Farcry 2 Patch v1.03 released

Postby IceT-Bag » Thu Jun 04, 2009 12:14 am

I know hardly anyone here bothers with this epic failure of a MP game, but the latest patch (v1.03) has been released.

Apparently it removes the DVD check, which would mean I could actually play it since my DVD is fubar'd and no longer works. It also has a hardcore mode now, though they still have implemented a working in-game auto-team balance, so no doubt team fudging will still occur.

Anyhow, patch link is here: http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/far_cry_2/far_cry_2_1.03.exe (60mb)

Dedicated Linux SADS here: http://static3.cdn.ubi.com/far_cry_2/Fa ... nux.tar.gz

Most of those sound like console fixes, and the hardcore will be a complete mess since there's bugger all way to tell whose on what team :bad:

Well, think of all the problems with FC2, then look at the file size of the patch thats taken 6 months. :uwhat:

I was expecting much bigger!! (and much more) for that time duration.

From Ubisucks........I expect nothing anymore :~
Yes I'm gonna try the patch, but thats all. I'm sure it's going back in the bin again pretty fast.
That game was in my opinion made for consols only. They should never have sold it as a PC game.
I guess thats the way things are going. Soon PC gamers will be history only :(
