    Apparently it's an issue with Mouse Acceleration? The option in the menu doesn't turn it off apparently and you need to edit the xml file.

    Runs okay on my rig, 4970K @ 4.7GHz with cfx R290's but only one card is working with current catalyst drivers, frame rate is only 30 - 40 fps but constant and gameplay is pretty smooth, AMD know about cfx problems and are apparently working with Goobie (Ubi) to fix it.....probably more likely NVidia payed Goobie to jinx the game for AMD users because it would have probably run better on AMD hardware than NVidia's anyway :lol:

    It's nothing new that AMD are slow to provide drivers tailored for latest games.

    Drivers and general quality are one of the main reasons I haven't bought Ati/AMD in a while. Brother currently selling his 290x and looking to move back to nvidia pretty much purely for far cry, because it seems to run like crap on the 290x...

    Wow, same here. 10GB patch and another mini patch, new drivers, removed all USB devices as one thread suggested...still fucked. :thumbdn:

    FIXED IT!!!

    I've got a HID in Computer Manager called VJOY virtual joystick which I disabled.

    Ubisoft have responded as well:

    Will have to just wait and see I guess

    new catalyst 11.14 beta 2 drivers that AMD delivered with 24 hours of Far Cry 4 release improved performance by 50% on single AMD cards! Once the get cross fire working (Ubi problem :rolleyes:) performance will again improve.

    It took NVidia longer to get working drivers for this game out the door than it did AMD! and this game is coded for NVidia; remember Assassin Creed first game where it ran better on AMD than NVidia and it was a "the way it's meant to be played game" so NVidia payed the devs to code into a patch performance crippling stuff for AMD gpu's....way to go NVidia and way to fuck everyone over fucking unscrupulous company of dogs......wouldn't surprise me if they have done this again to break crossfire performance in this game.

    I get the common stuttering issue, tried everything, doesn't matter how low the graphic settings are the game still stutters.

    It''s annoying, but at least its still playable unlike the guys who can't even get it started.

    Pro tip: Dont verify your files again if you value your data allowance.

    Are you running on version 1.3.0 ? I just dont know what the hell is going on with uPlay and how it patches

    Always thankful of all you people that buy the game on day 1 and pay the maximum price to get the worst version so that people like me can pay 1/4 of the price later and get a decent version of the game :thumbup::p

    thissssssssssssssssssssss

    Hell I just finished Mass Effect 3 today. Enjoyed the hell out of it, got all that extra (free) DLC, extended endings and patch fixes and I payed $12 for it. I know I am late to the game on that one but even 4-6 months after any release and you have a far superior product at a cheaper price.

    Learn some patience!

    Hey, I envy you guys that can do this...but not all of us want to wait 2 years after a game comes out to play it.

    Guilty as charged as joining the hype train when games are announced....I often count down the days before a game is released, so someone like me cannot wait 2 more years :lol:
