I ran it on the very high settings and got all the fancy eye candy that my friend with an 8800 Ultra gets. Mine was just a tad slower. I get 5fps and he got 30 or so.

so to sum it up its a scam

the way they have been advertising dx10 for crysis is a scam

conspiracy to see that bloated heap that is vista sell, conspiracy to sell the dx10 cards.

I should have won that contest run for crysis about dx10 being the next best thing in crysis wheres my 8800, force users to upgrade to dx10 vga and os for little to gain in visual quality. that was the winner right there, screw you ea, screw you crytek, screw you microsoft, screw you nvidia (for god sake they used halo2 faces and compared them to crysis faces, thats more dishonest bullshit from the start, not to mention the bias trailers all ction and effects on dx10 i guy standing there picking his arse in dx9 an honest compariosn would have been the exact same scenes in dx9 and dx10, but know this comes to light it was even more of a scam)

i knew it

f**k them

can anyone say class action law suit

It is pretty simple, i will do it i when i get home.

http://www.crysis-online.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=2729705...ic=11837.0

First go here:

C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis SP Demo\Game\Config

Open up the file named "highspec.cfg"

And simply change the 3 to a 4.

Now every high is actually very high.

The DirectX10 cards would have sold anyway even without games like Crysis because they are exceptionally good at rendering in DirectX9c. In terms of DirectX10 performance these cards are really just DirectX9c cards with token DirectX10 bolted on, just like FX series that had crappy pixel shaders2.. We won't see the performance DirectX10 cards untill next generation at the least.

i have a 4800x2, 2 gigs corsair xms and 2 7900gtx's and this games runs likes**t on my system. oh and i forgot to mention that im running xp pro.
i turn the setting to high and run it 1280x1024 no aa and i get slow down and pause's in game, and not to mention that i cant even run it on meduim setting because i get really bad artifacts and missing textures and all kinds of problems.... i even tried high settings and 800x600 and its still horiable, but im not complaining about not being able to run it on high,but just the fact i cant even run it on med with out problems..

I've been trying all these tweaks for wuite some time now, since the beta started.

It does indeed work in DX9, on DX9 hardware. Obviously, not all shaders are available, but most are, leading to virtually no difference in IQ.

However, it KILLS performance - even on DX10 card in DX9.
