[myCrysis] Crysis 2: No SandBox3 editor, no advanced graphics config, no DX10/DX11! - Page 17

If you're pissed about Crysis 2 but are still itching for an FPS you should really give Bulletstorm a try. It's so much fun you'll forget what a nanosuit is. Also they've given the PC version a lot of love and it shows.

Lets just face it Crysis 2 has been developed for the consoles and the PC is getting the scraps.All we saw so far is a proof of that and what did Crytek do to keep PC community from what is happening now ? NOTHING !!!
just think about it , it would take just couple of screenshots .. hell even a statement or hint of what's to happening to PC version , why would they stay silent and face people dropping their pre-orders if one nod would cease all the doubt.
Crytek has nothing for us , be prepared that looks of the demo is what we get PERIOD.
With that said i hope i'm wrong.......... i really do ........

Didn't someone say that DX10/11 were locked out in the Beta and demo? If it's just locked out, then it's possible that many effects were indeed implemented. They can properly implement DX11 and strip all the files and lock out whatever options from the menu if they so desired.

Not saying that DX11 will be properly implemented but if the final game comes with DX10, there's a good chance it can still kick the console version's ass.

Now look at the GTX 590. Crytek strikes a deal with nvidia. Nvidia pours money into Crytek's bank account. Crytek releases Crysis 2 on a date coinciding with the release of the GTX 590. Crytek says that they will release a DX11 patch later (possibly on the same day). Most likely to coincide with the release of the 590 (they cannot be positive that the 590 will release on the very same day).

Why would Nvidia pour such money into Crytek if Crytek were not going to do something to actually make use of the 590? If it is just a crappy console port, a GTX 260 could probably max the damn thing.

Just using some logic and reason here. Not getting my hopes up either way.

What the hell are you talking about? They've given the PC version a lot of love? Well then explain to me why the game doesn't work well with 16:10 resolutions, why there's shadowing problems around objects, why there's 16bit texture problem, why the FOV value is not for PC and has to be tweaked, why there's a FPS cap? I had to wander around web for an hour or so to find solution, trying to edit encrypted .ini files to fix the problems. It was a nightmare.

They've given no love or whatsoever to PC, this pile of shiz is suffering from "acute consolitis".

Why do you think so many pre orders were cancelled? Crytek screwed themselves over with the PC community with this horrible release.
I wonder where did all the nvidia money went to, since I am sure the main reason they were interested was DX11.

Notice how much better the PC clips are compared to the console ones? I know this isn't indicative of the final PC version, but this goes against the leaked beta. Although it was my assumption that DX10 or 11 shouldn't be that much of a gap visually
And like pioneer said, most of us here on OCN want Crysis to be that standard when it comes to graphics, because the original one was. Graphics aren't everything, but this is the sequel to the game that made everyone's rig kneel in pain

I won't cancel my preorder just yet, but TBH I will be somewhat disappointed if Crysis 2 doesn't set the standard for graphics yet again.

BTW, this is what Cryengine 3 is really capable of, let's hope we get even a little bit of this fidelity

Did you hear about the leak? What makes you think it was 'locked' when there was not even a DX10/DX11 folder? It's just the same as Crysis 1: it's natively coded in DX9. The leak proved that.

What's the difference between DX10 and DX9? In terms of visuals, there is pretty much none. Did you play Crysis 1? Then you should know that modding the config could get you the same 'very-high' visuals on DX9.

A DX11 patch? A patch. Come back to reality. It won't change anything. If they should change something, it should be the textures, the Parallax occlusion mapping and the water shader. In the leak I played, let's say that those were crap compared to C1. Crysis 1 worked really well on DX9/DX10, hell I don't even see why they should include DX11.

The leak was better in terms of visuals than the consoles. But it didn't 'wow' me, like it did with C1. They simply didn't keep up with their reputation. (Well, in fact, they ruined their reputation since C2 wasn't well received for Xbox360/PS3 players because of the choppy FPS/gameplay.) That is what disappoints most of us. Basically they forgot the PC community. Crytek is all on money now.

Now, there isn't a lot of chance the GTX590 coming out will do any good. The GTX590 needs to be released anyway; Nvidia, I think, is just doing that to answer the hype. Check myCrysis, the official screenshots from the game that Crytek took themselves. It's exactly the same graphics we saw in the leak. Like I said before, one proof that shows us the leak was probably the final release is that they coded the menu to work with the PC. There was three configs; gamer, advanced and hardcore. Why the hell would they have worked on those three configs if they were to be replaced by an advanced graphic config? Remember, it was last edited January 13th.
