Tried playing the demo of the first and got some bad screen tearing, sad indeed.

Checked out some of the mods in various vids and I have to say, some of those mods look stunning.

but introduces mouse-lag, making the game unplayable.

crysis 1 with mods is by far the best looking game ATM. it's funny how, in 2007, everyone was bashing on crytek for "poorly" optimizing their code, and the lacking gameplay itself, but now everyone's going back to try the mods with our updated hardware. that game really is a classic, but for the wrong reasons.

crysis 2 is great, but to me, the textures seem overdone and too plasticy. besides the levels are completely linear and don't compare in any way to the original game's sense of freedom. that's just what happens when devs design for consoles. game has to progress linearly in order to stream data at an appropriate rate, it'd be impossible to pre-load an entire level with their 256mb of ram.

battlefield 3 has the same problem. campaign is just a shameless COD-clone with its linear design, you don't even get to use any vehicles(lawl). MP is no different. maps are small and straightforward. they're all basically rectangles, as opposed to the large circles we had in bf2. graphics-wise, the filters just kill the game. alpha gameplay from months ago actually looks better than the game does now. playing with the FXAA hack makes the game look 100x better as well.

What mouse lag? Just turn on triple-buffering and I never notice the mouse lag.

Tell me more about that. Is it a hack that Disables, or Enables FXAA?
(I can guess, of course, but I rather ask smile.gif)
Also, where do I find it?

It all depends on your hardware... I have to admit, Crysis with V-Sync is just one that works that doesn't actually introduce any lag for me... but other games, like Bioshock is just horrible and unplayable... even with Triple Buffering...

My only real fix for this was to go with a 120hz monitor...

Also with BF3 with the FXAA injector, there was a 'slight' chance that punk buster can detect it as a hack... I haven't heard any cases but when you read the instructions, it clearly states that...

Like stated, playing Crysis at a minimum 60FPS and maxed out graphics really is something to behold...

They write that to protect themselves in case Punkbuster does start banning people for it, not because anyone's been banned.
