i need help!! i bought farcry and intstalled it, everything was fine. The whole game was great until i started playing it. In the first level you wake up and there is a stream running by. the graphics are so bad for the stream that the stream is literaly flashing cubes. cubes the size of the main character! then when i get outside the graphics for the trees are great but the ground flashes red and blue! i've tried everything and i learned that turning the graphics down to low helps abit but it still flashes red and blue! and i also haven't installed any of the patches yet. I will soon post pics of what im talking about. I hope this is a normal problem that can be fixed! If you think you can help me PLEASE TELL ME!!!!
no need top double post.
Post some hardware specs - OS, graphics card model, video driver, memory, etc.
sorry about the double post, i clicked the post now button twice. I also dont know how to get screen shots, im using this program called gadwin print screen but it wont save while im playing the game. One more thing i keep trying to install the far cry v1.3 patch and it keeps saying " 1607: Unable to install installshield Scripting runtime" and im not sure what to do!

wait i installed the patch v1.3. The whole game has good graphics exept the ground is red and black and the water is black. but when you go under water then you can see the water, so it isn't my video card its something wrong with the game or maybe something else
i thought of maybe trying to re-install my Graphics card. But im wondering do you have to go on device manager and unistall it then re-install it?
i rebooted my video card and downloaded version 1.3 patch but im still having the same problem
Integrated graphics card, under-powered. You'll have problems even on low graphics settings.
so does that mean my game will always be messed up and theres nothing i can do about it?
Its like if you would buy a ferrari and then try to run it with water instead of fuel.
FarCry is well known for its advanced graphics.. you need some horsepower for that, clearly. But that is no problem, cause 1.you'll like the game once you can properly play it, 2.you could upgrade your system with a card from 50-100â"š¬ and it would suffice (cause FarCry is 2+ years old today).
So i would recommend upgrading your system (btw, all other newer games will tell you the same and show the same behaviour.. graphic card is your bottleneck)
To bad if you happened to break your CD's meanwhile.... not a smart move after all
