Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (PC) Crashes, Errors, Graphics, FPS, Multiplayer Fixes

By   /   4 years ago

Ubisoft has a history of releasing poor PC ports and sadly; this doesn’t change with Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. There are currently too many bugs and issues that haven’t been fixed, even with the day one patch applied. Anyway, we will try our best to list down as many bugs and workarounds as possible to help you in your quest to play this game without getting annoyed.

Do note that if you aren’t satisfied with the default video settings and feel limited by the in-game options, you can tweak the game by editing the config file that can be found here:

1# How To Increase Nvidia SLI Performance
Somehow if you run the game on SLI, only 1% of your second video card is utilized. To fix this issue, open Nvidia Control Panel > Choose future soldier.exe and launcher.exe > Apply ‘Force alternate frame rendering 2’ setting manually.

2# Where To Find Saved Games Files

3# Mouse/Keyboard Won’t Work
If your keyboard or mouse doesn’t work, uninstall the drivers of any game pad that you might have installed on your computer and try again.

4# Black Bars Fix
Change the resolution of the game to fix this issue. Right now, playing the game at higher resolutions and higher aspect ration gives you black bars.

5# Steam Multiplayer | Can’t Connect To Host
Steam version of the game is different from the official current version of the game. Somehow Ubisoft has kept steam version of the game on old patch while has pushed the latest patch to the retail version of the game. This is why you get booted out when you try to connect from retail game to a steam version game.

6# How To Fix Y-Invert 360 Pad
Download this program and read the ‘Readme’ file.

7# No Audio, Can’t Hear Anything
There are few things you can do in this situation. First, make sure your drivers aren’t outdated. If so, update to the latest version of your drivers. If you are getting crappy voice chat quality, update the game to the latest patch.

8# Missing Menus
Re-installing the game will fix the issue. If you are on Steam, check the integrity of the file cache.

9# Easy Way To Fix MP Disconnects and Server Kicks
Uninstall the game, re-install and update it with THIS PATCH.

10# Low Frame Rates Performance Fix
Disable DirectX 11, Vsync in-game and in graphics card settings.

11# Mouse Controls Not Working
Disable Mouse Software and try again!

  • Andrew Warwick

    OK to all you guys with constant crashing issues heres what fixed mine. Ghost Recon FS runs on frostbites engine. There has and continues to be a major problem with frosbite and certain NVIDIA cards. You need to install Ntune from here this is NVIDIA’s overclocking tool for graphic cards. once installed start your NVIDIA CONTROL PANEL. under the performance tab select adjust GPU SETTINGS. click custom clock frequencies and turn your clock speed down by just over 100. My standard clock is 900 on a gtx 560ti I run all frostbite games at 798. That will fix all issues with all frostbite games. Enjoy!!! -Andy Warwick

    • Andries J Els

  • Rashid

    I hate Ubisoft. they do not have sense. whenever I purchased Ubisoft game I lose my money. because errors errors in starting in steam in internet connect. bla bla bla

  • Ed

    @ Pain – The slow FPS problem was solved by running the Beta drivers just released.

    This game is horrible…it crashes constantly. I am as hardcore a gamers as possible and I play many FPS games like BF3 and MW3…this game is the only one that crashes my PC and the further I get into it the more it crashes. I can shut this game down and go play BF3 for hours without any issues…I can go 5 minutes in this one without a hard crash to the desktop. Im running a top line Intel machine with 16gigs of ram and a nVidia GTX 580…this game should run like butter…instead it doesn’t run at all.

  • Pain

    I am getting very low fps in campaign but not in guerilla mode, i tried turning down graphics but not fixed campaign fps, i have nvidia gtx 560 ti

  • miguelmotta

    My pc crashes when I play the second mission (Launcher problem)and I am obliged to shut down the game. I don’t know what to do… Help me people please!!!

  • Robin

    i keep getting error code 1?

  • Emil

    Me and my friend can’t connect to eachother and we tried to open ports, turn of the firewalls…why can’t we connect to eachother?!

    • Zawad Iftikhar

      Try switching the hosts… There was a bug in the game as well when it launched, so I will recommended updating the game.

  • Jonathan

    Just after i finished the Valiant Hammer mission , just before the cutscene my screen went dark (not like wehn it is disabled but like the game was loading something) and nothing hapened for over 5 minutes so i restarted my PC. After I got into the main menu of the game and checked my missions i noticed that i had only completed the 1st and 9th mission. I had already completed and unlocked every weapon in every previous mission. Its like i had never done those missions , all my weapons are locked again. Any help? Or perhaps any savegame?

    • Zawad Iftikhar

      Perhaps you are playing with the corrupted installation. Back up your save files and re-install. See if that helps. Don’t forget to back up your save files just in case.

      The worst case can be that you save files are corrupted. In that case, you are out of luck!
