Far Cry 2

Just bought it on Steam. Anyone else planning to get it? It looks like it's going to be pretty badass.

Re: Far Cry 2

Installed and awesome. That's all I can say. I can play it maxed out with just one of my 8800GT's in the machine without any problem.

This game is full of win.

whats your specs?

i could barely run Crysis on medium with decent framerates on my 8800GTXoc. Maybe Crytek figured out how to make their engine run more efficient on average cards?

Re: Far Cry 2

Crytek didn't create this game. Far Cry 2 is not produced by the same people that did Crysis.

Right now my specs are:

Q6600 @ 2.4ghz
8GB Ram
Raid 0 500GB 7200RPM
8800GT (going to take my other one out of the other computer and see how it does in SLI)
1920x1200

ah i thought the FarCry people created Crysis, and that the new Crysis engine was going to then be worked/tweaked better for when FarCry2 came out. I remember all the people complaining about Crysis would always say things like they wished they would take what they learned and use it to make FarCry2 better. Thats how i got the correlation between the two, plus the jungle setting made it seem kinda easy to relate the two games.

Re: Far Cry 2

Average Framerate: 20.12
Max. Framerate: 41.92
Min. Framerate: 11.46

That's with SLI and the Beta drivers 180.42 that came out for Far Cry 2. I think they are buggy though. Performance seems to be lower with these drivers than with the stable release ones.

Re: Far Cry 2

20 average framerate isn't good. By any means. You've got your graphic woo-hoo's turned up too much, or it just can't support 1920x1200.

Re: Far Cry 2

It can't support 1920x1200. I'm running out of memory. I've got it on Ultra High which is the highest it can go.

Keep in mind, that's the benchmark tool. I've been playing the game and getting 30-40fps constantly. That's with 2x AA as well.
