Running FarCry 4 on a dual core CPU guide + my FPS numbers.

Everyone knows that the intense, advanced modern games of today require huge amounts of processing power in order to offer the incredible, immersive and cinematic gameplay experiences that they offer.

 

If you didn't realise when I said 'cinematic', that was satire. This is a guide I'm making to show that FarCry 4 can be run on a dual core system with more than sufficient performance that offers a good gameplay experience.

 

The first step in this process is to get the game working. In order to do this you'll need to inject a .dll into the FC4 executable when it starts. I'll link all files at the bottom of this post.

 

Now, with the files you have downloaded and unzipped,you should see this:

Run the 'Extreme Injector V3' executable. If it isn't already, you'll need to organise the .dll files in this order specifically, which you can do by adding and removing them:

Then, just run FarCry 4 and hit 'Inject' the moment you start it. You need to do it while the splash screen is still up, otherwise it might not work.

Once it works, the game should be running! Woo!

Now, for the performance numbers I get on my PC, which I would consider a mid-to-low spec system.

As a forenote, I did consider using Fraps, but decided against it and just kept an eye on my numbers as I played as to give general, but more realistic numbers.

 

My specs:
CPU: Penitum G3258 @ 4.4ghz
GPU: Asus GTX 760 DCUII OC @ Stock (Not a good OC'er)
I'm also using a 1080p monitor (Asus VE248H)

 

For the different scenarios, I just looked at a wall for 'looking at a wall', then I ran in circles and jumped around a small outpost for 'Running around', and for 'In a firefight' I ran into an enemy outpost and went full retard with an assault rifle. I also didn't test the high and very-high settings as I didn't think it was really worth it. I don't think there's enough of a difference between med, high and very-high to worry about it.

 

Low: (Game looks like absolute ass, no AA, near no shadows.)
-Looking at a wall: About 61-62
-Running around: Mostly high 40's (Pretty much the same as med settings.)
-In a firefight: Mid 40's.

 

Med: (looks alright now, still no AA)
-Looking at a wall: High 50's
-Running around: Around 50, down to mid 40's.
-In a firefight: High 30's to low 40's.

 

Ultra: (Looks darker and more bland, plus the HBAO+ contrast is too damn high.)
-Looking at a wall: Low to mid 50's
-Running around: Average around the 40's, dips down to mid 30's.
-In a firefight: 30's with the occasional dip into 20's.

 

So, it seems that as you increase in quality, the max fps lowers by a few fps, but the amount that the fps dips during more intense scenes increases substantially.

Turns out that Skidrow actually made this crack, so kudos to him for that. More of his cracks and other such things over at his site, which is about his (Skidrows) game cracks, which you might even call SkidrowGames. Which could be a network (.net) site. #TechnicallynotbreakingtheCOC

It pisses me off that this guide even has to exist in the first place. Why did they make it NOT run on dual core CPUs in the first place?

What will my 970 be like with it?

PERFECT (Minus the stutter we all get)

I'm sitting pretty with near 60fps average and it rises and falls around that... say 50-75fps depending what I'm doing/going/looking at.

1080p Ultra Max everything with SMAA

You'd be a bit better than that.

same reason cod ghosts was forcing a 6gb ram requirement when it only used 2 I guess lol

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Interestingly enough, I don't find that I get any stutter. I've checked for it, but it's either so short that I can't notice it, or it's just not there.

The above fix is by SKIDROW, would help to leave him some credits. Tho personally I haven't a clue as to why he made the fix in C#...

Isn't skidrow that pirate uploader game cracker?

Yes he is.

 

Updated it, thanks for that.

I wouldn't link to his site as he does provide game rips on it (which is piracy that violates CoC). Tho mentioning him for the fix is fine.

I would try this on my G3258 if I still had it.....maybe I should grab another and pop it in my Z97M OC Formula and crank up the volts?

I am addicted to building gaming PCs but I don't have a great reason to stop...yet...

If you've got the cash, why the hell not. Nothing like a bit of OC'ing as a good timesink.

Hey guys I am currently running G3258 and this does not work, does it only work with cracked copies of Far Cry 4? Because I downloaded it straight from steam and this does not work.
