Far Cry 3 crashes on start up.
Whenever I start Far Cry 3, it will show me the "This game will save when this icon shows, do not turn off the power"
And then after that it crashes.. "Far Cry 3 has stopped working." Any thoughts?? It does it every time..
EDIT: Hmmm, disabling the Uplay In-Game Overlay seemed to fix it. But I'd rather have it enabled.. Anyone know how to get it running with the overlay enabled?

Is your uPlay upto date?
The latest is 2.1.2 - please try exiting uplay and restarting it which should prompt the update if needed.
if you are still having issues, please contact support.
Yes it is.. The in-game overlay makes it crash for some reason, which is a shame.

It seems to be fixed but I had to disable DX11, now I don't have the problems, but I want DX11... I have a 580 So it should handle it no worries.
I think I actually found out why it crashes.
1. Go into your NVidia Control Panel
2. Click on the "Manage 3D Settings" Tab.
3. MAKE SURE Anti-aliasing-FXAA is set to OFF!!!
This is important as Far Cry 3 does NOT support FXAA.
I was having crashes and getting nowhere with tech support. I finally found out that the cause of the problem is having FXAA set to "ON" because Far Cry 3 DOES NOT SUPPORT FXAA.
Let me know if this works for your too.
