Here'a an idea, how about we console owners get patch 1.02.
Like that will happen...
LMAO jeez I thought the hate between xbox & ps owners was bad but pc owners really do take the p**s, or is there an actual good honest reason as to why I got so many disagrees just for asking for a patch for the console community ???
Pc gamers didnt disagree, there are just random disagree trolls on N4G Interesting that you assumed pc gamers tho
dang no DX11 updates .. maybe next time :-/
sort it out
How this game gets these great reviews when it runs like shit on most pc's is beyond me.
On the contrary, the general consensus is that Far Cry 3 is actually a very well optimized game.
Yeah right, go to the forums, it runs poor on even the top end machines. The AA & Vsync isn't optimised causing crashes & micro stuttering. I've got it, it's the worst game I've ever had problems with, also my steam friends all have the exact same issues. Nice one below. It won't happen on the console version as the Vsync isn't on, it tears all over the place & it's as jaggie as hell. As for my PC, it has got a 680 funny enough.
'^ Isn't that how I'm supposed to respond? I'm new to acting like a PC d-bag. ' Try stringing a decent sentence together. It helps. What's a PC d-bag for a start? I've had to turn a few settings down, but I've got a steady 60 fps. I'm seeing none of these problems you are talking about iistuii. I have a 2500k and a 570gtx for reference sake.
Agree with ThatEnglishDude: The game, for the most part, is very well optimized. Drivers are main issue and new ones can make a huge difference--but drivers are often the issue anyways for PC games (especially new ones). I've crashed once so far but I've been pushing my card to the limit which isn't the game's fault. I have a 680 ftw edition btw. Second arrived today... can't wait to get off work. 4x+ msaa is biggest issue for one 680 but I'm using 2x2x2 at 1440p anyways so games's AA can suck it.
I got much better results from disabling some of the in-game settings and using Nvidia Inspector instead. Something seemed screwy about the in-game AA. http://cloud-2.steampowered...
Welcome to any PC game out there. I'm just going to go out on a limb here and assume you've not played many PC games before if you consider this the worst game you've experienced having problems with. It is known that the AA is bringing down the framerate, granted - but I hardly think that warrants calling it one of the worst PC releases in a long time. I suspect the majority of this games issues lie within the drivers. I run an i5 with a GTX570 and am able to run all on a mix of ultra/high @ 1080p (with AA off / vsync on) and able to maintain a steady 40+FPS. I'm also not naive enough to assume that just because it works well on my PC, that it must work on everyone's, but in my own personal experience - there's far less optimized games out there.
@iistuii I have to agree AND DISAGREE with you on this one. I can agree with you that it definitely does not run as well as it should. I've got a beast of a rig and still have major framerate issues with any AA setting above x2 (at x8 I'm lucky to get 15fps), but to discred the game due to (hopefully) temporary technical issues would be a little unfair as with all this aside, far cry 3 is an amazing game :)
amazing game, looks phenomenal on PC.
I just tried it again with the update and when I drove to kill a guy who has been poaching, my jeep just starts to run into stuff out of nowhere. I guess some may not be experiencing any bugs but I certainly am.
No your not alone. Trust me. @ Rupert, I've a 680 & i5 o/c 4 gig, I can max out any game thrown at it, but this one just causes problems. It runs exactly the same on Ultra as on low, so I know it's not the PC. The new nvidia drivers helped the framerate, but caused crashes, so I reinstalled my older drivers. Awaiting a patch, but a better one than this.
Unfortunately that's PC gaming for you--can run perfect or not at all for some even with same or close specs due to different systems. For those that experience problems, sorry as I know it sucks :(. Sometimes finding fixes are a pain and its why consoles have such a huge following.
hey, i also had the stuttering issue and now it is gone. if any1 has a Radeon HD 4800, update all drivers. Then go to options and 3d applications. Set/check everything to allow application to use its own settings. If that does not work keep messing around in 3d applications. Game runs greate now. To everyone else that has no issues. This game has stuttering frame rate for alot of people. It seems to be because of conflicts with drivers/settings. A good patch can help.
I don't get the complaints... the reviews were all solid for a reason. The ONE bad review was clearly written by someone who didn't understand how to configure their PC. Running a 660Ti OC'ed with an i5 OC'ed and some very high speed RAM all on an SSD. Not only does the game run flawlessly on Ultra (even with MSAA and recording w/ FRAPS @ 1080p), but I have never once seen a significant bug/glitch occur. Clocked about 8 hours total so far. All kinds of different settings applied. No issues from various patches or drivers. The biggest issue is UPlay... it is garbage. Running UPlay inside of Steam leads to a somewhat unstable MP/Co-Op game.
Who has more than 32 cores here?
It might mean logical cores... but even then it's a pretty high number.
they need to fix the shadows on the ps3 version. it looks horrible.
