Day One Edition DLC Code Not Working

If you’re having problem activating your Day One Edition code on Playstation, you should probably just wait for a bit. The game is releasing at different times in different areas, so it’s probably just not live on PSN yet. You could try activating it using the PSN website instead of the console application.

Low Framerate on PS4 and Xbox One

Many people are having problems with the framerate on consoles. The developers are aware of the problem and are working on a solution as we speak.

Bad Performance on PC

If you’re experiencing poor performance with the PC version of the game, you should disable Vsync before doing anything else. Once the game is running, open the Task Manager and set its priority to High.

If you’re using an Nvidia graphics card, take a look at this guide for a clue about which settings you can tweak for better results.

If you’re using AMD, you can try rolling back your drivers, or installing the Crimson beta version.

Game stuttering on PC

Some AMD users are reporting issues with stuttering. There’s a simple workaround to help with this problem:
  • Go to Control Panel.
  • Open Sound settings.
  • Choose your playback device and click Properties.
  • Go to the Advanced tab.
  • Change Default Format to 16 bit, 96000 Hz.
Stuttering can sometimes also be caused by the game trying to connect to the servers all the time – start Steam in offline mode to avoid this.

Just Cause 3 Crashes on PC

If you’re experiencing crashes with the PC version of the game, there’s several things you could try:
  • Increase your vitual memory in Windows (here’s how).
  • If you’re using multiple monitors, disable all but the primary.
We’re going to update this guide with new problems and solutions as time goes by.

      unfortunately i have found no way of fixing this, but if there is an event or mission that you would like to do, hover over it in a small helicopter and if you are in the right position it will give you the ability to play it
