Thank you, Sir. The trainer now opens as it should (though I still had to do the offline authentication); however, it doesn't seem to activate in the game. While at the main screen, pressing "F1" does nothing and pressing the associated keys during game play does nothing. Interestingly, when I quit the game and press "F1", I DO get the message that the "trainer can't find a game" or whatever it says.

Thoughts?

Hmm, well, have you tried the other common 'fixes' like unzipping the trainer into the Steam/Far Cry3 folder, running Steam, the trainer and the game as Administrator? I just tried mine again and it's still working fine.

If those don't do it, I really suggest going thru the TroubleShooting guide in detail. It's very detailed and complete, and located here:

www.cheathappens.com/trainer_troubleshooting.asp


Coupla other games you might like: Tomb Raider and Dishonored.
Hope ya get it sorted out.

right click run as admin on trainer and game. run trainer, run game, alt-tab to trainer, press F1 to activate, alt-tab back to game and use options.

Thanks for the suggestions, but still no dice.

I tried unzipping the trainer to several different locations; running it and FC3 as admin and in compatibility modes; starting the game from Steam client rather than the FC3 executable (which takes me to UPlay); combinations of the admin/compatibility modes; ALT-Tab from the game; "F1" before, during and after the main screen; and I've gone through the troubleshooting link as recommended. I tried downloading another copy of the trainer (still makes me use the offline authentication) to no avail.

I'm stumped.

Three things I notice; first is what I mentioned in my earlier post - if I run the trainer, start the game, exit the game (not Alt-tab, but actually quit the game) then hit "f1" on the trainer, I receive the "trainer cannot find game" audio message. Likewise, I receive the text variant of that message at the bottom of the trainer whenever I hit F1 (whether or not the game is running). Finally, on the other trainers I've used recently, there is an image on the bottom right hand corner; on this one, it looks like it tries to form an image/picture when I first start up the trainer, but then it just hangs with a mostly white background and no real image to speak of.

As for the recommended games... I finished Dishonored a couple months ago, very good. Haven't tried Tomb Raider, but I might give that a go after FC3...and Rage...and Crysis 2...and Skyrim. I'm a little behind as you can tell.

This sounds like your AV, firewall or other security software is blocking the trainer. It doesn't matter if other trainers work or not as they all use different security templates and signatures. I would completely uninstall all AV, firewall and other security software and do a windows clean boot until you determine what is blocking it.

If you quit the game then hit F1, it WILL tell you it can't find the game - the game isn't running.

But aren't you going thru UPlay? I haven't found a way to play withoujt going thru UPlay. I'm using the DX-11 executable to start the game (Farcry3_D3D11.exe). If you're not DX11 then use the other game exe file.

Start the trainer using Admin. Then Admin-start the game exe and it will open UPlay which I have an acct and have set for auto login. That brings up Farcry3 IN UPlay. Click Farcry3 there and you'll see a little box from Steam that you click to Play. Click that, and Farcry3 should load for you.

Pain in the arse, oh yeah, but I haven't found a way around UPlay. Even after I'm running, if I shut down UPlay, FC3 will soon crash. If you find a way around UPlay, please do let me know, but the forums are filled with peeps bytching about it.

@ PWzard - the AV/firewall was completely nuked; same result.

@ element5 - I didn't list it in the steps I tried above, but I did try the DX11 executable file as admin as well as the other "regular" executable. Neither worked. One thing I notice based on your description of events leading up to the game is that I do NOT get the little steam window you describe. If I click on the FC3 executable (either one), Uplay immediately comes up and logs me in. Steam starts up in the background, but I never have to click on anything within Steam to start the game. I also tried starting the game from Steam rather than the Steamapps directory.

The only thing I haven't tried (that I can think of) is doing a complete reinstall which doesn't sound fun and I'm guessing it won't work.

Bummer man. I think I've spent a solid 3 hours trying different things.

Thanks to you both for helping... I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

You might be close. After clicking Farcry3 in UPlay, that Steam box is a popup and you might find it minimized on your taskbar at the bottom. Check and see if it's there. Click Play inside it if it is there. I think that's all you're missing. Let us know...
