Downloading FC2 now from Steam. It's only going at 300-350KBS for me here . . .

Oh well, only 6 more hours until I get home anyway so it better be done.

Thank God!!

Now... back to the problem. Using 180.42 when the game launches in Vista. If I change the resolution I still get the black window. Tried disabling the desktop composition thing but its still not working for me... anyone else?

go here 'C:\Users\YOURNAME\Documents\My Games\Far Cry 2'

and edit the 'GamerProfile' file, change 'Platform="d3d9" to Platform="d3d10", problem solved for those having problems with the 180.42's

Somebody probably solved this already. Anyway here's the fix for that black screen windowed when you first load the game. Go in your (user)\Documents\My Games\Far Cry 2 folder and open up GamerProfile.xml.
Find (Maximized="1") change it to a 0 and save. Problem solved almost. Now load game and go to options and change dx9 to dx10 and accept then quit game. load game and go back to options and change your resolution to what ever you like then accept and play. Now the 180.42 drivers work great!

PS:I could not enable dx10 and change the resolution at the same time because game would go back to that black window mode.

If you would've ordered it a few hours ago, you could've bought it for $44.99. But now, it's $49.99. Not sure how large the file is but I've read that it's around 4GB.
