Have you upgraded to the 1.2 patch of Far Cry?

Not yet. I have downloaded it this morning, but i had to leave for work shortly after.

I can confirm there is a tiny bit of blue graphics in 1.2 with 61.76. Damn.

Ohh man that SUX.. :(

Umm, what is the blue graphics? Are you guys talking about that little, bluish glitch that appears for a sec or so in several differetn places during the load screen? :retard:

I see no such thing with my 5900, Forceware 61.76 (modded for SM3.0), and Far Cry 1.2. Make sure you haven't disabled the Table Fog Emulation.

a little blue graphics? i'll take a screenie for you guys to have a look at when i get home from work. it's not just a little blue graphics. The whole F#cking screen is blue! Except for the radar/threat detector in the corner. And no, i haven't disabled Fog Table Emulation.

Oh, wow, that must suck. :(

oh yeah, it does... it was even doing it with my 5700. Any drivers after 56.72's give me blue graphics in farcry. i have no idea as to why though.

Do a search of this forum or the Far Cry forum.
This subject is well documented
It has to do with yur in game graphics setting. If yu set them too high the blue hue appears, particularly on the hand. I had the same trouble and played around with the Advanced Settings to fix it.
I believe either "Special Effects" or "Lighting" are the trouble.
I have mine set at Medium and High.
I am running the game with 61.76 and patch 1.1 with no issues on a FX5900PV
Am yet to install the v1.2
Hope this helps

as i said... i'm gonna hafta post a screenie just so you can get the full idea of how bad my problem is.

I am running at 1280 x 1024 everything maxed including water at ultra high. 4xAA and 4xAF. Using 61.76 drivers and Farcry patch 1.02. I see nothing like you are describing it just looks beautiful.

07-22-04, 12:58 AM
Well the strange thing is i was actually trying to run it at 800x600 2AA+2AF High settings... now that's not even pushing a 5700 to it's limits, let alone a 5900XT, and i'm getting rather crap results.

Ran farcry demo on my 5200Ultra and looked nice but when i got my 6800 and started using the 61.xx drivers it lookes like ****. onlything that looks normal are the trees and the sky. Water isnt visable except some of the bottom of the ocean. Floors flicker or dont show up. Guess the demo doesnt work well with 61.xx drivers. Gonna post a screenshot in a min when i take it brb.
