why won't crysis work?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So I built myself a new computer (sig rig) and I installed Crysis, updated it to 1.21, and this is my problem:

The game won't run fullscreen at 1920x1080.

If I'm in-game, I can switch any of the settings without a problem. The moment I select "full screen", it crashes. If I selected "full screen" at a setting lower than 1680x1050, the game will boot up in fullscreen at that resolution. If I selected 1680x1050 or 1920x1080, the game boots up windowed.

I've tried:
- alt + enter
- running the game file with manual resolution changes (from startup menu)

I can't get anything to work.

[edit]: I've also tried running the 32-bit version of the game.

Shouldn't matter. ^

I'm assuming you have the latest drivers. If not, update, if so, try reverting back and see if anything changes. Patch your game up, if you haven't done so already.

I've also had problems with the 64bit version.

OK have some extra time in my hands so decided to right i up.
first go to your Documents, My Games, Crysis folder. There you will see and CFG file that read game open that with Notepad. the go to r_Fullscreen = 0 i guess it will say 0 but you want it to read 1 so it will look like this r_Fullscreen = 1 and here you will see other options like r_Width and r_Height which is for your resolution. Then just save and hopefully that will work.

I've tried with the original version of the game (I have the cd from back in 2008 when the game released), and I've tried with the 1.20 update (and 1.21 extra update).

I tried with older catalyst drivers, and the newest ones (as of January 26th).

I've tried changing it manually in game, and manually out of the game. Thanks theproodnoob for the effort, though what happens is the game attempts to load and it crashes.

I'm currently running it at 1680x1050, which looks nice.... but there's no point to an extreme graphics game which can't run at the resolution my screen is at! This sucks

[edit]: It's working at 1600x900, not 1680x1050. Typo.

Heh yeah I guess everyone does. I've always seen it as a fun game... but poorly coded.

I remember when I first got the game and it was run on an 8800 Ultra with a Q6600... tried throwing it on max settings at 1680x1050... did, not, work, well. Lol. Now I can run it maxed out... but yeh, without being able to play in maxed screen mode, it's a sour feeling playing the game.

I'm looking forward to Crysis 2... I hope it turns out to be fun. Then I can throw my Crysis 1 disc away for good

(I don't own many games... just Crysis 1, Warcraft 3, Diablo 2, Starcraft 2, Call of Duty Black Ops, and Call of Duty MW2.... and I only play SC2 and Black Ops nowadays).

Using DVI. Maybe I'll try HDMI and see if that works lol.
