5 CDs wtf?! Who published the game and why wasn't there a DVD version made?

I think the high demand for UT2004 DVD will show the publishers it time to push dvd releases to the mainstream or at least a standard option.

Does someone know how to keep triple buffering? When I put d3d9_TripleBuffering = "1" in my systemconfig, it last only one time, when I leave the game, it get erased, even when I mark it as read only?

Playd it liked it , very sweet game,

Graphics are superb +++ (pixel shaded inside areas looks awesome outside is breathtakeing also )

Game Play is awesome as well ( you gotta hide , lean over stuff ,prone hide , sneak on enemys , driver vehicles , not simple quake shoot em up)

Physics ( ragdoll effect could use some work , but i esspecialy like that compared to other game bullets don't go thro stuff or its not worked out completely , in Far Cry they go thro soft stuf even on some rusted metal and realistic impact sounds)

AI ( is decent hideing yelling shooting calling backup )

Other stuff ( like stamina you can't run forever gotta rest or hold air under water, ret on gun aiming prone will give you best accuracy , explosion and after effect like getting unconscious plus nice effects visoon blurring )



now if only next gen cards would come out soon in more complex areas my poor 9700Pro is laggin

omg thank you Skinner! i looked though the cfg and since it isn't in there i thought i simply couldn't use it. but that command works, ya it gets removed from the cfg every time but at least it works.

Thumbs down Re: ~ | Official FarCry (retail) Feedback Thread! | ~

I am having crappy performance with my system...20fps at 1024 by 768 with everything maxed is terrible, and this on the very first room. The fps don't change at all if I turn AA and AF maxed or completely off either. Maybe it's my older drivers? Anyone else have an FX5900U so I can compare?

I'd Appreciate some fps feedback.

[EDIT] My mouse is floaty, too. Sort of like DXIW before the ini edits.

well that is because you maxed the settings, autodetect should give you good framerate and look plenty good. i think max settings will give just about any system 20fps, which is fine for people who don't care about framerate or future systems but you can always turn things down to get better framerate.

as for the floaty mouse, maybe you turned on mouse smoothing or something?

Having fun with this one! Don't have access to my 5900 or 5950 Ultras right now but the 9600XT plays well at default settings other than water set to 'high' and AF set to '2'.

The autodetect DOES set everything on Very High. On High, the framerate at the start is about 28-33 fps, on Very High....18-20.

Others may using different drivers and getting better framerates and that is why I was HOPING someone with an FX5900U would post their fps.

But nevermind. I have already seen on Ubi's forum that it is because ps 2.0 is being forced and we all know what THAT means...

TWIWMTBP

[EDIT] The mouse thing is related to the fps. At 30fps, it's fine. At 20fps, it lags. The perf issue is probably because I'm using such old drivers. I keep 45.33 so I can play Tribes 2. Guess I'll have to try some more current ones.

[EDIT] Wow this game is cool! I have a somewhat acceptable compromise going right now and the game rocks.
