Tested 5 CD retail version, with official patch 1.4 and unofficial patch 1.6 installed.
What does not
Installing or launching the game directly from CD.
What was not tested
 To get the installer to work, I had to extract all files from the 5 CDs and run the extract setup.exe. When run directly from CD 1, the installer would infinitely ask for CD 2 (even after mounting CD 2).
 To progress past the first level, "Training", I had to set r_Driver="OpenGL" in ../Ubisoft/Crytex/Far Cry/system.cfg. The game would frequently crash to a Crytex engine crash screen when trying to load the second level, "Carrier". According to Ubisoft and Steam forums, this is a pretty common random error but was supposedly fixed in one of the official patches. The official patch did not fix this error for me, but r_Driver="OpenGL" did seem to fix the problem.
I also required a no-cd patch to run. Launching with CD 1 mounted would not work.
