I posted a topic about this earlier

I had exactly the same problem, and tried every single thing under the sun. and I mean everything (too much to list) Eventually I took it back.

After a while I bought Pandora Tomorrow which was doing exactly the same thing, (something to do with shadowing) Mc Timpson did a bit of research and found it would only work with an FX card instead of the MX that I had installed.
I bought a new FX card and the game works brilliant. Far Cry is made by the same company, "Ubisoft" so I wonder if this would have sorted it out.

I note that one of the replies from alwrmc shows he has an FX card in his specs. I tried a Radeon and it would not even think about playing the game. I mite get far cry again after I fish pandora, just to try it.



PS I had mc Afee and even went to the lengths of uninstalling (No Good)
