    Strange as it works fine for me... Are you sure your placing in the correct folder?

    yea, even checked the autolog thing and it has changed the settings, looks visually the same in regards to motion blur and smudgey fx, I'll give it a try with this linked app on the off chance it's a newer build, but I did try when it first came out.

    EDIT:
    Ok this tool version is working for me now, although without as much blurryness, theres a very distinct shimmer unless Edge AA is used.

    That's settings I'm using for best quality... but as I say its shimmering on some static objects

    Re: Crysis 2-Prophets Journey

    Glad to hear you got at least some resolve.. Another tip we've found is to set the FPS to 33 (regardless of your pc build) and this seems to give a sharper/smoother quality. Hopefully it won't be too long before we get the advanced settings 'ingame' (maybe next week?) I know some features are being tweaked for certain cards but I guess we will have to wait and see.
    Another thing that is slightly bugging me is the fact that driver support from AMD is almost nil. Ok they released the new CAP for crossfire guys but I'm pretty sure we haven't seen a driver that's yet been optimised for Crysis 2. Luckily the game runs pretty darn well but it would be nice to see AMD actually spending time on it..

    For those wondering where the Cryengine 3 SDK is, here is an open letter from Cevat Yerli:

    Well that certainly silences the many critics of Crysis2 (Of which I was one, despite buying it after playing the demo that didn't hugely impress me) in regards to modding tools etc... Things are looking up for the long term of the games multiplayer now, now if they can just get DX11 Tesselated texturing done for the next big patch...

    Did many of you see the tech video that shows the director engine for making machinma? looks one of the biggest reasons to get excited about the tools if you ask me.

    Re: Crysis 2-Prophets Journey

    Nope I didn't watch that.. I'll check it out later thanks. Crytek know that for maximum longevity then releasing the SDK was really the only way to go I mean look at Crysis and Crysis Warhead, still going strong.

    Well this is patch week and although I don't think we will see any DX11 features yet (the inclusion of POM (Parrallax Occlusion mapping) would be a start) hopefully a few of the annoying bugs will be sorted.

    Re: Crysis 2-Prophets Journey

    Highwayman try popping this command at the top of the autoexec:

    DumpCommandsVars

    You should see a difference with a less blurry picture..

    Just remember to use crysis2launcher.exe not crysis2.exe to get the update automatically.

    Re: Crysis 2-Prophets Journey

    Hmm would seem like a fleecing operation then? unless they poured the same amount of work into it that Bad Co Vietnam did, ie maps and weapons and new gameplay tactics etc, but from the video clips it just looks like they took levels from single player that were already about 80% suitable for multi anyway and probably just popped in some barriers to block out the sides of map, if this is indeed the case I'll just wait on the editor and remake it manually from there.


    As for console owners, well they willl have to bite the bullet since they cant make maps can they...lol

    Re: Crysis 2-Prophets Journey

    I think only the Shipyard map is new and as you say the rest are from SP. Why Crytek are choosing to release this DLC before fully fixing the game is poor form and I would imagine this is more to do with EA than Crytek themselves. It's no surprise then to note that the pc community is rather unimpressed (to say the least).
    Luckily for me I don't have too many bugz whilst playing either SP or MP although what bugz there are do need addressing especially before they try to drag even more money out of us..

    wasn't the shipard the bit outside that scientists house on single player? anyway if they added a PERK-FREE mode for multi along with larger multiplayer maps (at least on the scale of the large ones of crysis wars) with vehicles, then i'd slap cash at it...otherwise...skip

    Not running on a intel video chip... think even the newest on-die graphics by intel would struggle to get past 15 fps on low detail.

    Having viewed it again it does look like the map found in 'Lab Rat' with some ships or ship added..
