This mod fixes what Ubisoft left unfixed. Dylan's Realism Mod changes Far Cry 2 from an Africa-based sedan and pickup truck simulator into a (semi accurate)
African conflict simulator. Realistic weapon damage, recoil, realistic ammo loads and weapon reliability have been added, along with a more effective stealth suit, and revamped AI weapons. (No more SPAS12s and AR15s for militiamen). Checkpoint AI has been tweaked as well. Checkpoint guards now have a 60% chance to chase you after passing through, as opposed to 90%-100% in vanilla. Militiamen also communicate more frequently in combat, and use suppressing fire more often. However, you are now as vulnerable as the AI. A single burst of rifle fire can kill you, so you are probably going to need that extra ammo and stealth suit.

It's nearing the two year anniversary of this mod, and I'd like to thank everyone who has made it a success. You haven't been forgotten. To quote last year's post, "I'd like to thank the fans of this mod and all of the people who have downloaded, watched, or told others about this mod in the past year for making it a success. ".

I am revisiting Far Cry 2, and there is a new version of the mod in the works. What I'm going to look at changing with Version 1.5 is mainly fine tuning the damage system and modifying enemy voice chatter and stamina. Voice chatter and stamina is simple, I want enemies to talk more and I want the player to be able to run further. Those changes are in testing now. However, the big change for 1.5 will be the damage system. I am considering matching the player's health more closely to the enemy health, and giving enemies a little more of a fighting chance. I'm not going back to vanilla FC2, but instead of them being glass cannons and you being a hardened glass cannon, I'm looking at putting the player on level with the enemy troops health-wise and making them both able to resist a little more fire than Version 1.4. Leg and arm damage has been reduced so that rifles are more useful damage-wise and pistols won't be able to instakill enemies with a single shot to the legs from 100m away. I am also planning for the player's health blocks to regenerate slower and take longer to start regenerating. If you have some comments or ideas for the next version of the mod, feel free to PM me.

Thanks again for two years of Far Cry 2 as it was meant to be played.

Why make this? I have the game on my 360 and it's fine. I don't have far cry 3 and 4 yet since I don't have the money for them yet. This mod would make my game impossible and boring, also not cool at all. It would cause rage quit to players everywhere.

Either you are completely noob or just completely stupid to come here on moddb and spew **** about crappy consoles.
FC2 is a challenging experience, and higher the challenge, the better the fun factor.
This game clearly is not your cup of tea, KID, and does not appeal to casuals like you anyways ... so kindly get lost from here, and test your balls playing the games that you can easily manage to get through without ******** in your pants!

Playing on the 360 is better than on a suckish PC. The PC is slow on high res games and will crash it. On the 360 though, graphics can be held and yeah, epic gameplay.

I don't have a laptop. Anyway, 60 first person shooters? Oh my gosh....and also, it could crash any day. The 360 is epic and useful. It's a HOME console and can let you play with friends NEARBY, not online (unless you want to on xbox live).

At least I can browse the internet for FREE instead of paying more than the entirety of the diamond reserves that I stole combined.

Uh huh ok. Anyways you can play 4 players in the same room on a home system without the game crashing. Plus, you don't have to wait to get the game ready, since on a pc you need to install it.
