I played about 1/4th of the single player so far, then got UT3. I can't wait to try this out. Thanks Jimmy!

you've not got long to go then - I was seriously disappointed at the length of the game tbh :(

I enjoyed it a lot (well, the Mountain and VTOL levels sucked a bit) but was quite surprised when I found I had finished it. Far Cry and STALKER took me what felt like months - this was less than a week, no more than a few hours at a time and not even everyday

I get 1 more fps with stock settings on my card, however I can now overclock the snot out of my card and play, and I think I'm getting a pretty big gain in fps for sure. Before the patch for some reason, if I OC'd my video card at all, the game would be choppy. All fixed!:D

Crossfire 2900 No improvement

Dont know if this may have to do with Vista and dx10's continuing lack of crossfire performance but I have No improvement On msi p35 Plat, nor any improvement on asus maximus x38 with 2x2900, I refuse to play on xp since this is supposed to be a dx10 game so I have no way to tell if the patch increases crossfire performance on dx9 rigs.

thought I'd dig this up instead of starting another thread . . .


anyone running xFire - how did this work out for you?

I installed the patch, but, I swear I'm only seeing about 1 FPS improvement in xFire. Seems to run better at 1280x1024 resolution, also, as compared to any other resolution . . .


but, I swear things look different . . . can't put my finger on it, but it's like things are a bit more jagged than before, and everything appears a little brighter . . . maybe it's just me . . .

With this patch and CF 3870s, I'm getting MAJOR chugs now when I didn't before the patch.

Will work to determine if the patch is truly to blame.

I bought this game a week ago but haven't really played it as i'm waiting for my 3870 to arrive (wednesday hopefully). Just been playing around with settings to achieve best visuals with my crossfired x1800gto's atm.
Haven't tried the patch yet (will do 2moro), so far i run 1024x768, 4x aa and the settings below:



this is with cpu @ 4040mhz
both gfx's @ 641/720

Anything set lower just looks crap, any higher major slowdown.

crossfired 1800s - that's something you don't see everyday :toast:


Anyhow, I was just curious what other's thought of the before/after 1.1 . . . I swear, though, I could get the game to run a lot better with just 1 GPU installed, and I held out for a long while to really "play" the game (exploring stuff, fiddling with tactics, etc) until the patch was released . . . I was seriously starting to wonder if their means of allowing crossfire to work was along the lines of graphics being "optimized" (read: of somewhat lower quality).

IDK, something has just seemed a little fishy about this game in regards to ATI hardware :wtf:

I think I had that, but figured it was because I was trying to put the retail patch on my demo version.

Still waiting to find an updated demo with the patch included...

1.1 patch and beta forceware drivers have done wonders, Im playing at 1440x900 and very high on Vista 64. super smooth game play just like I had before but only inside buildings. :nutkick:

I wonder if CCC 8.1 will offer improvements for us ATI users, as both 7.11 and 7.12 both had no perfromance improvements for Crysis, IIRC. As far as I know, ATI is still recommending that we use the Crysis hotfix drivers :confused:

But, anyways - I'm just a little irked I guess - been waiting for the patch to really allow myself to get into the game (I'm the kind that likes to check out every nook and cranny :o), and we all know how frame rates are. I've been able to duke the performance up, and run decent IQ for the time being, but I had to go dig through the Crysis TweakGuide to get things acceptable. TBH, anyone that hasn't taken the time to read through it, I'd defi recommend it!
