...It looks delish :D
I played through when it first came out on a 9800Pro....Damn, has it grown-up. Don't know why but I installed it to v1.32 today, for no good reason and I can't believe good the new lighting looks and it runs silk smooth.
I might have to play through it again :rolleyes:

btw....no sound or graphical bugs noticed

I saw this game for like $20 at Micro Center the other day... I should go back and pick it up. Never played it ... and have heard nothing but good things for the single player :)

Still playing it now for the sixth time, it's the only game that hasn't been uninstalled since I bought it well over a year ago.
Since it's release, nothing comes close to it, definitely my favourite PC game of all time..

This is probably an old question but...

Can anyone tell me how to enable HDR in 1.32? It will be much appreciated :)

Not gone throught he game with HDR yet, is it true I have to disable AA & AF? :(

Thanks :afro2:

Type /r_hdrrendering 1 in the console.
You need to have AA disabled but you can use AF.

FarCry is a kick-ass game. Definitely worth playing. I bought a gig of ram becuase of that game. Now people are buying 2gigs for BF2. IMO, FarCry is easily one of the best games Ive ever played.

After 3 plays of the game .. i just found a secret route in the treehouse level that let you pass the whole jungle fight :o

For all you farCry fans, there's an excellent mod called "matto3" containing different levels, weapons and gameplay. Well worth the download, highly recommended, loved the ending.........MATTO3 MOD (http://farcry.filefront.com/file/Matto3;43116)

Hmm, once I get my rig back up and running (getting my case painted :D), I'll probably give a run through and see if 2GB's of ram makes a difference then 1GB. And maybe I'll finally play it with HDR!

Wow, I never even knew about the Matto series until now. You can tell Matto3 is quality right from the beginning scene, where Jack hangs down from the trees and caps the two mercs w/ the silencer. I was like, "hell yes!" If this guy doesn't work for Crytek, he should (yeah I know, this is a "cliche" to compliment a modder, but this guy really should work for Crytek). Thanks, I'll be downloading anything that is associated with "Matto" from now on.

It's really amazing how much Far Cry looks better then Battlefield 2, and even with HDR on it doesn't stutter as much.

I had the same impression when reinstalled it and updated to 1.32, last time I played this game was on my AMD Athlon XP 3000+ and my ATI Radeon 9800pro, and playing again with all maxed out.... impressive :drooling: and now playing again :D
