How To Fix Far Cry 3 - Save Game

For anyone who had trouble with the save issue on Far Cry 3
Here is the Solution How to Fix This 
First of All you should have Far Cry 3 and Uplay installed
if you have (  no matter what version of Uplay or Far Cry )  that installed we can start
Step 1.
Open your Far Cry 3 Folder then enter "bin" and you should have a file called "orbit_api" , opet it with notepad and change the game id to 48
Step 2.
Open your Uplay Folder , for example mine is C:Program Files ( x86 )  / Ubisoft/ UbisoftGameLauncher , after you enter that folder you will see another folder called "data" Open it
Step 3.
Search for a Folder that has the number 46 and rename it to 48 , like your game id ,
Step 4.
Enter the  game and save as well autosave should work , you will not be able to unlock achievements because you took the game id form an other game but your save will work perfectly

    1. I changed the game id to 48 in the orbit_api.ini file, and renamed C:\ProgramData\Orbit\46 to "48", and it worked! I also uninstalled UPlay and run it with the -offline parameter to be safe though. This has been the solution to many hours of frustration, thanks so much!

  4. This worked for me once, and then it stopped working when I tried to load up Far Cry the next time. It seems to have only worked once.

    I've tried changing the 48 to a different number too, and nothing works.

    Its so frustrating to have gotten it working once only for it to crap out again....

  7. A couple of us at work have had exactly the same problem with save not showing up but this was random for us and sometimes a restart fixed the issue. Now I have been able to fix and replicate the fault 100% of the time and the issue was I had Outlook 2010 open, when open the save game wouldn't be there. Quit, then close it and it would come back. Quit again and open outlook, no save again.

    Other people who don't have outlook running but the same fault may have other software running in the background causing the fault.

  27. Hi,
    I recently killed Vaas and return to cave where friends are hiding. my bad luck i saw a glowing bowl and took the red pill, now my game is saved there, each time i reload it start from there and worst thing is my screen gets white and then happen nothing even i waited so long. after that i have downloaded a save file and game working fine, i load my game to lowest resolution and took the pill again and this time it shows a cut scene and some strip club and then jason wakesup again. but this game have no game progress means no relics no skill points, is there any way to revert my save game to last check point where i haven't taken the red pill so i can continue further progress without taking pill shit. i already have unlocked almost all skills and retrieved 56 relics with bunch of mission and out posts. Any suggestion and help please?

    ReplyDelete
  28. In continuation, if i load my game with lowest resolution it wont go further and still keep showing me whit screen, but due to my game progress i want to load it from a previous point so i should not take the red pill again.
