Far Cry Patch v1.4 Standalone
Author CryTek
Description Features:

Finally we can announce that the "Far Cry Patch 1.4" has been released and is available for download. After a long period of developing and testing the content has been verified and all features have been checked to see if they fit into intended gameplay and work properly. The patch installers are available in two different versions. The 1.4 Stand Alone installer which is 123MB in size and updates your Far Cry version 1.33 to 1.4. And the 1.4 Cumulative installer with 180MB in size that includes the content from all patches ever released and thus updates your Far Cry 1.0/1.1 version to 1.4. Despite the rumors, this patch will be available for Windows 32-bit version only.

The function of the leaked patch 1.4 where people could activate HDR and Anti-Aliasing at the same time on ATI graphic cards has been cut due to engine related reasons.

The patch has been created for multiplayer only, so the single player campaign is not getting affected. In addition to weapon and assault game mode balancing, several new ingame features and new parts of the user interface have been added to ease both server administration and client play. A summary list of the content can be found further below and there will be a detailed feature list included in Far Cry Patch 1.4 documentation.

As a bonus, an independent development team took the six original Assault maps and reworked them; adjusting balance and improving gameplay. These maps will not replace the original ones, but are added to the patch as new versions. We decided to take this step to give players the choice of playing the original maps but also to enjoy the new gameplay feeling.

For all server administrators who want to update their Windows Dedicated Server manually, be sure that you upload only following files from your Patch 1.4 installation:


Bin32 folder (replace all older files with the new ones)
FCData (Scripts.pak)
Levels (mp_jungle, all new mp_px_* maps) note: please delete the entire mp_jungle folder before uploading the new one
