Far Cry Mod Installer



More pictures


Mod Installer (MI) is a program for easy installing mods to Far Cry games. MI uses mods which are called packages (extensions a2, a3, a4, a5). Using MI you can install those packages into the game.


Guide and step by step you can find here.

In the FAQ section there are more guides, so please go there.

If you're modder, please go to Others section and look there for Mod Installer Documentation where is described the package system and ways how to make them.


Background videos for FC4 and Primal Mod Installer

Every Mod Installer contains animated background where is played video. This video is taken directly from game files. But Far Cry 4 and Far Cry Primal doesn't have the background as video so Mod Installer can't use them.

That's why there is an optional download item with those backgrounds created for Mod Installer. This optional item isn't in main MI download item by default.

If you download it, unzip it directly to folder where is DuniaModInstaller.exe file.

For better understanding, look at this picture:

Note: the Linux version of Mod Installer doesn't support background videos, so you don't have to download it.
