I smell something close to what Age of Conan did... Oh ya... it has Dx10.

*Some time later at launch*

Were sorry DX10 has been disabled and may be added in the future again. Thank you.

*RAGGGEEEE*

-------------------------------

Any Rate I still smell console port-oh-hoy!

this game looks fine in dx9 , some of you guys need to **** about it not being dx11 .. get a life ?

dx9 is easy to code , looks barely different from dx11 ... Gives everyone a chance to play , even with older graphics cards ..

buy it or dont .. Whinging about dx11 just makes u look like an idiot , crysis 1 and warhead never had dx11 and nobody cared ?

If this game was in dx11 , extreme graphics like everyone wants ... it would not be playable to 80% of us .. and definatly not on console , did u expect them to make 2 versions ? 1 for console 1 for pc ? not happening ... same goes for every console port , they dont make a dedicated pc game for that title they just port it . IT WOULD COST TWICE AS MUCH

simple as that my friends .

Increase graphic quality so a few hundered thousand pc gamers can play ? or reduce graphics to dx9 so the whole world can enjoy this game , either on xbox , ps3 or pc ... even if their specs arent great they can still get playable frame rates .. makes everyone happy not just the ones that want dx11 and pre renderd style graphics that require 2x580's .

use ur brain , crytek know what they are doing ... and at the end of the day theres a few crouds to please so crytek had to balance this one out , making 1 crows happy and not the other will cause the same rubbish thats going on now with dx11 and it will never end for them .

i kinda feel sorry for crytek , they made an amazing game .. no1 appreciates it because its in dx9 ?

Signed up to say this has got to be one of the dumbest things ive read.

Having DX11 as an option WOULD NOT affect anyone NOT using dx11. are you retarded? If it had dx11, everyone who wants it can enjoy it, and those who dont, dont have to use it. EVERYBODY WINS. Your just so narrow minded to see that theres no reason to limit features just because some people cant use them. how the **** would adding dx11 make it unplayable for anyone who uses dx9?

Its called DIFFERENT GRAPHICS LEVELS AND SETTINGS you retard. Just like how cry2 has HARDCORE, ADVANCED, GAMER. You can choose dx9, dx 10, or dx11. The game SCALES with hardware. You can still use dx9 all you want, but those who want to have better features can choose to use dx10 or dx11.

Seriously, what an idiot. go back to school.

ps - it doesnt cost twice as much to have PC with better graphics. Its called make it for PC first, then scale it down for the ****ty consoles. Thats how its supposed to work, and results in a more successful PC game.

ahahahaha nerd wars engage!!

Someone's making an alt account just to harass

Honestly if I were the person I am, you know cuz I totally am, In Crysis, I never liked the gameplay, just like the ridiculous high quality graphics at the time, the fact that Crysis 2 after 4 years is no better then Crysis 1, other then a bit more detailed post-processing, everything else for the most part was dumbed down.

Ya I'd be a bit pissed since Crysis 1 was aimed at being the High-End graphics and it made its mark doing so, having said that and Crysis having a name out there now, switching gears and turning into a console port isn't acceptable, as it completely changed the market of which Crysis 1 achieved its reputation from.

For Crytek our support at the time was only a stepping stone to a big ol' slap in the face, seems to be what 90% of developers do now, they go where the market is hot and make money. Can't blame them, they want money, but still stabbing the original consumers in the back due to the change in market focus.

(I think the hope was to introduce a game with such stupid high graphics it would have the same effect it did on cards at the time in 2007 or w/e and max fps on top settings would be like 15-20)
We just want to see something that crushes current technology, and you can't run it max unless you have Quad-580's or something.

Just one thing: Metro 2033. Came out on PC and the Xbox 360

Ever heard ? In the PC version you can choose between DX9, DX10 or DX11 rendering paths. Does not exclude anybody from playing.

DX11 didn't exist back in 2007, but it did use DX10, which was not only new technology, but one of the main selling points... you clearly showed your ignorance there.


Anyway, your argument is so flawed it makes looking at your sig rig ironic. Why do you need such a fast CPU (overclocked too) and Crossfire 6970's (unlocked 6950's and overclocked too) ?

You're not planning on playing mainly DX9 games with those cards, are you ?

Crytek made a reputation for moving the industry forward. Somebody has to do it.

If nobody did, you'd still be running DX7 or whatever.

Properly used DX11 brings a lot of benefits over DX9, including those of DX10 and DX10.1, which brought better lighting, but since only AMD/ATI cards supported it, it wasn't developed in games. And tessellation.

You have no idea of what moves the industry forward.

Doing a game in DX11 does not exclude making it also in DX10 and DX9; there is a market for innovation, you know ?

Of course you know. You're not using Windows XP, nor an Athlon X2 6000+, nor a Radeon X1900XTX. Hey, I've heard it's a pretty good DX9 card. Why not use two in Crossfire? Should be enough for you.

Rightio , All im going to say in return is i have played the game and i love it .. dx9 or dx11 it doesnt really make a difference to me .. Its not my fault they didnt add dx11 i guess im just accepting that fact and looking at the brighter side of things whatever , go back to where u came from .

I understand they can code the game in dx11 then scale it down for consoles though it didnt happen that way so just accept it , arguing with me dont fix nothing ..

p.s where in school do they teach you about direct x coding ?

everything u just said , i already know so dont feel like youve taught me something . I was just stating the game is in dx9 get over it , be happy .

crytek had to think about who was playing it with what hardware , im sure they had enough feedback from the last 2 games and obviously chose this path where everyone can enjoy the game cos 90% of people couldnt even get above 20fps with high end rigs back then .. If the game was made how u all want it , i doubt you would even get playable frame rates .

use ur brain.

yea it looks OK in dx9 but... I get confused thinking im playing Fear2, alot. Im sure I could get 150+ fps in Fear2 but im averaging about 55 in crysis2. I imagine when dx11 and 4xAA are available, I will be getting 25 frames. What does all this mean ?.... It means Crytek went to nvidia behind the curtain and said "we will design a game, that will trounce your new hardware, that way when the 600 series comes out, we will help you promote it, now please invest in our game"!.. viola. I know its a vicious cycle, but I didnt become a pc gamer to save a buck.

^that's because they WANTED to play the game on very high. why do you have to play the game on very high if ur computer is slow? the original system requirement for crysis was a Geforce 6800 GT and some pentium 4. now we know that min. requirement are usually ridiculous, but still, it is possible to run the game using the min requirement at the lowest res.

if you have a slow system, then don't turn graphics to very high and then complain about lags.
why do they have very high as an option? for 1337 people like us with fast systems to enjoy!
again, you said that 90% of people with high-end rig can't get more than 20fps? that's because they were trying to play a future-proofed game on max settings. turn the settings down, and those 8800 ultras will do fine!

the min requirement for crysis 2 is a 8800 GT. that's DX10 card so i have no idea why they are using DX9. i blame that on stupid windows xp.
