To Enable HDR Effects-
Add the following to the end of your Far-Cry command line shortcut.

It should look similar to this-

Ack, doesn't look like this patch is compatible with version 1.2 compatible savegames. :fu:

Oh well, I'll be with DMA in happy 3DC land. Woo.

r_HDRRendering 1 I believe... haven't used it yet though... fixing to install the patch right now.

10-25-04, 11:58 AM
r_HDRRendering 1 ???

Edit: Beat me to it :p

10-25-04, 12:00 PM
Screen shots boys. I have been waiting for this patch before picking up the game. :nanahump:

10-25-04, 12:09 PM
hey, what was the original command for sm3.0 ..something like r_sm30 or something? Anyone know? I took it off but sm3.0 doesnt seem to be working "automactically" like the patch said it would...i;ve noticed some big dips in performance.

10-25-04, 12:09 PM
Reinstalling FarCry and downloading patch now...

Mr. Hunt
10-25-04, 12:10 PM
Well... if I put up screenshots it will just show how they screwed up again. Because for whatever reason many things are either completely invisible (most walls) or some things are ALMOST invisible (most models)... glad the recalled 1.2 patch was better. From what I could see through the walls the lighting did look interesting though. I guess they made all walls see through so you don't have to go through the level just to see HDR :\.

10-25-04, 12:12 PM
I cant enable hdr...what'd u do?

10-25-04, 12:13 PM
Its beautiful, ill post screens in a sec

Mr. Hunt
10-25-04, 12:15 PM
Anybody know why I am having the problem I am having?

U17... I just added "r_HDRRendering 1" to my shortcut.

10-25-04, 12:16 PM
do you need to use the old SM30 path command thingy too???

10-25-04, 12:18 PM
do I need to add the " " or just the words?

"C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Crytek\Far Cry\Bin32\FarCry.exe" -DEVMODE "r_hdrrendering 1"

Make sure AA is off. Turn everything to very high, water to Ultra if you like nice looking water ;)

Holy performance drop Batman! Running HDR on a 6800 GT is like running dx9 on a 5900 Ultra. Still looks nice though. If I remember correctly, they said to re-load the level after playing through it and performance would increase some.

Ok... I guess it was because I had AA enabled :\... It does look great but I still wish the displacement mapping would have been added.

I am going to be playing through the other levels soon... I just tried Training and it is crazy when you look outside because you can't see ANYTHING basically... you have to wait a second to wait for your eyes to adjust :\.

10-25-04, 12:31 PM
For those who don't know, there's apparently 11 different HDR effetcs...change "r_hdrrendering 1" to "r_hdrrendering 2"(,3,4 and so on to 11) Apparently ubi says "r_hdrrendering 7" looks the best. If anyone can take pics of the different types it would be appreciated.
