didn't uninstall far cry or patch 1.1

I didn't remove previous Nvidia drivers when I installed the modified .inf file

I still have my saved games from previous gaming sessions....oh, but I have to make a new profile to run a sm3.0 game. so in effect it looks like you do lose all your saved games.

I have installed 9.0c.

Installed the patch without problem; alot of the issues and concerns people had I wouldn't worry about. I installed the game from a DVD.

***I think the performance is great! The lows fps in the game are much less, and I noticed the lighting looks frickin' awesome! Seems like the lighting (say in the cave in the first level) has been enhanced, has it? Looks very soft and such...can't wait till HDR patch!

Would any of the admins/mods have the newer fxc.exe file. If you guys do, would you be willing to share it? From the 3.0 readme notes it seems like it was probably sent to the members of the press for the preview benchs. I would imagine that with the 1.2 patch being released that it wouldn't still be under NDA or is it?

okay nevermind the jolt download easier, it doesn't want to install. Maybe it's because I don't have it on C ?

Every single download doesn't work I tried 10 places already. I have a feeling it's not a corrupt download anymore :/

Alright I have figured out it's not a patch problem, but a Far Cry problem in general. Even when I try to uninstall the game and hopefully get a fresh install in, same error.

I added the strings to the .inf file, installed the 1.2 patch and then added the sm30 to the end of the .exe in the shortcut. Now, I know it isn't working, but the game ran! LOL Graphics are awesome looking! And the best thing, don't need a No CD fix! I have several screenshots I took, might post them later. I'm able to run the game maxed out on High Quality 2xAA, 2xAF, forced Trilinear and all game settings maxed out!! Smooth as hot butter!

I had that error when I downloaded from one mirror. Try the jolt one.
