Friends Far Cry 3 not working as of today

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Im posting on behalf of a friend here.
He's been playing far cry 3 fine until today, but when he started steam, it updated it.

It now wont start at all. When he starts it, steam says he is playing it for about a minute, but nothing comes up.
He tried verifying the game files, which found and replaced something, but it still doesnt work.

Has anyone else had this or got any solutions to try?
Thanks smile.gif

Defrag the HDD and also update drivers.

If that doesn't work then delete it *delete local content* and download it again.

If it doesn't backup saves/profiles via Steam Cloud then be sure to back those up.

I don't know how the game's save system works, but you can easily research it.
