Solved

Far Cry 3 scope no crosshair.

I know that it has many other threads about this issue but I tried most of them and the problem is still persist. So I post my spec on here hopefully to get this fixed. When I zoom in with the bow or the sniper rifles I don't have any crosshairs on the scopes. Like the red dot on the bow for example, has no red dot there. Its just a transparent piece of glass, which makes the aiming impossible. Especially with the sniper rifles, because its like firing from the hip, but without the crosshair lines which at least indicate where the middle of the screen is. So yeah- its like trying to aim through a magnifying glass.
A solution to fix this would be great.
Thank you.

I would attach my Dxdiag on but it doesn't have the option to so Imma post a screenshot of it. (I'm using AMD 7850 Stock clock)

    hi alankevis.

    This is usually an anti aliasing problem.

    First you need to go to you AMD Vision Engine control panel, and set all options to application controlled.

    Next you need to be sure you are loading the game with the Farcry3_d3d11.exe file, and not the Farcry3.exe file, otherwise you will be playing the game in DX9 mode on your DX11 card. Farcry3_d3d11.exe can be found in the same directory as Farcry.exe.

    You should then be able to change all you AA settings in game to however you like them.

    I am pretty confident this should fix it. I have the same problem, but I have a DX10 vid card, so not much I can do really.

    Good luck

    Are you still having this problem with your dx10 card? I have the same problem, but fixed it somehow, if you are using ATI card, and use ccc, use these settings for farcry3.exe in your ccc :

    Anti-aliasing :
    use application settings
    I have filter set on box and AA on 2x

    Antisotropic filtering:
    2x


    Catalyst AI:
    standard

    minimap :
    high quality

    Wait for vertical refresh:
    off, unless application specifies

    And the rest is unchecked

    I don't know wich setting did it but that worked for me...

    Good luck!
