If shop bougbht ring their tech support, if its your own build, you have screwed up im afraid. My mate got a x800 pro and farcry looks the bomb.
Its home made, but that shouldn't make a difference. It is definately either a driver or a game problem, for there are a few other people experiencing it.

I fixed it. There is a bug that causes this to happen if the shadows are set to anything above medium on an ATI card...it will be fixed by the patch.

are you using OpenGL or Direct3D?
- as I recall, Farcry was optimised for Nvidia's cards and I don't think it was 'officially' tested on an ATI X800

Direct3D. I turned the shadow detail down to medium and now it is going very smooth. Very immersive and challenging game!

well, when the new drivers come out, the X800's should not have that problem, and they'll most likely be faster

No, they should just make a newer series of drivers. The Catalyst sucks, every driver update barely make any changes and the control panel sucks too.

how about they hire Mac programmers to make new drivers, so they'll be practically error-free

Yeah, that would be a great idea.
