Just Cause 3 has just launched and not all PC gamers are having a fun time with the game.
The most common problem that’s been reported has to do with AMD drivers and the dev team suggest the following fix.
There are some known issues that occur with the most recent official release AMD/ATi graphics card drivers. We’re working with AMD to fix the issue via an upcoming driver update – to ensure you don’t experience these issues yourself please make sure you are using the latest beta driver available here (64bit – http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/desktop?os=Windows+10+-+64).
In the AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 15.11.1 Update hotfix for 30 November there are notes regarding Just Cause 3 which highlight known issues that will need to be resolved.
-  Just Cause 3 – Texture corruption may be experienced during gameplay
-  Just Cause 3 – The system may hang when task switching on systems with AMD CPUs and GPUs
-  Just Cause 3 – Flickering may be experienced during gameplay and on menu screens
AMD users have resolved some of the problems by competently uninstalling all reference to any AMD drivers on their system and reinstalling the new beta drivers mentioned above. It’s worth a shot if you’re still having problems and you can use something like a Driver Display Uninstaller to make sure all drivers are nuked before reinstalling.
Failing all of the above, hang on until the “upcoming driver update” mentioned in the post from Square.
Moving on to Nvdia. They have posted a Just Cause 3 Graphics & Performance Guide which may help although Nvidia users don’t appear to be having such serious issues.
It became apparent early on that the game does not support multi-GPUs which was confirmed by Nvidia’s Andrew Burnes. He stated that the game engine is “incompatible with all multi-GPU solutions, so no SLI support at this time.” This means Avalanche will have to update the game to make add the support.
As soon as we hear any more on the AMD issues or find any other workarounds we’ll let you know. If you have found any other fixes or workarounds then feel free to share them in the comments.
