"Patch 1.2 is in its final stage of production: a nasty scoreboard bug and a CDkey security issue remain to be fixed, but otherwise a huge list of improvement/fixes have been implemented and tested successfully.
We’re now localizing all the readme files, and the final candidate will be tested extensively later this week to make sure it is really solid - we don’t want to rush in the last few days after such a long development time.

Thanks for your patience,
Matthieu Boulard – Far Cry UbiSoft Producer

For more information on the Far Cry 1.2 patch, including the current changelog, check out this post on the Far Cry forums.

In addition to the improvements mentioned in the updated changelog, the 1.2 patch will enable much-anticipated Shader Model 3.0 support for NVIDIA's new GeForce 6-series cards. Leveraging Microsoft's DirectX 9.0c, SM 3.0 support will enable gamers with supported hardware to achieve unprecedented levels of realism in their Far Cry experience."

I'm not playing Far Cry because I have a GeForce FX and it runs like ass on it with the 53.03 drivers/v1.0. And I'm not installing new drivers or a patch until I get the 6800 and v1.2 comes out. :)

I'm not playing it because I've only got a TNT2 until I get my hands on a 6800 Ultra.

I've finished it. It's the best story driven fps since Half Life IMO. I can't wait for my GT to arrive along with patch 1.2 so I can play through at again. :drooling:

I have Far Cry and i've never played the single player part lol. Only the MP. I'll probably play through the single player missions when i get my 6800GT and the 1.2 patch comes out.

If you just beat it with the 1.1 patch and are using SM2, then wouldn't there be no quality change by using SM3? You'd just be playing it through with higher FPS? And if you have a 6 series card you already have good performance your first time through???

I played through it with a Radeon 9600XT @ 1024x768 without AA or AF.

Meh, thats nothing wait till the end of Volcano. The ending has an predictable plot twist and a 10 second cinema which explains nothing. Overall an excellent game but the ending was to tough with little reward.

Hey man trust me i want to leak it like crazy "its itching me" but i really cant but i can provide some info.1st you need to install the windows dx9c (summer update).build 1221 or later.
2-you have to install drivers that support SM3.0
3-install farcry 1.2 patch.
4-Copy fxc.exe from the directX 9.0c install folder tp Utilities to Far Cry Patch 1.2 Install folder then to bin32.

not the simplest task, but thats maybe cause its not the official one yet.
