Hello guys if you could help me solve my issue I would be very grateful.

So the issue is I bought Farcry 3 today, downloaded it and installed it, all was going well. I started up the game the frame rate is fine my computer can handle it fine, but whenever I use my mouse to look for E.G left or right it starts to stutter/lag. Now the mouse I'm using is a razer naga and I have no idea how to solve this issue, because it's impossible to play the game and just ruins the experience.

I will leave you with my specs if that will help with anything:

Graphics card - AMD radeon HD 6770
Processor - AMD athlon(tm) II X4 620
RAM - 4GB
Monitor - 1360 x 768/ 720p
Mouse - Razer Naga

Cheers guys,
Toonzqt

lag might be down to the graphics being to high. try turning off v-sync and turning down texture and shadow details and see if you still get lag :)

Yeah turn off Vsync. There's an inherent lag when Vsync is enabled, and also your PC isn't nearly enough to keep the framerate at 60 constant, so it's dropping to 30 or 20 constantly.

Tried everything you said, still the same lag/choppiness when I move the mouse.

Hm I turned it off in game and on the AMD CC, still appears to be lagging when I move the mouse only?

You do realize that your PC barely meets the minimum specs to play the game right?

I meant AMD HD 7770 if that makes anything better, anyway, have you got any ways on how to help or?

have you tried updating graphics drivers, doing a system rating and closing any un-needed software/apps alwell as turning all ingame graphics settings to low ?

Theres nothing you can do outside of lowering the resolution, turning down the graphics settings. You need to upgrade if you want to play games at high or max them.

The OP's issue is NOT frame rate, he clearly states it. Mouse lag is known issue in Far Cry 3 on PC (and I believe Far Cry 2 as well, but I didn't see that myself) due to poor porting from consoles, I read that has to do with developers bypassing directx for input, but that's out of my technical league. Other users with high end systems have reported the same issue, it's not his specs.

Sorry OP, can't help you. I'm experiencing the same issue myself and it's utterly annoying, and I haven't found any solution yet than to just learn to deal with it. Developers porting games from consoles to PC serving us a cold plate again.

I am having this same issue. My PC can handle this easily
i5 3570K
Asus GTX 680 TOP
Corsair Vengeance 8gb
Asus P8Z77V- LK
Corsair HX 750

I can get 60 FPS all day but when I move my mouse the frames drop. I can look around slowly but if I make quick movements the frames plummet. Any help/solution is appreciated!

Hello again,

Sorry about taking a while to update, but I just wanted to let you know that I solved my issue by disabling mouse acceleration in the game options.. I've read in forums that this helps some people (it did help me), but for others does nothing.

You probably already finished the game by now, but it might be of use for someone else in case you have.

Good luck!

I have the exact same offer, my FPS are good, but sometimes when i move mouse it gets stuck of stutters. Sometimes my mouse wont even work at all, like sometimes when i try to look around and move my mouse, the game wont respond and my character just stays in the same position. This gets really annoying in gunfights. Again, its not low fps, its just that the mouse wont respond sometimes. I notice that it usually happens when i play the game for a while, not right away. Maybe its overheating? Any help please. My specs are down below in my signature.

Try HiAlgoBoost or HiAlgoswitch. It should remove your stuttering...

HiAlgo SWITCH v0.1 released. What it does: toggles resolution with a click of a button. Works for DX9 games.

Verified so far (on an AMD Graphics card):

I have the Solution is HERE:

I have the "lag" in full screen

Going borderless didn't fix the issue for me but it did help me notice that when I turn to the left (it only happens when i move the mouse left) the borders show up; almost like I've moused out of the window. When it does that, I turn around to the right 360 degrees and then I can turn left normally with no issues. It's almost like it's losing the mouse.

What's odd is that i've put a ton of hours in and got 2/3 of the way through the game before it started doing this.
