17. Re: DO NOT INSTALL THIS PATCH Aug 10, 2005, 19:59 itzaaron
 
I would say that I expect the Far Cry community to have a patch to allow you to save your info ready any time now, but I'm trying to make one myself and it's not going as smoothly as I planned. I think the login process stuff might actually have been moved into the game's executables so that cheaters can't avoid the authentication process. A quick look through CryNetwork.dll seems to indicate that this is the case.

Unfortunately, I never got into ASM hacking, but maybe somebody will look at the code and find an easy way to get a stored user name in there.

Edit: I should comment that, although it's a bit of a hassle, I don't find typing in my username and password each time I log in to be particularly straining, and I wouldn't advise people to hold off on patching just because you'll have to type 15 or 20 characters when you want to play.
