For some reason, Far Cry crashes at random times, usually when i try to load a game. It simply crashes to the desktop, no error message, nothing. Any Help is appreciated.

Check you have all the latest windows updates,graphics drivers and sound drivers etc,etc. try and start the game on the lowest settings you can and work your way up. If the game wont start then uninstall, delete the ubisoft folder then reinstall and try again.

If that doesnt work take a look here... http://www.ubireg.com/uk/

i have the exact same problem and am desperatly seeking help. FarCry just disappears off of the screen with no error messages at random times but mostly at loading points. System -Athlon XP 1800+ -1G PC2700 RAM (2x512) -Sapphire Radeon 9600 Atlantis 256MB -Windows XP Pro I just freshly installed windows, norton, and farcry in hopes of getting it to work and had no luck. I have tried the drivers it came with, Cat 4.5, and Cat 4.6. Some seem to work a little better than others at certain things but ALL of them crash at some point. Sometimes its when nothings really happening and sometimes it happens during a gunfight so i dont think its related to that. If you have any insight on how to fix it please let me know, i would greatly appreciate it.

That is strange and i have worse specs then both of you and farcry runs fine of medium everything except the water is on high. That is wierd and maybe just maybe you should try running it in compatiblity with windows 98 or something. Beats me.:confused:

That's wierd. Me, like "shoot me im dumb" have a medium rig and my game runs just fine. I have everything on medium except Shadows, wich are low, and Water and Environment, wich are high. The water looks SOOOOO great that I want to take a bath everytime I play the game!!! Have you tried the 1.1 patch? If I were you I'd uninstall, defrag the drive, run a spyware program like the Ad-Aware (sometimes spyware is on your computer and it slows down the rig!! BELIVE ME!!), reinstall the game AND put the patch before running the game for the first time. Also remember to download the latest drivers for your cards. That's all the help I can give.:)
