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.
Add color to name
Enter one of 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.
- Black: $0
- White: $1
- Blue: $2
- Green: $3
- Red: $4
- Light Blue: $5
- Yellow: $6
- Pink: $7
- Orange: $8
- Gray: $9
Change profile name and keep saved files
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 <name>_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 <name>_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, <desired name>_game.cfg. In the same screen
copy file <name>_system.cfg and paste in same screen.
Rename the file to desired name following this format, <desired
name>_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.
Get different weapons
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file;
create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. 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("<weapon
name>");". 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 ammunition for that weapon.
Demo version: Cheat mode
Press ~ during game play to display the console window. Press [Tab] to cycle through the available cheat options.
Demo version: No damage
Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "gamerules.lua" file in the "/farcrydemo/scripts/default" folder. Find the following line.
"ai_to_player_damage = 1, 1, 1, 0.5, 0.5, 0.5"
and change it to:
:"ai_to_player_damage = 0, 0, 0, 0.0, 0.0, 0.0"
Volcano: Defeating the mercenaries
At the end of the last 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. Then, 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.
Park a buggy in an unsafe location (for example, on a flight of stairs in the Fort level). Eventually a pig will 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.
