HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
­Far Cry ­HOWTO­­

Installation:­­
­
If ­you use the CD/DVD version run the setup program on the DVD or the first CD, and be sure it doesn't install Adobe Acrobat or DirectX.
­
Patching:

Version 1.4 is required for multiplayer and contains many engine improvements. The version downloaded from Steam is also 1.40.

The 1.6 community patch is available and contains many bug fixes and improvements, particularly for multiplayer.

Optional OpenGL Renderer:­

There is an OpenGL renderer that has most of the visual effects present in the Direct3D one, but should run faster. To enable it, change "r_Driver" from "Direct3D9" to "OpenGL" in the 'system.cfg' file.

The older OpenGL renderer in version 1.0/1.1 exhibits less artifacts, whereas 1.33 and above have a problematic water shader, and portions of far-off terrain render incorrectly. Regardless of the game version, set the shadow quality to 'medium' and the lighting quality to 'high'.
