Re: *** Official Retail Crysis Review Thread ***
Try to add this line into your system.cfg or autoexec.cfg:
It enables the POM textures but if the medium shaders change the rendering path it's possible that POM (Parallax Occlusion Mapping) doesn't work with medium shaders.
In that case you'd need to use high shaders and modify the HDR and SSAO values somewhat.
Another alternative would be to mess with the brightness/contrast/gamma sliders and/or the digital vibrance setting in the driver.
