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

Woes with Far Cry Mods... Matto 3 & 4

So as not to kill that other thread about FC2, I am starting a new one in hopes that we can get this mods going for this game.

Well, it did installed Far Cry on my Win 7 OS but with compatibility mode, 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?


Thanks to stormy13, I'll try to patch my game when I get home in hopes that it will be compatible with the Matto 3 mods. Matter of Fact I just downloaded the cummulative 1.4 patch from Ubi.

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.


Later.

Peace.
I did all that but I did not play with the settings on the Matto 3 Mod, I guess I should have done so as well? It goes to show how much I know about mods huh!

Anyways, let's hope that stormy's suggestion does the trick.

Ok, installing the patch worked out the problem with the Matto 3 mod. I don't know if my computer is to quick for the mod or what but I could not debrief, it went to a blurry screen with a guy and all of a sudden I was on top of a sub with a inflatable waiting for me.

The zoom is a bit slow to aim down the sights but I do remember the game being that slow as well.

It takes a few bullets to kill the ai and other times 1 shot = 1 kill... go figure.

Now, I still have another question... if I install the Matto 4 mod, do I kill the Matto 3? I ask because I remember a warning me telling me something to the sort and I ended the install right there and then.

Thanks for starting this thread.

FYI Info - I have the Far Cry AMD 64 Patch (1.03) Installed on the game. This allows the game to be played in a 64—bit environment, originally designed for XP-64 but will play under Vista/W7 64.

Also, I’ve found that if I try to install the 1.04 patch on top, the game will either crash or has strange graphical anomalies like missing textures.

At any rate for me to play the game, I have to use the game’s 64-bit exe from the Bin 64 folder, the 32-bit exe goes into "not responding" mode and you have to Ctrl + Alt + Delete out.

So, If I want to play the game, including Matto 3, I have to use the 46-bit exe. No problem….

Well….Matto 4 is a different story. It requires the 1.04 patch to be installed or it won’t run, regardless of either executable file used, including its own desktop shortcut.

So, two trains of thought here….
1- Don’t use the AMD 64 patch and just patch up to the latest patch (1.04)
2- Patch up to 1.02, than install the AMD 64 patch that’s it.

Installing the 1.04 patch on top of the AMD 64 patch will cause problems (at least it did for me). However some mods, Matto 4, require 1.04 to be installed.

What's the big deal about the AMD 64 patch…. Performance & image enhancements

BTW there’s also the Far Cry AMD 64 Exclusive Content Add-on package.

So… Has anyone been able to install the 1.04 patch along with the AMD 64 patch? How?

Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean, but you can install Matto 4 without issue. Also, FYI, Matto 4 will create it's own desktop shortcut. So you can go directly from there, unlike Matto 3.

And yes, expect some bugs; You're playing on a 64-bit new OS

Thanks for taking the initiative to start a new thread, sygnus21 That was veering a bit off topic ...

That is tre cool, didn't know this thing came on 64 bit...

OK, now that we got that out of the way, wasup with those of us that are on Intel Chipsets? what do we do if we want to play on 64 bit? even though, at this juncture, I don't want to jinx or screw anything since I got the game working for me.

I assume here that installing the 1.04 patch after installing the Far Cry AMD 64 patch is a No-No?
Did you try this in reverse by any chance?

Again, this is good news but I rather not go through this hassle now that I got the game working.

I gotta try the installation again then, I might have misread something... most usual for me

All this AMD this and AMD that has me baffled to say the least but I expect you'll explain further as I doubt they kicked the intel chips to the curve.

I'll try again then to see what's what.

Bugs are expected when playing old games like this with new hardware but again, what am I supposed to do in that mission of Matto 3, the guy didn't say anything.

I do love the fact that this is a true open world, you can go to any side of the island and the game will go on from there, unlike other said open world games, wich btw, we won't mentioned any names but it rhymes with Far Cry 2 but w/o knowing what the objectives are, it is a bit of a downer.

So, hook a brutha up and tell me what is my mission in Matto 3?

Oh and I love the rendering of that pistol with the silencer and scope, although, I would have had preferred the suppressor on the M16.

Oh and... +1 on the whole threadjacking... that was my bad.

Though the patch was released in 2005 for AMD 64-chips under Windows XP 64, quite a few people have used it on intel chips witout issue.

How "well" does it work in relation to a 64-bit AMD chip I can't say, but I can say I've used it on my Intel based system under Vista 64 without issue (other than the graphical anomalies when installing the 1.04 patch on top of it).

Yes tried both ways.

Again, old patch, works with Intel chips

I think the last time I played both Matto 3&4 was about 3-4 years ago, on XP since Vista wasn't even in beta form yet, so I wouldn't remember for the life of me. Sorry.

In fact one of the reasons I want to get Far Cry set up again is so I can play those mods again.

As for the thread hijacking thing it happens, we all do it sometimes, including me. I just make a conscious effort not to do it. It's easy to get sidetracked. NP
Hope I've answered your questions

Back to killing baddies I go then...

Well, in Matto 3 that is as I can't make Matto 4 to work.

I did installed it in the Main directory as asked. I have given it Admin rights as well but I have a funny feeling that I still need to elevate the bat file to even higher admin rights but I don't know or remember how to do that... any takers?

I mean, I double click on it (Matto 4 icon on the desktop), the admin rights pop up, I give it the ole OK click, I see the command prompt window pop for a few secs and then it disappears again very quick.
