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!

Out of all these Mods for Far Cry 2 that have been made, which one would you all Recommend?

I'd go with Dylan's Realism Mod, compared to all the other "Realism Mods" this one is the most Balanced.

Also you should use the Graphical Enhancement Suite Mod, it Removes that Ugly Brown Filter that makes the Game look like it was pulled out from a Public Toilet and replaces it with a more Naturally Colorful one.

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

To be fair though there wasn't really a huge amount of good games released in 2008, there were gems such as STALKER, Fallout 3, Deadspace, GTAIV, Mass Effect, and The Witcher EE, but other than that not that many which stood out. I liked Far Cry 2 a lot but it was still kind of boring and lacking up to a certain point, there must be a reason why people were not treating it as well as the first Far Cry which differed a lot compared to its detached sequel.

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.

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…
