Please be sure to read this in its entirety before proceeding to download the Far Cry 64-bit upgrade and exclusive content.
The AMD64 upgrades of Far Cry are meant to run on the final realeased version of the new Windows® XP Professional x64 Edition. If you are running a Beta version of this software, we cannot insure compatibility. To find out more about how to obtain the final operating system, please go to http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/howtobuy/default.mspx.
Please note that the goal of the AMD64 upgrades is to transform the 32-bit version of the game into a 64-bit version of the game to be played on the Windows XP Pro x64 Edition OS. If you would still like to play the 32-bit retail version of the game after installing it on the 64-bit OS, you will need to download the latest 32-bit patches. These can be found on the Ubisoft website at:
Please download and install patch 1.3 and patch 1.31. This should remedy any problems you may have in playing the retail version of the game.
One final note on the 32-bit version. If you have either Handwriting Recognition turned on or if you have more than one input language set on your system, you may not be able to launch the 32-bit version of the game. In order to remedy this, please go to Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options -> from the Languages tab choose the Details button. If you have more than one input language installed or another keyboard layout in the Installed services or the Handwriting Recognition is enabled, please go to the Advanced tab and select “Turn off advanced text services”. After you do this please restart computer to ensure the memory was cleared successfully. Then when you are done playing, please be sure to uncheck this again in order to continue using your other Installed services properly.
To uninstall the 64-bit upgrades, simply re-run the patch executables and it will prompt you to remove the install. In the Exclusive Content upgrade, be sure to choose the correct language.
