Default Far Cry for $44.99 CANADIAN until 9am today!

I just checked the Futureshop website and they are having a crazy 14 hour sale. It started at 5pm on Sunday and goes until 9am on Monday. They accept Far Cry preorders - the regular is 49.99 and it is on sale for 44.99. Best of all, it is free shipping anywhere in Canada. It is probably worth it for people in the States as well, since the exchange rate is still very favourable. Check it out:

Far Cry at Futureshop... don't forget to see what else is on sale.

I wasn't so impressed with the demo...the graphics were meh

the full game however....RULES

I jacked up to the highest settings causing my system to beg for mercy

The water at ULTRA HIGH setting =

The lighting and reflections are VERY nice, especially the lighting indoors. Reflections on the water make my video card pray for death.




This one remind anyone of Doom III?




yay for Far Cry it is the new Half Life 2!!!!

This game is great. It has my vote for GOTY(Game of the year). The graphics isnt what make it GOTY its the graphics and the fact that this is the first Next Gen Game to come out on time. Well sort of anyway. I especially like the Cold rendermode. IT gives it a little more realistic look.

Took these pics on my 9700pro 4x AA 4xAF

"Cold" Rendermode

"Improved" Rendermode

I'm struggling to find good system settings.

I'm going for 1024x768 with Medium AA right now.

Going down to "low" shadows and "medium" water seem to
be the first obvious choices.

Still looking for the sweet spot.


Holy crap - the demos didn't do the full game justice!

this game is so much fun I'm giggling like a silly girl

turns out they are fun as hell

AF doesnt create the weird problem with the rocks either

I can not figure this out.

Consider what my system is..... I've now turned everything down to Medium, I have no AA on and manually turned shadows completly off.

The FPS range is now from 25fps to over 100fps. Usually it stays at 40-60fps.

But the odd part is, even at 60fps it has a "jerky" feel to it sometimes like it's getting a low fps rate.

???

Ok, these two pics look really good. What exactly is Cold Rendermode and Improved rendermode? Is this an option in the game? Also, why does the Cold rendermode look better then the improved.

Thanks,

Render mode is like a different style in rendering the game. Think of it as an ATI smartshader effect(assuming you know what that is) but the only difference is that its part of the cry engine. there are 2 more rendermodes(4 in total) but they just suck in my opinion. Improved and cold are the best ones. Here are 2 more pics to show you the difference. Its nothing groundbreaking but cool nonetheless. Yes this is an option in the game(if your card can do it).Cold is more of a realistic look(less light on models maybe?) and improved is more of a video game look. Its the best way I can describe it sorry if you still dont get the difference.

"Cold" rendermode

"Improved" rendermode

2 questions.

1. I have no secondary fire when driving the boats? All I have is the machine gun and no rocket launcher....anyone have the rocket launcher working with the secondary fire mode??

2. Has anyone seen a great white shark in the water? been looking everywhere and can't find one. Killed mercs and tried to use their blood trail to attract one and no luck. Went swimming everywhere around the fort level and no sighting?.....this is with the full game btw.

Pretty sure there is. In the sandbox editor there are scripts for a great white shark. I have also heard people saying that they have seen them underwater.

What's the best way to deal with AA/AF in the retail game?

Currently I'm running Catalyst 4.1 and setting both to application preference and using the options in game. Do they corrospond to 2/4/6 AA and 4/8/16 AF? Having trouble telling.

Thanks.

Man I want this game so bad! I promised myself that I wouldn't buy another one until I get my EB games $20 rebate back, but this game just looks and sounds sweet.. Arghh, this is going to be a rough 4-6 weeks. I might just cave in though, hehe...
