Windows 7: Woes with Far Cry Mods... Matto 3 & 4

I do have all the admin right but that did not do the trick. Now, I usually click on the properties, then on the Advance tab and I tick on the Run as Administrator box and this helps with all my apps and games but I went to Matto 4 advanced tab and I untick it... that seemed to work.

All is well again... go figure!

Well, the installation of Matto 4 ruined my profile of Matto 3 and Far Cry at the same time... I can say for sure whether this happened for something I did, although I doubt it but, I am just stating this here for others to be careful.

Aside from this, when I want to start a new profile and play regular Far Cry (No Mods), the mouse does not move laterally or up & down... great!

I am going to uninstall everything and start again to see if that solves the issue

I don't understand how "Matto 4 ruined my profile of Matto 3 and Far Cry at the same time" Can you explain? Also, did you install the Matto 4 Patch (v1.1) ?

As I stated earlier, I installed Matto 4 without issue. However, because I don't have the 1.4 patch for Far Cry installed, the mod won't run, but.... it hasn't hosed anything else.

If your "profile" got ruined, somehing else is going on, and not neccesarily with the mod itself.

Good luck on the reinstall.

Just want to report that I got Matto 4 workng without the Far Cry 1.4 patch. The initial startup did take forever, in fact I thought the game froze, but I just let it sit and it eventually started. I also reinstall the Matto 4 patch just to make sure it was installed.

Again, I'm playing Far Cry with the 1.3 AMD 64 patch installed so I need to use the 64-bit exe to start the game. Both Matto 3 & 4 work under this config so I'm happy.

Signus, it is hard to explain and I didn't really give it much thought since I had finished playing the matto 4. Well, I assume that once you get to that lab and you have to deal with all those baddies (I hate boss type gameplay btw) you are done. I kept trying but I after a few dies, I decided to call it quits and uninstalled it.

If I started Matto 4 I could see the profile for Far Cry + the Matto 3 profile + the Matto 4 profile but, if I went to far cry and I tried to load the Matto 3 with the profile, I didn't have any saved games for it... same thing for the Far Cry profile, no saved games.

Hey AstaLaVista,

Sorry for getting back to you so late, my system's been down for a couple of days. Been doing some hardware updates. I'm up again, partially.

Uh you lost me here...

Each game is it's own. So if you have a saved game in Far Cry, it doesn't tranfer over to Matto and vice versa. Same thing with profiles. Each game is seperate.

Perhaps i'm misunderstanding you?

Thanks

I created 3 different profiles, thinking that if I didn't I could have the problem of deleting or saving over the other games (FC, Matto 3 & Matto 4). I use a different profile name for each game.

Say I opened Far Cry, once on the main menu you click on Mods to get to Matto 3, I could see the profiles listed there for each game but, of course, I would choose the correct one for Matto 3... same thing would happen if I were to go to Matto 4 control panel and open the game from there.

The problem was that, after playing Matto 4 and quitting the game, I opened up the regular Far Cry game (from the FC icon & not the Matto 4 icon), tried going to the Campaign I had already started, tried to load my last check point but I didn't even had 1 saved game, ditto with trying to go to Mods & Matto 3, no saved games to load... so I assumed that the installation of Matto 4 had something to do with it

Sorry if I am still not making any sense, don't know how else to explain it to you. Bottom line is that I am done with the Mods and I am going over another FC campaign until I find something else to play.

No. Each game has it's own save system; you can't import/tranfer profiles from one game/mod to the next.

Anf FYI, I don't even have a user profile setup, I just use the Default one.

Sorry about your issues.

Good luck.
