I don't know if FC even OFFICIALLY supports HDR. There was a similar post like this on Crymod.com. I don't think they came up with an answer either. My best guess: 1. A third-party mod that makes the game appear like it is in HDR [there's one mod like that I know of. It just came out like a few days ago.]. 2. Max everything out in the graphics catagories and it will be pretty close to being in HDR. Good luck to you in finding out how to enable HDR. CryEngine 2 will support it for sure. Damn, that looks so awesome.

Far Cry does have hdr with 1.3 patch but you will have to turn of AA or it wont work. In the console just type \r_hdrrendering then a number from 1 until 7. I've heard some people say that hdr doesnt work in far cry with ati cards. (i have an x850xt pe and havent tested it yet).

I think you need shader model 3.0(only the 6xxx series and 7xxx series support it) for it, Hl2 has it(in the lost coast) but it uses shader model 2.0b.

No need to be angry sharkey. Wait for CryEngine 2.0 to come out. Volumetric clouds and HDR per pixel lighting and pixel shader 3.0 for everyone! From the video it looks like they're making Farcry 2. Or maybe that's just another tropical FPS game, I don't know.
