Guys are you certain that this is the actual demo!? I really find it hard to believe!

100% sure, that it is man.

Tim']Keeps crashing, 64bit doesn't even make it to the EA logo, just hangs, 32bit gets further, but when trying to go in game, it just hangs the whole system and ctrldel doesnt even work.
Same problem here, 32bit seems stable for me though..

64 bit works for me in a window, but it runs like complete crap, has to be worse than 17-20fps, more like under 10, although I didn't check. I haven't ran 32 bit yet, so idk the difference in performance.

edit - 32 bit is the same, I guess I wasn't expecting my fps to stay under 15 the entire time. I guess I know what everyone is complaining about now. I assume <15fps @ 1920x1200, DX10 very high, no aa/af is normal...

First firefight runs around 40 fps in beach village for me - that's XP in DX9 - starting to dip with some stuff going on

Starting to feel some chugging now but playable - guess it's time to stress it in wallpaper mode in DX10 although don't think that'll be playable - at least enjoyably

The 169.01 32bit XP drivers bumped my fps an average 2-3fps, which makes a world of difference when playing at low fps. It feels much smoother now, especially in firefights. Now gonna try the Vista drivers to see if my fps will double. (lee63)

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.

By the end of this year?

You do realize that Crysis is going to be released mid-November, right? That leaves less than 2 months for the rest of the year. Do you honestly think we'll be seeing prettier games by then?

Maybe by mid-to-late next year, sure, but by the end of THIS year? I don't think so, man. No way.

And we've not even gotten to play the snow parts, either, and for all we know they (and even the alien ship) may impress us more than we think.

well crysis on medium settings isnt even the best looking game right now. and someone with an lcd for example, having to play at 1024x768, yeah the game wont look very good even at very high settings

Since it seems to run fine in XP for everyone, can anyone force DX9 in Vista and report back on performance??


Yay for Vista and DX10.

I was running 169.01 in vista 64, so unless 2GB ram is really holding me back, I wouldn't expect much. Maybe I'll try XP now.

Can't you just right click "Play Dx9" or whatever? I know the beta defaulted to dx9 and had the option for dx10 which did not much.

I think that developers of crysis have some sort of new gpu, how could development be possible at so low fps?

yea you can, which actually will force it to run in DX9. I got about a 5-7fps improvement; it was surprisingly semi-playable @ 23 fps.

By the way guys, in BIn32 there is a benchmark utility. I'll put up my results when im done

does anybody know how to enable very high settings in this demo? thanks :D

well its extremely playable for me in xp at everything at 1680x1050 with no AA and everything at high, goes in the forties and under heavy fighting in the 30's. very smooth and playable.

it takes a big hit with AA enabled, probably 35-40% hit, at 1920x1200 I was at 32 while looking around and in the low 20's while heavy action and this is with no AA, so I believe nvidia still needs to do some AA work, the game does look beautiful though, and very smooth. I really dont care about AA thats how good it looks. but I would love to see some more performance improvements.

here is my sig.
q6600 G0 at 3500
evga 8800 ultra superclocked. at 700/1785/2350.

my settings will be 1680x1050 on high with no AA, and very smooth and playable. turning down to 1280x1024 I saw no performance increase, so I believe the drivers are still having performance issues with this game, hopefully we will have a good one when the game releases, just like nvidia did with the bioshock release, the drivers almost doubled the performance.

Bah!

I absolutely think we will see prettier games by the end of the year. GoW alone at max settings will be better looking than Crysis with stuff turned off.

If you are talking what games are capable of looking like, then no, but if you are talking about what they are playable at, of course its gonna happen.


And someone asked me earlier what i think should be done about this, and it's pretty damn simple. A game should be as jawdropping as it possibly can be while still being able to be played at max detail by a top end PC..at the time its released.

I can guarantee you i will have more fun playing a game at GoW quality full blast, than looking at a slideshow that looks slightly better but runs like ass.

it looks beautiful at high, and I think enabling very high is just using dx10 features. and performance takes a big hit.
