Far Cry Unpatched

The recently released version 1.2 patch for Far Cry can be reclassified back to eagerly anticipated, as 3D Gamers has news that the update has been "recalled" by Ubisoft, apparently due to "unexpected behaviour on specific hardware configurations." No word on when a patched version of the patch will become available.

See the problem there is (and I don't mean to pick on you, as you're not the only one who likes checkpoint saves), if you don't like saves, don't use them. But it's not fair to take that function away from the rest of us.

Just because some people (and again, NOT you in particular) don't have the self control NOT to use the save function, doesn't mean it should be removed.

With respects to saving: the fact that you can't save everywhere should be considered a design decision, and not a bad one. I was able to cheat around it using the console once or twice throughout the game, though, when I just couldn't take the stress anymore and when I had died a thousand times before. Other than that, I appreciated not being able to quicksave every other second which I inevitably would have done if I could have easily.
I really think commonly placed auto-saves are the way to go for FPS games.

(I apologise, I'm sure you guys have had this discussion numerous times before-- I don't usually read FarCry threads. :P)

It really is unfortunate that this patch is so buggy. With the problems aside, the game does run a hell of a lot smoother with the indoor sections. 1152x864x32 with everything set to Highest, except for water set to high, 2xAA, 2xAF and the frame rates are now solid in areas that once dropped to like 15fps.

you have to wonder what the hell is going on. For a company like Crytek that released such a high quality game to struggle with this patch is confounding.

Agreed.

Ive got a 2.4 P4 with 1 GB RAM and a brand spankin new Visiontek X800 XT PLatinum. It runs like butter on mine so far except for one small glitch where some shadowing and the occasional vehicle are rendered as solid yellow. But, this was there prior to the patch so..Now if I could just find that save game patch..

I waited a little over a month to see how the 1.2 patch affected the game. During that wait Far Cry was merely wasting space. And it takes too god damn long to install.

Also, if Doom 3 doesn't suck ass I'll get it. I'm beginning to pick up an Unreal 2 vibe, though.

Once and for all? I take it you're not getting Doom3?

Already uninstalled the game a couple days ago when the patch completely fucked things over. I'm glad to have those precious 3 gigs of hard drive space back once and for all.

Ubisoft has the worst support ever in game history. I know they don't make the patches themselves, but they will release anything

... You must be new.

Ubisoft isn't stellar, but it's far from the worst in history...

Got same wave thingie going on ocasianly, what seems to happen is that the game puts your water quality into "custom", just try switching back to your original setting, (works for me.)

"I noticed that the "patch" disabled some of the graphics (i.e. crashing waves on the beach) that *weren't* causing any slowdowns."

Weird... my game (with 1.2) still has waves on the beach. You might either want to check your graphics settings and/or drivers. I have a 6800Gt using 61.76 forceware, just in case you're interested.

I noticed that the "patch" disabled some of the graphics (i.e. crashing waves on the beach) that *weren't* causing any slowdowns. And it boogered the saved games. I guess it doesn't matter, as I'd finished the game 3 or 4 times and was getting tired of it.

There's no place like 127.0.0.1

good question - but isnt the point of doom 3 liberation as well? perhaps one must descend to the depths of hell to see the heights of heaven ...

Nasrudin and his wife were in the house eating their supper. They heard a noise in their compound. Nasrudin took his gun and rushed outside. He saw something white moving near his garden. He raised his gun and shot. When he went close to see what he had shot, he discovered that his wife had washed his best shirt and had hung it on a tree to dry. Just then she came running from the house. "Oh, you unlucky man!" she cried. "You have ruined your best shirt." "No," said Nasrudin. "I am the luckiest man on earth. I almost put that shirt on this morning. If I had been wearing the shirt, then surely I would have been killed."

I thought this patch was supposed to have save anywhere? Stop working on your damn console port and fix your game, Crytek.

Wow. The magnitude of this blunder indicates some s-e-r-i-o-u-s organizational problems in one or both of these companies.

This isn't a simple oversight, or letting some "B" bugs slip thru, it means the patch was never Formally QA Tested. Which means:

No One -anywhere- in the development chain of command - from Grunt Coder I, to Project Lead, to Senior Producer, to Director of Programming...

No One ever raised the question "was the patch tested?"
???
