Default Re: Crytek deceives and has killed any future for FarCry

Far Cry is a valid product but the support given by Ubisoft/Crytek makes me want to reconsider any future purchase from these two companies

Agreed, IMHO Crytek at best has alot to learn about the way it deals with the people that purchase and support their company. I did enjoy farcry, However the devs and their patch fiasco leave a bad taste in my mouth

Hmm Farcry.....

Well first point is dont expect hype from ANY IHV on ANY product launch. I have seen it happen over and over with ATI (True form and how it was going to change the game...which only gave us dil-do guns in a few games) and NV with the PS3.0 Farcry patch. Any time you see an IHV pimp then at their launch of a new product, warning lights like Robby the Robot has should start going off.

2nd of all Crytex should not have even messed with PS3.0 support. It made no sense to add on a shipping title. But now they pimped them selves out to both IHV to get PS3.0 and PS2.0b added to Farcry. You dont mess with a shipping product when it has a chance to cause isses (as the 1.2 patch did). It would have been much better for Crytex to add PS3.0 support, PS2.0b, HDR and what not to the engine of the next "Farcry" game. This way you dont delay any patch and risk the delays that they are facing. It was a piss poor choice on their part.....

I think they should re-release the 1.2 patch. With the 8.07 Catalyst drivers, I have absolutely no issues in Far Cry, when with previous drivers half the scenery wouldn't be rendered on version 1.2.

Maybe when ATI takes the fixes in 8.07 and puts them in a non-beta/release driver Crytek will put the patch back out there.

you can still download the 1.2 patch but hard to find so i find it for you, download here: http://www.gameszone.ro/downloads/farcrypatch12.exe i only recommend it for 6800 owners but ever since my farcry has run flawlessly for my 6800gt but on my old 5950 i got the bsod, even seems to look better when overlooking the horizon i can now notice shadowed areas of the tree tops givng a much more reaslitic look just like the picture during the loading screen

Ok back on topic of FarCry: I think that FarCry is quite possibly the best looking game/best game engine of 2004. I think that CryTek should become an engine company. I mean their game has support for rt lighting everywhere (if the mapper decides to do it) Parallax mapping, normal mapping, bright specular mapping (for shiny "plastic" instead of dry "plastic), HDR, SM3.0, etc..

One good thing you can say about Crytek and Ubisoft...they know how to RELEASE A GAME. Shouldn't we be complaining about the 1.4 patch of HL2 and how it downs the performance so badly on *blank* video card, by now?

I'm just getting pissed because I've tried to download the patch three times now and the first time it said it completed after 220kb. Second time 3.5MB and now the third time after 33MB. DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE EFFING PATCH!

Are there any other places to get this patch from? Please? 0.6kbps is going to take like 38 hours. This is ridiculous.
