    Here is some footage taken at a Nvidia convention discussing and showing DX11 re Crysis 2. The shots aren't really that clear but it's nice to know it's on it's way... (many of the community believe it will in todays patch. Let's hope so!)

    Yup it's around 70mb, as for the number, not sure. So far no explanation has been given. One other little 'titbit' is that the advanced graphic options are stage one. Further updates are forthcoming eventually resulting in DX11. The game looks better already IMO. Dx9 has been pushed as far as can be and the latest optimisation of SSAO makes it look even better.

    Dx9 pushed to the max!

    Oh and the reason the patch is numbered 1.8 is that instead of releasing patches 1 at a time they've released them all together so to speak.
    Since the 1.8 patch if you find your autoexec now doesn't work place spaces like this:

    g_skipIntro = 1

    This is instead of the original way which was:

    g_skipIntro=1

    Enjoy.

    Hi Hulk,
    the latest patch can be found in two ways (just for future ref). You can either navigate to your 'Bin 32' folder found in the actual Crysis 2 folder ( C: Drive/Program files/Electronic arts/Crytek/Crysis 2/bin 32)
    Inside you'll find the Crysis 2 exe and Crysis 2 'launcher'. Click the launcher to update.

    You can also try the official site found here: http://www.mycrysis.com/

    On this occasion though and just for ease you can find the latest 1.8 patch here: Patches and Fixes: Crysis 2 v1.8 Patch - Demo Movie Patch Download Section - GamersHell.com
    Release notes for the patch can be found a few posts back from this one.

    Crytek is very close to release with the new graphic upgrades. See this page for screenshots and download links (which don't work yet).
    It looks like there will be two packs, one for DX11 with tessellation and a high res' texture pack which Crytek say's needs a graphics solution with at least 1GB of onboard Vram.

    I still maintain this hasn't been written post release and was actually removed from the game before it shipped.... why? simple... make the console version appear to be on par with PC and the console fans buy it thinking they've got one over us, had the PC looked way better (which it will now) then the golden cow of console sales would have been quicker to bitch about PC looking that much better and Ea would have more likely sold far less copies on the console platforms.

    It's a tactic I believe is becoming far more common than many companies would like to let on, just look at the vast array of console ports that have been deliberately hobbled to perform badly (GTA4 is a prime example) or look console grade or delayed for years.

    There's a lot of big companies want PC to die as a platform so they can feed us with overprice console games, simply because we refuse to spend £50 on one game, refuse to pay fees for the right to play online (MMO subscriptions aside obviously) or have dedicated servers and LAn modes, PC users expect far higher quality on a vast arrange of hardware... consoles all have just a few minor variations to components over 5-6 year period making it VERY easy and cheap to get the same performance for everyone, yep that's right it's all about the buck, sure theres a few that put PC first... where it should always be, but thats bucking the trend.

    Down to sales figures in much the same way all the very best TV shows are cancelled due to stats that have little real world accuracy to the total viewers... how many times do we see epic Tv shows cancelled yet utter trash reality shows run for nearly a decade, it's the same with games, till people wake up a realise they are being shafted with pretty but shoddy overpriced games that can be finished in a day, that have terrible online modes (Looking at you COD MW2 and Black Ops) and utter lack of anti-cheat protection, until we vote with our pockets and stop following marketing ploys and hype, we are all responsible for letting them get away with it.
