Does the new Crysis 2 DX11 patch fix the flickering issue?

Crysis 2 is virtually unplayable due to a horrible graphics glitch where all light sources are constantly flickering. Apparently I'm not the only one experiencing this problem. It has something to do with crossfire and SLI GPU setups. This is not a problem with single-GPU systems.

Here is a video example of this problem.

I have two HD 5870's (1GB) in crossfire and this problem is very bad on my end. The only way to fix it is to either disable crossfire or run the game in windowed mode.

Where do I download this new DX11 patch for Crysis 2? Is it third-party software or an official Crytek program?

It's official software, download it here: http://www.mycrysis.com/dx11

It doesn't report to fix the crossfire flickering issue, and I read it actually causes a new flickering problem for SLI, although my GTX 465s have no flickering problem. Are you running the newest catalyst drivers?

Apparently the 1.9 patch, DX11 and high resolution upgrade did solve the flickering problem.

What are the latest patches for HD 5870's in crossfire?

no, the new patches and whatnot didn't solve anything. there's still to much flickering to actually play the game, unless your lucky.

i however, with my 2 gtx 480's and 9800 for physX, am certainly not one of the lucky ones.

have you updated to the 270.51 nvidia drivers for nvidia cards.
and if you have ati then try the lates ati Xfire profiler...
there should be a new set of ati drivers in the next 2-3 days...(15th of the month is the usual distro day)

You do have Windows 7 / Vista X 64 right ?


Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

Are the 11.6 the latest drivers for the HD 5870? Are those the crossfire drivers you linked me to?

After I download them, how do I install them?

11.6 are the latest drivers.
Crossfire drivers ? Both cards should have the same drivers. There aren't any specific drivers for CF.
You only have to make sure that you have the CCC Crossfire setting checked. Also you should download the profiles from the link that I gave.

they are the latest drivers but the crossfire profiler app is seperate.
it can be found from the same page as you got the drivers from probably on a different tab...
