the snow levels had excessively high particles, which are CPU driven.

Is it possible for the dual core support, buggy as it is to screw up in windowed mode?
Hard to say for sure. But there is something going on. I've also noticed low frame rates when changing resolution. For me, cleaning the cache seems to restore the lost performance. Once the cache is cleaned out the game loads faster and, there is no pausing when attempting to enter "load save point" section of the game. These aren't "game breakers" but having played this game a few times I've found some issues that needs to be addressed.

well thats interesting. Sure its not your card dropping to 2D or something? (its possible its a driver bug)
I have seen such results a few times in a few different games..

Not sure what causes it I haven't paid much attention.
But its possible the card is clock switching, or the os is trying to take ram.. :confused:

Anyone having lockup issues in Vista, game will run great for 10-15 minutes and then pop it will lock at the oddest times...

Maybe SP1 will fix it?

Annoying me really bad...

My clock is stable, OCCT for 31 hours.

No problem like that for me. Using Ultimate x64. I remember seeing a thread about the new Catalyst 8.10 beta RC2 and one user said he was no longer having lockups in Warhead.

Ya that 3850 is a bit slow, I remember playing it on my core 2 @ 3.2 with a 3850 overclocked and once I got to the frozen parts, it was reset everything to medium.. :ohwell:

Do you have other apps running? I installed mine remotely from work so I dont know how long it took :confused:
I found that removing as many processes as possible can help with running Crysis Warhead smoother. Going from 50 processes to 35 make a small difference for me. However, I know what each process does so I know what's needed and what's not needed.

Crysis Wars launched alongside Crysis Warhead. If you bought Warhead, you should have the game.

Has anybody experienced serious lag at the start of frozen paradise? I'm averaging 40-45 fps in gamer mode, But starting frozen paradise it drops down 7-15 fps. Not even playable.

Eh just beat it, had a saved game in the tower for like a week, then I decided to play again today.. Pfft lame short, lame ending, lame story...

Hmm, lets take our engine and add a few hours of work and sell a new game...

Sure crysis looks pretty, but the first one was so much better of a game in itself...

Agreed. I'm glad Warhead wasnt the price of a regular retail game.. it's simply not worth $60.
