Yep, sums up my experience exactly. I mean, I enjoyed it but it just doesn't have the same feel of urgency for a reason or polish that the first had. Has a very "hastely done" feeling.

Oh well, still had some fun with it.

I still get stuff popping up with this.

I created an autoexec config with only this in it, hope I'm doing it right...

Looks great and plays great, that is until I find the Steam overlay is causing me to get blank screens on level loads. Finally have it running ok played for a couple of hours then just then the game stops responding. WTF? I've got the latest drivers, a solid systems for everything else.

Am I alone? I hope so. Hate to think Crytek would take a step backwards after Crysis. ::
I've had it freeze up on me once in MP... the whole game simply stopped responding.

I haven't tried DX9.

DX9 is my only option. It's just so slwo in DX10. I think it must be my ageing 8800GTX. Although in DX9 it just flys along. I'm tempted to try XP, just like I did for the original Crysis.

Autoexec.cfg didn't work for me at all.

I used it as launch commands.

"C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32\Crysis.exe" +con_restricted 0 +r_TexturesStreaming 0 +e_lods 0 +r_UsePOM 0 +r_TexMaxAnisotropy 16

or if in Steam, just add it as a launch command
+con_restricted 0 +r_TexturesStreaming 0 +e_lods 0 +r_UsePOM 0 +r_TexMaxAnisotropy 16

That's not a glitch. It's a electro-trigen. Kill it.

I'd rather lose 2-3 FPS then see objects magically get more detailed and less detailed as I walk.

Will the retail version be activated via Steam or does it have an independent EA activation?

The Steam and retail versions both use SecuROM product activation online.

Will the Steam version have an activation limit?

The Steam version of Crysis Warhead has the same activation limit as the retail version of 5 activations. The Steam version of Crysis Wars will only require authentication upon installation just like the retail product.

How often can I install the game which I got from Steam?

Re-authentication is required only if you make significant changes to your PC's hardware, reformat your hard drive, or in some cases, upgrade your Operating System. Multiple installations of the game on the same computer that has not gone through significant changes will not count against the number of computers the game can be installed on.

Does Crysis Wars have online activation?

Crysis Wars is authenticated upon installation. If you want to play through Gamespy Arcade, youll need a valid registration key like most online games that use that service.

Can I play online only via Steam?

Online play for all versions of Crysis Warhead is done through Gamespy.

Are Crysis and Warhead the same when being downloaded via Steam as the hard copy ones?

Yes, the binaries and content are identical.
