i try to play far cry but when the game starts everything is white, and i can not see no colors, only when i get too close to something i can see colors. i have a GeForce FX 5200 128MB, i think its enough but from what i saw from the settings of the game, it does not give the option about openGL it is on Direct3d and it cannot change, does anyone know how can turn that to openGL, or some other way to be able to play the game?

1. go to .../ubisoft/farcry/
2. find system.cfg, open the file with notepad (make sure to have a backup first)
3. ok now find r_driver = "direct3D9"
4. change it to "openGL"
5. save the file and exit
6. run Farcry
running farcry in openGL mode gives some nice boost in fps (at least for me) as well as some graphic glitches, so unless you're experiencing a very low frame rate, do not bother trying openGL.
yeah thats the way to get Far Cry to work in OpenGL mode... but since Far Cry relies on DX for audio acceleration, the sound gets totally screwed up .. a little perfomance increase.... play it in XP 64 bit and watch the game run like u've never seen it before..... smooooooooooooooooooooooth.
I have the exact same card and I use driver version 70.11 or something of that and no patch far cry ( 56k user ) and it ran find. Before I ran it with driver version 51.00 and it messed up a lot, until I switch to the 70 version.
