    I guess I will have to shelve it and wait for a patch like I am doing with Hells Highway. :banghead:

    I've been curious..why are reviewers and some players mentioning the use of forced AF? I haven't seen any difference when applying a filter. It just seemed as if the game used it natively, as it's not even an option???

    That is correct, then save the game once in FS mode and it shouldnt return to windowed mode until you alt tab out next time!

    My handle is Drzzz or ZenZimZaliben.

    Now that is a good questions. How do you find people within the game? There isn't a friend list is there? Also, have not found a way to query the stats db for other players I know.

    For me DX10 runs better than DX9 on crossfire and runs very well at 4xAA max settings 1920x1200.

    Only problem I saw is once a load game made textures of wooden crate holders became purpleish.

    i've had trouble finding that one too.

    its above the main village in the southern map, on the side of the river - unlike most others, theres no where to wedge a car or boat in order to climb up, so it seems getting there from above is the only option.

    DX 9 fixes the fullscreen problem.

    Heck yeah, that is a great move to get out of the-line-of-fire.

    I think they recked the game it was nothing like farcry one, they put alot of time wasting in it, well can't blame them its not made by crytec and is not the cryengine 2, why did they sell it off? i've seen a few bugs not to many

    There are 4 golden AKs on each map, and the sliding move is a blast. It's in the manual...:)

    I just got to the 2nd half/map and like it more now that there's some more faction warfare on the scene

    I think Crytek was pretty smart, actually. They knew they had a new and improved franchise in the pipeline (Crysis) and probably made a ton of cash selling the FarCry brand.

    I also like a lot of the things they did with FC2, the open-ended GTA-meets-FPS feel appeals to me. One thing I have always disliked about FPShooters is the lack or room to roam. I think they did a great job with the aesthetic design and it's a real blast, albeit a bit too easy. The amount of punishment you can absorb is totally absurd.

    i hate the jungle, but i love the desert.

    i just wish there were more vehicles, and somebody can come up with the bloody NPS respawning fix.


    Are there any other moves like the sliding move ?

    Apparently, if you blow up the scouting posts then the enemy NPCs shouldn't respawn. I have yet to try this.

    Ah yeah the golden AK...I found that one too and it took me a while to figure out what it was about. I was hoping it was like the golden gun in 007...mwahahahah

    2nd map...huh? Are you talking about the entire huge map that takes hours to drive across? There are more? I haven't gotten too far yet.
