I just got an email from ea saying someone has tried to access my account to change the password, and if i didn't do this to change it now.

that means some f*c*er looked at my e-mail addy from the screenshots
i've posted and tried to hack my ea account.

what the hell, don't you lousy pirates have anything better to do?

that seriously offends me, if whoever you are happen to be reading this;
don't even think about it.

I tried to take very high picture but my drivers stopped working. Seems to happen alot when i'm trying to play at very high shaders. Oh well. I was only getting 5fps anyway.

whatever happend to quad giving that extra performance ? and looking at the graph its bareley using all 4 cores and at that res all 4 cores should be working more.

This is an excellent question. Anyone? Demo not optimized for 4, but the retail will be? :headexplode:

1680x1050 No AA/Very High settings (I refuse to reduce settings as I didn't invest all this money in my computer to play a demo at poor settings!!)

So we preloaders paid for unoptimised demo, everyone else waiting for a month after delay basically will get reamed tomorrow as well. So what exactly was the point of holding on to this slow demo for a month?

I cross my fingers that between now and the actual release that I can play at better frame rates than the demo or else the stock of crytek will plummet in my books. But with rumours of the MP beta improvement in framerates with every release....my hopes are still high.

Obviously not an optomised demo :thumbdwn:


Thanks for the 19x10 shots :) Looks great,but the performance is TRASH no matter the res...WTF ??? and quad support isnt really up to snuff !? :thumbdwn:

yeah, im going to be more careful from now on.

i guess not everyone is trustworthy, or fair. how ridiculous that
people are so low they can't even acquire the demo by LEGIT means.

Changed settings to 1280x1024 seems cpu usage increased as well. Using four cores. However I thought the cpu usage on quad would be a higher percentage. :o

Honestly folks, unless you have an SLI8800GTS and above or some miracle drivers are released you can just forget about Vista and DX10 for a while.

You can get the great performance and amazing visuals in XP with some changes in the config that will give you very high settings (except for the settings that require the D3d10 renderer.)

Oh well. Deep down, we all expected this. Time to mangle the config.

Just sent this email to EA, I have about had it with this stupid demo :thumbdwn:

The demo loads for me now, I get to the main screen and I can access all the game settings and start the game. It gets to a 100% loaded and it gets to the screen where it says August 7,2020 and the game is about to start and then my whole pc shuts down completely. I do not have any hardware overclocked, all my other games run fine, I have paid $50 for this game and this demo, this is not acceptable! If you cannot find a way for this demo to work for me I will cancel my preorder for the Crysis game. Please help me with these issues asap as I have sent you two other technical information questions with no response.

Thank you, Lee Danton

What's the deal with gamers and their masochistic tendancies when it comes to games? If i hear another person try and defend "future proof" when i comes to games i'm gonna puke.

Sure, Crysis looks amazing at the highest detail levels, sure it's probably the best looking game out there atm...but to what end?

Basically all Crytek has done is make a game that will finally be experienced the way it was meant to, in a couple of years. By that time, there will be better looking games and no one with decent hardware will give Crysis a second look.

When i see people "happy" that they see screenshots of 7 fps, i think they must have been dropped on their heads as a child. I'm never happy if a game i buy runs like ****...never, no matter what it looks like. If i want a pretty picture that runs like ass, i'll wait for the next 3DMark.


Here's the thing, by the end of this year Crysis won't be the best looking game you play, based on the settings you have to play it at compared to other games. Two years from now when you finally can play it maxed out, it still won't be the best looking game...so what's the point, really? What's the point of making a game that can't run on current hardware and isn't a game that people will play for years, like an MMOG, which is the only time "future proof" even makes sense?

Looks more like a farcry mod than a whole new game to me. some shots look quite amazing and others look like 2004. Weird.

I'll say that I'm shocked at the performance, considering how nice the unreal 3 engine looked and ran in bioshock. Damn cry 2 engine. heh

Sorry Ontariotl :o , thanks for the pictures :)

No worries. I have to say even with the fraps displaying some piss poor numbers for frames....at 1680x1050 it didn't play too badly. Yeah sure it wasnt 60 frames....but it did avg around 24 for most parts. I guess it is true when Far Cry came out it needed some serious hardware to push those frames up, the same goes for Crysis unfortunately. My hopes are still high for Nov 16th....but for now...I can enjoy a slideshow from time to time.

In a year or two it will run like Far Cry runs on todays CPUs and GPUs.

this really sucks, I looked at those screens for 1024x768 at very high, and the performance still sucked ass for that resolution, so much for optimized demo lol. I dont care what anyone says but at that resolution when your fps is in the 40's it just plain sad.

UT3 with my ultra at 700/1783/2350 averages 100fps at 1920x1200 but it doesnt have the best texture quality which will be available in the final game so lets take away 25frames and I might still be getting avg of 75 but still way better than crysis.

its just the problem with crytek they dont make the best optimized game engines, now I wonder why every one uses UT3 engine, it looks good and performs excellent.

antoher R600 waiting to happen, lol. all hype.

far cry came out nearly 2 years after the 9700 pro and right b4 the next generation of videocards were launching tho. this is 1 year after g80 launched and theres no new high end video cards launching anytime soon. also u guys seem to have bad memories. far cry ran very well on a 9700/9800 pro.

Do you have the newest directx?

I'm going to try it in xp

10-26-07, 02:23 PM
I wasnt comparing it directly to ut3, I even said the the beta demo doesnt have the best graphics, I was saying from the look/performance ration Unreal engine 3 beats any engine hands down. Gears of war for pc for instance has been stated by highly reputable sources like IGN to have breathtaking visuals and performs at very high resolutions with current gen hardware.

I dont care how good the game looks if you are gonna play at 1024x768 and get 40fps with dips to the 20's with very high settings its not worth bragging about by any company. I really think that crytek was probably expecting nvidia to release the next gen at this time, lol, the one that they are probably sitting on.
