I almost posted this in SOFTWARE but I thought more gamers would see it here.
Far Cry 64 bit version
Did you know Far Cry came in a 64 bit version? Yep! It has Enhanced Graphics and other addons the 32 bit version does not have!
There is a patch that upgrades the 32 bit version to the 64 bit version!
You can download it here: Patches and Fixes: Far Cry AMD 64 US/UK Patch - Demo Movie Patch Download Section - GamersHell.com
This was made for XP AMD 64 bit. BUT...
I don't have an AMD processor and it works Great on my Windows 7 64 bit with my old Intel processor so it should work on any 64 bit capable chipset. I think this is because all 64 bit architecture is based on the AMD chipset and most companies chips use this or are compatible with it.. It won't hurt to try!
This is from the AMD website (the website has comparison screenshots!): Far Cry® and AMD64
"The AMD64 version of Far Cry is now available for the new Windows® XP Professional x64 Edition operating system. The AMD64 version is an upgrade that installs on top of the retail, boxed version and gives you an enhanced Far Cry experience. The free AMD64 upgrade supports both single- and multi-player modes. With an AMD64 processor and the new Windows® XP Pro x64 operating system, you can now enjoy Far Cry with additional content, higher frame rates, enhanced textures, longer view distances, and more objects with real-time physics. Take a look at the images below to see these improvements for yourself. Then, click the link to the right to download the 64-bit upgrade to experience 64-bit Far Cry on your PC. To find out more about the new Windows® 64-bit OS, please click here.
Improvements to the 32-bit Game
The full impact of the AMD64 version of the game can only be seen by playing the game yourself. Below, you’ll find screen shots that give you a small taste of what you will see when you experience the game first hand. Or, check out the video highlighting these differences. Then, get the AMD64 upgrade and go back to the jungle for a renewed adventure. If you don’t own an AMD64 processor, follow the Where to buy link, and get in on the best gaming experience."
* You Must have a copy of Far Cry to use this. It is only a patch, not the game itself!
I recommend you have the latest 1.4 patch for the 32 bit version installed before you install this patch just to be sure you have everything up to date.
It's like playing a whole new Far Cry!

NOTE: Now that I have edited this post with enough content for both 64 bit and 32 bit Windows 7 systems I would like the title of the thread renamed. Can a mod do this for me please? You can rename it, "FarCry 64 bit Free Upgrade + FarCry Meets Crysis for 32"
