Far Cry Patch Recalled

42

Ubisoft let us know that the Far Cry 1.2 patch released a few days ago has been recalled. According to the publisher "Far Cry patch 1.2 has shown unexpected behaviour on specific hardware configurations. These matters are mainly due to incompatibilities with several optimisations brought lately to the code, with the intent to please a large number of users". CryTek is working on a fixed version of the update to be released "as soon as possible".

      I did this yesterday: you have to uninstall the entire game, reinstall the entire game, then install the 1.1 patch, which forces you to "uninstall" the previous 1.1 patch even though it doesn't exist. You WILL lose your checkpoints in the process (I had already deleted mine once I figured out the 1.1 checkpoints wouldn't work in 1.2). If you try to load a 1.1 checkpoint in 1.2, it might work, but most likely the game will crash to desktop, and if the level has a forklift in it, the game will CERTAINLY crash to desktop, with an error citing the "Forklift entity".

      That's a lot of work for getting rid of one patch; I was motivated since I wanted to move FarCry off of the 36GB Raptor to make room for Doom 3.
