    First at all visit the official webpage of LR and Download the Installer https://farcrylraddon.de/installation/
    Once downloaded open up the Zip file and start up the Installer Exe.


    Once startet up, just click "Next"


    Read the information below about the LRv2 Extension and click "Next"


    Read the license agreement, and chosse “I agree with the above terms and conditions” in case you accept them. Otherwise chosse “I do not agree” to cancel the installation.


    Select the path to your FarCry Directory and click “Next” to finalize the installation.
    For CD/DVD FarCry Players it used to be: C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Crytek\Far Cry (or FarCry without Space)
    For Steam Players it used to be: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Far Cry (or FarCry without Space)


    Review your chossen path where to install LRv2, and click “Start” to make the installation.


    Once the Installation is done. You got the LR-Launcher already launched. Otherwise just start it up using the new Icon you got on your Desktop.


    The LR-Launcher
    The LR-Launcher got a few usefull things to make it easier with FarCry to switch between LR and FarCry Patch 1.4


    On first running, you need to set the following stuff to configure it. To do that go to your Windows Notification Bar, and do right click onto the LR-Logo.


    Now go straight to the Settings part of the Launcher and configure a few stuff.
    (You can put your Ubisoft login data to it, which allows you to be automatically logged in into Ubisoft when starting the game through the Launcher.)


    Now just go to "Game Patch" and click "Select" and chosse your FarCry Path, than click "OK".


    Now just go back to your Windows Notification Bar, do right click on the LR Icon and go "Play", now you can choose between Normal FarCry or launching FarCry using the LR Extension V2.


    Remember: If you got any errors, issues, etc. than feel free to take a look into the F.A.Q. forum, maybe yoour problem is already known and you can get the fix from there. (https://forum.farcrylraddon.de/viewforum.php?f=7)


    That's it, now just start up your Game and start Playing FarCry!
    Have Fun!


    Your LR-Team :knot:


    This problem is sometimes a Registry Problem! For Fix that please do the next Steps…
    (Fix tested on Windows 7 and 10)
    Step 1: Open up your start menu and in the search bar type “REGEDIT” and you should be presented with REGEDIT(.EXE) under the heading Programs. Click it to open it.


    Step 2: With the registry open you will see several folders that are variations of the name HKEY_. The one we are looking for is “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE”. Once you’ve found that one click the little arrow to expand it.

    In the new list of folders find a folder called “SOFTWARE” and expand it again by hitting the little arrow.

    Finally also expand the “WOW6432Node” folder.


    Please Note: This next step is just like creating a folder in your Documents. Pay particular attention to the capitals and spacing in the new folders we are creating, it won’t work otherwise.


    Step 3: Right click the folder “WOW6432Node” and click NEW > KEY and name the folder/key “Crytek”. Once this Crytek folder is created right click it and select NEW > KEY and name this new folder/key “FarCry”. After doing this right click the new folder FarCry and select NEW > KEY and call this new folder “Ubi.com”.


    Step 4: Load up your FarCry, enter the CD key and that’s it! ;)


    In case you are a Steam users, and you are launching FarCry though Steam, than just use the following Fix:
    1. Close your FarCry and Steam.
    2. Right click on the Steam.exe -> Properties -> Compatibility Mode.
    3. Tick the "Run this program as Administrator" box and click "Ok".
    Now just Run Steam, and than launch FarCry. Normaly it should be fixed now.
    Otherwise, just do the same on the FarCry.exe

    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. ;)
