I just finished the game. This is a great game (weak ending). This is the first time I have thought about playing through a game all the way twice. I think I want to give realistic a try.

I kill them just fine but after I turn off the pumps and go to go out the door ther are 5 guys to kill. Then about half way through that same spot 4 or 5 more merc drop in down a speed rope and they get me. I had to wait in that control room and take them out when they came in the door and I also threw out some nades to get them.

I know *exactly* what spot you're talking about and I think I ended up using a few rockets there as well just to stop them from coming in that door and getting to me. They have body armor so they can take a few shots. Several of them seem to come in waves. There's a cutscene in that spot right? Right as you approach the panel just past the exit to the room?

Ya that is it but I didn't have the RPG at that time so it was hard for me.

I bet it was difficult. I thought that spot was hard *with* the rpg. Grenades come in handy. I just finished the game tonight. I agree that the ending is so-so but the game is still a lot of fun. Next up: SC:PT

Hi all,

This game is awesome.

I have a question:

I have a AMD Athlon 64 3200+/ 1Gb Kingston HyperX/ MSI FX5600 XT 128mg/Asus k8v Deluxe.

When I run the autodetect I get all medium for video. I get a very high for machine spec. When I run the game at these setting I get a lot of jitteryness. I had to reduce the video settings to low. The game runs fine at these levels. I thought I would at least get "High" for video. This is a brand new system. Just built it. Perhaps I am missing some bios settings.

Any suggestions.

thanks,
Stratocaster

your ideo card is holding you back ALOT. the 5600 is a bad card to beging with and the xt (correct me if i am wrong) has a 64 bit memory interface. boo!! you should get a 5900 se or a 9800 and you would have the fastest pc on the block!

Is it true that you can run FarCry on Linux? I thought it was an April's Fool prank by crytek

edit:
Here is the link: http://0wnitsch.de/index.php?x=FAQ&y=9

I tried searching the forum's here using the key: farcry linux
and nothing turned up.

I don't think getting the game to run via WineX is out of the realm of possibility. But it has a hard enough time running on Windows so I can't imagine what performance would be like trying to run it through an emulator.
