Don’t worry.Your solution will be solved easily if you follow the instructions listed below.For most of the prominent errors,we have written a detailed solution with instructions.However,before having a look at the instructions,first of all make sure that your PC meets the system requirements of Far cry 4.If yes,then you can proceed by scrolling down and having a look at the solutions for errors in Far cry 4.If not,the first recommended instruction is upgrading your Computer.Because,Far cry 4 needs a High end Video card and processor to run on your PC.So,if you have a low end Video card or processor,you should face lot of issues like Lag,Stuttering,crashes etc and sometimes you may not be even able to install it.

Low FPS/Lag while playing Far Cry 4:

Low FPS is always an issue for PC gamers.It is because of the PC specifications.If you have a low end PC(that did not meet the requirements of Far cry 4),then either you cannot play the game or will play with severe Lag and Latency.So,the most recommended solution is upgrading your PC.However,there are some alternate solutions to reduce lag.You can follow the instructions to reduce lag.

  • First of all,go to Nvidia control panel.
  • Then,go to manage 3D settings.
  • Then open Far cry 4 exe file in the list of applications.
  • Then,in options drop down menu,select “Prefer maximum Performance” in the Power management mode option.A GIF image is embedded below in which i have shown the instructions clearly.(I have selected Far cry 3.You need to select Far cry 4)

    Completelly useless advice, just click bait…

    The thing is, no game is released without bugs. Even if you havent experienced a bug in a game, others have. People expect games to be bug free, but with all the different Pc setups there are out there, running different vid cards, different drivers, OSs and so many other things, it is completely impossible for ANY dev to get a game bug free. Why do we see more stable releases with consoles? Because for the most part, they are running the same hardware. For example, my Xbox One is near the same as just about everyone elses xbox one, therefor its much easier for the dev to get a game released with far less bugs than pc… Even then you’re always going to have bugs. It pisses me off when people rage about bugs in a pc game.. Use common sense and be patient for a patch.. Or move to consoles since you’re too stupid to be a pc gamer.

    • Cale

      I can’t believe decent people like you still exist. Truth is underrated man. Whining on the other hand is like the catharsis or some other shit, it’s very healthy too complain. We should get use to it. 😀

        Im guessing you’re able to play then? I picked up this and Unity. Unity deleted my save after a few hours and this doesn’t for more than a few minutes without a crash. Bugs i understand, especially with games this big, but come on…..

        • Cale

          No i did not get the chance yet. I try though but it’s too buggy in this early state release. We’ll have to wait for more fixes to come up.

    • Far cry fan found..:P

  • warbutt the butt butt

    I’m Glad Ubi didn’t mess this one up minus having to unplug every controller on my PC so it didn’t have to crash on start up. Or the crashes every hour and a half or so. Other then that it’s great! ^.^

    Plus it looks so purddie in 1440p on Max Settings..

    I can play multiplayer, but it seems that single player does not work, when I try to start a new game it loads to about 25-75%, then I get the far cry 4 has stopped working message, and I don’t wanna redownload a F**king 31 Gig game since my internet sucks. I have already verified my game integrity 4 times.

  • bullshit ubisoft

    pff been checking this program with ida pro, and saw some
    strange things in there, been puzzling for several days by now.

    First of all it is using the old 32 bit Far Cry 2 Dynamic
    Link Library, next to that everything points to the fact that this is actually
    a 32 bit program masked in a 64 bit exe.

    Apart from that they failed to optimize the game by using
    QueryPerformanceCounter and where not able to optimize it for multi core cpu’s
    and forced it to use the old single core RDTSC single core operation.

    There for far cry 4 is using only core 3, to mask this scam
    and the ability to use a better timing settings and to be able to use multiple

    They used Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit to
    force the game to use that core number 3, no matter what, so no multi core
    gaming, and forced a 32 bit exe program code to a 64 bit exe with this tool.

    Because they wanted to hide their mistakes and ability to run
    it actually on a 64 bit system with actual 64 bit optimized code, and their
    failure to optimize it for multiple cores.

    They have hidden it in the header file, there is a second header
    mask in there, and judging from that it is a 32 bit header file(the original 32 bit exe), hidden in their
    64 bit exe.

    If they wouldn’t have done that they would have slow motions
    and huge glitches in the game, and there for they forced to use a single core,
    only core 3, and masked their bad timing settings and bad optimization with
    these ridicules minimum specifications to avoid being the laughing stock in
    gaming world and not beeing able to do this correctly anno 2014/2015.

  • Anon

    I like how you assume only Nvidia card owners have fps issues. Oh and a “stuck loading” fix is nowhere to be found in here.

  • Troll

    Any one have the same problem where this game just hammers your hard drive? I’m having problems where this game reads from the hard drive constantly and it some times maxes how fast my HDD can read D:
