Yep :D That's how I felt too! I'm going through at a harder difficulty now.

I really like how the higher difficulty levels don't just make the AI pinpoint-accurate, it removes visual aids (grenade detection, hi-tech bionoculars, etc.). It actually makes it feel so satisfying when you succeed despite the handicaps!

Oh yeah that too! I can generally guess what they're up to though :P Eventually I'll learn what certain vocal cues mean.

I like having localized languages like in Splinter Cell Chaos Theory.

Looks like people who are crazy enuff to try 3-way SLI get way better performance w/out it only on the high res' of 2560x1600...

Multi-GPU Issues [February 09, 2008, 4:51 pm ET] - Viewing Comments

3-Way SLI Having Issues With Crysis on Tom's Games (thanks Ant and Planet Crysis) describes an issue they've found running Crysis under three-way SLI, experiencing better performance with the SLI turned off. NVIDIA has said the issue, which is only in 2560x1600 resolution, is likely a memory issue, and they are working on a fix. Another issue with multi GPU technology is explored in an article on PCGH, which discusses the phenomenon of "micro stuttering" which can cause multiple GPU setups to demonstrate inconsistent intervals between frames, which can nullify the advantage of improved framerates by looking less smooth. They offer a video demonstrating the effect. This problem is exhibited by multi-GPU setups from ATI and NVIDIA, as well as S3's Multichrome. Word is: "Upcoming graphics driver could provide the necessary balancing." Just to round out the topic, there's a new Crossfire vs SLI comparison on t-break using HD3870 and 8800GT cards.

Word is that 3-way SLI is probably least cost-effective way to play a game ever.

Also, "enuff" only cuts out one letter from "enough". Is that one extra letter really worth looking like a goddamn retard?

All this crap just hurts Crysis.

What they should have done was to name Medium as High, and High as Very High, and then name Very High as Ultra or something.

It's a message board, not a proper English class.

And what I did is no different than really when Que spells the word "stuff" his way of "stuph."
And that is the same amount of letters, even -- he ain't even saving on letters.
*shrug*

Though, his spelling is of "stuph" more unique than "enuff"...

Now, for the rest of us:

You're right, it's not a proper English class.  That's why I'm not failing you and calling your parents right now.  You're also correct in that it's no different then how Que spells "stuph", but that doesn't make it any less retarded.  Que and I have talked about this before, he doesn't care and that's fine, but each time he does it I loose a little bit of respect for him.  Whereas I originally thought he was this big Irish guy, I'm now convinced he's a 15 year old myspace cam girl. 

Edited for those of us without the ability to fluently speak in both English and Tard.

As bad as "enuff" is,  I would probably focus more on sentence structure than anything if I really had a problem with D's posting style. You know, if we were really going to dissect it.

Right, but it just reinforces the wrong assumption that you need some sort of super computer to run it.

I just got this game over the weekend and put about an hour into it.  So far I'm liking it.  I can play it at 1680x1050 at medium settings.  I'll need to do a bit more tweaking to get better performance out of it.

I found it much more satisfying to use a lower resolution and bump up the detail settings to high.  The game looks like crap on medium.

I used the lowest widescreen resolution.

I was about to say that I found at medium, the game doesn't look that great.  I will try out your suggestion of using a lower widescreen res and upping the detail.

Honestly I wouldn't want to play it on anything less than an 8800 card. The great visuals are part of the enjoyment.

Well I did some tweaking with the in game settings and some research and I was able to get the game to run smoothly at 1680x1050.  Most of the settings are currently at high, with the exception of the shader quality, water, and shadows which are at medium.  There is some slowdown in sometimes, such as using binoculars and zooming in, but everything else is completely playable and smooth.

I tried it with shaders at high and the game starts to chug.  Everything looks even more gorgeous with the shaders at high (lots of bloom effects and the flora looks really impressive), but the game runs at like 10-15 fps with that, versus about 30-40 fps with the shaders at medium.  It's a reasonable tradeoff, since the game still looks really good.

I am currently using a Geforce 7900 GTX, AMD Athlon X2 4400+ and 2GB of RAM, for anyone who is interested.

Yeah, that's mainly my reasoning.  Well, that and the fact that I don't think I like how they introduce aliens and shit into it.

I picked up Crysis earlier today.

Game doesn't run well at all on HIGH for me. Probably b/c I don't have a double-core processor, I'd guess.

I'm running the game on 1024x768 resolution with ALL settings on Medium. Game looks very good still and runs pretty well.

Action is awesome. Feels a lot like Far Cry, gameplay-wise -- but w/ saving and quicksaving options (finally); much better graphics; much better voice-acting; more intense action; and the new awesome nano-suit abilities.

So far, it's awesome.

I think I was running it at 1240x1068 or something to that extent.  I've got the same video card, an e6400 with 2 gb of ram and whatnot.  It shouldn't be chugging along.  I set everything at medium, too, I think.  I tried it on the max settings at a lower res.  It was unplayable.  buh
