Samohow the Medium looks best to me...

The funny thing is that at Medium the game looks more colorful

In High and Very High the game looks a big foggy

i downloaded it twice and both files have corrupted installation files.. wtf is that? downloaded from EA and nvidia.. anyway know whats the problem?

where did you guys download it?

Wow. 11 threads on Crysis on the front page alone... I think people are going a little overboard.

Performance was terrible for me, High settings, 1280x1024 with no AA and I was seeing about 12fps at best pretty much all the time.

2900xt, 2gb ram, X2 4600+ @ 2.88ghz (the weakest link). But still, 12fps is a shocker. I also noticed that during the entire scene where you discover your teammate hanging from the tree, my teammates' body was all see-through and patchy with triangles. Everything else was fine though... Perhaps these new drivers are causing problems.

Crytek confirms that the game runs better with Nvidia cards

Tons of good links here....

The funny thing is that at Medium the game looks more colorful LIKE IN A OLD GAME

In High and Very High the game looks a big foggy LIKE IN THE REAL WORLD

Let's take a proof, try to see in far away in the morning ( 10.00 am )

NOT building, try to see landscape

So the general gist is 4GB of ram makes a big difference to performance?

10-28-07, 12:39 PM
SLI is not working properly:

"NVIDIA acknowledged that SLI scaling on Crysis was some crippled for the time being. A new driver is going to be released that will help with it, but they are saying that Crytek has a couple of fixes of their own that need to be made for proper multi-GPU performance so again, we might want to wait for the final retail version of the software to really get into the multi-GPU capabilities of the engine."

ok thanx i will give them a try

I'd say definitely, no. Where did you get this notion?

This game is VERY GPU limited.

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.


Dude can you give out the tweaks please!!!!!

yes it does


10-28-07, 12:54 PM
I KNOW its been posted already, but I dont want to sift through 100+ pages of posts:o . What do you type in in console to enable FPS reading?
Thanks :)

r_displayinfo = 1

10-28-07, 12:57 PM
yes it does


This is without AA ;)

been playing around with the editor and the command "e_time_of_day=11" this games amazing :)

Screenshot of the facial editor, so many things you can do.


10-28-07, 01:51 PM
man talk about acne scars :rofl

10-28-07, 01:53 PM
were you using a silencer?

Two in the chest, one in the head is my motto :D

I love that they let you double tap mofos with the pistol :rofl

10-28-07, 01:57 PM
Guys, at what part of the demo were you suppose to drive a boat? :confused:

I saw some pics of driving a boat and I finished the demo without doing that.

10-28-07, 02:10 PM
oh actually i was using silencer the whole way through. Is it much more powerful without?

yes, in real life the projectile is hindered by the silencer so the bullet would not be able to penetrate as well because of its lower velocity. Its a tradeoff, stealth for knockdown power.

you can also use the editor to drop some incendiary ammo for ya, that will take people out quick :lol:

10-28-07, 02:24 PM
Sure, have you installed the editor? If not is should be in the EA\Crysis directory under "Editor".... install it, then go to Bin32(or Bin64) whichever one you are using and launch it from there.

Go to file, load, load the single player lvl... it has to render, will give you some flags and error messages for certain things that couldn't be loaded but that is fine... what you want to do is go and save the file as a backup somewhere else... err.. or the whole directory.

After you do that you can use the panel on the right to drop stuff down. Its pretty simple, choose it from "entities" in the list and find what you want.

Save, then click on "Export to Engine" and you can play it in the demo or you can just hit "CTRL-G" and drop into the game from the editor :)

EDIT: I dropped a couple of chinese helicopters and man that was freaking cool :D

10-28-07, 02:24 PM
OK, just finished it. Damnit, that was so brief :D :( Loved the game. MOstly used invisible + speed to get around guys. I thought the facial animations were almost as good as those in half life 2. Also loved the tranq bullet.
Played about 20-40 fps @ 1440x900 with almost all on high, several on medium.
I didnt quite like the fact it took around 4 bullets or even more into the body to bring the guy down, especially from longer ranges. I understand they want to make the game fun, but some were just rediculous. I think Combine in Ep1 are very good at damage absorbtion being realistic.
Final thoughts: loved and would definetly get it :)

EDIT: DX10 64 bit

Tip #2 Give yourself better stats.!

Browse to default: C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis SP Demo\Game\Config There are several config files. The ones we are interested in is:

diff_easy.cfg, diff_normal.cfg, diff_hard.cfg, diff_bauer.cfg Make a back up of any file before editing.

Open one of the cfg files with wordpad and look for the sections: Player Health/Energy/Suit Change the values to:

g_suitCloakEnergyDrainAdjuster = 0

g_suitRecoilEnergyCost = 0

g_suitSpeedEnergyConsumption = 0

g_suitSpeedMult = 2

g_suitArmorHealthValue = 400.0

g_playerSuitArmorModeHealthRegenTime = 0

g_playerSuitArmorModeHealthRegenTimeMoving = 0

g_playerSuitHealthRegenTime = 0

g_playerSuitHealthRegenTimeMoving = 0

g_playerSuitHealthRegenDelay = 0

g_playerSuitEnergyRechargeTimeArmor = 0

g_playerSuitEnergyRechargeTimeArmorMoving = 0

g_playerSuitEnergyRechargeTime = 0

g_playerSuitEnergyRechargeDelay = 0

g_playerHealthValue = 400.0

Then save the file, load up a new game and see your new power.

Need something like this to NPC :D

Played around with this gent in the editor, and had the RL. very, very eerie. Nicely set up by Crytek. :)

anyone know when the geforce 9 series is coming out

10-28-07, 03:08 PM

Didn't you see my post??!

Let me quote myself:

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! :(
