Default show fps in far cry?

Is there a way like in the source engine to show the current fps while you are playing far cry? I did a search on the web but came up empty...

Press ~ to bring down the console then type:

\r_displayinfo 1

To shut it off:

\r_displayinfo 0

EDIT:
Some really cool commands from Tweak Guides!

My favorites:
\AI_IGNOREPLAYER [0,1] - Toggles whether the AI can detect the player or not. 0=Off, 1=On. (Devmode only).

\AI_SOUNDPERCEPTION [0,1] - Toggles the AI's ability to perceive player-based sounds. 0=Off, 1=On. (Devmode only).

FRAPS is much more user friendly than typing in the commands for each game. All you have to do is double-click on the FRAPS icon and it will display any games FPS in the corner of the screen while you play. As a bonus, you can also use FRAPS to take screenshots and videos of the game.

Not to mention it can record FPS, give you an average and save the results in a text file

yea, fraps is one of the most useful utilities I have ever used. I have yet to see a game it doesnt work with, and it contains absolutely 0 bloatware, ads, b.s. And it is updated regularly. A fantastic little program
