Default Re: *** Official Retail Crysis Review Thread ***

so I've got all my new hardware installed on Vista x64, and I cannot get the 64-bit version of Crysis to run. it won't even make it to the EA logo. I've tried nearly everything, from running in windowed mode to making sure I have all the hotfixes(I even installed Vista SP1 for the hell of it)and the game still crashes upon starting. I also tried that single display performance mode/force on vsync fix in the nVidia control panel and still no go. I even changed my antivirus since I read somewhere that AVG doesn't play nice with Vista x64 and Crysis. I also reinstalled Crysis. still crashes upon launch.

what video drivers do you guys recommend to get the 64-bit version of Crysis working? because that's about the only thing I haven't tried(running 169.09 betas atm).

I'm fine with running the game in 32-bit mode, I just wanted to try 64-bit since I read that you get anywhere from 10-15% performance increase. that may or may not be true, but I just wanted to try.
