no AA, HBAO, everything else on max. I've seen it go to a minimum of about 35 fps, but it mostly hovers around 45 or more. 2x AA is doable but has too much of a hit compared to the visual gain, so I just turned it off. I have to say this game doesn't really look all that aliased by default so I don't really miss it either.

I thought of that at first too, and it allmost put me off, but I have to say that though it certainly doesn't go for the most realistic graphics, it does look damn good, and the cartoony-ness is really not as bad as some screenshots make you believe.
As far as graphics go though, I found it rather funny to notice that the water, just like FC2, actually looks less good than the original.

Vsync is probably a good idea. With the fans on the 660tis on max it would be very loud! What coolers do your 670s have?

this game runs fine and it is fun/beautiful. I respect your opinion....Ok I don't biggrin.gif

HDAO performs about 10FPS less than HBAO for me, while still being inferior to the latter
i've added it to main post thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

Thanks for the info, was running dual 5850's a week ago, had no reason to even think about SSAO settings with those cards.

That can be alleviated by changing the DX11 compatibility bits as specified earlier on this thread. Thing is though that I have a 20 FPS drop if i go with this code as opposed to the nVidia default one though it is still far better considering the annoying drop in fps when shooting.

open farcry 3 profile with inspector, and change SLI bits for DX11
