Default Re: MaLDoHD's High resolution Texture Pack For Crysis2

This mod is awesome. I've got every in-game setting to ultra @ 1920x1200 and used the default settings on the mod, and it runs smooth as silk! No hiccups, nothing. It looks amazing and runs awesome!! Playing crysis2 all over again and lovin' it!

Is the performance any better ? Also I'm using radeon pro for my C2 profile, I've have been messing with this game for a week to get it to run good at 120Hz....will this affect it ? It could always look better I guess.

If you want everything maxed out you'll need a GTX460/GTX560 class card to play it at 30fps +. Tessellation, SSDO and particle shadow are the big frame-rate killers.

I have not checked my FPS, but the game just "feels" smoother after I installed the mod. It definately looks better. I was a little hesitant to install it after reading about the negative impact on performance it has at times with AMD cards, but that's not the case with me. I'm very pleased and feel like I have a new game. This is the way Crysis2 should have been released from the beginning.

My 2 cents...

Yes seems better than before. I couldnt even enable tesselation last time, now i can and still main decent framerate.

Default Re: MaLDoHD's High resolution Texture Pack For Crysis2

i posted this in the crymod or wherever the massive thread is on a crysis forum but does this texture mod relace mods later in the game or is he going through bit by bit level by level?

In other words, do the first few levels look awesome but the later ones not have upgraded textures?

I don't want to start playing and then get a few hours in and then no more good textures.

What!? You have played this yet? Performance is excellent compared to the first Crysis, and the visuals are off the charts compared to it as well. The first looks bland and sterile compared to this one.

The action is some of the most intense I've played, and the story is equally impressive. Also, unlike most games, I found the ending to be epic, powerful, and quite spiritual. I'd say it's even worth playing just to experience the ending. I was speechless for a bit at the end, just sat there and enjoyed the rush I got from it.

Seems this mod keeps resetting all my in-game graphics option back to Extreme. Is that happening for others as well?

Also how are you guys setting up the advanced config part of the tool? I started with the recommeded settings, but seems some of the recommeded values are lower than the extreme/ultra values.

No, there are new textures all the way through the game.
