What works

The installation was flawless

What does not

Everything else.


What was not tested

I tried UPlay first and had intermitant success logging in. In general, just get a no-uplay hack. They are hard to find but worth the trouble.

Additional Comments

It was a constant battle with Far Cry 3 that lead me to ultimately throw in the towel. Getting all of the overrides figured out was time consuming, trying to figure out which DirectX_9 override to use was headache inducing, and then sifting through the error messages got me to give up. The final error message I received was "err:d3d:resource_init Out of adapter memory" which suggests there was something wrong with my Wine configuration. I manually adjusted the memory allocation but to no avail. I'm sure with enough time and tinkering you could get Far Cry 3 to work but, I'm not sure it's worth it.

HowTo / Notes

Works best with Gallium Nine

The framerate, and number of graphical glitches, are greatly improved (e.g. the sniper rifle's crosshairs are visible) by using the combination of Nouveau and Gallium Nine, rather than Nvidia's proprietary driver.
