  1. ^+1 its the level bro. beautiful but rigmelting
  2. ^ Yep, I remember being super ticked when that happened to me. I've come to the conclusion (maybe a little cynical -_-) that most things running on the Crytek engines are glorified tech demos. Beautiful to gaze upon, but rife with issues.

  4. thanks to you all
    i guess i can't continue any longer :(
    i'll probably try out warhead, i hoping that one will be free from bugs
  5. warhead runs SOOO much better

  7. Look in your Crysis directory and you will see there is a 32bit exe and a 64 bit exe. Use the 32bit exe and play with full speed again. I had the same problem when moving to 64bit Win 7, changed the exe to the 32bit and runs on max settings with no lag compared to game stall on 64bit.
  8. thnx man but there is no way i can get it running in 32bit on 64bit os
    it only tells me crysis has stopped responding when i do that. the game doesn't even start at all
