can u guys tell me whats causing this, click here its only on 1024x768 and everything on default
yeh i get that same problem, i figured it was just that my video card didnt support a few of the things farcry required .. such as pixel shading .. maybe its just a problem with the demo .. i only encounter it sometimes like if i accidentily press the windows key when i get back in its like that .. so yeh your not alone
I'm not sure. I've been playing the full thing with my 9600XT and haven't seen that. Sometimes problems crop up like that in demos.
Also, save the pic as a .jpg next time. Bitmap images tend to be pretty big (in terms of megabytes), and aren't considered to be "web-friendly" image formats.
I've seen some pretty ugly artifacts a lot like the ones you're experiencing on my 9700Pro. One time it was after I forced 4x FSAA. It seems that certain pixel shader 2.0 effects aren't compatible with FSAA, and Far Cry happens to be full of them. The other time, it was because Windows had completely hosed some video DLLs in both DX9 and my drivers. After hours of trying to fix it, I ended up just counting it as FUBAR and reinstalling Windows from scratch.
thx for the reply guys, the problem happens after i messed around with radlinkers opengl. but after i set everything back to default the artifacts are still there. so i reinstall catalyst and uninstall radlinker which fixed the problem.
sorry about the file size and posting in a wrong topic
Hey I had the exact same problem on my Demo of Far Cry. Like there would be random coloured lines and the textures would go grey. It was, as previously said. FUBAR. Very FUBAR'd....bear in mind, that this was on a...
Pentium III - 800Mhz
nVidia 64Mb GeForce MX440
But sometimes it still played perfectly, on 800x600, all settings low.
