Default Farcry making me cry

Farcry keeps seizing up and being laggy, even playing it offline.

I have suspicions it may be my graphics card needing upgrading?

Can anyone shed some light on this situation, check my signature for computer specs.

Thanks,

J

I have answered this question about 4 times now.

Search this site for FarCry and CRYEngine and you will get your answer.

Try upgrading your graphics card drivers!

Erm; well it works on mine in Medium in caves and High outside - I don't know about cards below that but I know mine is pretty cheap.

I know Anti-Aliasing takes a lot of power; what setting are you running under?

Default Re: Farcry making me cry

my lord, im running EVERYTHING on lowest setting, i think AA is off or set at 1, and still i get joggyness but usually only in places where it has to load up multiple planes helis etc. I'm going to reinstall graphics card drivers, not sure what else :/

My CPU is now running nicely overclocked at 60oC max... usually 43oC idle, so i doubt its a heat problem.

I really am stumped i would have thought my specs. could run it at lowest?

I imagine its the card then; my friend only has a 2600+ and Far Cry works on his with Medium/High with an ATi 9600.

I don't know how much cards are; last time I priced up cards was July last year so my knowledge on it is a little outdated. But I know it won't be that expensive to get FarCry working at Low or even Medium.

There's a patch for Far Cry coming out any day now that may fix your problem. Also , some 9800 owners have been notincing the same thing, maybe a memory upgrade to 1Gig is in order if the patch doesn't sort it.
