Far Cry Discussion
(I did manage to work around the copy protection and changed the lua file successfully)
Next. I clicked on Start > Computer > Far Cry\Bin32 folder.
Then Right click on FarCry.exe and selected properties from the list. I then selected the Compatibility tab and checkmarked the Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3), down bottom, under Privilege Level I checkmarked Run this program as an admimistrator.
Now it is working fine in Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
My computer specs are:
Intel i7 870 @2.93
8GB DDR3 1600 RAM
Nvidia GTX470 1280MB GDDR5
Thanks for the help, Mark, but I followed your directions with slight variation: The patch was attempting to install files to C:\Program Files (86)\Ubisoft\Crytek\FarCry\
however, there was not "Crytek" subfolder in my computer, so I changed the destination directory to C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\FarCry\
And after the installation finished, I Changed the shortcut I had created ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Far Cry\Bin32\FarCry.exe" -DevMode) to run as admin and in WinXP compatiblity mode.
I ran the trainer program and then opened the shortcut, clicked BackSpace and tried some of the commands, but couldn't get any of them to work.
Any idea what I might be doing wrong?
OS Win7 64 Bit, 8GB RAM
I'll give EvilSpenZer's editing of the devmode.lua a try and let you know and report back on how I go with it.
In the mean time, I'm using a trainer I found at game copy world dot com that works really well. If you want to try it, go there and look for the Far Cry v1.4 +12 TRAINER. It works great.
One other thing, I never install games in the C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) because the Windows 7 security is far too strict on anything in there. If you try to edit the devmode.lua, you may not be ale to save the changes. So it is better to have them in, for example, C:\Games, or better still, not on the C: drive at all. I have my games installed on other partitions (D: and E: drive partitions).
Hope this helps.
