graphics card prob or demo prob?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I ran the demo of far cry on my newely built pc last night. I set everything on high and the game ran smoothly. But the textures didnt look to good. The water didnt look that real on high settings. Sometimes when you move your mouse around the textures change and turn purple. Is this my graphics card not keeping up (hope not), or is it just the fact it is a demo, and the final version of far cry has these probs fixed?

I'm going to say its just something with the demo you got. I have far cry and it ran great on my x850 and on my 9800pro and looked pretty good. Have you tried any other games/demos?

Try a couple others and if they work fine then I wouldn't worry about it.

I remember when I first tried a fresh install of Far Cry with my 6800 I had the same problems with textures and the water had no reflection at all. When I installed the latest patch for Far Cry everything looked fine. Not sure if that problem was ever fixed in the demo. Maybe they have a patch for the demo or maybe a more recent demo or re-release.
