It was hard enuff to get one demo out... i really doubt they'd have 2 versions!

They did say they had a surprise for us, other than the sandbox editor...one can hope...

I very sorry to read that. Guess this is one of those games you have to wait a year after it's released to play it how it was intended. Very sad indeed.

Yeah true,

but... there's lots of pc stuff this winter to play, and i will enjoy playing thru this in XP for sure, and next year can do again at max after next upgrade. All in all not too bad but i definitely had hoped my rig was enuff to max anything for 2 years. It'll almost make it :)

Some solution for the AF ? . In Vista does not seem that the AF works

Anyone know how to turn off that annoying motion blur in the Vista version?

Cheers..

Ouch. Tried 1680x with everything set to "very high" and on in Vista.

I've see 35FPS staring at the ground, and 45 getting close to rocks to stare at them :rolleyes: I like the game and I can't play a shooter of its sort at the current FPS I am getting. I imagine indoors is much better. Outdoors running around through grass and fighting guys is way too sluggish due to low FPS. Guess I will drop down a res level and try again.

The x64 version freezes when I try to load it. Got the demo off of Nzone.

The more DX10 games I try the more I wish I had kept that old 1280x monitor of mine. Looks like a GTX + 1280x combo isn't as "dumb" as some critics have suggested, particularly when talking DX10. Hopefully the next flagship will make 1680x like 1280x. I know I am staying parked at this res for a while.

I haven't even tried to apply filtering yet. :p

Wow, was that in dx10 mode? If so it seemed to play pretty fast.

Is there a lack of Gore then? Damn Crytek.

DX9 runs fine @ 1680x.

That rock I was talking about in my other post. I get 62FPS in front of it in Vista using the DX9 path, and 45FPS using DX 10. 9 = all high, 10 = all very high. You can't select "very high" on the DX 9 path.

Moving to the 9 path is a big performance boost.

Ok, to all you config junkies out there..

Let's try and tweak this thing.

As far as I can see - DX9 on XP seems to be the way to go so far (and I'm running 4gig DDR2, o/c 8800 Ultra and an o/c Q6600.)

The adapted config seems to add some more eyecandy - here it is again for those that missed it.

(Remember - you have to keep adding it, as Crysis will delete it from your config file once you reload the game..)

Now I haven't got a frigging CLUE as to what most of this stuff does, but it does seem to have made it closer to my buggy as hell DX10 version - which runs like a dog unless you go medium on shaders and, unfortunately, lower the post processing to medium or high - which kills of all the great godrays.

If anyone's got any genius tweaky thoughts, I've started a new thread on this board called CRYSIS SP TWEAKING. I reckon we stick all the ideas in there 'cos they'll get lost in here.

Anyone want to buy my 8800gts? It's a great future proof card, able to play the latest and greatest flash games. Low low price.

I'll buy Crysis just to support Crytek. They could of spent their time on a console game and made much more money. It's just nice to see a company making a PC only title.

I don't know why people are surprised about bad performance on Very High. They clearly said that this generation of hardware wouldn't be able to totally max out Crysis.

So, now we have a new benchmark :)

Anyway, this proves that DX10 was all hype. I feel like such a sucker for thinking DX10 was going to be so great. Remember all those screenshots?

FSX? A stupid picture of mountains and lake? Allen Wake? Conan? Crysis? Remember micro analyzing the graphical differences between dx9 and dx10 screenshots?

What fools they made of us. :captnkill: made fools of us

Ok, I officially love this game.


Ditto !! Loved the SP Demo,and cannot wait to play the full game !! Yes the current performance is terrible maxed,but now that I have seen and played the game my opinion has changed.I will eat crow now and again admit I was a little wrong :o :D

Of course performance may tank even more with the full game in larger and even more detailed levels.


I really do hope that Nvidia comes out with something faster then the GT as that wont cut the mustard with my 24" Nec as is.My Ultra for the first
time got a real workout.93c by demo's end !! This at 612/1760/2250

Wow, I'm really impressed with the SP! Here was my performance:

1024x768
Min: 20
Max: 40
Avg: 32

I'll have to wait until the morning to play around with the Sandbox editor. Graphics aren't that bad but they could be better (I know, my GFX card isn't the best).

Don't forget to kill the guy driving the boat too :D. Quite pleased with the demo, I'm still on a lowly 7950GT, so I had most everything on low (a few settings like effects, textures, postprocessing and such on high) but the game ran smoothly and still looked great IMO. At first I thought I was just playing Far Cry again, but once I really started making use of the suit the game really opened up. Using the cloak and max speed to slowly, silently kill a group of enemies one by one really gives you that "Predator" feel lol. Can't wait til I get an 8800GT and can turn things up a bit.

Yeah...I tried the same...No Dice...I did have a blast with the demo...I played on Very High (DX10) and I DIDN'T RUN FRAPS...LOL..I didn't want to see how bad it was...Bottom line at 1440x900 it played at ok framerates (for me) except during really intense fire fights or 3 or 4 on one boxing matches...I think I'll play it again tomorrow on just high and see how it goes (specs in sig)...

64-bit version works fine here. Right clicking Crysis in the Games Explorer and choosing DX9 or DX10 works - because in DX9 the Very High option is greyed out, in DX10 it isnt.

DX10 gives shocking mouse lag... DX9 has no mouse lag. It was exactly the same in Lost Planet until a more recent driver in 163.xx which fixed it - so it is likely the mouse lag is a driver problem.
