Discover one of the most beautiful but also most hostile environments in the world, Africa. You are sent to this war-torn region to assassinate the Jackal, a mysterious arms dealer who has rekindled conflict between local warlords, jeopardizing thousands of lives.

In order to fulfill your mission you will have to become a gun for hire, trapped in a war-torn African state stricken with malaria, and forced to make deals with corrupt warlords on both sides of the conflict in order to make this country your home.

Play the warring factions against each other, identify and exploit their weaknesses, and neutralize their superior numbers with surprise, subversion, cunning and, of course, brute force.

After neglecting this page for quite sometime I've decided to clean everything up a bit. The biggest change is that I've moved GES to a newer version of SweetFX. This should allow it to be used on all versions of FC2. (Including the Steam Fortune Edition!) I've removed a bunch of old comments regarding technical issues as they should be fixed. Just make sure you have your game running on DirectX 9.

A common complaint about GES in the past is that the game is too dark with the mod installed. This is due to the nature of FC2 and the method I've used to create this mod. The default brightness, contrast, and gamma settings can look a bit wonky even on properly calibrated monitors. I suggest tweaking these values in-game until you achieve your desired result. Personally I only need to bump gamma up a bit and then everything looks fantastic. However, everybody's results will differ. Just experiment!

I've also re-cut the original trailer which you can view below.

I hope you enjoy the mod and your time spent in colorful Africa!

There is an idea to create Far Cry 2 spin-off, for example, in Leadwerks Game Engine: Youtube.com or as a mod in another game (not Cry Engine). Cross-platform ability is preferred.
Contact me, if you want participate(some skills are highly recommended).
Or just go for LonerStalker's Discord invitation link: Discord.gg

This game has a lot of untapped mod potential due to the lack of a singleplayer editor unlike the first Far Cry, it's such a shame really.

How can i increase buddies health and remove the limit on how many times you can revive them. I have unpacked the game data but i can't find the file which allows me to modify stats of the buddies.

After trying this I have a few things to point out that may need changing.
The M1903 seems to be really inaccurate now, to the point where 2/3 shots were missing a stationary target at maybe 150 yards. The G3 and AK-47 also seem to be really inaccurate past 30-40 yards. The SPAS-12 could use a spread reduction as well, since at anything other than point blank it takes 2 shots + to kill someone . Not sure on the other shotguns however. EDIT Meant to post in the Realmode thread ><

Highest Rated (4 agree) 10/10

Brilliant game from a very good game developer company. If you love open world games, especially FPS games, then this would be something that you will love. This game throws you into a hostile environment and basically anything can kill you; from malaria to hang-glider crashes. You will have to survive by relying on the only few weapons you have that can be by times, not really reliable after all, and as well as your buddies that can bust you out of a firefight when needed. This game is in my opinion…

Lowest Rated (2 agree) 5/10

10/10 for ambiance, story, and the overall message the dev's want to display.

0/10 for that annoying shitty gameplay.

So 5/10.
