HALP!
 
Okay, so I'm trying to play through the original FarCry again, and I'd like to use the HDR patch and 64-bit patch to enjoy it in all it's out-dated-killer-graphics-that-pwned-rigs-from-2004 goodness. :D :lol:

Anyhow, dl'd the beta 1.4 patch and 64-bit update from Guru3D but... can't play the game now. The 64-bit exe is missing any and all ground textures, and the 32-bit exe just wont load period.

Any way to get this game going with these patches/updates?

Specs:
i7 920 (stock)
4GB DDR3 1066
HD5770
Win7 Ultimate x64

Thanks ya'll! :D

I rather enjoyed it. Stereotypical FPS that pushed the graphical boundaries for its time. Considerably more enjoyable than the 2nd one, imo. :)

1.4 also introduces the fantastic bug of the enemy being able to "see" you and shoot through walls and tents and other objects even if you can't see them :D

That would be preferred vs. it's current state, as it isn't even playable right now. :(

Is it just too old? Would I be better off playing the vanilla version?

What do you have it on? Discs or off Steam?
