try turning off AF in the ice level. It makes it smoother.
That's a bug I saw midway through the game, where you're protecting an infantry unit, right before the tanks. I restarted the level and it didn't happen again.Originally posted by: Pugnate
It is like that went through the least optimizing. There were bugs in that sequence, like aliens not exploding when hitting the ground, that prevented the game from continuing.The last 20-30 minutes really affected how things flowed, it was noticeably chunky during that stage.
That's interesting... my system chugged with ice and I was using 1680x1050.Originally posted by: ZappDogg
Yup, sure did. I did some tests on the demo, and it was mostly the 1680x1050 resolution behind it...would still do it with everything set to medium.Originally posted by: skace
Does the ice effect on objects kill anyone elses FPS? I mean from like, perfectly smooth to 1fps instantly the second you see anything frozen?
I'm running 1280x720 with SLI 8800GTs, 8GB of memory and a Q6600. The second I see ice my game completely dies. I think there is a bad driver or a bad configuration that causes this to happen but I haven't had a chance to research it yet. I originally turned my settings down from Very High to High, but it still does it. I'm not lowering my settings anymore when VH runs perfectly smooth everywhere else, this has to be a misconfiguration or a bug issue.Originally posted by: Imp

how large is the multiplayer base? i was in the beta and really enjoyed power struggle, so i hope there are a decent # of online players
haha.The only time it got a little slower was when WW3 broke out on the flight deck.
lol i dont see why people put up a fit about this, when ur concentrating on playing you spend hardly any attention about scenery.. but i guess i have low graphics standards which is good otherwise u will have to spend big money to get the best looksOriginally posted by: videogames101
dude, you NEED to enable AA, those screenshots like wicked jagged, lol...
VTOL level is the exact point I set my graphics to medium.Originally posted by: Dainas
Great game, nice and playable (ultra/8ax anis/1600x1200) until it lulls you into a false sense of security. The game's difficulty tends to skyrocker right at the same time as the fps bomb, not being one of those games where somehow you can still aim at 20-25fps. As such obviously a lot of online lying to boost epeen going on, because your just not going to beat the game in hard on any current system without setting visuals to fugly.
I beat the original Far Cry loosing few lives mostly due to tripping over my own grenades. Crysis is easy on normal, then past halfway it becomes more attune to trying to survive at the bottom of a blender. Sporadic choppiness and enemies just rushing at you from every angle; Die reload die reload die reload over and over.
