Can i ask you people something? The HDR settings in High is 2 and the EdgeAA is set to 1. Which are the settings for those settings in Very High settings? HDR = 3 and EdgeAA = 2 ?

Very High settings use 2 for HDR and 1 for EdgeAA.

lets face it
we need graphics cards that are 5 times faster to be able to play crysis maxed out at high res.
im out of here maybe i pick up crysis in 2 years lol
who want to play crysis at medium settings when you can have this,not me

DX10 very high 4xAA 1600*1200 downscaled to 1024*768

This game is pretty impressive. I just started playing the demo in dx10, and I drove a truck on a rock that forms kind of a ramp, and landed on some kind of shed and crushed it.

Something that made me rofl though is how if a tree even gently falls on your truck, it will explode into a giant firestorm blowing you up with it. They ought to rethink that.

I thought that is one of the best screenshots I've ever taken in the Crysis Demo. It's just everything from the lightning/colors to the drama and cool cinematic feel to little detail like the motion blur on the alien's arm. It's taken in 1680*1050 DX10 @ very high settings noAA and it's from my Crysis graphics analysis project (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=101345). I love it :D

Here's a downsized version for smaller monitors:

Ok. What is this "Ultra High" setting I just heard about. What do you have to tweak to get settings to Ultra High?

if you install crysis under vista do you get dx10 as defualt?
i dont know if it is dx9 or dx10 im running :)

one thing is sure
performance sucks with a Ultra at very high no AA.
around 30fps at 1024*768

so damn nice isnt the graphics.
must be crappy optimizing

Don't know what you're doing with your system but for such an advanced game it's extremely well optimized.
I'm running it with an 8800 Ultra also and am getting an average of 28fps @ 1920x1200 resolution in Vista with all settings on very high except for Motion Blur which is off.

Some settings allow you to go beyond Very High:

A few that I'm using:

e_water_ocean_soft_particles = 1
e_detail_materials_view_dist_xy = 4096
e_vegetation_sprites_distance_ratio = 1.5
e_view_dist_ratio_vegetation = 50
e_shadows_max_texture_size=2048

I did it at some point, then I deleted my autoexec, so I forgot what the disable motionblur command is.. can you help me out here? :)

I'm pretty anxious to test if the motionblur is in fact the sinner for the horrible mouselag in DX10 because it suddenly stroke me that in the Jericho demo I think played without motionblur because I thought the mouse dragging behind eg. was lagging when I enabled motion blur. So I'd really like to test it and also see how it affects performance.

Anyway I'm off to bed now, it's way late in Denmark, but I'm hoping to try it tomorrow :)

Just a quick question, is the full game going to have something harder than the hardest setting in the demo?
I just beat it a few times today on the hardest setting (no reticle/grenade warning/korean langaue) and it is literally the BEST game I have EVER played..
I cannot freaking WAIT for this game to come out!

Now just to tweak it with custom .ini's

Gaco

Thanks.. wait if you play without motionblur in DX10 can you tell me with any certaincy how the mouselag is comparatively?

And NOW I'm off to bed! Freakin 5:20 am :(

For me the game looks better in dx9 than dx10. The palm leaves look bolder in dx10...to bold. I don't know.

Ok so the trucks are uber weak and the helicopters are uber powerful :D

IRL trucks don't blow up if trees fall on them, and helicopters fall out of the sky if they clip trees :D

For some reason Fraps isn't taking any screensots. I press F10 and it takes the picture but there isn't anything in the folder. Has anyone else had this happen. I'm using 2.92 beta version in Vista 32bit.

no i was telling everyone :)

but that was in DX9 that you where running?
or DX10 with shaders on high?

its easy to take screenshots when the gameplay is showing a few screenshots every second ;)

My point really was that it is absolutely amazing that the game engine was able to give me an image like that which looks so thoroughly pre-rendered regardless of the FPS being crappy ;)

I'm running benchmarks at 1680X1050 with all graphics set to very high with a few of the settings tweaked up to ultra high settings, no AA and no motion blur and benchmark a solid 30 fps. And at 30 fps, this game is extremely playable and smooth and never slows down in the firefights.

It's not until you start cranking up all the little detail effects like how far the engine will draw plant wind effects and per pixel rendering on the waves and stuff like that when you'd see a noticable performance hit.

Two ultras would be able to run this game at full ultra high settings like a champ. (although I still doubt it'd be able to do any anti aliasing with said ultra details).

The day a video card comes along and can run crysis at over 1280X1024 with full AA @ very high graphics settings is the day the 8800 ultra is obsolete.

Love it. I will definitely be picking this game up.
