Nevertheless, it is not enough what release of modern game is absolutely smooth. Unfortunately, some players claim that they faced a number of problems when launching Far Cry 5 or directly during the game process.

As you can see, the game does not require you to have some unimaginably powerful iron. Plus, as we said, Far Cry 5 is very well optimized, so you have all the chances to play it and on a weaker hardware, although it’s not recommended.

Anyway, after making sure that you do not have problems with your requirements, let’s now consider solutions for such problems as black screen, hangs, crashes, bug 000001 and stuff in Far Cry 5.

Far Cry 5 – black screen

Some of the players reported that when they launched their copy of Far Cry 5, they collided with a black screen. Such a problem is far from new for PC players – usually it is solved by installing new versions of the necessary libraries, going to the bundle with the game, updating the driver for the graphics accelerator and the like.

However, as it became clear, the problem in the form of a black screen in Far Cry 5 is due to the fault of such a program as MSI Afterburner. If you use this software to monitor your performance or, for example, to overclock your video card, we recommend that you try to close MSI Afterburner and see if Far Cry 5 starts up normally or not.

Far Cry 5 – error 000001

Another fairly common problem that many users encounter is bug 000001. In addition to the error itself, it is also accompanied with a message stating that your computer does not fit the minimum system requirements. Especially often the owners of AMD Phenom II processors complain about this problem.

Unfortunately, the developers used in the game some kind of restriction or verification at the hardware level. Proceeding from this, it is possible to assert the following: owners of processors AMD Phenom II and others with a similar set of instructions can not launch Far Cry 5 on their computers.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time that the absence of any instruction for the processor has blocked the way for gamers to get the game experience they need. However, over time, developers of such games released patches, so as not to leave consumers behind their products. Perhaps Ubisoft will also release a similar patch. Nevertheless, at the moment you can either leave the game for later, or request a refund if possible.
