Even on ultra, the game looks outdated by several years. The Dunia engine has not aged well AT ALL.

Is it good; is it actually worth robbing a few banks for ?

£20 cheaper than on Steam... Even better for the Deluxe version...

Far Cry 5


[re: Lt_Swan] [link to this post]
 
Been playing it a for a couple of days but now for some unknown reason it won't start

I'd forgotten about the joys of PC gaming

I tried this and it loads but then just freezes.

Here is the way I solved the problem. In the properties of FarCry5.exe in the game directory choose to launch the program in the compatibility mode with windows 8. Now the game launches perfect for me.

Absolute load of old [censored]

I've put my joystick away now. I think I'll buy uncharted 4 on the PS instead

Sounds obvious, but have you tried signing out of uplay and back in again? Also, is uplay linked to your Steam account? Mine was, and I ďunlinkedĒ it. Steam [censored] about with the controller settings all the time, but the game automatically recognises it as a DS4, without the need for the Input Mapper [DS4 tool].

I had a nightmare trying to get a stable frame rate after using the Nvidia control panel to change the native frequncy of my screen down to 30Hz. so I decided that restarting after every change was safest. Now it sits locked at 30fps in 4k High. It manages 4k Ultra at around 50fps, but rare[ish] drops then go below 30fps and I canít tolerate stutter on any game.

So solid 30fps is best. Iíve had four or five crashes so far, and I canít record gameplay at all for some reason. Shadowplay records a black screen in game, but manages to capture the menus. Wondershare captures sound only, and GameDVR doesnít recognise it as a game, full stop. Which is a shame because my 60mph head on collision with a Bison on a quad bike [me on the quad bike, not the Bison] was hilarious, and is what FarCry open worlds have always been about for me.

Iíve tried turning off the uplay in game overlay, but to no avail.

Also, the arcade mode has some fun user created content. Havenít been anywhere near the PvP rubbish, just assault and survival modes. You earn money and perk points every game you play, but surprise surprise, a glitch is stopping them from bolstering your ampaign mode finances. The banner says something along the lines of ďWe are aware of the problem with arcade mode - please bear with us.Ē frown

So aside from the problems what do you guys think of the game? worth getting at the current price?

I will hopefully be getting 76 Mbit FTTP installed next week which will make downloading new games much less painful than the current 5-6 Mbps we get. Hopefully also stop the horrible lag spikes I get currently.

Tried the signing out bit and it's not linked to my steam account. Doesn't make sense as it was running fine and I'd done quite a bit already with my red neck friends but now it's [censored]

Haven't tried arcade mode yet
