Default What happened to this?

What is this, screenshots prove nothing can someone make their game look like this and show me?

Yea we all knew the game looked too good back then, but crytek said they disabled the highest shader setting cause there is no hardware today available that would work satisfying, they will though when hardware matures enable that setting later on.

It's just the lighting...
I don't know if it can be made to look as good as the first screenshot but it can certainly be made to look better than the second.

Check out this vid:

No No I was just curious - and again what system is the guy who is playing the game in the video you linked... That guy must have a system of Jesus to run the game at 27+ FPS.

Actually I remember seeing video's of the Crysis Direct x 10 supposed in game footage in the jungle settings like that first screen shot you posted.

They claimed in game footage back then, and it seemed to be running ok, now they say they disabled the highest quality setting, but even the setting we CAN access looks nothing like those old vids, somethings not right?

you expose a big issue. crysis looks nothing like what was promised and the supposed dx10 "everything will look much better and use much less resources" was a total lie.

crysis in it's current form is not a revolution in graphics. it's a mere evolution. increase the poly count, add a few effects like very limited moving foliage etc. nothing that couldn't be done in dx9 as already proven.

slowly but surely we are seeing the hype for what it is. hype.

Despite everything, I still think the graphics are just great, and even better I love the gameplay.

It very much like it was promised. You just have different settings in the game with different atmospheres..we have seen just one level.

And where did Crytek state that DX10 look much better? They said many times that DX10 does'nt make much difference regarding the effects. Only the performance will be better.
Of course, the performance currently is rather worse than DX9.

Where is the difference?

1. Even if you suddenly could render real life images it would only mean an increased poly count and new effects

2. All foliage is moving

3. It was stated many times that DX10 would offer performance increases and not (many) new effects.

The only promise that wasn't kept is the DX10 performance...

What can hype be other than hype?
