When I do autodetect, it sets it on low. Unless FarCry is some next generation game that is meant to run on something only nasa would have, I'm pretty sure my computer would be better than default low settings.
Here is my system.
p4 2.6ghz w/ HT
512 mb pc3200 RAM
Geforce 6800 GT
I know I made a post about this earlier, but no one seemed to help. I didn't mention the fact that it didn't recognize it in the auto detect, though. Maybe that means something?
BTW, when I try and play it, I never get more than 40 frames on ANY settings, and around 2 - 10 on highest. I already updated all my drivers I could think of, unless my floppy disk needs a driver update. I installed the new windows version (service pack 2 for xp), and I installed every instance of the farcry patches, hoping maybe one would work.
Also, this might mean something - the menu lags, when I played it on my ti4200, it ran at 150 frames per second on the -menu-. It runs at about 30 on the menu. Also, the starting cinematic lags - about 20 frames, where it went at about 300 on my ti4200. I just recently got my video card, and it runs great for everything else. My benchmark scores are up to par, I'm sure. If anyone knows what's wrong, please help.
