I have gone back to 10.11 because I was going to try the 10.10e. But the link to the hotfix is broke. I don't have any more display driver stop working when watching videos on line. Plus I have gone up to a year without updating my driver and never had problems.

Plus I don't really care if the game plays in x9 - x10 - or x11. If the games plays and look great in x9 you are not going to see that much of change in x11. But that is like beating a dead horse.

So... DX11 not out yet.

Has anybody tried that other file yet? if it does work, I may install it on my friend's rig and see if there are any differences.

Given the frames I get in hardcore just as the game is, I seriously doubt the dx11 version will even run for me. This 5850 can't cut it apparently.
For all of you holding out, I can say on hardcore, they have completely redefined dx9. It even includes some effects I mistook for tesselation at first. I suppose this could be a combination of their brilliant coding and the recent updates to dx9. Anyhow, the game is not visually disappointing at all even just in dx9, I would easily put it above the original in it's full dx10 glory.
My 5850 handled it at hardcore settings (no tweaking), but only just.
I suppose it's tolerable when you consider that card is the newest part of my entire system though... short of the monitor.

Crysis 2 looks amazing, though dx9 is so outdated... Can't wait for dx11 support, that will be sick.

I still can't login to the game to play Multiplayer so I called EA 20 minutes ago and talked to the support people and they can't fix it on their end so they sent me a link to crytek to file a support ticket with them.

Since EA couldn't fix it they gave me a $20 Off Coupon Code, that doesn't expire, for any any purchase from the EA Store. I decided to pre-order Battlefield 3 for $39.99 shipped.

this is the number I called, 866-543-5435
