Re: Far Cry 5

In reply to a post by Lt_Swan:
I've tried rebooting. Even had to do it to get out of the game
Hmmm.

The four or five occasions it has crashed on me so far, it landed at an “Ooops! It’s crashed” window in Uplay, where you can send a crash report. I wonder if the crash has caused a conflict with your privacy/firewall settings in some way? Have you tried launching Uplay in offline mode?


Edit: just googled “can Uplay be started in offline mode?” And this was the first hit:
Also, if you wish to force the client to start directly in offline mode, you can tick the Always start Uplay in Offline Mode box in the client Settings, or via the main menu by selecting Go Offline. While in Offline Mode, most features will be unavailable, but you can start your game from the Games tab as usual.

Re: Far Cry 5

I was playing it again last night. Something to do with being online. I had been allowing it to access the net through zone alarm but only each time it asked. The other day I set it to remember my choice and that's when it went wrong. I allow access but there's one last option that I don't have time to click before the game starts so I guess that's it

Bloddy typical I bought it on the PC so that I could play it online with you lot haha

49lb Sturgeon and I reeled in another that I think was even bigger but got shot and killed by the pikeys just as it was landed so I never saw the weight

I can play the game ok now (as long as I haven't clicked the last zonealarm allow) but when I leave I have to reset everything to get my PC back online. Right pain in the [censored]

Surely the obvious answer would be to say bye-bye to Zone Alaram ?

Is all I’ve used for the last 3 years or so. Got fed up with performance getting bogged down by most third party options. Don’t even get me started on Norton 360...

Right I turned off zonealarm and turned on windows defender
Started uplay and it patched farcry, now I'm getting the failed to locate game message

[censored] rubbish

I give up. If I'd have known I was going to have to put up with this [censored] I'd never have bought the [censored] thing
I was actually enjoying it. Wish I'd bought it for the PS now. Oh well lesson learned
