Default Re: CRYSIS DEMO Vista 64 DX9 Mode with tweaked Ini is the way to go!

The distant mountains also look about the same to me as when 32-bit DX10 loads them in properly, but it might help to see it in motion.
My thoughts exactly.

On the contrary I felt the mouselag regardless of the framerate and found it intolerable. It's sad because really the only thing that's keeping me from playing the DX10 path and not even thinking about the DX9 and tweaking is the really annoying mouselag. So right now I have both a DX9 and DX10 shortcut on my desktop, depending on my mood. As Legend, I think you'd definently notice if you switched back and forth between DX9 and DX10 mode a few times.
