    I wouldn't be a good judge. I've been holding out for this patch since I got the game. I only played up to the shipwreck. I'm gonna play it on a 9800XT.

    Yeah I was amazed at the graphics on this game too. Maybe I'll grab D3 on release after all. It beats replaying Systemshock 2 again.

    I run 4xaa/8af w/vsync and tripple buffer 1024x768 all maxed with water on ultra using cold renderer. This gives me good fps and awesome eyecandy. I still have to play with it now that it's finaly patched to see what I like best.

    FarCry 1.2 Patch Issues:
    Since posting the FarCry 1.2 patch yesterday I have received a ton of e-mail from ATi video card owners saying that FarCry, once patched, is booting them back to the desktop in both mutli-player and single player games. I installed the patch myself on both an ATi 9800XT box and a GFFX 5950Ultra box and sure enough my ATi box crashes to the desktop randomly. I called tech support and was told this:

    We have received an alarming number of complaints from ATi card owners that are experiencing crashes after installing the 1.2 patch. The issue is being looked into. At this time we suggest re-installing your game without the 1.2 patch.

    I have no problem with my card and 1.2 patch.
    P.S. How do they play multiplayer, there are no 1.2 servers
