I don't actually think uPlay is that bad. I like the fact that you earn points which you can use to unlock in game items and missions with.
Hopefully that's something that we'll see more services use in the future, maybe even Steam (or next-gen consoles).

AFAIK you're able to preload the game on uPlay thumb.gif

Is this true? Have any of you guys in the US been able to preload the game yet from Uplay? I have a copy of the game from the AMD Never Settle pack that I already cashed in on Uplay but the game does not show up yet for me to preload.

You have to use VPN to get it registered, then use offline mode to start the game from with in steam via the Play button.

F**k yes! I finally got SLI to work. I now play with these settings:

1080p
V-SYNC off
No buffered frames
DX11
2x MSAA
Alpha To Coverage - Advanced
HBAO
FoV 90
Textures - High
Ambient Lightning - High
Shadow - Ultra
Post FX - Ultra
Geometry - Ultra
Vegetation - Very High
Terrain - High
Water - Very High
Environment - High

And it looks like I'm now getting constant 60-80 fps (91 fps is the highest I've gotten so far, while hang-gliding), while I had everything from 30 to high 50's before. Both of my cards are now being used, I checked wih NV Inspector just to confirm.

The edited DX11 bit didn't work for me, but the fix I posted earlier worked perfectly thumbsupsmiley.png
LINK for the lazy ones.


EDIT:
I may have spoken too soon. I got a significant FPS boost, see pics:








... but now I suddenly get huge FPS drops whenever I shoot an enemy or animal using anything but explosives or arrows doh.gif
If anything though, this has made me confident that the issues we're having are easily solvable by Nvidia. Hopefully, we'll see a patch soon.

The new betas generate errors on install for me. Had to reinstall twice. Got the latest one working today. Absolutely no change in framerate whatsoever for me compared to 306.97.


Kind of a spoiler, but doing the flamethrower, destroy the crop and boat mission, I only had the flamethrower because I hadn't done the crafting, and as soon as i got on the dock the boat would leave....(need a rocket launcher)

so I swam out in front of the boat, putting it between me and the shore, and the boat started, but the guys on it got killed by their own men trying to shoot me, even cleared some of the docks.....so all I had to do was climb onto the near dock and set the boat on fire, kaboom, mission complete... swim away....

Thank you Never Settle bundle for the free game. thumb.gif

I got the game free with a 7870 myself, running the latest 12.11 Beta 8 drivers this is how the game runs for me. The game doesn't really utilize 6 cores any better than 4 so your cpu being similar to mine you should get performance in the same range.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1329630/post-your-frames-far-cry-3-performance-thread-nvidia-310-64-drivers-add-38-to-farcry-3-new-patch-out-1-01/200_20#post_18716481

With the driver update for this game due out Monday it'll likely get better. Can't run 8xMSAA simply because it chugs along when motion blur kicks in. Driving/gliding and the fps drops, but once the patch is out it should be plenty fine.
