Farcry 2 Tweakin
« on: 11:51 PM - 10/17/08 »
Anyone going to be getting Farcry 2 and tweaking the M/K?, what are your thoughts as to how this little diamond is gonna run with XIM? Just curious cause i recall reading that the first game wasnt easy to tweak, man i hope this one works well it has similar control scheme as the COD games.

So I'm gonna certainly try hard to get a smooth M/K experience specially for MP. Anyway if there are some peeps round here that are looking into this title, it would be sweet if whoever has success in tweaking it could post a config etc. Cheers!!!!  ;D

Getting it for PC, but I'm hoping the console version's performance with a mouse falls at least somewhere between CoD4 and Halo 3.

I can't wait to pick up Far Cry 2.  I'm still not very good at tweaking my XIM1, but plan on spending alot of time trying to get it as good as possible.  I've noticed some people who have gotten the game early have complained about the controls.

Don't count on that. I played first far cry on 360 and I have to look into it more, but the 360 version appears to have the same feel compared to far cry. I tried to make a config for far cry instincts for the 360 and that was along the lines of battlefield BC, but alot worse. not sure how it will turn out, but I hope it turns out well!

The dunia engine is a new engine, so it may not run into same probs as FC1nstincts. Since your a seasoned tweaker nickstudy, could you post your config that you see being a sweet spot? Would be greatly appreciated!!!

I have plans on this game, I have it but not fired it up ye. I will be doing that on this saturday and I will have it posted then, with at least of a beta rough config of what it's capable. of.

I'm not counting on it, that's why I'm getting it for PC. Right now I'm in the type of mood where my using "hope" or any derivative of the word can be called unrealistic, but unreasonably optimistic works as well.

I posted 3 in progress configs, this game is HARD to config for. If they just made all games like COD 4 controls, the games would be perfect, but this is not the case. See my config for far cry 2, I posted 3 different feeling configs.
