Default Re: Post your final config for retail crysis here!

My rig:

E6420@3.2Ghz
BFG 8800GTX OC
2 GB DDR2-800
Dell 2405fpw
Windows XP

Ok so I decided that to run my native resolution, 1920x1200, I would need to sacrifice some settings from HIGH, so I decided instead to accept some interpolation by going down to 1680x1050 and still allowing the Dell to scale, rather than 1:1.

This is with 0xAA and all defaults with the 169.09 driver.

I set all ingame options to HIGH and then used the following system.cfg file located in the \program files\crysis directory.

con_restricted=0
r_displayinfo=0
r_motionblur=0
r_sunshafts=1
r_useedgeaa=0

;these vars turn on color grading, which gives the very high look
q_renderer=3
r_colorgrading=1

; water very high override
r_WaterRefractions=1
r_WaterReflections=1
r_WaterUpdateFactor=0.05
e_water_tesselation_amount=10
e_water_tesselation_swath_width=10
r_WaterUpdateDistance=0.2
r_WaterCaustics=1
r_WaterReflectionsQuality=4
e_water_ocean_fft=1
q_ShaderWater=2
r_WaterReflectionsMinVisiblePixelsUpdate=0.05


This gives me the full very high water effects which I love, and then the color grading extra high effect plus sunshafts.

I turn edge AA off as I find using it combined with the interpolation/scaling of the dell makes things too blurry. This gives me back only about 2fps.

I turn off motion blur as it gives me back about 5-8fps.

This combined gives me an average framerate of 35fps, with a minimum of 24fps (measure using GPU benchmark test)

It's playable, but I would love to get an average framerate of 45 or more.
