Far Cry 2 Freezing Bug

To all of you who like me, are putting a great deal of time into Far Cry 2, be warned.

Reports are popping up on the internet that a bug in the Xbox 360 version of Far Cry 2 is causing the game to freeze at around about the 62% mark. It is obvious that a ton of frustration can be caused by this bug, so I suggest that you keep your eyes and ears open for news on a patch.

At the moment, it seems like the best option is to start saving quite often before you hit that mark so that if the freeze happens, you can start from only a short time before and hope that it doesn’t happen again.

We will keep our eye on this one and report any news of any upcoming patches, so stay tuned.

    It can happen before 62% (happened to me) or after, but it only seems to happen in the south, not in the north.

    This is a real disgrace, and a real lack of disregard for its customers demonstrated by ubisoft, and they must not be allowed to get away with it. I parted with my hard earned cash and bought this game only for it to be freezing after 4 per cent completion. I have restarded the game so many times, and get the same problem, and i am now glad to say i simply threw the game in the bin, as to me that is the only suitable place for it. I ask all people here to think of ways to petition ubisoft and let them know what they are doing is daylight robbery.

    yep what a suprise mine frooze at 65% done everything to overcome the freezing – new update/ no update everything and geuss what it still freezes 50 fucking quid i paid for a game that freezez and no proper suppourt for it. ubisoft sort it out – i thought i was alone on this issue-clearly not now really quite annoyed that i spent hours on end playing the story mode only for it to crash at loading after it crashed in game . i hate ubisoft now . test your games fully before realesing a game u say took u 3 years to create cocks. theres no way round it 0 a new patch will probbally not sort it. only advise is to double up game saves on it. or in my case i cant be botherd to go through it all again. cheers ubisoft assholes.

    You guys are lucky!!!
    The bug first appeared around 62% percent.
    I managed to overcome by double saving, until now…
    I’m stuck at 73% percent because currently (according to map) I can ONLY select a main mission with the ufll.
    Thing is that after the guy at the front door strips me off my weapons I get in the building and the fuckin office door won’t fuckin open!!! no matter what I do…
    So go fuck yourselves ubisoft team!!!
    I hope you die of malaria and go to hell damned with programming golf games for cellphones till I manage to get the fuckin door open…

    Mine froze at 5% I’ve tried reinstalling new video drivers, its hopeless. PC gamers are all having the same problem. I have read about this in forum after forum. Ubisoft really stuck it to us this time. They should do a massive recall and refund everyone’s money.

    This is frustrating, I just bought a brand new 360 on sunday with farcry 2 (and other games). I’ve not even managed to properly complete the first mission with the buddy side-mission. It keeps freezing, Ubisoft are ignoring it, ruined a good game for me.

    Mine froze at 69% and i couldnt even load the game. So i decided to start over with a different character and got up to 65%. However this time it loads my save but it freezes after about 5 minutes of playing after you load it EVERY time. Bullshit. You would thing they would have spotted this during the testing/development of the game. I think we should be able to get full refunds if they dont sort this shit out.

    I noticed my game starting to freeze up around 58%. It never froze to the point where I could not reload it, still it happened every 10-15 minutes and was getting annoying. I was afraid it would go entirely, so I created 3 files to backup one game.

    I play on Xbox 360, so I decided to try and download it to the harddrive and play it from there. It seems to have worked as it has not frozen once since I grounded it to the harddrive and I have just beaten the game. Hope I didn’t just jynx myself, but if you play on 360 try downloading it to your harddrive and see if it helps.

    I got Far Cry 2 with my EVGA video card. I’m stuck too where the only mission is with the UFLL but the office door is closed and won’t open. I say we compile a list of ourselves and file a class action lawsuit against them. As main claimant’s maybe we can get a few thousand, everyone else will probably get a coupon and the lawyers a few million :-p

    If you are having problems with doors refusing to open, try reloading a save before you reached that percentage, then get back to where the door got stuck and it should work, if not, try again. It should work eventually. I’ve only come across this problem at 73% and on the PC version but reloading to the point just before completing the mission before (at 69%) solved it, and I can’t see why that wouldn’t work for anything else. I hope you kept regular saves!

    I really love Far Cry 2, but I am disgusted cause I can’t get past 88%, I’m at the part where Reuben wants you to meet him at Mike’s bar at the marina and the door won’t open. I even jumped on top of the bar and peeked inside the window, doesn’t even show any people inside. I even tried re-doing the mission before it but still to no avail. Mine is the xbox 360 version. :ermm:
