Well you should try to contact developers. I think the problem will be somewhere in game... Maybe it is just bug and it will be patched soon!

Exact same thing is happening to me.

Played 8 hours yesterday with no problems. Quit out of the game and went to sleep. This afternoon I wake up and load the game. When I click story it just makes the select sound but doesn't do anything, same when I try to click options. It lets me click co-op and multiplayer but once I'm in either of those new menu windows I can't connect to play them. To add insult it doesn't even allow me to click the back button, that won't respond either.

I've looked through the ubi forums and multiple other forums and haven't seen anyone else post about this problem. When I looked through the ubi forums it made me a little sad at how many issues there seem to be and the complete absence of ubi responses.

If you find a fix please let us know.

Ok, i had the same problem but i got it working again, im not sure if it will work for you but i simply just downloaded patch 1.02 and it worked xD


(also if you are on torrented version from skidrow, download patch 1.02 install it, then apply the crack again.)

Same, just changed into Window mode then went to hit Story but nothing. Story and Options don't work, all that does is Exit.

Hi people, I found a way to access story and options, but there's a huge drawback, you'll see.

You have to open the file orbit_api.ini located in Ubisoft/FarCry 3/bin. Then you have to change the value. It is supposed to be set at 46 (if my memory is good). Change it to 47 or 48 or any number near 46. Save the file. Start the game, you should be able to access Story mode and options.

THE DRAWBACK: if you quit Far cry 3, and reopen it, you won't be able to access story once again. You'll have to change the value in orbit_api.ini again to another number AND you won't be able to get your saved game (which I really don't know where is stored in my computer).

So that's it. I might try to download patch 1.02 and apply the crack again.

Well that didn't help at all, there's no point without your story saving and going through all that work. Thanks anyways.

The save files for Far Cry 3 are located in C:\ProgramData\Orbit\46
If you change the orbit_api.ini value to 48 and change the folder to 48 in Orbit and do a restart, it should work.

delet your save games and restart the game... (just move them to a differentfolder rather than deleting them) the game should then start properly... save a new game then move back everything bar the config files.

as for the ini file. just save it to the desktop then drag and drop it into the required folder.
your getting access denied because c: is protected storage... a lot of games wont allow you to save directly to the install folder but will allow the drag and drop form the desktop.

try to create a shortcut of farcry3.exe at your desktop, right click on it, go to properties and add to destination "-offline" without "
