Key points

Disadvantage Poor port with many bugs and issues that have not been fixed.[1] For example, if one wants to access the settings whilst in-game, one must quit to the main menu.[2] Furthermore, there are many problems with the game remembering remapped keys.[3]

Widescreen resolution[edit]

Title Update 1.2 will lock the resolution to 720p.[8] Patching to Title Update 1.4 resolves a lot of video resolution problems, and enables the game to be played in most resolutions and in Eyefinity set ups.

Nvidia SLI Performance Increase[edit]

User r3mx_D has devised a performance increase setting for those using Nvidia cards in SLI mode to make full use of the second card in SLI. Without this setting, the second card is only utilised 0-1%.[9]

Using Nvidia Control Panel, one needs to apply settings to these exe files:

future soldier.exe and launcher.exe

And apply the setting:

Force alternate frame rendering 2

Issues unresolved[edit]

Steam Multiplayer[edit]

Any time you connect to a host with a different patch, you will be booted within 10–15 seconds of connecting. This is because the Steam version of the game is different to other multiplayer hosts or clients.[11]

Issues fixed[edit]

Can't connect to Co-op games[edit]

Check that no other network adapters are enabled. Adapters such as VPN, Virtual Box, and others may cause conflict. In the event that multiple are present, disable all but the one your intend to use and the issue should be resolved. Alternatively, you can attempt to change the priority for the network adapter.[12]

Mouse Won't Work[edit]

Whilst the keyboard and mouse may be selectable within the game menu, but does not work in the game. Uninstalling the drivers for any installed gamepads fixes for some people.[13]

Game does not go fullscreen correctly[edit]

Go to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Ubisoft\Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier and edit default.cfg, change the resolution, save, then set the file to read only.

Mouse not clipping to the game window[edit]

Go to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Ubisoft\Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Future Soldier and edit default.cfg; change fullscreen from True to False, save, then set the file to read only.
