Good news for me cuz i was wating on fire to play this game and when i know and see the horable graphics i didn't play it, so now i think i will play it.

And i hope it will be really bring DX11 details to be offecial game test for graphic cards like old times.
And you have the graphics card for it. Enjoy. ;)

In my opinion, this game never had "horable" graphics. Even in DX9 mode, it looked spectacular (especially when compared to a lot of other games). Now it looks even better, and takes advantage of many of the features offered by DX11.

Edit: 1000th post, lol

I agree, it did look excellent even then.

Some people are never satisfied or are wearing sunglasses in front of the screen. It is indeed debatable what looks better but it is obvious that now Crysis 2 is very much a good follow-up to the first game and in doing so it has some of the best graphics available for PC right now. We'll see what BF3 will bring to the table and from what we saw until now it will redefine realism in PC gaming.

I haven't got home yet, but does anyone here know if this patch fixes the horrible texture flickering for dual card systems?

I stopped playing the game on my main rig a long time ago because of this bug, and have been playing it on my HTPC only lately (the problem seems to be less pronounced on my dual GTX285s than on my 580s for some reason.

Anybody else here had the same problem?

I initially had this problem, but fixed it on the first day by using the EVGA SLI Enhancement patch. What drivers are you using?

I now have a very nice looking slideshow. Which settings to cut first. Any advice?
What FPS are you getting? and what drivers are you using?

I installed the latest CAP and went back to 11.2 drivers and the game runs sweet now, but i have yet to install these latest updates, lets hope it didn't break it for me.

At least they bothered. Like hell i am pretty surprised they even did it even more so with EA.
I believe that NVIDIA paid them 2 million dollars to add DX11, and that they started working on adding it back in November 2010.

I know this isn't the dx11 patch, but the 1.9 patch still doesn't fix lost catalyst points or whatever,
that you get when you kill the aliens. I am more than 3/4 through the game, and have lost not
only the unlocked skills, but the points i was saving as well...

so unless i restart the game, there is still no enjoyment to be had :(

That sucks. I only hate the fact that NanoCatalysts vanish too quickly. You snipe aliens from some spot and before you can get down there they just disappear.

Btw, any kind of DOF is lame because they all look crappy and unnatural by far.
