I had been using an fxc.exe that was modified on 09-12-2003 (772K). It was already in the /Far Cry/Bin32 directory, but I don't know if it was originally added when I installed Far Cry or by one of the patches. The version is listed as 5.3.0000001.1126.
The fxc.exe you sent me was modified on 06-11-2004 (956K). The version is 4.09.00.1247. In any event, I tested with both versions and there was no difference in performance.
