Use the following trick to get all your saved data transferred to a new folder with whatever name desired. Locate and enter the "\ubisoft\crytek\far cry\profiles\player" folder. This will take you to the profiles found in the game. Find the folder that contains the name that you want to change, and open it. Highlight items inside, including folder, game.cfg file and _profile_placeholder.txt text document. Copy those items and go back to the previous folder. In this screen, right click in an empty area of the screen, highlight "New" and click "Folder" (or use the File/New/Folder menu command). This will create a new folder. Rename the folder to your desired name. Open the new folder and paste the files previously copied. Go back to the previous screen. Copy File _game.cfg and paste in the same screen, then rename the file you just pasted on the screen. Note: Make sure the filename has the same capitalization as the folder you renamed earlier. The file must be in following format, _game.cfg. In the same screen copy file _system.cfg and paste in same screen. Rename the file to desired name following this format, _system.cfg. Make sure the letters .cfg file extension is included, including the period. Do not erase anything. Play game and make sure it works.
Toward the end of the final level, if you are having problems with the final group of mercs protecting Doyle at the top of the stabilizer, the following is an easy way to deal with them. Slowly approach the ramp until you hear the radio chatter confirming they have spawned in above you. After that, back off and look up for the large fuel tanks. You cannot see them, but the mercs are gathered around and behind these tanks. Scatter throw all of your grenades at the tanks. You should have killed or wounded almost all of the mercs, leaving just one or two to deal with upstairs.
Press ~ to display the console window, then activate the following cheats by entering the corresponding codes:
CHEAT FUNCTION - CHEAT CODE God mode - god_mode_count=1 All weapons - give_all_weapons=1 Ammunition - give_all_ammo=1 Debug mode - \ca_Debug=1 Disable AI - \ai_noupdate=1 Load indicated map - \map Toggle unlimited CryVision - \r_Cryvision <0 or 1> Quick save game at this point - \save_game Load quick save - \load_game
Before BACKSPACE will toggle God mode, open the "devmode.lua" file with a text editor. Scroll to the very bottom, and paste the following if it is not present:
function ToggleGod() if (not god) then god=1; else god=1-god; end if (god==1) then System:LogToConsole("God-Mode ON"); else System:LogToConsole("God-Mode OFF"); end end Input:BindCommandToKey("#ToggleGod()","backspace",1);
BACKSPACE should now work. When God mode is enabled, the number next to the God command in the upper right hand side of the screen tells you how many times you "actually" died, meaning how many times your health reached 0.
Park a buggy in an unsafe location (for example, on a flight of stairs in the Fort level). A pig will eventually get in and drive the buggy and park it back on the road. Note: The pig will run you over if you are in the way.
Note: You must first download and install the file to unlock developer mode. Start the game with the -DEVMODE command line parameter, then activate the following cheats by pressing the corresponding keys. Note: When in developer mode, all levels will also be unlocked:
CHEAT FUNCTION - KEY Spawn point - F3 All weapons - P 999 ammunition - O Toggle no clipping - F4 Move to next checkpoint - F2 Save current position - F9 Load current position - F10 Toggle extra information - F11 Toggle first and third person view - F1 Toggle God mode - BACKSPACE Increase speed - "=" Decrease speed - "-" Return to default speed - F5
Note: This procedure requires editing a game file; creating a backup copy of the file before proceeding is recommended. If you have downloaded the enabled devmode file, open the "devmode.lua" file with a text editor. Look for a line that reads "function AllWeapons()". Underneath it there are lines that read "AddWeapon("");". For example, to get the mutant shotgun edit a line so it says AddWeapon("MutantShotgun");. Note: If you put a weapon that you normally cannot get in the game you will not be able to see it when you pull it up but, you still can shoot it . (Screenshot 1) (Screenshot 2). You may need to use the "999 ammunition" code for ammo for that weapon.
Enter the following color codes when entering a name at the character selection screen. The letter(s) that follow that code will be displayed in the corresponding color. You can use multiple color codes in your name, if desired.
