I've looked everywhere for this and can't find any solutions.

Installed great, but once I double click the icon or FarCry.exe it shows a screen for a few seconnds and then just disappears.

I have Directx and the space. What do I do?

What are your computer specs?
First thing to look at is what video card are you using, and what driver. Also, what type of disc drive are you using. Certain RW drives and others, along wth copy software, will cause the game not to work.

ive got the same prob, it worked fine for a few weeks but then i played Rainbow Six 3 for a while and far cry didnt load anymore. i got patch 1.3.

I looked at the log.txt file and it simply stops. first i thought error=8 was the problem but that show up in any log file i can find on the net.

here it is:

Hi


I have seen this error due to a bad stick of memory.

Try the memory in different slots or try one stick at a time and run the game to see if it works.

Good luck.

Thnx for the reaction, but it had something to do with my ATI control centre setting. I switched to omega drivers and now it works fine again. I think that Rainbow 6 changed some setting in my control centre, i juts dont know which one cause i tried them all =)
