Crysis and Start Menu....
 
After install - the game and it's folder are not in the Start Menu. I have to navigate to the folder manually, which isn't a big deal but seems odd.

Also - how do you choose between DX 9 and DX 10? Since there is no entry in Start Menu - I'm not sure what I am missing in the way of shortcuts, espcially for configuring the game.

Thanks!

If you right click on the icon in the games folder, it will give you options of DX9 or 10. Or you can add "-DX9" to the target path of a shortcut, otherwise it defaults to DX10.

by default the game is only in the start>games folder on vista.

I've already seen a few forums on other gaming boards where people couldn't "find" it after it installed

Got it. Thanks.

Some games are still placed in the old way on the Start Menu and some are not.

As far as I know, the "Games For Windows" label now requires games to not have a start menu group in Windows Vista. Instead, the manuals, website links and compatibility modes will be in the game's right-click menu in the Games Browser.

I use the classic start menu and I have a bunch of games that do that. Annoying.
