Both extreme and authentic widescreen support for FarCry. Ranges from 4:3 up to 48:9 are fully supported! Weapon textures are scaled correctly rather than stretched like vanilla FarCry. Advanced features include floating the HUD to your main screen, or positioning it manually.

Bundles an optional fix for the AI wallhack issue in FarCry 1.4. Bundles optional letterboxing support for play at extreme ratios. Bundles optional (and unaffiliated) SilentPatch. Heck, there's even a binocular bug fix or two thrown in for good measure.

Tight integration with select mods is coming. Starting with the entire Matto series. Everything from weapon scopes to the custom menus, if letterboxing is needed.

Here's a few screenshots.

Here's the P99 from Matto3 at 24:9 before

and after (with HUD floated to 1920 width)

Not much else to add. Should release within a week, and is done with permission. I had a ton of fun just testing these! The need to add widescreen support is not the fault of MattoMedia, the game simply is not intended to be played at widescreen ratios. FarOut Widescreen is still very young, and subject to change/upgrade. The integration package will be updated as the project changes ... adding painless support for new mods along the way. Well that's the plan anyway!

Hmm, could you also potentially implement a quicksave button?

I mainly used a mod called Far Cry Addon Mod for the sake of fixing the AI bug and quicksave during the game (because I’m not hardcore enough to play with only checkpoints). Seems like your mod implements even more features that I care about, like implementing an FOV slider, increased draw distances and SilentPatch being included rather than separate.

Great job!

One more aside, I wonder if you could customize the mod. I customized the FCAM mod so the Desert Eagle is the .50 cal version by simply decreasing the magazine size to 7, max reserve ammo to 140, and increasing damage to 180 (which affects the ones carried by enemies too). It was fairly easy to do in FCAM once I figured which file did what, but would that also be possible in this one?

Oh boy I forgot the first question!

Yes it's easy enough to add a quicksave button. That's not likely to ever be a core feature as authenticity is a big focus.

But it could be an optional feature .. or simply PM'd to interested parties. Please PM me and we can look into options😉

There is. I'll work on that. There's actually two ways that come to mind, but they're a bit involved.

Definitely needed. and will be provided someday!

Glad to see there is still a farCry community. Even new patches being made!

The sort of loyalty the game deserves IMO
