Hey all,I recently re-installed my OS to Windows 8 x64 and thus far am enjoying it.I was able to get all my STEAM games going without a hitch, but since I purchased Far Cry 3 retail copy, I was hoping to have the ubisoft launcher just detect that FarCry 3 and its 9-10gb folder is already installed, rather than have to download the game again, or install from disc, if I can avoid it.Has anyone in the community, or even ubisoft themselves, found a solution for this? As it stands, my game is located under f:\games\FarCry3 and when i double click the .EXE it auto opens ubisoft launcher, and then says
but when it goes to play, it starts the download process which is unnecessary.Does anyone know of a way?Thanks!
Well, I hope someone will come along sooner than later and help someone else figure it out...or maybe someone from ubisoft will realize the potential for making some bandwidth-centered individuals happier with their purchase and then backup.
So for anyone falling on this thread: I don't think it's possible when purchasing a ubisoft game that you will be able to recover from a backed up folder. Your only bet is to re-install from disc, or download anew.
