So, has anyone here tried the " Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Options Application " with positive results?

I started playing this yesterday. For a DX9 game it looks good, but I would say not as good as the original. However it doesn't need the same sort of power rig that the first Crysis needed. I am getting frame rates of 60+ on average, on extreme settings.

Some things I noticed.

The game cannot handle crossfire or sli. You get extreme flashing in brightly lit areas. I got around this by using Radeon Pro (which also lets you tweak the video settings) and the Bioshock profile. This has lessened the problem but it is still there. The only way (at present) to fully get around this issue is to disable crossfire. Even the 1.1 patch didn't resolve it, in fact it made it worse.

One thing I hate about this game is the fact that saves and quick saves have gone (obviously because this game was designed for consoles and ported to PC, that it why it is DX9 based). There are only checkpoint saves. This means you can play through an entire section, and get killed right at the very end, and have to play the whole level again.

Some other little niggles.

There is no flashlight available. In dark areas you have to use "nanovision" where all you can see are heat signatures - you may as well be blind.

In the original Crysis the nanosuit always defaulted to armour mode, whereas in this game it reverts to power (strength) mode. Armour mode now drains power (as in stealth) so has limited use.

There is too much ammo available. I have never yet run out of ammo, and at every ammo dump (and there are plenty) there is always ammo to fill up every weapon you have.

All in all not a bad game. Good gameplay with a good storyline. DX9 is not an issue for me although IF a DX11 patch does come out I will try it. A little linear but still plenty of room to explore. And a new concept for Crysis is you can now collect trophies and souveniers through the game (so if you want to complete it fully you have to go searching for these as well).

I just hope that they sort the crossfire issue soon.

It makes you think that the game is longer that what it really is... nice marketing ploy and a pisser for us SP Campaigners.

Uhmmm, I don't like this one bit, I am a scary cat and if I can't see the baddies, it does not bode well with me.

The little time I played the game, I can honestly say I have only use the Cloak Mode so I can't really comment on the others.

This I did noticed and I can only assume that it is because of Console players needing to run and gun and still not die because they ran out of bullets.

If you have seen all the videos out there, they all have one thing in common... I call it "The Rambo Approach"

And I totally disagree here since, instead of playing a shooter game, I am kinda force to play a Lego Star Wars game and collect all the Legos. Another Marketing ploy so the SP Campaigners feel that the game is long.

I guess I am old (or getting old) but I prefer not to have to collect toys and souvenirs and just deal with disposing of baddies for the duration of the game.

Oh another question that I gotta ask... What with the Injection that Profit/Alcatraz has to inject at some point in the game? What exactly does that do to him and how does it help?

Yes, I did. Great application, works without a flaw as far as I know.

I just have one little question: do I have to delete the autoexec.cfg file everytime I change the game's settings in that Advanced Graphics Options application? Or does it just overwrite it when I've changed anything?

LOL reading the thread the patch has garnered more complaints than praise. Wow

The thing is is that most of the complaints are on an issue that has apparently been addressed, but was initailly left out of the notes - The Nano suit bug.

The problem whit the patch,.. Yer crytek is doing what thay can to remedy the gigantic problems whit this game since release, the reason people (myself includet) are so pissed off, are that they have made alotta prommises about bugs gettin fixed in nxt patch, and then they dident, most notably the nano cataclysm bug in singleplayer,..
And they damn near almost killed MP, becoz of all the bugs/cheaters/pirates,.. but it definetly helped after last patch, but there are still cheaters on almost every server u enter in MP,.. The gameplay in MP is just the kinda Fastpaced not-too-realistic gungho somewat tactical (the nanosuits) experience i Like, (if u like the more "realistic" MP experience, like BFBC2,.. U will NOT like the MP in crysis2) so im gonna stick whit it, but i can see theres less people on servers now, I just hope they will get these issues fixed down the road,..

What actually is the bug with the nano suit as I personally have not noticed it. I only play SP though.
