Crysis, how to set for BEST graphics - Page 4

post #31 of 35
I haven't tried it, but isn't the Rygel addition just textures? meaning, it shouldn't effect FPS directly but just VRAM/RAM use?

Larger textures - more work for the GPU, more bandwidth utilized, more RAM (not just Vram), so yes, lower FPS

More RAM/VRAM used, but I thought so long as you had the necessary amount, it wouldn't translate to that much of an FPS loss? It seems odd that the mod he added had no impact when the textures did.

Well... I can find some logic there, but if the results were not posted, I would have never known.

The mod does mainly color tweaks - changes some shaders, I believe. It doesn't have its own detail meshes, or hi-def textures. So it just edits the shaders, which are there anyway. Even if the new shaders are more complex (which is not necessary for better visuals), on graphic cards which are not shader limited, it shouldn't affect FPS.
I personally lose 2-3 FPS with RealLifesis, but my GPU is waaay more shader-limited than his monster

At least that where logic gets me Might be wrong though.

Had to remove them anyway it runs fine when its running, bottoming out at 35 with everything maxed out, but its started crashing ALL the time, every 20 minutes or so lol

Reinstalled and it stopped crashing until a specific mission wouldn't load, then it kept crashing again, turned all settings down and it continues to crash :@
