Making this the Official Crysis moments would be cool, but that depends on the few who are up to uploading their recorded mini clips.

Ok I made this thread with the idea of putting a special recorded Crysis moment that you had. I'm replaying the game for the second time and am always tempted to do new stuff, so I tried many many form of jumping over a certain bridge to see If I could cut walking time (finding another route) in half. I made this super short clip of me jumping over he destructed bridge.

It's pretty lame compared to the other ones with 1000 exploding barrels 10k crates etc.

What's your Crysis moment?

I wish my system made Crysis look like that :(

Anyway, I have yet to finish the game... hell, I'm only 1 level past the tank mission... no fighting aliens yet.

Anyway, my favorite early moment was accidentally picking up a washing machine and saying "Holys**t, I CAN PICK UP A WASHING MACHINE!"

Also, I have a video of simply running through a level in speed mode... I was talking on the phone and not actually playing, just running, and I got all the way though a level on accident just by sprinting along a cliff-side. When I went back to actually play it the next day, it took me a solid 5-10 attempts, and probably an hour of my time.

I see that you have an 8800GT, what settings do you play on? On my old system with a Geforce 6800 I played through the whole game on the lowest settings. Now with my new 8800GT and new system, I'm playing through again on all High @ 1680x1050 with 2x AA. Ever since the 1.1 patch it runs much smoother.

I'm mostly just screwing around this second time through the game, and trying new things. The first time through the game I was rushing way to fast.

Haha, this game has many suprises and it's great to replay it after you finish it.

Yes the 1.1 patch made the game very playable and you can turn on V-Sync without any loss in frame rates, at leas for me in Windows XP.

I play the game with shadows on medium and everything else on high without AA. I get 35-ish normally and I've seen it go to the high 40's almost to 50 in some levels.

The DX9 plays sweet now since the patch. That's on Vista. Very smooth
I have a modded config file for DX10. Still not enough in game options to play with.
Having the Motion Blur option's a good one, but still not enough.

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

All those vids... are they done via an option in game? Cos i don't see anything to
record in game vids. Or is it just Fraps?

I really need to install the Crysis sandbox editor thing everyone is talking about. I keep hearing about it and never remember to install it. Alright, I'm gonna install it right now, since I'm thinking about it.

Another Crysis Moment. A car with a guy handling the MG + Am exploding barrel + the (sometimes dumb) AI system + A perfect throw = Nice explosion!

What's your Crysis moment?
