First off, here is my system: Windows XP Pro. AMD Athlon XP 2400+ w/2.0 GHz nVidia GeForce FX 5200 w/256 MB (8xAGP) 512 MB DDR RAM 16 GB Hard Drive 52x CD-ROM Drive AeroCool JetMaster Case w/3 fans 550 Watt Power Supply Chaintech Motherboard w/onboard sound Now some of that info may not matter, but I just want you guys to know everything just-in-case. Anyway, at first, I was very unsure that FarCry would run at all. I bought it, and the "autodetect" feature set all the video settings on "medium." The only times I ever experienced lag was when I was inside a building or ship. Out in the jungle I did fine. Then just earlier today I was playing around and set all video settings to "very high." To my great surprise it ran smoothly, but only when out in the jungle. So I want to know why I get large amounts of lag about 85-90% of the time that I'm indoors. Thanks :)
Yep I have the same problem, I have almost the same system as you have but i have a GF FX5200 128 mb. Indoors it runs soooo bad and in the jungle just fine (just as you have). It's weird, hope other people have any ideas.
My system is a: AMD Athlon XP 2200+ 512 MB DDR GF FX5200 128 MB DDR 40 GB harddrive Windows XP Pro. 52x CD-ROM Drive
Hmm... ppl its your video-cards, you need something better to run farcry smoothly... Thread Moved
Yeah i was planning to buy a new vid.card tough. I was thinking of a ATI Radeon 9600PRO a la 128 MB DDR )(maybe a 256 MB one, dunno yet)(
Got the exact same problem here as well, and almost the same systems as you guys. Outside is fine no probs, indoors when there is a lot going on its almost un-playable, my weapons don't react fast enough to whats coming at me grrrrrrr
The only thing to do (apart from a new vid card) is to reduce the graphics settings, try on the lowest poss settings and see if it makes it better, if it does then you know what the prob is. It goes without saying that you should also make sure you have the latest drivers.
Set the graffix on low, now the game is playable indoors, apart from close up images the grafix are ok to play in..
Looks like i got to give the plastic some bending again :p
