Awesome! I think that looks good. What do you think of the game so far? Also what settings are you running at?

I run at the settings that are in my last bench. 1920x1200...

The game is awesome! Great graphics, great sound, good performance (well programmed game). A lot of things can be destroyed or set on fire. :D

A lot of innovative gameplay features... Exploding ammo (if you set ammo on fire, you cant use it anymore, because it all explodes), trees can be destroyed, houses/ huts blown up...

It rocks!!!

And I must say it runs really good on a (1!!!) HD4870X2. And the game runs better @ DX10 then it does @ DX9. First game ever that runs better @ DX10.

Game Of The Year, Easily!

What a blast creating your own unique mp maps, setting fire to the grass & bush behind you as u escape to stop players following you is freakin awsome!

How do other players play maps that you create?

You upload to a central server, buddies need to download same map from there.

Where do the map files go?
When using the map editor in Vista, it saves the maps to: "C:\Users\*your username*\Documents\My Games\Far Cry 2\user maps" Place the map files here.

It auto downloads when you join server.

Wow that's pretty awesome.

The game black screens using the new 180.42 driver in Vista x64 :(

Lol, yup they release a new driver especially for FC2 & it's borked!

Rolled back here & it works fine again.

Certain shots make the game appear beautiful, others make it look like crap. Shots of fields that lack shadowing vs darker shots that give the game a completely different appearance...

So you had the same problem?

I'm also rolling back now :o

so all you get is black screen? that is often caused by some type of AA issue.

have you tried with AA set to application? or set it off?

I'll try and pick it up this weekend to see what it's all about.

So can you go in and edit any ini files like crysis?
