Windows 7: Can't install Far Cry 2

there are many things funny in far cry for example

you hurt getting shot at and you heal yourself by plugging out your teeth? rearrange your arms?

your car broke down and you repair it easy like you sharpened your pencil?

you shooting at your enemy's and suddenly your weapon jammed( sigh)

LMAO

UBI loves to cash in on Franchises that have done very well for them. Unfortunately, they have crapped all over them with junk like this one.

Let's just say that I am going to omit that last sentence and we will continue this conversation

So, I install Far Cry and install those mods and I can play a new campaign or is that something I have to do online?

School me a bit on it if that's not to much to ask?

Well, I didn't totally want to discriminate and dump on the game but... yeah!

Continuing the conversation... It a single player campaign, and no on-line play required. Seriously, they really are great mods. Make sure you read the readme file for install instructions.

Let me know.

sygnus, did you installed the game on Win 7? I also hope I can install on my Win 7 rig, playing it on the win XP rig was a bit tough cause its an old rig.

You can make it easier on yourself if you have a spare connection for the hard drive from the old rig, and either play it from the drive or copy the game's folder over to the new computer. Far Cry is one of those nice programs that only needs to be installed once (I last installed it about 4 years ago on XP), and as long as it is on a separate drive/partition all you need is to make a shortcut on the desktop for it.

No, I haven't installed it on Windows 7, but as stormy said, it's installed on another drive in my system and still works. All you need to do is create a shortcut from the exe.

Hope I (we) answered your question.
