I successfully installed, loaded and have played the original 2004 Far Cry game on a computer running Vista Home Premium (32Bit).
However, I cannot get the cheats to work. Here is what I have tried:
Devmode (put -Devmode at the end of the shortcut command line and the modified devmode.lua file, which worked under WinXP Pro)
Checked the compatibility options in the shortcut (WinXP SP2, Disable height settings on high DPI, Run as administrator)
The only problem is that my Dad likes Far Cry 1. He wants it on his new computer running Vista Home Premium (32Bit). He is a very casual gamer with no-skill and still needs cheat code trainers to play and enjoy games. He is also a tough customer as to what kind of games he enjoys. He likes simply to pick up a gun and start blasting away.
He does not like games with horror, monsters, space aliens, zombies or anything like that and games of complexity (using too many directional maps, buttons/functions/actions).
-Far Cry 2
-Call of Duty (1-4)
-Delta Force (all)
-Soldier of fortune Payback
Given the background, I need to get the cheats working for Far Cry 1 or else I have no idea about a new game for him to try.
1) Any solid information about how I can get the FC1 cheats working?
2) Any ideas about alternative games?
Thanks ahead of time.
PS. Dual-Boot (Vista/XP) is not an option.
