Crysis and Windows 7

Hey all :) I got a problem here :(

When i installed Crysis,and then clicked on its icon,a blank screen appeared(and when i was expecting to see the game) it crashed to windows with no errors,i tried reinstalling the game and it didnt help.
So i used the compatibility mode with VISTA 64 SP2 and the game started,but i lost about 15 FPS compared to Vista 64 SP1.

I have installed patch 1.2 and its still the same.


thanks :)

  1. I have no resolution, but I am glad to see its not just my friend with the problem. although he ends up crashing instead of low FPS.

    He has an ATI card as well, a 4890. I'll watch this incase a solution is found.
  2. k thanks :)
  3. Im running the 32bit version of W7 and Crysis is fine.

  4. thanks mac,and does it give u same FPS like VISTA/XP ?
  5. I skipped Vista but W7 is generally faster/better, could be my imagination but it seems to handle FPS dips better as well. in games than XP, So far

  6. ok thanks :)
  7. Thought I'd let you know I'm running Windows 7 x64 with a GTX260 and Crysis works perfectly fine; it's actually slightly faster than it was on Vista.

    Maybe it has something to do with the ATI card? :heink:
  8. I dont know :( my performance with Win7 isnt good at all :(

  11. hi Maziar
    im using catalyst 9.4 x64

  12. thanks:)
  13. Maziar, My friend fixed his issue recently. He finally upgraded to Patch 1.21 and it fixed his issues.
  14. Will try that thanks :)
  15. no problem
  16. I talked to him again last night, Apparently it only fixed the 32bit version, the patch did not touch the 64bit side according to him. That said he did play for several hours last night while we were on Teamspeak together.
  17. I tried 32bit and it works flawless thanks alot btw u may want to take a look @ this :D i reinstalled WIN 7 RC and every game works solid :)

    thanks again :)
  18. i think the unpatched version (1.0) wont work on win7 x64

    its a bit of a hassle for those pirated versions ;)
  19. Hi, I have no problems
  20. Hi, my Crysis crashes too, at first the game menu and movies works well, then suddenly when I go in game, the Crysis suddenly crashes ( the game has stopped working ) , but then I also tried it in multiplayer mode, here are what I got:

    1.I use the beach stage, everytime I spawn from within a building, the game will eventually crash

    2.in Beach also, if I spawn on top of a submarine, the game works fine, I can go around the submarine the go into the water, till that point everything works fine, then after arriving ashore, still fine, then I tried shooting the pistol, then CRASH

    notice that everything is fine until I view a 3D graphic which maybe is causing the problem. ex: graphics inside building, pistol shooting action, etc because at that point the Crysis will crash

    Still haven't found the solution, but I think it's not the OS causing this, but maybe it's a driver problem

    note: I notice cliffro has the same problem with the ATI 4890, which is the similar card as mine, I think maybe its the VGA that's causing this

    My system:
    windows 7 32 bit
    i7 920
    ASUS P6TD Deluxe
    Mushkin RAM
    Sapphire Radeon HD4890 Vapor-X

    Maziar,

    What is your graphics card and which drivers are you using? The issue you describe sounds as though you may be experiencing some driver issues. Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum located here http://tinyurl.com/9fhdl5 . It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to also check the threads available there for additional assistance and feedback.

  22. install crysis warhead to update game on window 7.... this is the only way to play crysis on w7.
  23. Crysis & Windows 7 64bit:

    Here is what worked for me.

    Installed Crysis, ran game. You will not need to run the 64bit launch icon. Crysis will automatically run the correct bit version based on your CPU. So simply run the short-cut placed on your desktop.

    Once up and running change a few different settings; like keyboard config or show blood. Apply changes. If stable... go ahead and download version 1.1 and 1.2 DO NOT INSTALL 1.21 (1.21 is for 32bit only and will not run at all on a 64bit system).

    I recommend running the game after each version install to check stability and to make sure the version updates through the launching of the game.

    Once done with 1.1 and 1.2 install you should have a stable performance as I have had. Runs like a champ.

    8 Gig of ram
    1 gig video card
    1 terra byte harddrive

    Well I have the same configuration as you except I have win 7 ult 64bit with nvidia 275oc. And crysis is running rough. It runs but sometimes skips to windows and then back again. I have cursor (aiming problems) in call of duty modern warfare 2 as well. It locks up and then makes that error sound and then turns loose. This sucks!!! I am going to buy 32 bit win 7 ult. and install it on another drive then I will have both. Maybe one day they will fix it.
  25. werid i running 64 bit crysis but what i do is go into the crysis folder and go the the 32 bit version for osme odd reason 64 bit does not work for me haha ironic isnt it. Windows is weird. just be thankful that windows 7 fixed alot of issues that vista had but if you still can't get it to work aim me at spleee254 and il give you some other options :P
  26. I'm running 64 bit Crysis in Win 7 and haven't had any problems using a 5870.

    I have, however, had an interesting pop up which asked me to turn off aero due to a lack of memory (with 6gigs). I went ahead and switched to a win 7 basic theme, which turns off aero, and it ran perfect.

    Perhaps you could try turning off Aero before trying to play Crysis. Maybe you don't have enough memory and it crashes without letting you know why.
  27. hey i am also fasing the same problem
  28. i bet it's because you are all using pirate copyies lol
  29. I can play crysis for about 45 min then it crashes. (Every time).

    Could this be a prob with vid drivers. Mine are up to date.

    My system includes

    Asus P4X58D Premium
    Intel Core i7-920 Bloomfield 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core ProcessorCrucial Ballistix Tracer 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
    2 EVGA 512-P3-N871-AR GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 256-bit DDR3 in SLI
    ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler
    ENERMAX Galaxy EVO EGX1250EWT 1250W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready

    Like I said all drivers are current and I have run this in every type of
    compatibilty that is offered. I'm stumped!!
  30. hey im having an issue with installing the editor on my computer. i know that i am doing the installation right but when it starts installing the program gives me a 1310 error and says i dont have access to that directory. if you could help me that would be great.
  31. For those of you wondering, do try to go to Microsoft's website and download the DIRECT X END USER RUNTIME. All Windows versions only ship with the basic needed components. I have a fresh OEM version of Professional, and my download was 60mb! I don't know if it will help, but surely at least some of those components play a role in how Crysis runs. :)
  32. Im getting a alienware laptop and i need to know if i can positively run this game on windows 7. I have 4gb ram, 250 gb harddrive, and runing an i5 processor
  33. Do you think i will be able to run??? my build is

    Intel Duel 3.20GHz, 1gb Ram, nvidia geforce 8400 GS
