Far Cry 1 Graphics

Is there something weird going on or am I mis-remembering Far Cry's graphics? I remember them looking amazing last time I played and when I run it at 2560x1600 with max settings on textures ant anti-aliasing etc it looks pretty bad. Is there some weird problem when running DX9 on a large monitor? (30")

The graphics haven't really aged well. You can try the Far Cry Addon Mod if you want to improve them a bit.

It tends to look alot worse also because Crysis and FarCry 2 look so much better. They really made some impressive strides in graphics over the years.

I think the graphics look fine the way they are.

As far as I know, it's still in development.

When was the last time you played? far cry 1 came out in 2004, and it does indeed look very dated now, at the time it was totally cutting edge.

I agree. The graphics are not state of the art, but so what? IMO, it won't be long before people are saying the same thing about FC2 and Crysis graphics.

My PC is not really designed for gaming; and my graphics card doesn't hold up to processing demands of current state of the art graphics. On the other hand, my PC runs FC1 nicely with all settings on high. Good enough for me. You take what you can get.

FCAM is a great mod. Makes the game far easier on the eyes.
