================================================== ==========
================================================== ==========

This config is only for people that want to go above very high,
with smooth & consistent frame rates...

Minimum specs is a 8800GT & a very fast cpu.


*** Features ***
-----------------
* Added lite version for slower specs.

* Increased lod distances on terrain, vegetation, sprites & shadows.

* Increased water reflections distance and quality & tweaked the update
distances.

* Increase battle dust range in meters.

* Tweaked shadows & ssAO varibles for best visual lighting.

* Solved many artifacts with lod & shadows with vanilla settings.
(ie; screen flickering, terrain, water, and shadows updating)

* Optimize particles & physics.

* Added "sys_spec_Full=4" to force all other cmds to veryhigh.

* Better detailed mountains and surface terrain.

* Better shadows & post processing effects.

* Better HDR effects over vanilla default settings.

* Better water reflections and update distances.
===============================================


*** Tweaks ***
----------------
If you have trouble running the config try the following tweaks...

These tweaks should give about 5-fps gain or more especially near water.

"r_WaterReflectionsMinVisiblePixelsUpdate=3" change to 0.05

"r_WaterUpdateDistance=-1" change to 0.2

"e_view_dist_ratio=100" lower this value like 50

"e_shadows_cast_view_dist_ratio=0.7" lower this to like 0.5

*** Please ensure that your playing in fullscreen mode, as performance
can be cut in half by playing crysis in a window mode.

*** Always defrag after installing crysis and other large programs.

*** Make sure to use the latest drivers for your hardware.
================================================== =======


*** Note ***
-------------
Before playing online with this autoexec, you must first change the cmd-
"e_detail_materials_view_dist_xy=4096" to 2048, to avoid punkbuster kick.

**Installation for vista**

1.) Extract .rar file with winrar/winzip.

**Installation for xp**

1.) Extract .rar file with winrar/winzip.

2.) Replace the "CVarGroups" folder into your; \Program Files
\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Game\Config folder" (backup the
original),fyi there is a copy of it on your crysis disc.

3.) Go inside game and set all graphics to high, and exit game.

*I think "sys_spec_Full=3" command will already do this for you,
I've not tested it on xp though.

4.) Place the "autoexec.cfg" file into your; "\Program Files\Electronic
Arts/Crytek/Crysis/Game" folder.
================================================== =====================

If you use my config in a mod please credit me, thanks.

I like to thank Crytek for making this awesome game.

Special thanks to Koroush Ghazi over at tweakguides & to MADBoris for
his guide on the cvars...

"r_HDRlevel=0.75" default is 0.6

Here are some comparison shots to vanilla default veryhigh, same TOD etc...

Notice the minor performance hit, and increased lod on the mounatins, and water reflections, lighting etc...These pics really dont do it justice like being ingame.

WoW! nice work.

now, can or will those high settings look and perform much worse with say, an intel x38 mobo with one 8800 Ultra since no SLi, compared to a 780i nforce mobo with two 8800 Ultras SLi mode.

ram, OS, etc... being the same on both rigs.

I'm thinking a big fat NO. ??

If you can run default veryhigh, you should have no probs running this config. It may have slightly lower fps, but its smoother and consistent.

Guys please continue to give me some feedback, so I can find the right balance between performance and visuals...

First pic is depthoffield 1, second pic is dof 2, which looks best?

dof=1

First one is obviously sharper but in reality you woun't see things very sharp at high distances , it must be blurry if you want realism.

Re: Crysis tweaked config.
 
Yep, I agree there... Plus, it's not overly done, looks quite good.

I've been using this config for a couple of days now and it's much better than vanilla very high! :) Runs smoother and looks better!
