Hello, I am a Great-Grandmother, had Horse Stables, had a Dog Kennel and Bred Collies, and am now a Breeder of Bichon Dogs in particular the Frise and Coton de Tulear Bichons but not as yet the Maltese or Havanese Bichons. I am also an Artist and have written, illustrated and published some Children's Books. I love to read, and play computer games. That's why I'm here!

I don't/haven't had or used a Play Station or XBox. I do own a Nintendo Wii (First Generation) and up until about 5 years ago I still played Atari and Intellivision Games.

I have been downloading like a fiend. I must say thank-you to those Users who have uploaded Older, Hard-to-Find, Game Titles. Some I've never heard of and some I played for years until the technology went beyond the capabilities of the older games. I'm hoping I can get them to work on my current machine.

Also some of the newer games have requirements I'm not sure my machine has the equivalents of. The one game I'm hungering for at the moment is "Far Cry Tribal" but I'm not positive that my machine has the "guts" to actually load and play the game.

According to my System Files I have Windows 8

Processor: Intel Core i5-4460 CPU @ 3.20GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 12.0GB (11.8 GB usable)
System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor

And according to my Device Manager . . .
I connect to the internet via Bluetooth, I have a 2TB drive (1.33 free)
Intel HD Graphics 4600, a Logitech wireless Keyboard and Mouse

What do I need to add or tweak so that I can actually play "Far Cry Tribal"?

Any and all responses, advice and or criticism is gratefully appreciated.

Sadly, no you computer isn't up to par. If it's a desktop you have, (Though I'm guessing it's a laptop), you'll need a better graphics card installed. Laptops can't really be upgraded with graphics well enough, unless it's a special laptop, which I'm guessing it isn't.

Are you connecting to the internet, through your phone or something? Seems a little strange to be using Bluetooth to get on to the internet these days.

Hello, Kate. Welcome!
If you're still in doubt if you can run a certain game, you can search on youtube too, there are tons of hardware tests with a variety of games to see how it goes. You wrote "Far Cry Tribal", but I've never heard of this game. Is it "Far Cry Primal"?
I found this one:

Welcome to TIZ!!

Sounds like your going to need a decent graphics card to run Farcry Primal (I'm guessing that's what you meant to say)
The minimum graphics requirement is: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 (1GB VRAM) | AMD Radeon HD 5770 (1GB VRAM) or equivalent
Also 4GB of ram is minimum.

I've been running a lot of newer games on an old Geforce GTS 450 and they run OK. Have to adjust the graphic settings sometimes but the games are still playable.
Even have been running Just Cause 3 on it with dropped graphic settings.
