I was thinking the same thing, looks like FarCry with low settings.


It is,Fracry looks a lot better maxxed with HDR tweaked and everything set up as high as it can go. :)

While its true that there is a bug I have to disagree with the way the distant mountains look in 32bit vs 64bit. I took a few comparison screens with the mountain textures properly loaded under 32bit vista and 64bit. The 64 bit does indeed have more detailed distant mountain textures.

This is exactly the same way that it was with far cry.

The pach for Far Cry 64 work in 32bits with hack , is a pure marketing feature . Do you no need 64 bits for employ a bit more of Vram and Ram for the textures in Far Cry . In Vista... well is interesting for use 4 gigas

Well thats true but until there is a patch for crysis vista 64 will still have the upper hand in visuals.

I think you guys were right regarding the Far Cry pics, they were definently not at max settings now having started the game again. I dunno maybe the game had to restart before changed were made or something. But IMO most scenes are still not as impressive as I remembered them, especially the outdoor ones :D

So HERE is some real screens of far cry maxed (except for HDR which I can't figure out how to enable unfortunately):

^^Lol look at what was a pretty jungle back then. We are indeed spoiled with Crysis now :D

Anyway where the hell is the gore that was so realistic and cool in Far Cry!? :confused:

I mean bullet holes in bodies, bleeding out in there water (they don't even do that right? Or.. not completely sure) :(

anyone beat it on hardest difficulty setting yet? i tried once... got prety far... but after i kill the guys on the beach amongst all the rocks, and kill the 2 hummer gunners and drivers.. i dont know what to do...

i cant kill the boaters.. too far to pick off.. and too risky to let them call for back up.. when i get in the hummer the boat opens fire.. and calls for backup... i try walking but its so damn far... i get to a lil campout.. kill them...nmaybe 3 guys... and than i get annihilated by a huge base..

when with baot i can bypass all that but they dont want these guys calling for backup

suggestions?

If you really want to go after the boat guys, then wipe out the rest of the people and go back to finish them off. I've completed Delta mode without dealing with the boats - too much bother.

The way I do it is just juggling my cloak and using prone mode in the grass a lot. I don't run and gun.

I also keep one rifle set to the tranquilizer dart (silenced) and the other one set to single shot and silenced (aim for headshots) . I alternate between both to make sure I don't get caught making too much noise.

Use your binoculars to scan the terrain and to plan ahead; even in Delta mode the enemies are pretty much where you expect them, but the boats seem more aggressive.

Oh yeah, don't forget that strength mode + rifle makes it more accurate at longer distances.

Yeah I was wondering about that the other day when I was playing. They definately don't bleed into the water in crysis like they did in far cry. And defiantely no bullet holes. It's a lot less gory.

What do you think looks best and what hits performance the most?

r_DepthOfField = 2 (that one looks best IMO, but I didn't measure performance hit, but it seemed almost even)

Thats not what i meant agentkay! I mean the texture resolution looks alot better on the mountains in 64 bits mode...

Now how the hell can we get that into 32bit aswell?

Sorry for the misunderstanding but no I didn't figure this one out yet and I tried to mess around with DoF, and the detail cvars but didn't find it yet. There was a cvar which disabled texture LOD and that might fix it but I don't remember it right now. :banghead:

Lack of gore is to do with German laws apparently. Hopefully someone can make a patch in the future.

I'd like to know this too. No reason this shouldn't work in 32bit mode.

Also, look at this post by ice, we all are missing the 3D wave look.

The laws and the whole "FPS are killergames" debate wasn't very big yet and they made seperate versions. The first German version had less blood and bleeding into water was disabled but all of it, incl. ragdoll manipulation of dead enemies could be easily changed by modifing the config. Since this was so simple to do (and because FC was such a high profiled game) the BPjM decided to put this version of FarCry on the index (doesn't mean banned, but it can purchased only by 18+, and public advertising is not allowed, incl. open sale in stores that can be accessed by minors).

A week or two later Ubisoft released a new German version of FarCry where it was not so simple to enable the previously mentioned effects and this version was rated 16+ I believe. Some guys in the community managed to enable the gore effects a week later as well but no actions were taken by the BPjM on this new version.

I'm a little dissapointed with such little blood content in the demo also. You see the initial burst when bulllets hit, blood splatter on the surface of objects they may be in front of and a little pool on the ground when they die but no blood on the actual soliders once they hit the ground.... just a little gray mark where the bullet hit em. :(

No blood soaked uniforms either.

if you want blood..rent saw... if you want an awesome game..play crysis.

Its like...when good movies stick a sex scene in just because they can, even though it has no good reason to be there. Dude..if I wanna watch people getting nakid..i'll watch porn..atleast then I won't be left disappointed after only getting to see some tits. ^^

I don't want gore. I just want a bit more realism. hell, quake 2 showed the enemies taking damge as you pumped them full of lead. Every other FPS in recent memory also did.

A little gray dot on their skin where bullet went into them is not helping the realistic factor that the game is supposed to have.

The language to violence ratio in the demo doesn't add up.

It's about realism and immersion and it can add the the feeling of satisfaction of playing the game when you can actually see clear effects of your actions. You don't think it's more satisfactory the more realistic an opponent acts and the more realistic it looks when you shoots him with ballistic weapons rather than him just going "aaahh" and doing a little twitch then acting like nothing happened until you finally give him that killing shot that made his HP go zero then all of the sudden he's a dead object that can't be physically affected in any way. No, the realistic physical responding, bullethole showing, bleedin' in the water-style is simply more fun. It's not a huge deal, but it's one of those things that would add so much to the game compared to how easy it is to implement.

When you shoot a barrel with oil and throw it in the water, oil leaks out into the water. When you damage a tree enough in one spot it breaks. When you shoot a house with a tank the house collapses into many pieces and debris go flying. Why should it be any different with gore, apart from the lame law of some crappy ****tard politicians that think violent game will make us all psychos.. Seriously I have played all the most violent videogames and I've never had a real fight in my entire life and I'm extremely peaceful person (60s)
