Windows 7: Crysis 2 dx11 disabled

Crysis 2 dx11 disabled

Hi everyone, i got a weird problem. I had played crysis 2 in dx11 previously but i thought of playing it again now i cant enable the dx11 in game and also in system and game.cfg files.

When i manually enter the command in both the cfg's as r_driver = "dx11" [both all small and D and DX caps] it doesn't change anything also the log file says that the video card doesn't support dx11 or dx11.pak not found.

Don't ask me to re-install delete all profiles and save games coz i've done that 4 or 5 times. Also i manually removed the entries from and registry and also used registry cleaner from windows 7 manager.

System.cfg

; crysis2

sys_game_folder=GameCrysis2
sys_dll_game=CryGameCrysis2.dll
sys_user_folder=Crysis2
r_SkipIntro = 1
r_ShaderCompilerServer=192.168.14.180;192.168.14.181

log_IncludeTime = 1
sys_languages = "english,french,spanish,german,russian,polish,italian,czech,chineseT"

log_verbosity = 0

r_displayInfo = 1

sys_PakLogInvalidFileAccess=0
sys_float_exceptions=0



game.cfg

-- [Game-Configuration]
-- Attention: This file is re-generated by the system! Editing is not recommended!

r_Driver = "DX9"
r_fullscreen = 1
r_Height = 768
r_Width = 1360
sys_spec = -1




Thanks in advance..

You always want to go to the main source... AMD/ATI or Nvidia.

it's to update the direct x not the ati/nvdia drivers. Direct x is disturbed by Microsoft not amd or nvdia. I wasn't giving a link to update the video drivers i was giving a link to update direct x since he could of not installed dx11 and could of been causing the problem.

My bad... this is what happens when you don't pay attention and assume something is not.

Have you applied all the patches after doing the reinstall since you mentioned you did a reinstall already.You can find the latest patch for enabling dx11 here MyCrysis - DirectX 11 Ultra Upgrade for Crysis 2

Because by default when you install crysis 2 it only has dx9

Yes i have applied both 1.9 patch and the dx11 ultra upgrade
When i manually add the command r_driver="dx11" it reverts back to dx9 as the game starts and in the game log it says that the video card doesnt support dx11 or dx11.pak file not found. Its right in the patch folder inside the crysis 2 folder. My card is ati 5670 hd and it supports dx11 and previously also i have enabled dx11 in crysis 2. Dont know what is the problem here.

I have an creative x-fi installed which I have disabled. The on board realtek (mb is an asus ph67) shows audio input to speakers in control panel but no sound at jacks (front or rear). Does the presence of the Creative SC disable the onboard audio?
