FIX: Far Cry: mouse not working in Vista

Problem: When you install "Far Cry 1.4" in Vista, the mouse works in the menus but does not work in-game.

Fix: At the main menu, go to Options -> Control Options.
Select Default -> Yes.
Go back to the main menu and exit "Far Cry."
Restart "Far Cry."

(Look for this and other fixes over at VistaGameDoctor.com.)

Thank you very much, Sir.

Terrific! Thanks so much! Note that you can still go back and set your own control preferences after your initial choice of "default" gets your mouse working. Wonder why they haven't fixed this setup problem in a patch?
