Ahh I see now why I didn't have that problem. I have a AUDIGY2 ZS PLATINUM . I did not like my Sound Storm so I jumped ship and got the Audigy2. I am glad you found a fix for it though.

I have to say if I had bought a 9700pro way back when I would have stuck with it to the next generation as well, but that's just me.

Since I sold my 5700u I fell back on this old 4600. It can run the game with everything very high and shadows medium, however I dropped down to 800X600 from 1024X768. The large scale swarms of jack a$$es, I mean mercenaries, were just too hard on it.

I am in research now. Taking my time with the game and loving it thus far.

Hows about some more pics.






I am really liking the PS 2.0 effects. Im just amazed everytime I play how good it looks. I know a common FPS boost is to turn off, or down the shadows, but with them full on, it adds a whole nother level of realism and scarey factor in doors. Especially when its mostly dark..



And of course the all too common, "crawling in a duct when a monster jumps out" at you screen shot. It seems almost every game has this now. While still good for the wow effect, its starting to show its age.

Fallguy, I just noticed in your pics that you heave a heat effect on people/monsters while using the NVG.

I don't have that effect here, well wasn't there before the patch, I haven't checked with the patch (I'm at the office right now).

I have everything in Very High. Does that effect appears when you put the water on Ultra High ?
Btw, running on an FX 5900 U.

The 'replay value' for this game is very high. I'm glad i spent some money on Far Cry.
(Unfortunately UT2004 is collecting dust atm. )

It's fun to run the game in developer mode to unlock all the levels and of course get access to the weapon cheats.
I just can't believe how cool this game is and i get surprised everytime i start playing it.

UT2004 is also collecting dust @ at my house as well. You know you've got a good game on your hands when it starts to dominate all your time like that.

Those arent night vision goggles... those are the cryvision googles... allow you to see heat in people

How could you miss that? It is an objective at one stage early on in the game to retrieve those goggles isn't it?
