Is it possible for my to install Far Cry a second time? The first far cry has the 64bit exclusive patch for 32bit and I play it online.. I want a second far cry to the a 64bit exclisive patch for 64bit since I run on x64 and I want to play this one in solo mode cos I want to try out a new game extension I seen that adds more missions.. Would be nice to play that in 64-bit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Just tell me if it's possible or not and if there needs to be anything special done besides installing it in a different folder name. Id rather ask before trying and screwing up my main far cry

You can have a dual boot OS with one copy on each partition. Cuz knows how to do that, He will stop by in a few minutes I am sure.

Well, you can copy and paste a copy of the whole far cry folder into another location and upgrade one copy but not the other. That should work, but you cannot install it twice.

Yes, what Coops suggests should work, at one point I had 4, 32 bit, FC installations (3 copied from the one install, and they seemed to coexist ok)

The only thing I didnt have was the 64 bit and the 32 bit installed under the same OS, but they were resident on the same drive, so there is a slight risk of registry problems...
