This game kicks ass and looks amazing! Crytek has got it down perfectly! You would have to be a complete moron to not want the full version release of this sweet ass game! After all, the pc gaming market hasn't been hot but now that's all about to change with games like Crysis, UT3 and Gears of War all for PC.
PC gaming will now be worth playing again! :D

Excellent gameplay, very "Farcryish", without the stupid monsters. I hope the Aliens are better. :) Multiple approach types required, guns blazing in approach will not work. I'm very excited about it, can't wait.

Ok, so I put everything to LOW and played about 15 mins. Pretty impressive game so far, although it looks like crap in LOW, but I'll play it again when new optimized drivers as well as the patch are out.

This is the greatest game I ever played!!! :cool:

Too bad today's hardware can't play it descently.

I'll wait till a dual G92 or another high end nV card comes out to play this sweet game.

Its just barely playable @ 1680x1050 @ high @ my system. :D

LOL. I know where my money is going next year...

Edit; how is SLi in this game? Does it work and does it make the game playable with, say, 2 8800GTX cards? If it does i'm going to sell my GTX XXX and pick up 2 8800GT's. LOL!

i got the new nvidia drivers, and i don't get that.

BTW, anyone tried running DX10 on High? instead of Very High? Does it run faster then DX9 High?

Seen my posts? :D

Vista 64 DX10 @ 1280x1024
All settings at Medium except Textures: Very High, Water: Very High = 60fps (nana2)

Which setting has to be set in DX10 to get the sunbeams? That's the only thing I'm not sure if I'm getting right now.

Well the intro videos alone already made me pissed! A person should not have to put up with intro videos to play a damn game. I think I'll be cancelling my preorder for Crysis. It runs like ass. What the hell have they been doing for all these years? This thing is not ready to ship! It needs another 6 to 8 months of optimizing BEFORE release. I'll wait for some new drivers and the patch for the terrible demo. Who the hell is gonna bother playing it at 2 FPS?

Honestly mate you can't be serious, this game has every known advanced effects and features known to date along with the amount of detail they've added to this game it is very well optimised.
The only issue there is that you're trying to play it at too high settings with an underspec'd card and processor.
As for me and many others, we're enjoying it at full detail and high resolution with the intro movies disabled, beautiful.

Jonelo tell me how you do it god damnit!! :cry:

How do you record videos to put up on Stage6!? I've was fighting with Virtual Dub and DivX Converter for 3 full hours yesterday before I finally gave up. Stage6 will only accept DivX format moveis, well Virtual Dub won't encode the DivX 6.7 codec compression, it don't think I recorded in a res that satisfied the restrictions "Width must be a multiple of 4" and "Height must be a multiple of 2", I recorded in the res 1152*864. WTF! :(

Post processing at very high, but it's very performance expensive.. ofcourse ut also looks kickass :afro:

Oh great :thumbdwn: Is there any way to get sunbeams without the crappy motion blur?

Are there already some tweaks for smaller systems? I'm having an AthlonXP 2500 with 2GB RAM and a GeForce6600GT, and the demo sucks even on low settings. I know the system is way too small for excellent graphics, but some advancements must be possible IMHO. Anyone here that can provide me some infos?

Create a system.cfg file with the following command in it and place the file into your Crysis install directory......
r_MotionBlur=0

I'm loving the demo too. Even though I'm running it on a 'mere' X1900XTX ;
1024 x 768 @ about 35 f/ps with shaders & postprocessing at High, the rest at Medium, except for particle fx with i set to Low. DX9 mode of course....

Picking up trashcans and throwing them is pretty fun ; a little bit more fun than HL's gravity gun, since your using your own arms.

I am getting really choppy sound with my SB Audigy 2 ZS, using latest drivers on vista32bit. Any ideas?

Runs fine if i boot into xp and run it though, even stranger.

If you want ONLY the sunshafts then edit the sys_spec_PostProcessing.cfg file (" C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis SP Demo\Game\Config\CVarGroups ") and put (at all the numbers):

r_sunshafts=1

This is my first post, I thought it was about time to register anyhow. I have been playing around with the demo and got some stuff to share. So here is a link to my site I put up for it - http://www.extremeevolutions.com/crysis/crysis_demo_tips.htm

I thought it kinda sucked that you could only use a handful of weapons in the demo so I added a couple into the demo level. So far I've added the rocket launcher and the sniper rifle near the start of the level. I plan on adding some tanks a chopper and even the Alien wepons, the freeze ray and freeze gun. I've uploaded what I have so far to my servers, the links are on the web site The file is about 50 megs because I had to repack the level.pak file. Directions are on the site.

Let me know what you guys think.

Of course there may just be a way to load them in game by using a console command or something but I couldn't find one. If there is let me know then doing it this way is pointless.

Trying the level Pak now, great looking site btw. And thanks for your effort.

EDIT: Demo won't load with the level Pak..too bad, I'd love to try those weapons.

I guess you missed the "PRE-RELEASE DEMO" thing then? The demo isn't of the final build.

What framerates do you guys with big resolution get? Im running 1920x1200, everything on high apart from shadows medium, I get a good 20 fps, sometimes dropping to about 15 when theres a lot of action. I also noticed something weird, I get 19 fps with water on medium, then 23 fps with water on high :S

More pics. I used the tweaked ini file for these. I didn't notice any drop in FPS and as a few other guys have said, the game is much more playable at low FPS than most other games. Like, in this game, 30 fps is butter smooth where as in Oblivion it's :headexplode:

I love the different suit modes as I've handled the same scenarios totally different ways and been challgened in totally different ways.

I think underwater is still what I'm most impressed with but I can't not grin when I realize that I can go to a far edge of the map in the boat to one of those little deserted islands and look back on the main island and still be rocking 30 fps with everything set to high w/very high ini tweaks.

It'll buff out. One thing I was kinda dissapointed about was when I blew up the gas tank of the hummer underwater, I was expecting a huge blast of water to shoot up.. but no.

What are the ini tweaks mate? I want to give them a whirl?
What res are you running on the screens above, im getting about 20fps in dx9 (1920x1200, 8800gtx, x6800)
