'Far Cry 5 requires special file patching to use cheats, but we were unable to patch your game'

Hi All

I know this issue has been touched on in other threads, but I can’t seem to find a solution.

Infinity’s Far Cry 5 was working Perfectly for me until a couple days ago, when all of a sudden I started getting this error

I hadn’t made any changes, updates or anything to the game, to Infinity or to Windows 10.

It’s really frustrating as I’d been finding Infinity SO useful, plus I was at a point in the game where without the occasional use of some of the cheats, I can’t progress any further.

I’ve tried everything, numerous reinstalls, and nothing works.

If anyone has any solution I’d be really grateful.

Thanks so much


Lets start out with this question. Did you buy the game?

Yep but same problem

Same problem here

Edit: Is this problem only presenting itself with the Uplay version??

Got the same here
