Waiting for Other Players when attempting to load a checkpoint
Whenever I fail a mission and attempt to load the checkpoint, it begins to load then says 'Waiting for Other Players' instead of allowing me to press Start to continue, only I'm not online or in a Co-op game. This is pretty annoying, particularly on the later levels as it means I have to complete the mission in one attempt.

I have tried verifying my files and have also tried running in compatability mode but no luck. I'm am using saves from Windows 7 (now on Windows 8), and I'm not prepared to start again since I am most of the way through the story.

Does anyone have a solution for this or know of a decent workaround? I'm also experiencing frequent crashes, usually when finishing a mission and attempting to proceed to the next one, however this isn't a big issue since it manages to save my progress beforehand.

Same exact issue. Windows 8.1 x64 (with Radeon HD 6900M) Drives me crazy. Tried all manner of compatibility mode options, drivers, settings, etc. Driving me crazy.

I gave up trying to solve it in the end and managed to press on and complete the remaining levels in one attempt.

I have your exact problems.

Check the 'Always On Top' option in Window's Task Manager to bring it up during a crash to terminate the game (should show 'not responding'). Otherwise, it may keep the screen frozen and force you a PC restart.

This game is very buggy but you know Ubisoft would not care. They do not care about Far Cry 3's corrupt public co-op, let alone this old game.

Same problem, Windows 8.1 here too. I can't help you solve it, but I can verify that running it in compatibility for Windows 7 and Vista don't do anything. Nor does running it in administrator mode.

Also, posting just to subscribe in case someone comes up with a solution.

A bit late to the party but I have the same problem! How a game can be so broken is beyond me. Does anyone else sometimes load up a mission and your plane is just not there and none of your controls work?

Here.

You must force close the EXE and start again.

Worked that out, though initially my Task Manager wasn't set to be always on top so for some reason it would sit behind my HAWX window, rendering itself useless. Haha, quite frustrating!

Yeah. Just make sure you do not buy HAWX 2. It refuses to load campaign and nobody plays MP anymore. Complete failure.

So frustrating when games just die and there is no effort to revive them :(
