Here is exactly what happens:
Launch game from Steam
strange screen pops up with an empty dialogue box in the middle
cursor overlaps when I move it
click "ok" on the empty dialogue box
another loading screen
"Far Cry 3 has stopped working"
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
AMD Phenom II X4 3.2 Ghz
8 gigs of RAM
Nvidia Geforce GT 520 2 gigs (not the best video card but I figured I could play the game on low settings until my GTX 660 Ti comes in the mail)
I have tried everything. Please help.
I stated that thats what happened to me. I was sharing the miracle fix that stopped me from cursing farcry 3 and never playing it. Sorry for trying to be helpful. And who blew steam up your butt (hahaha get it? Steam). U obviously work for ubisoft or something or are a fanboy for real cursing stream on every post. Its just a store. I go with whoever has the best deal on the game i want and so does almost everyone else. I thought toms forums was drama free. Evidently they forgot the spam blocker today....
iplikator3333 and ltbenjamin, you two better stop the drama and get back to helping the OP and what seems like others with the same issue. Any more of this and there will be action taken to restore order.
Well i did try and help. The exact same thing, exact, happened to me and it stunk not being able to play farcry3 on uplay through steam. I uninstalled farcry and i reinstalled it to my other hardrive where steam and uplay are installed and it fixed it 100%. Try this Endcomplete. The only reason i posted on this thread was to help from what i learned. Steam and ubisoft support do not help very much, they tell u to close running apps and send u a list of things to try that dont work.
