    well the demo finaly came out on STEAM several hours late :*(

    lucky for me i got to play the game for 10 mins.. YAY :D and so far it was awsome defintly buying when it comes out this month.

    then it froze.....i got on a bike (1st vehicle i found) drove it about 50 meters ( 10 seconds) and the game just froze... now when ever i boot the game it will freeze not in the same spot every time.

    some times it will freeze on the loading screen other.. other times the game will load but the screen will be stuck on the loading screen... i can hear the game running and i can hear the menu sound when i press ESC but it will show the loading screen still.

    any idea's how to fix this?... going to play around with the gfx settings for a bit.
    LifeOnMars and AsRock say thanks.

    I have the same issues sly, plays beautifully when it's running though, on 4850's at 1920x1080. Great fun!

    not sure whats wrong, playing with the GFX settings seems to fix it some times.

    Much better than the 1st one. Makes me think of Red Faction with a few extra's and be even better if they fix wrong with it which i'll wait for patches before buying.

    dropping the GFX to minimum seems to stop it randomly freezing.. but it still gets stuck for a few seconds here and there.


    also the helicopter controls seem a bit wonky, other then that its a pritty fun game so far.

    ok I sorted it ...I had to close steam and relaunch after 2nd download and then verify content then clean up cache and then it completed final set up which was c++ and DX ...I wonder is it really necessary to install that shit every time a game is installed? oh well testing game play now.

    the game does have some stunning features in graphics, motion blur, depth of field, vegetation and the lighting looks great, but it lags too much!

    Its like a mexican version of Red Faction Guerrilla in modern times though!

    Plays great...this is how I thought FarCry2 was going to be! Lol what a letdown FC2 was! This indeed looks promising! Graphics are great and smooth game play everything maxed at 1920x1080!:toast:


    30 minute demo sucks ass tho!

    True but this is the DEMO not full or final release of the game.. so all issues are only related to the demo.. i figured it deserved a different thread.


    The Demo is 1.2GB or so.



    the game runs Very smooth for me... (when it decides to work) on med/max GFX. @ 1920 x 1200.

    but it seems to lockup on high gfx... where as if they are lower'd it stops for a few seconds then goes again... fps hovers around 50 - 70.

    Childish game, perfect for consoles.

    ?? people explode with blood flying everywhere... i doubt very much this is a childs game...


    it has very good gfx physics and most of all its FUN... its just action apon more action.


    sure its unrealistic but thats the point.. its ment to be a fun game.
