That's the worst rule I've ever heard. It's the last day of the work week, 2.5 days for us nerds to game and they think it's a bad idea? screw them.

Apparently the idea is, if the patch has something wrong with it and they release it on a friday, they can't address the issue(s) all weekend. I find this to be a poor excuse, seeing as it's been 3 months and problems with the 1.2 patch still haven't been fixed yet.

The patching or lack thereof for this game has been a nightmare and has really killed off the community. Not so much because the 1.2 was borked, but because it's taken them so long to get a new patch out. Especially when you go to the ubi forums and ask for a date....you get "soon" everytime.

Seriously, do a search, 3 months ago when the 1.2 patch was recalled people asked when a new 1.2 patch or the 1.3 patch would be out and they said "soon". If we lived off Crytek time, HL2 is technically a year early, not late.

My biggest gripe is, the entire reason the 1.2 patch was recalled, was because sm2.0b was full of graphical errors, the 4.9 ati catalyst drivers fixed this problem, which means if it was a problem on ati's end, why did they recall the patch in the first place and what the heck have they been doing the last 3 months with the 1.3 patch?

haha no kidding. It seems like it would be a better idea if they DID put patches out on Fridays because then they would have a reason for not doing anything about the issues that could arise.

Does anyone have a link to the old thread where some guy posted a video of FarCry (this was before the 1.2 patch) had SM3.0 running with HDR on the rocky beach? I really wanna see it again! If it helps I heard it was shown at E3 also.

EDIT: NM got it! http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...ghlight=farcry

Dot50Cal - did you actually manage to find a file link in that thread that worked? Because I couldn't. Which one did work?

dotcal...your talking about the video that was actually supplied here on nvnews by jakup....he still prolly has it on his HD or on a disk...so u might want to ask him for it, or if he knows a link to it. He played it at E3.

You should know though, it was already stated by crytek @ ubi forums that the rocky beach has been cancelled from the 1.3 patch due to bugs...(always nice to show off new tech and then not deliver.) They made an odd statement that they *might* implement it into the 64-bit version, which makes no sense to me, seeing as the rocky beach scene was a part of sm3.0...but whatever....it would be nice just to get this patch already.

Apparently rumors suggest it wont be out next week either. Several ubi members who are "in the know" have stated this. HL2 is less than a month away...FC is in deep sh*t if they dont get the patch out before HL2. Eh tbh...even with the patch, I'm betting HL2 will kill what's left of the FC community...

The rocks on the beach scene is a part of sm3.0, I think they may use it for amd-64 due to the extra amount of detail they can use. But this is just a guess.
