yes I guess 5fps can mean the difference between playable and nonplayable... but I am HUGE on graphics 5-10fps is definetely worth it for me!

Thumbs up Malfunction....

Your doing AWESOME with your GFFX 5200 Ultra

I tried playing on my setup with 1 gig of ram and graphics are all messed up. If I did screenshot you all would have good laugh

Its still a blast to play tho, Im definitly getting this game. I have an AXP 2600+ Barton and an Albatron GFFX 5900PV (400c/850m) about ready to install, so hopefully game will play pretty well at 1024 x 768 with everything pretty much on high (I hope)

I grabbed this from a shacknews forum topic (http://www.shacknews.com/ja.zz?id=9244961):

"Make Far Cry look even better.

Maybe this is old news, I dont know...I'm to tired to know either way. Figured some might be interested:

Go into C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Crytek\Far Cry Demo\Levels\Fort
or whatever drive it's on. now make a copy of the level.pak file.

Next open the non-copy in Winzip and extract the files to a temp folder. Open up mission_fort.xml in Word or whatever.

Scroll down till you see this line
Water="TerrainWater_OnlySky

Delete the _OnlySky part.

Now save that. Repack those files in a zip and rename back to level.pak

Replace in your directory.

You're done.

Now EVERYTHING will be reflected in the water. Your own body, trees, rocks, whatever. Everything will be seen in the reflections. It's really amazing.

This is a copy and paste I found somewhere. I havent done it myself, because I dont have the demo yet. I've seen screens, looks groovy, and supposedly it doesnt completely murder your framerate. Supposedly. I did see screens, so its most likely legit.

Again, ignore if old. And ignore is the markup crashes and burns...heh. "

And this from another topic (http://www.shacknews.com/ja.zz?id=9239100):

" I was toying around with the console in the Far Cry demo, and I found the following commands that you may want to try out for fun:

\ca_DrawBones 1: display bones used by skeletal animation engine
\cl_display_hud 0: hides the HUD, play in full screen
\hud_panoramic 1: use with cl_display_hud 0, play in letterbox mode for a movie-like experience
\e_terrain_lod_ratio: set to 1 or less to display more detail in the terrain far ahead
\g_maxfps 15: (ATI cards only) simulate the game running on GeForce FX hardware
\MemInfo 1: display interesting information about game modules and memory consumption
\r_DisplayInfo 1: display performance statistics such as fps, number of polygons in scene, etc
\r_Stats 1: display info on current shaders and textures
\r_RenderMode 1: use "soft light" renderer for a dreamy effect
\r_RenderMode 2: use "cold colors" renderer for a realistic effect
\r_RenderMode 1: use "cel shaded" renderer for a cartoony, XIII-like effect
\r_RenderMode 1: use "ultra contrast" renderer if you want to ruin your eyes because you can't see anything
\e_water_ocean_sun_reflection 1: enable cool effect of sun reflecting in water
\r_WaterReflections 1: already enabled by default, consider disabling it to boost fps
\r_WaterRefractions 1: disabled by default, enable for refraction effect in water
\save_game AnySaveGame: saves the current game into the file AnySaveGame
\load_game AnySaveGame: obviously, loads save game AnySaveGame from disk
\start_frame_display: I'm not even gonna try to explain what's going on there, lots of cool renderer stats
\start_frame_profiling: remove stats shown with start_frame_display
\w_recoil_max_degree 0: for you ladies out there, disables the recoil of all the guns
\w_accuracy_decay_speed 0: another one for the mouse-handicapped, gun accuracy remains steady while firing

If you know of some more interesting ones, please post them and share with everyone! "


I havent had a chance to test these yet but I thought it was worth sharing here.

Plays pretty good on the most side, smooth then stutters like hell which shange as it clears it's self up then stutters again. It's as if i am out of memory or something but i have 1GB so thats not the case.

Playing at 1280x1024 + V-high detail no FSAA/AF

Possibly out of VRAM, the stuttering could be pulling textures across the AGP bus.

And use MS Word to edit the file, well it is page 7 section 1 line 7 of 212. And it does work, just cost me some FPS though so I am gonna need to replace only when I wanna make screen shots.

Also \g_maxfps, I thought that was pretty funny so I set mine to 1000 fps knowing my vidcard can not do it but won't be limited in any circumstances. I suggest ya'll do the same as you don't wanna be another Firing Squad review and forget to do it just like they had in CoD.

\Meminfo 1 works too as does \r_stats 1. Haven't been to interested in the others yet.

Peace,
