Vista + FarCry

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
When playing farcry on vista, the ground around the vehicles is black. There is a large black circle on the ground around cars and helicopters. Is this a problem with vista and is there something I can download to fix this?

That seems like a driver issue. Most probably the shaders. Is that the only thing that happens? Or there are more?

Do I have to install all the patches, or just the most recent?
I am using 64bit

I had the exact same issue. Just get the latest patch (1.41 or something like tha) and it should work perfectly. I'm about 3 hours into it with no errors.
