Here's what Xconfig (with the correct TOD batch file injected) looks like for me.






















Gaco, Man I got no clue what's up with yours... what drivers are you using? I've got the 177.89 forceware drivers right now from guru3d.

That's exactly what Xconfig looks to me as well, it's actually very beautiful and well rounded. Perhaps a little bit dark at times and the sky sometimes have too much exposure/bloom, but it's actually very good for the most part. Fastponycar I can see you you get around 30 FPS with Xconfig (at next-highest install setting). That's just about the same as well, so we have the same performance with that config. It's really weird we don't have the same with Mster's config then...

BTW how do you check which driver version is installed?

Well, I installed them about 2 days ago so it's still sitting on my desktop. Otherwise, right click on the desktop and go to nvidia control panel, advanced view (if it asks) then go to help and finally system information and it'll say there.

175.19 it appears.. what kind of weird drivers are that, I thought it was the latest official.. I wonder if vista installed some in between when I cleaned last drivers or something. Anyway I just get clearly better performance with Xconfig. I get 28-30 FPS most of the time while Mster's give me 22-25 FPS most of the time. Looking only at the visuals I'm not sure when I prefer actually...

go to www.guru3d.com and hit the downloads sections and find the vista 64 drivers area for the nvidia cards and you'll see the new ones there.

Default Re: Which Crysis config do you prefer?

I have now. Gained 1-2 FPS perhaps, but nothing like 38 FPS, that's is insanely high from all I've been trying of configs and settings in general. Still haven't found a config where I think "there, that's perfect" (water in Mster's still looks so weird), which is kinda sad
Gonna need to do a bit more testing I guess.. it's now between Extreme Mod, Xconfig and Mster's.

Did you change your personal preference btw?

Meh I think I'm settling on Mster's config, not because of performance (I do get 25 FPS most of the time, 30 max) but because it offered the overall best visuals IMO. I do hope that he will eventually fix the bit too dark night with too unrealistic sky w. ugly clouds/oversaturated night colors/make water a little bit more still/add a bit of gloominess to the alien levels, it'd be perfect.

Default Re: Which Crysis config do you prefer?

Now going for rygel's textures + Mster's config 3.01 quality for second playthrough. Mster's quality config doesn't include any POM lines though. Does it mean it's on or off per default?

Doesn't it look better with no POM and 8xAF using rygels textures than POM enabled and 0xAF? And I take that the only way to enable AF is through nvidia control panel?

In short: POM vs. AF, who wins??

In the heavily pebbled area there before you get to the iced' boat, flipping between pom on and off only changed 2 fps.. it sort of varies where it will benefit and where it won't. Some places I noticed up to 6 or 7 extra fps.

Default Re: Which Crysis config do you prefer?

Ok.. well actually I meant more in terms of visuals than performance, which is better, POM or AF when you can't have both? I remember POM being some 3D-effect on 2D textures but I don't remember the extend of their use..? What do you prioritize?

BTW I dropped Mster's config. I simply can't stand the night scenes, and unfortunately that means a lot to me. Especially since I'm going to be playing it with a good friend soon, and it's a rather bad impression to get of Crysis if you see the first nightscene in Mster's config. I'm going for either the more naturally looking Xconfig (and the yellow/orange tint you see in Jmanrob's pictures isn't there, I guess he's using an old version) or the most natural Xtreme config now.

The harbor assault at night looks incredible with the xconfig and it's TOD.

The SSAO and HDR settings can make or break a configuration, especially at night or in dark areas.

If you want more peformance, turn off POM. That's what I do. It doesn't make any visual impact to me personally, especially considering a lot of Rygel's textures have sort of this pseudo POM texture trickery going on so they APPEAR 3d but upon closer in spection it's just textures done a certain way.
