Test Results

Selected Test Results

What works

  • GoG installation worked perfectly, no errors.
  • Single-player story mode can be played to completion. Also tested with Scubrah's Patch (highly recommended) and encountered zero issues.
  • Benchmark tool works, although not essential.
  • Briefly tested multiplayer by hosting a LAN game and running around for a few minutes.

What does not

  • DirectX10 is unavailable in graphics options, but it was always buggy in Windows.
  • Dedicated server for multiplayer closes immediately when ran.
  • Map editor does not open at all.
  • Online multiplayer (master servers were shut down in 2021)

Workarounds

  1. winetricks dxvk
  2. DXVK_FRAME_RATE=60
  3. farcry2.exe -GameProfile_SkipIntroMovies 1
  4. LAA patch on farcry2.exe

I use DXVK_FRAME_RATE=60 to cap the framerate, but you can also use startup parameter -RenderProfile_MaxFps 60 instead. Going above 60fps is bad because it causes physics bugs, "bouncing NPCs" and other problems.

The Large Address Aware (LAA) patch stops the game from randomly crashing during loading screens. Scubrah's Patch comes with an LAA patched executable already.

What was not tested

  • Multiplayer against another human player. 

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

The frame-rate issues from my last report have been fixed since I last played. Upgrading rating from bronze to silver because the core game is now playable, but some issues do not yet have fixes or workarounds.
