Turning it to low doesn't help you need to actually edit the .xml file... Hrm... As I posted this I realized mine got changed back to default. you need to set the file to read only so it doesn't happen. Here is the correct code to turn it off. Edit it for your settings obviously or just change it to this and then edit in game, and then set read only again. The game will still says Postfx: low

I fixed the code. It is now 2x msaa @ all ultra ( vsync + postfx disabled)

Gonna try w/ adaptive vsync like someone said.

Ok adaptive vsync+triple buffering is awesome! Running 50-60 fps all the time very minimal screen tearing ( did a trial of the rakyat the one where you have the sniper rifle and unlimited ammo) no drops to 30 like normal vsync.

yay so now I get decent frames + vsync. Awesome i'm ready for my second play through.

Do I edit it in XML form? If so, how do I save it?

i use notepad my self. Oh I am using a gamepad also so you might want to find the gamepad line and change it to 0 if you are using mouse/KB.

Oh you were the one who said use adaptive. + rep man awesome! I had always heard to stay away from adaptive and I never had any issues w/ normal vsync before but this game has bugs I guess.

If you just go to the start menu and type GamerProfile.xml it will pop up, you can right click it and hit edit with notepad. then when done close notepad + right click it again and set read only.

O and I'm glad Adaptive worked out for you thumb.gif

as long as the code is right and the file ending is .xml it works fine for me.... are you on windows 7? Note pad just asks me if I want to over write the other file.

The file is C:\Users\Username\Documents\My Games\Far Cry 3\GamerProfile.xml

Thanks
PS. I am running windows 8 if that matters.

No ideas??
