Its good to see you back! I'm looking forward for FCAM 2.0 Also Merry Christmas and Happy new year.
Thank you! And Merry Christmas and Happy new year to you too!
Yay, thank you for this. I like the standard FC graphics. I had some patch from before, 1 guy posted link in comments and I saved it to my HDD lol because I thought it's a last link. It was 1.504 :D
Anyway thanks for this :) Hope you keep working and ironing things out.
Merry Christmas :)
Merry Christmas to you too!
YES. You fixed the landscape reflections I enjoy the vanilla look although your mod has it's own visual style as well. Thank you I literally installed this game not two weeks ago discovering all the technicalities of the 64 bit and finally can have that insane view distance with iron sights and all this other awesome **** that's fixed. Where can I find a readme or changelog in the install?
Haha thanks for the kind words, the team have done a lot of hard work for this :)
Unfortunately because so much has been fixed over a long period of time, there is no change log..
It didn't fixed the landscape reflections for me..
And the 64 version have a lot of problems...
maybe I did something wrong but I dont think so.
Yeah didn't fix it for me either.
So, let`s make this clear - the last official patch is 1.4 ( right now I downloading this version ).
And here is patch 1.505 ( actually updated just a day ago ). I know about unofficial 1.41, 1.42 patches. Two years ago I played FC with 1.42 patch. Is 1.505 are evolution of 1.42 ?
And finally I found this 1.6 patch here Farcrypatch16.de
According to readme: "This patch combines the best of all previous released versions: 1.33, 1.4, XT4 and FCAM."
So, what patch should I install for perfect single playing ?
This is a quote from the 1.6 site..
"iLLU: Because database admin access and 1.6 sql coding parameters (that is the main problem) have never been in my hands, I fear that at the moment there is no chance to get 1.6 back alive."
Also 1.6 is only for multiplayer and breaks things like singleplayer, mods, etc. 1.5 does not.
1.5 keep the original FarCry as ORIGINAL only to fix and improve. Choice is yours as to which you want to use :)
Yes they (1.6) took stuff from FCAM and put it in their version..
1.5 is MUCH more extensive than 1.41 and 1.42.
Garcy, thanks for reply, I will install your patch. If I want to stay maximum close to original FC, I need only patch 1.505, without FCAM ?
There is a major bug in this patch. Game only see checkpoint maded at level start, all next checkpoints are in savegames folder, but not on the list in load menu (quicksaves works ok though). Checkpoints not shown in game are also not listed in sav_base.ini in levels folder. It is a LITTLE annoying issue. If someone know some workaroud other than doing quicksaves i would be glad.
I can confirm this bug.
A workaround might be to create a script that adds all saves to sav_base.ini.
I can confirm this bug too, by the way, ennemies can prone in this version, I always hated that ^^ feels unrealistic how they instantly switch to prone, please remove this from 1.5, only leave it in FCAM
What file directory do I put this mod in? (Steam)
Version.txt still says 1.504. It appears that FC.exe references this file for something (hopefully nothing important).
This patch messed some of the textures for me ... the mountains on that stage where you use the hang glider for the first time are missing and written "replace me"
Are you using FCAM with graphics or just a patch with no graphics?
I dont know details of the instalation process , but BEFORE the patch i was using FCAM , then i installed the patch ... i don't know if maybe that is a overwrite/bad overwrite... issue... But if nobody else experimented this, than it must be my error. Anyway thanks for the interest
No changelog 1.4 -> this?
Give the changelog here. I would like to see it before downloading this.
This patch deleted all my checkpoints. And once I started the game, I found that it gave FarCry Aim-Down-Sights, which is a feature I absolutely do not want. All I want are the bug fixes, like AI shooting through tents, getting caught on geometry, and low detail foliage.
ADS can be removed in the game's options :) as well as the crosshair while not zooming (which is pretty cool)
will this work with FCAM?
Mod dead ? Author was not been here for the long time ...
Is it compatible with 64-bit patch ?
This comment is currently awaiting admin approval, join now to view.
Here is a workaround for everyone who got issues with the autosave feature: navigate to your FarCry installation folder \FCData and open "ZZZScripts150.pak". Go to Scripts\MenuScreens and delete "Campaign.lua" as well as Scripts\MenuScreens\Ingame "InGameSingle.lua". The only drawback seems to be, that the quicksave-option is not available anymore within the menu. So you'll have to decide which of both you prefer.
I'm still having the movement issues in the multiplayer portion of the game. As soon as I create a game, and move my character in game just a single step or more with the forward key, and release that key, the character continues to walk at a snails pace forward instead of just standing still!
I think this could be a common bug on modern PCs, it happens on both my PCs with Windows 10 64 bit (both have high specs aka gaming PCs).
Is there any fix to this, or maybe a console command I would need to type in to get rid of this issue?
This patch did sadly not fix this issue, so I guess I'm out of luck.
Hey, I have tha too, but I think it could be a desyinc issue rather than in-game bug.
ok this added a cpl of loadscreens i had to click thru and it removed my mouse pointer.... is that suppose to happen??
This seems to crash my game after installing it on the gog version.
