Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)

Well, it did install it on my Win 7 OS but with compatibility, and I have also installed Matto 3 but it does not want to start, meaning, I click on it but it doesn't do anything.

I recall having some mouse/keyboard issues at some point before but I don't recall what I did to fix it and I usually never patch my games since all the patches are ment for MP play and not so much for the Campaign. I guess I should look into this as well.

Now, I did adjusted some video settings manually, like going from 1024 x 768 to my native 1680 x 1050... could that be the problem? You know, like I am clicking on the "Start Button" but it is not really there since I have moved to a different position to what the game requires?

I also installed the Matto 3 on the main directory "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Crytek\Far Cry\ but I remembered that the executable is under the Bin 32 folder... could that also be the prob? Can't you tell that I am jonesing?

Patch it to at least 1.3 and then see if it will run.

You installed it in the right directory. So it should start. When you start Far Cry, go to "Mod" and you should see Matto 3, click it it will restart Far Cry, once done, do your setting and click new game. Should be working. Also do what stormy said about patching.

At any rate we might want to start another thread for this seeing how it's getting away from the original thread - Can't install Far Cry 2

If you guys don't start one, I probabbly will as I have some issues/thoughts I'd like to convey.
