Tweaking Crysis 2
2 March 2011

Crysis 2 is fairly much locked down in terms of advanced tweaking, but there is one working method of implementing cvars, and that is to add them to the launch box for the main executable. Right-click on the Crysis2Demo.exe file found under the \Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis 2 Demo\bin32\ directory and select 'Send to Desktop' to create a launch icon. Then right-click on this new icon on your desktop, select properties, and one blank space after the last character in the Target box, add your command(s) with a plus sign in front of them. This method is detailed at the bottom of this page of the Crysis Tweak Guide, and at the moment many of the commands from Crysis 1 can be used as shown in this section of the guide. For example, adding +g_skipintro 1 skips the intro screens, +cl_fov 85 changes your field of view to 85 degrees, +r_glow 0 disables the heavy glow effect visible particularly in Hardcore graphics, and so on. I'll hopefully have a full Crysis 2 Tweak Guide up at after the final version of the game is released.

It works great. No more glow and claustrophobia that was the default FOV, and no more stupid intros we can't skip.
