Far Cry Patch Plans

On the eve of the availability of Crytek's first-person shooter, there's news of plans for the first Far Cry patch on GameSpot (thanks Ant). According to the report: "The patch will be released this Thursday, and it will resolve compatibility issues between the US and Canada, as well as repair multiplayer damage issues. Ubisoft will release an online tutorial for Far Cry's Sandbox editor tomorrow, in addition to a quick-save patch in mid-April."

Love people that have no clue what they are talking about.

For 1, the Auto Save function is fantastic in the full game. You can focus on playing instead of remembering to save every 5 minutes. There are auto save points everywhere, would be impossible to miss them even if you tried. As for Quick Saves you can enable the Developers Cheats to get Quick Saves in the full game. I will never do this myself, and I wouldnt advise it.

As far as the AI goes...the enemies do react to bodies on the ground, difficulty level plays a part in it. As does the amount of time the corpses are allowed to remain on the ground before decaying. By default it is 30 secs, I changed my settings to 120secs. No they don't always duck behind objects to go for cover, but they do more often than not, and they keep moving from 1 cover to the next. If you think you can do better...start programming AI yourself and we'll see how far you get. The AI in Far Cry is some of the best Ive seen in a First Person Shooter, more reason than anything is because they don't do the same thing every time.

ie: Helicopter is chasing you overhead, you die...you think ok this time I'll take out the gunner when the helicopter hovers for 3 secs at that one spot...oops wtf he flew off the other direction this time because I took cover behind that big tree to line up my shot.

And yes I downloaded the game, a) I will be buying it next week for multiplayer and mods, b) I downloaded the DVD version and North America is only getting the multi CD release, so now I dont have to deal with a 3 or 4 cd install in the future.
