Hey Clark,

no apology needed the above is simply my opinion. I run the game with a custom autoexec I made for Crysis 2 which changes the field of view, I could send you that if need be.
Perhaps more to your liking is this config tool which allows you to set up the game to how you want it to run:

MyCrysis Forums - Crysis 3 CVar Configurator

The other thing I'd suggest is try running process explorer and see what vram your using. This game eats it for breakfast and if your running with high AA and AF you might be using over 2GB of vram. Try backing it off and see how you go. I could actually run the game at High settings but with only 1GB of Vram I'd be running out of the stuff very quickly. As it is I run at medium settings using the FXAA setting for AA as well as only running only 2x AF and I'm using almost all of it.

Tweakguides is also writing a set up guide for the game which will prove invaluable I'm sure, I'll post it as soon as he releases.

The game does seem a little dark and I'm going to check on which Cvars need to changing to lighten things up a tad. I'll be able to add this to the autoexec file and will let you know once it's ready.. :)

I'd also check the above forum I posted the config tool from. Others have been seeing the same issue and Crytek are aware of these issues and hopefully they'll be addressed soon.

:)

Edit: I just noticed your card and the 4GB of Vram it carries which kinda shoots down my theory above. Checkout the forum anyway perhaps it's a driver issue like you said and will hopefully be sorted soon.

I'll also include the autoexec I use. Just pop it into your main Crysis 3 folder and that's it.

Ok I've included a new autoexec with the gamma change. I've set it to 2 but that might be too bright so if you need to change it the open the exec with notepad and change it to something like 1.5 (1 is default) I've just tried it with my set up and 2 does seem a bit too bright. Anyway see how you go on. :)

Oh and you might need to reboot after playing the game as the gamma change will effect your desktop too.

Edit:
I've found that 1.25 is just about right for my system at least but see how you go. Like I said above just use notepad to open the autoexec, change the value and save.
:)

Wow, a lot of info, I will go through it, thanks.

The game ran fine as far as graphics. It doesn't hesitate, and never locked up until this part, which I think is the end. But it locks up when probably a video transition is taking place, the way they do when they go from one large section to another. Maybe the area you highlighted (the final Boss fight) is where this is.

I will be playing the game over from the beginning with a higher difficulty and maybe it will play differently. I like to do that and do more exploring, which makes it more enjoyable.

Do you see any type of health meter in the HUD? All I get is the warning when health is low and I can't seem to keep track of when I am being injured. Maybe I missed it... I will also check and make sure which patch I am running. Seeing the game has only been out a short time, your Patch 1.1 comment got me thinking.

I do like the fact you can use the Ceph weapons... :cool:

When you open the game and look at the list eg options, multiplayer ect you'll see a link to a manual. If you check that out it tells you what the HUD contains. Also check out the tutorial, even though I've played plenty of Crysis I found it quite handy as it taught me some new features to this particular game.

Have you tried the autoexec file?

I have started the game over with higher difficulty and Very High graphics. Since I have now been through the game and have some understand of what to expect, I have time to look around and appreciate the graphics and actual game play. Much better for me the second time through.

I did play the tutorial, but I don't remember the Bow being one of the weapons, but I only did the basic tutorial. Shooting the arrows long distances seems a little hard since I can't seem to follow the arrows flight and can only guess as to where it will land. Probably more practice will help. A better understanding of the graduations on the sight would be a good thing. And maybe if I remember to hold the right mouse button down after I shoot, I will be able to see the arrows better.

I will look into the HUD to see if any other options are available. I got used to watching the health status in Borderlands, so I miss it now.

I have not tried any changes yet, but the graphics upgrade seems to have helped with the darkness issue.

Thanks kemical, I will post back if I make any breakthroughs.

I did a screenshot of the bow just to show what to line up for a perfect kill. If you hold the right mouse button down it will zoom the view with left click being the fire button. Press E to negate the operation if need be..
Bow sight.jpg

You'll notice in the screenshot I've arrowed a little white line. The very tip of the white line is where the arrow will land. (I'm playing on the hardest settings so have even less crosshairs than usual). Basically where ever you point that white tip at is where the arrow will hit, bodies, heads or even the Ceph.. :)

This screenshot shows the draw strengths:
Draw weight.jpg

The higer the draw strength the further the arrow will fly or the thicker armour it will penetrate. Note the different arrows which all have their uses. If you get enemy standing in water use the electrical head and watch them fry. It's definitely worth experimenting if you get the chance..

Below is a list of the fixes that we’ve implemented in Crysis 3 as part of our latest Patch. We hope you’ll continue to enjoy the game, and assure you we’ll keep working hard to iron out any issues that arise down the line.

Latest PC Patch Notes:

• Fixed after-match award dog tags from not loading from the profile correctly
• Fixed root cause of some graphics driver crashes
• Fixed particle shader causing black squares/broken shading on some graphics cards
• Fixed shadering issue with underwater fog
• Fixed issues with non-default controls for weapon customization
• Fixed some issues with binding non-default vehicle controls

I was finally allowed to finish the game with the new patch. I did, however, have to restart the last mission or it would still crash.

Still unimpressed?

Also depending on your resolution you should try running the game at very high settings with that card you have. Just don't pile on the AA or AF.

I've now uploaded a new autoexec to the original post that carried the previous one. This now has the gamma set to 1.1 which seems about right. I've also set the FOV (field of view) to 80% which is the max Crysis 3 will go to. I've also included a setting to which stops the annoying splash screens and gets you straight to the game page. As before just pop it into your main Crysis 3 folder and job done.

Edit: Just got the game to finish in Windows 8. I went through the same process I did with Windows 7. I uninstalled the Nvidia graphic drivers and rebooted, then reinstalled them in customized mode and did not allow the 3D components to be installed.

Maybe it wasn't the update that worked in Windows 7, but involved the 3D components..

When I was having problems with Crysis 3 in Windows 7 I loaded it in Windows 8. Again, it seemed to play fine, even at Very High on the graphics. But with the update, it froze in Windows 8 at the very same place it was freezing with Windows 7 without the update...

Not sure exactly why...., but again, it is not the game play, but the video transitions where you have no control after defeating the Alpha Ceph.

I will try to post this in the forum you linked for the Crysis forum, but it took them a week to get my registration e-mail to me, so I don't have much hope....

Oh so you have the glasses? Cool.. Shame it won't run the last scene though. You aught to post in the forum anyway and let them know perhaps?

No, no glasses here, but the 3D components are the default install option for the Nvidia drivers. That is why you have to do a custom install to exclude them. You may be able to uninstall them in Programs and features, but I did not try it that way.

I have posted it in the other forum on a thread about the problem. We will see if anyone agrees.....

I am enjoying the game more. I keep running across things I did not know before... And it is running fine in Very High graphics.

It's a while since I last had an Nvidia card (8800 series) although I was tempted this time around as I'm replacing my aging 5870 come April.
I'm finding that if I kill everything that moves, do secondary objectives as well as finding all the pick ups my SP will last around 10hrs+ which isn't too bad for s shooter. Kinda pales against the 900hrs i played skyrim though... :D

The Crysis 3 multiplayer beta ended today. So if you can't get into the servers you now know why.. :(
Kemical,
if and only if you have a few minutes at some point, could you possible direct to some decent but, not high learning games that you might at one time have tried? I do want to try some on my laptop but, I am not real good a choosing good games. I bought a Sony 3 Play Station. I got one game I really thought I would like, and I really hate. Racing at Indie 500. Even the real drivers have an easier than the game. But, I did get the battle of Britain and have done well at that. Maddens Pro football can be either fun or a downright knockdown drag out game, that may well leave you exhausted. Thanks.

P.S. I am saving up for an ssd for Christmas, along with and external portable. Guess that should round me out pretty good. Oh yes, where can I find some good info on Skype? For setting it up I mean. Thanks. I really am enjoying the tile interface. And I really question whether or it's must to have a touch screen for a laptop or desktop. I think the mouse is just fine. Thanks again for all the great things you guys do. I know you don't all the praise you should. But, I a great job when I see one.

Crysis 3 All-Platform Patch 1.3 Notes

Crysis 3 Patch 1.3 is on the verge of being live! This is an all-platform patch, although not all platforms will update at the same time, and patch notes vary slightly accross the board. Below you can find the full patch notes.

Ahead of this patch release, we also conducted a Q&A with the developers on some of the key updates found in this patch, you can find all of their answers in the news article here:
http://secure.mycrysis.com/news/crysis_ ... es-and-q-a

Multiplatform

  • Reduction in bandwidth usage
  • Fixed issue where other player's weapons may not be visible when joining the game
  • The "Scout" perk now saves progress correctly
  • Fix for rip & throw items occasionally entering a state where players cannot interact with them
  • Fix for Relay not capturing correct if the carrier is within the cap zone when the friendly relay is returned
  • End of round audio now works correctly

Kemical,
if and only if you have a few minutes at some point, could you possible direct to some decent but, not high learning games that you might at one time have tried? I do want to try some on my laptop but, I am not real good a choosing good games. I bought a Sony 3 Play Station. I got one game I really thought I would like, and I really hate. Racing at Indie 500. Even the real drivers have an easier than the game. But, I did get the battle of Britain and have done well at that. Maddens Pro football can be either fun or a downright knockdown drag out game, that may well leave you exhausted. Thanks.

P.S. I am saving up for an ssd for Christmas, along with and external portable. Guess that should round me out pretty good. Oh yes, where can I find some good info on Skype? For setting it up I mean. Thanks. I really am enjoying the tile interface. And I really question whether or it's must to have a touch screen for a laptop or desktop. I think the mouse is just fine. Thanks again for all the great things you guys do. I know you don't all the praise you should. But, I a great job when I see one.
Games is a difficult one as their so subjective. What I like isn't necessarily what you'll like ect..
So it really depends on what type of games you like to play.. If your haven't played that many then perhaps it might be better if you look for demo's first. These will cost you nothing and you'll get an idea of what you like and dislike.
Google is probably your best bet here and I found this site straight away:

PC Game Demos | PC Gamer

Skype is pretty straight forward to set up and their own web site is probably best for info ect. Check out the link here:

Thanks I will look more into games and see what I can find. Now on Skype since I know no one personally who uses it. By chance could you? When get it up I would like to test it, so I know it works. Thanks. Also, what is the eventual deal with Skype, messaging, and mail? That really is not 100% clear to me.
