Re: Crysis installation/backup
Another thing, it was weird when I had installed Crysis and all patches etc and started it I just crashed to the desktop, and the in one .log file it said something like "[Error] Runaway thread". I tried to start Crysis several times, same thing, then I copied the old "D-copy" but it did the same. I was like huh, what now? but as it was a new istallation of windows XP and new forceware 185.85 but the settings was set to "determined by application" in Riva Tuner and I thought the Crysis game engine would handle it.
At the time the desktop was 1280x960 which I almost always use and use it in Crysis too, then I thought maybe a default 1024x768 will help as a "Runaway thread" sounds like it has too much to do, and guess what, it did the trick and know work great with both Crysis folders.
2) Though I haven't tried the "D-copy" and its "My Games/Crysis" folder on the new installation yet.
btw, my sig is my old old asus computer, have a Gigabyte P35-DQ6, Q6600 @3.2 GHz, 4 GB DDR2 @800Mhz, XFX 8800 GTS 320 Fatal1ty etc now.
edit: I have now tested the 2) and it works better now and better framerates, the "Awakening" map had no flickering textures or other stuff that alomst made it stall some times before. So I guess the "old backup" is pretty much useless as it introduces some problems that makes some maps unplayable.
So know I know it's better to install the game and then copy in the saved "My Games" folder and it will be fine.
