Moved UNSOLVED Far Cry 3 Crashing on Launch FIX0 Likes/4 Replies/86 ViewsOriginal poster dava4444 20 posts
While trying to solve a problem with AC Syndicate I came across a fix by @Michichael he suggested turning off cores to under 20 in MSConfig.. which I tried, rebooted, and it worked!..I also tried FC3 which I have what feels like endless hours of troubleshooting in. It worked! I was operating on 12 cores. (I have dual Xeon E5-2660v3s, 20 core/40 threads)
I went back into MSConfig turned all the cores on and rebooted again. Then I started looking for an affinity program.. I bought 'dAffinity' which was a total waste of money!..but I found a prog called 'Process Lasso' (great program! easy to use).. and after much trial and error, I got FC3 working with 0-3 (4 cores, 0123).
I don't know if this (see below) was something to do with the original problem or if this was something to do with Process Lasso, but I discovered if I just kept hitting ignore FC3 would start and run normally.
As for SC Syndicate.. no joy yet without using MSConfig.. these two games need some serious patching from the Dev team/Bug team!
Thanks for reading and I hope this helps
If some nice Ubi staff/admin would PLEASE pass this info to the Bug Team.. I did NOT ENJOY my 20+ hours troubleshooting these two games.. and would prefer to have them just work. thanks.

@dava4444 Hey Dava, I very much appreciate you bringing forward your frustrations and findings regarding your inability to launch both of those games. This is certainly very helpful. I will share it with the dev teams. Would you be able to do me an extra favour and create a case on the Support Portal, upload your MSInfo and DxDiag and then share with me the case #? You can add in the case description that UbiKoreanBBQ was asking for system files via the forum.

@ubikoreanbbq Thanks for the reply
I tried doing this before coming to the forum but it says due to covid limitations it won't let me open a support ticket (I assume because these are legacy games) and that I should come to the forum.
I have the files if you want to give me an email I can send them to.. wait.. I just realized I tried this ^ for AC Syndicate but not FC3.. aaand done!
my case number is: 15356236.
