Here you go, a patch loader for FarCry 1, so you only need one install. It will dynamically patch FarCry to whatever version you want, no need to waste GBs of with multiple installs and messing about with levels etc etc.
How to install:
Unzip the FCVersions folder into your FarCry folder, so it looks like this:
Create a shortcut on your desktop to: [Drive:]\[Farcry Installation Folder]\FCversions\FCloader.exe
Code: Select all
Running the Loader:
When you run the loader, click the question mark (?) mark and select your Farcry folder (you only need to do this once) like below:
Now, simply click what version you want to run and it will dynamically patch FC to that version and keep it PB and XT kick proof. You will be told when the patch is successful (it only takes about 3-8 seconds) and it will ask you if you want to load FC, which it will do for you. If it is already patched to a version, say 1.33, you can still hit the patch button as it will just load FC 1.33. ie there is no harm in patching a 1.33 install to 1.33. So its a loader and patcher all-in-one.
If you want to know what version its patched to, theres a Currentversion.txt file in the FarCry folder, to indicate what its on. Its not important as the loader will patch anyway before loading FC.
:: No multiple installs needed
:: Fully XT and PB compliant
:: Saves at least 4GB's of space as the app makes FC use the 1 install for all patches
Only reason why this app is 40mb is because 1.33 and 1.4 use a different version of mp_jungle.
:: DotNet2 installed (which you should have anyway)
:: Either version 1.33 or 1.4
