Question FarCry: Shadow problems with GF 6600 GT

I'm actually using the demo version of the game, but I have to know if this problem is fixed in the full game etc.

The problem is that if I set shadows to high or very high in the advanced video settings, the game starts to display big black squares under mercenaries when I get close to them, whether they're dead or alive, as long as the body is on the ground. The texture just turns black. Here's a picture: http://mbnet.fi/acx/farcry.jpg . I'd like to know what might cause this and if there's any way to fix this, I'd really like the shadow effects...

I'm using a geforce 6600 GT

The Demo doesn't properly support NV4x cards, or it certainly didn't when I used it. If you want things to display properly, I'm afraid you'll have to actually pick up the game. You CAN use 3D-Analyze to trick the demo into thinking you have a Radeon 9x00 or GeForce FX, and that'll at least give most of the effects properly, but I still experienced some problems with this route.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

Thumbs up Re: FarCry: Shadow problems with GF 6600 GT

Okay. I tested the program you suggested and the graphics started working and they looked a whole lot better overall. Thanks.
