Finally it's done. What's it been, 4 months in the making? Some new images:
Seems they're having some problems with the download server though. :(
I just finished Tweaker_Coast [been doing a lot of other stuff, just now got caught up, :)] and now I'm ready for more SP action. From the looks of things, this installment will be a lot bigger than Matto3, which was really pretty small. I have high hopes for Matto4. I wonder if they're already working on Matto5....
Great, thanks for the heads up Capt. Matto 4 sounds like a much bigger and better project than any of the previous Matto maps. Seven levels, rain effects, lots of new weapons, very nice. Did you mean their server on the Mattomedia site when you mentioned download problems? I couldn't find the file on any other sites. The file started downloading OK, then a little over half way through it just quit. Tweaker Coast is interesting and unique, I've played it too. If you haven't tried them yet play Skript's Catalyst mod (7 levels long & a 4 level addon coming) and Gary's Ascent, Explore, Rim, etc. Just about everything Gary makes is good.

There were some download problems early on but a lot of people got it now. I'm not one of them yet, download speeds for me are at 32 kbs so it'll be a while before I'm playing.
Here's some download links for Matto4 ver 1.0
Hopefully they'll be submitting to places like FF, so we can have some US-Based downloads, faster is always better.
Yeah Tweaker had an awesome intro but then it got kinda confusing to me. That was after I saw the level was one by Crytek, and Sniper [maker] really didn't make the level. In part two, saving the girl seemed just tacked on, but whatever. I get the feeling a mediocre SP level is better than none, but ok.
Sorry for the double post, didn't see it until just now. I see we're both having problems with Matto4, but of different kinds, maybe we can work together to resolve them. I managed to DL it off the Mattomedia site in about 25 minutes. The file seemed to DL, install and defrag OK and is of the right file size. I am having trouble getting the Matto4 shortcut to launch it though, and worse yet Far Cry won't even launch now via Autoplay or it's own default shortcut. I even tried removing Matto4 from the Mods directory and deleting the Prefetch file it left in Windows but still can't even launch Far Cry via Autoplay or the shortcut. I'm guessing it has something to do with the "Start Matto4.bat" batch file that automatically opens the DOS command window when you click the Matto4 shortcut. The DOS window sort of hangs in the background while the main splash screen comes on and lingers there a bit after the splash screen disappears. Then the whole desktop momentarily flickers after they've both disappeared and nothing, no launch. What's even more discaouraging is I can't logon to Matto's Guestbook page like I could before. I don't know if I'm using the wrong username and password but it's saying it reads the entry I type as spam and apologizes if it's not. Even the readme says "I'm sure I didn't reach the quality of Matto3."
If you can help me figure out how to get this copy to work or if one of those other links you provided has a working copy, I can upload it to my FF filepage temporarily if you like. Any help you can offer would be appreciated.;)
I'm sorry to hear about the Matto4 problems. It's still in version 1.0 and there have been a few bugs discovered already. Installer problems though I think could be solved fairly easily.
Delete all matto4 content that was installed into the /FarCry directory. Did you back up your directory? Since I still don't have the file downloaded, I don't know the exact situation. When you installed in did Matto4 make a desktop shortcut? As I recall, all previous Matto versions [1, 2, 3] were mods you had to launch in the mods section once you launched FarCry.
I posted on Crymod about the Matto4 problems with mirrors, etc and they told me to get a download manager and wait for more mirrors. Perhaps your copy is corrupt, I don't really know. But within a few days [or hours, :)] Filefront should have a copy of Matto4, and then I can get some better download speeds for the mod.
But if you think your copy is good, please upload somewhere so we can get access to it. There are currently only 3 mirrors to download the file, but I was expecting at least 5. There are no mirrors for North-America, only 1 for France, 1 for Germany, and 1 other European host. When I download a good copy I'll upload to a site and then we'll have an North-American mirror, but it shouldn't be too long until that happens anyway, as it always does with big name file releases.
I wish you luck Omen, try the deleting all Matto4 content and a re-install and tell us your results. Please no game spoilers, :).
OK, problem solved (not that it really was one). I forgot I had a 4x AF profile for Call of Duty running in my ATI 3D Control Panel. Since I don't use Catalyst Control Center (too problematic) and ATI Tray Tools that comes with the Omega driver I use had been changing my refresh rate to 60 every time I launched it, I was using just ATI 3D CP. ATI Tray Tools seems to have stopped messing with the refresh rate so I made a COD profile that launches COD with it instead. I've played through the 1st level and what appears to be at least half way through the second. Just slight lag in a couple spots mostly due to my graphics settings I think (2x AA, 4x AF, everything max except shadows and lights at High. Just one crash so far that didn't happen again when I played from the previous checkpoint, again, probably my settings. This copy seems to be OK so I'm uploading it to my FF filepage. It should be done in a little over an hour and I'll try to get a link up here as soon as I can. Thanks for the help but as you can see there really was no problem, just my own absent mindedness.:uhoh:
OK, here's the link: [COLOR="Black"]Matto4_v10exe[/COLOR]
