If you have an NVidia card, and you just get the splash screen and a black flash and then nothing... your might want to downgrade your NVidia driver. Yes I do mean downgrade not upgrade. The current version, 77.72, does allow FarCry to run. 61.17 works but has shader issues 71.89 works fine http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_71.89.html

77.72 DOES NOT RUN... And just for reference, 71.89 WILL run Doom3 while earlier ones will not... Here is where you can find all NVidia XP drivers. http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp-2k_archive.html If you don't have an NVidia card and you have this problem, be sure to include your log file in your post. The default location is c:\Program Files\Ubisoft\Crytek\Far Cry\log.txt
