do you have an option to enable/disable it ?

I already enabled it in the demo & it pewns !!

I think so...I checked the settings and it has low, med, high , v-high and ultra high! for water quality. I turned it on and I lost like 5-10fps lol. Guess I'll have to stick to v-high for now :P

Edit: BTW is it just me or is the screenshot key bugged? I Have an fx 5900 with the 56.64 drivers and when I press f12 I get really weird anomalies with the graphics like clipping and flashing and **** that goes away after restarting

I see .. setting water reflections to Ultra High means enabling True Dynamic Reflections .. cool!
but yeah it cost alot of performance though!

about the screenshot .. i always take SShots using FRAPS , dunno about the in-game keys.

grrr, went to EB today, and they told me Farcry was going to be released Thursday! oh, well, i'll wait for a few days: last time i bought a game on the day it was released (KoTOR), i had to wait for around one week before i could even play it, ie, the game needed to be patched to work with my 9600. i liked the demo, but i hate the save game system: i wanna be able to use quick save whenever and wherever i want!

Just got the game today and it runs excellent at 1024x768 all options maxed except anisotropic on 1 (instead of 4) and water on very high (instead of ultra high) thats with aa set to very high which is maxed also. I'm gonna try ultra high on the water now and also mess with anisotropic to see if it still plays great. I tried multiplayer and it ran very good for about 5 minutes then it said I was losing the connection and asked if I wanted to disconnect. Time to go and play some more. Damn this game looks beautiful

Okay I just tried water on ultra high and it still runs great. Game even looks better now. COOL!
Here is a few screenshots. I had to lower the res when i saved them so they would upload here. the first shot shows my fps with all settings maxed (water ultra high, AA maxed only af set to 1)

I let the auto detect pick my setting and it runs great. I also am happy with the graphics settings. Game play is much more important to me.

One screen cap has setting on low and that is where I play. The other is high. It is show just for contrast. Both are at 10x7
