Okay, let me get this straight...... (and I am very calm )

DX10 card, DX11 game. DX11 game doesn't have DX10 mode. How will it possibly run in DX10 mode then?

It would be forced to run in DX9 mode, which most games still have for lower end systems, assuming there is no DX10 option (such as DiRT2). Since there is no DX11 since the card can't handle it. And if the game doesn't support DX10, then it clearly can't run in DX10 mode either.

You guys are seriously making things too hard.

DX11 card, DX11 game, you get DX11
DX10 card, DX11 game, you get DX10 or DX9 (depends on if DX10 is in the game)

It's pretty common knowledge that dx11 is compatible with dx10 cards. Dx10 cards can use dx11, they just can't use tesselation because their hardware is lacking. Take WoW for example. It has an experimental dx11 codeline, but dx10 cards can play it. If you have a gx 280 you can still benefit from all the dx11 features in WoW.

No DX11?

From Fudzilla

"PC version of Crysis 2 gets more fixes
Crytek continues to address a number of issues that have caused problems for players of the PC version of Crysis 2. While we continue to hear of issues with PC users that are having problems activating Crysis 2 on the PC, the latest update does not seem to fix this issue; however, the work around of re-entering your multiplayer key from within the game does seem to work for many.

The latest patch addresses the USB headset issues with some brands. The most drastic of the updates addresses the auto-aim complaints by removing the feature completely. Crytek claims that the decision was made to remove auto-aim by the overwhelming feedback from players. New cheat detection has been put in place to level the playing field, according to Crytek.

Many issues with the servers and server browsers have been addressed and fixed. This includes the server browser displaying incorrect ping information, joining matches that never start, speed improvements to text-based chat support, and the console has been re-enabled.

While the release of the PC version of Crysis 2 has been a bit bumpy, the game continues to get stronger as the patches have been released to address various issues. With the latest patch we think the title is now currently very playable

Is the patch 29th now? Will it fix flixkering CF? It's fine using profiles but it lowers fps compared to the crysis 2 caps!
