That's pretty funny. I've been sitting here debating on whether I should install C1 but honestly, I remember how lame that game was. Not worth my time. I'll wait until the Steam Christmas sale to get this one.

So the way I see it is, most of you guy's are upset becasue you guessed you'd need killer hardware to play this game, You spent much wonga only to find out you could have played it on your old graphics card. DOH.
285 SLI for the win

Yeah, how dare Crytek not make Crysis 2 play on GTX580 quad SLI at 20fps and have us wait two generations of hardware to max it out.

Actually, I think this is the reason they're pissed (Press start to begin). A game that has become a flagship for the PC has been thrown away for the almighty dollar. A game that should have been DX11 from launch is DX9, and editing the graphics settings is a PITA.

Wow, some of you guys are friggin brutal! I been playing it for a short time and I think it's quite good. Is it worth $60? Well we could debate all day on that and never get anywhere. Better get used to it, I think $60 is going to be the norm for PC games. If that's too much for your blood, better just sell your rig and quit gaming. If more people would just quit gaming, it would take a lot of whiners out of these forums!

I remember the original Crysis took quite a beating too from the game slayers (not to be confused with real game players).

I thought the first one was good, I think this one is good. Not even going to spend any time trying to compare them. Different times, different games. A port? So friggin what? Most all of them are and that's not going to change.

I do wish there was a walk command. I don't like running around all the time. I'm in no hurry. Right now I use the crouch when I want walk speed.

Anyway, you guys keep on complaining. I'm going to play instead.

People seem pretty happy with it so far.
About to test out... no blur.. wider FOV, no toggle crouch, no toggle zoom.. yes yes yes


Still a shame POM doesn't work. IMO that is what I'm missing the most when I just stand still and look around.

Awesome. Gonna test this when I get home. It's a pretty fun game. I like the gameplay tweaks most of all. AI no longer has super vision. Nor are they as dumb as say in Splinter Cell Conviction. I like how the suit spots tactical advantages and will highlight them if you want. The guns feel really good. It plays a lot like FEAR2 IMHO. You can definitely feel the consoleness. But it's still responsive and very fast. If we can tweak the FOV it should feel a bit better. I'm not totally sold on the cover system. It's like Killzone 2 and CoJ2 but not as elegant. It works but so far I haven't felt compelled to use it. As I mentioned the graphics aren't as refined as Crysis1. But the game still looks amazing. Even better in motion.

I am hoping for a DX11 patch as I'm planning to get a 590GTX.

so far so good. FOV is much improved but the gun itself is identical comparing default FOV and 80 FOV @ 1900x1200 res.

This is the cfg it generated. My only question is, what controls the light bloom. It's gotta go. Is that what "post processing" is? There's no "off" just low, med, high settings for that value.

I think if I can get rid of the bloom and light glow, I can live with it until we get some more proper settings. This is just a bare bones config tweak. Not even the tip of the iceberg.

Code:
g_skipIntro=1
cl_fov=80
pl_movement.power_sprint_targetFov=90
i_mouse_accel=0
i_mouse_accel_max=100
i_mouse_smooth=0
r_motionblur=0
g_radialBlur=0
cl_zoomToggle=0
r_UseEdgeAA=3
r_TexMaxAnisotropy=16
sys_spec_shading=3
sys_spec_gameeffects=3
sys_spec_objectdetail=3
sys_spec_particles=3
sys_spec_physics=3
sys_spec_postprocessing=3
sys_spec_shadows=3
sys_spec_sound=3
sys_spec_texture=3
sys_spec_water=3
r_PostMSAA=3
cl_crouchtoggle=0
Ninja edit: nope. post processing wasn't it. I'll try "effects" now.

Edit2: Nope that wasn't it either WTFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU

Yeah. I'd like to tweak the bloom too. It's not quite bad Company 2, but the bloom does slap you in the face.

I agree whole heartedly. Im having a goodtime with it. Peoples expectations and reasons to bitch are getting ridiculous. Its like nobody is ever satisfied and they are all expert game designers all of a sudden.
