What u guys useing for that benching graph?
the game makes it, with the built in benchmarker.
Here is 1600x1200 at ultrahigh settings.
probably play it at 4x for higher fps. Im amazed at how optimized this is.
yes. not specifically. but at the beginning of the game, when that guy rescues you after you escape from that village where you meet The Jackel. he takes you to a shed where you pick up your weapons. its right in there laying on a table. if not on the table its somewhere around there or in the same area. i know thats where i got it. because i went outside and first thing i did before i fixed the car was start some fires
go go, AMD! gogogogogo
max settings, 1680X1050, no AA
wheres it located i didnt see it?
in the fc2 folder in program files. under ubisoft. its in the "bin" folder
In the start menu, under ubisoft/farcry, there is a benchmark executable.
ooh ok i remember gotta find it now
Ok heres my results with my res and all maxed out and cards at stock settings!!
Not to bad for stock!!
makes no sense to me, in dx10 i get 20fps in dx9 200
You getting a false reading there!!
Anyone know how to change the FOV? Its like playing the game in gun barrel vision.
it cant be done. i've been reading up on it.
#1 4:3 and 5:4 users get a 75 degree FOV. its because it gives a higher FPS (albet not much) so they used this to cheat performance on a console. Also, it makes the image 'larger' therefore easier to aim with a controller.
#2 16:9 and 16:10 widescreen users, get the same 75 degree FOV... with the top and bottom cut off. we cant see the bottom of the map when driving, we cant see the butt of the gun, etc.
Its a terrible problem, the official forums are full of people getting motion sickness, mostly on smaller screens (19" and under)
The FOV isn't as big of a deal as I thought, you can look down at the map while driving...but in the end it's all good...I wonder if they'll patch it tho.
Well I guess I am not buying this game then. I am not paying for a cut screen game.. Thats ridiculous.
Aww...but I can't kill ya online if ya don't get it!
If that's a deciding factor and a big deal for ya, then you're prolly better off not getting it until they've patched it or someone has a "fix" for it. I'll continue to enjoy my copy tho! There's some small gripes (imo) floating around here, but even with those that I do notice, which are few, the game is more than good enough to make up for it! (imo )
I really like it too but I don't think they deserve my money until they fix it. How hard could it be to set the fov a little higher?
I imagine it can't be that hard...I used to think that way, I was A LOT younger and money was a lot tighter, doesn't mean I don't budget shop or plan ahead still. But they should at least have a slider, or it should change...granted the game is very young...I remember all the pissing and moaning when Bioshock was fresh, weeks fresh about this issue, with fixes, patches, etc...I'm sure there will be a 1.1 patch to cure what ills the game to many.
OK i have been having some issues with FC2 I was hoping I could get some help with PLEASE!!
So far a GREAT game. but it would crash about once every hour or two, with no error's. then earlier today I was playing and a little box pops up from windows saying it needs to restart because it just updated. And when it did that it made the game restore down to a smaller screen. and there is no way to get it to start in fullscreen now! also a more serious issue, DAMN DMA errors wont let the game start now for some reason saying that my cd is a "backup disc" not the game disc.
Does anyone have a clue? also if I have to reinstall it where does FC2 store saved games?
Im using hotfix CATs
It just crashes on me for no reason too..
hope you get that other mess worked out. and i hope i don't run into it. my game "updated," too. but it did so before the game started so i guess it went ok. although it does keep reminding me my drivers are "old" every time i start (175.16. not that old)
anyway saved games folder is in Documents > My Games > Far Cry 2. or at least should be
Doing the same thing to me today as well. WTH.
Hmm..I've had no crashes on my end...wonder wtf is up...are all of you guys using the hotfix drivers?
I'm using hotfix drivers. Not sure why it just closes. It will close and go right to the desktop as if I alt+f4'ed.
Odd...anything in Event Viewer by chance? I'd say go back to an older driver and see if it happens...unless you already have.
