Can I play FarCry with LRv2 on Windows 7-10 (64bit)?
Yes, although it’s an old game, FarCry can be played on Win7, Win8 and Win10 (64bit).
However you should give it grant admin rights! To prevent cdkey errors, sometimes it’s necessary to turn compatibily mode on for Win7/8/10 aswell!
The LR-Launcher needs Microsoft .NET Framework.
How to play?
To play FarCry Multiplayer, you just need to install our FarCry Multiplayer Extension LRv2 to your FarCry. After the install, just load up the “LR-Launcher”, set the Path to the FarCry folder you installed LRv2, and than just go to “Play” -> “LR Extension v2”. The game will load up after that 🙂
How do I connect onto the Servers?
After Launching your FarCry Game over the “LR-Launcher”, just go to “Multiplayer” -> “Internet (LR)”, and than just join onto one of the available servers 🙂
I got “Your FCData directory isn’t okay. Maybe this could be the result…”
There are some additional files in your FCData folder that shouldn’t be there. In case that they could be the result of some problems ingame, etc. It would be better to remove them, to keep your game well working. 😉
Compare your FCData folder with this screenshot and delete or move all files that you don’t see here:
I got “Your FCData File Size isn’t okay. Maybe this could be the result…”
Some of your files don’t have the original FarCry installation size. In this case please take a look to the sizes of your FCData files, and compare them with the image below. 😉
In the following list you can see the right filesize of each file. In case a filesize doesn’t match with the one listed here, you could re-install FarCry or ask somebody to send you the right file 😉
In case you got the FarCry CD/DVD the problem might be that you have wrong patched.
Once you got installed FarCry, check out which Patch you got, it could be Patch 1.0 or Patch 1.1. In case you got Patch 1.0, you need to patch up first to Patch 1.1 and than using the FarCry Comulative Installer, patch up to Patch 1.40. Than this error is fixed.
I got “Your Bin32 directory isn’t okay. Maybe this could be the result…”
There are some additional files in your Bin32 folder that shouldn’t be there. In case that they could be the result of some problems ingame, etc. It would be better to remove them, to keep your game well working. 😉
Compare your Bin32 folder with this screenshot and delete or move all files that you don’t see here:

I got “Please, don’t play with a ‘…..’ in your FarCry Directory!”
The Following Error just informs you about that you shouldn’t play with a specific file/directory in your FarCry Directory in this case marked as ‘…..’, which could be any named file/directory.
Here an Example of dissalowed File when playing FarCry Multiplayer:
To Fix that Error, just delete the named file/directory in ” from your FarCry Directory. Than Relaunch your FarCry Game and the error might be fixed. 😉
Graphic options turn custom when playing on LRv2 Servers
Many settings can’t be altered and are set on the same value for all players. Many graphic settings are set on a fix value which dissalows that a player could get an advantage to the other players. The settings are mostly set by the Gameserver.
I got the message “Can’t find a map cfg for this map! Please contact…”
This error means, that the map you are looking for, is currently unknown… Please contact the contact the server admin. 😉
I got the message “No Level Dir made! Map Download was interrupted…”
The following error means that FarCry hasn’t enough rights on your Computer to create the needed directories in the “Levels/” folder, where it has to save the map. To fix that, try to launch your game with “Administration” rights. Todo that, go to your FarCry directory, go to “Bin32/” folder, make right click on “FarCry.exe” -> “Properties” -> “Compatibility” -> Tick the Box “Run this program as an administrator” -> Hit “OK”. Now start your game again and try.
I got the message “@Kicked – Duplicated LR GUID!”
The duplicated LR GUID error means that somebody else is currently playing on the same server with your LR-Key. If you haven’t shared your game directory with anybody else, than this error can also be caused when you crashed during the game, and you are trying to reconnect onto the same server. That would mean, you need to wait arround 5 minutes until your LR-Key gets kicked out from the server and you are able to reconnect onto that game server.
I got the message “@Kicked CVAR VIOLATION [VARIABLE] = [VALUE] ([VALUE] required)”
This happens when changing game variables which are fixed by the server. This error often happens when changing graphic settings while you’re ingame. Since many graphic settings are fixed by the game server when connecting, you shouldn’t change them, otherwise the server might kick you, with the reason that some light, shadow or texture variables aren’t on the right value according to the allowed ones of the server.

Sad but, this is part of the game. There is currently no solution for this CryEngine error.
