I'm really glad to hear that. I am really looking forward to making some maps.

For those having trouble getting this to run with the 180.42 drivers.

Just right click the FarCry2.exe and go to program compatability and 'Disable Desktop Composition'

worked wonders for me and runs smooth as silk! ;o)

Just picked up my copy. Apparently there is a batch of serial keys that has not yet been entered into the activation server. Ubisoft tech support is telling me they should have the issue resolved within the hour. I took the day off from work to play this game, I sure hope they get it fixed soon.

Glad there is a Vista fix. Installed in Vista just kept getting black screen when you try to change the res.

Installed in XP, worked fine right away. Vista once again, FTL. Nice to see a workaround, but seriously does an OS have to be this much of a PITA all the time??? When using Vista I've screamed at the monitor many times..."JUST ****ING WORK YOU PIECE OF ****!!" God, sometimes I wanna toss Vista for good.


Here is hoping Windows 7 is as Balmer said.."Vista but better". At this point I'd settle for "Vista but not constantly broken!"

It has nothing to do with vista and everything to do with the driver itself.

I dunno, to me it looks like CRAP. I'm not a huge graphics buff to begin with, but something about this "style" no worky for me. Some of the indoor press shots looked cool tho, hopefully there's scenic variety. Either that or the gameplay better kick some ass.

Can anyone comment on the multiplayer? How big are the maps? Do they include vehicles or no? Is there LAN MP or is it all online? Are there bots for Multiplayer or no?
