Crytek continues updates

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.

Hey, for those who do own it and want a little more control over the graphics, here is a link for an external app that'll do just that! Honestly, the only thing I changed was the blur because it used an absurd amount of it, and it was sloppy (unlike C1). This would do until Crytek releases a DX11 patch. http://www.gamespot.com/forums/topic/28334091/crysis-2-advanced-graphics-application-version-1.5?tag=topics%3Btitle

I'm just wondering if they intend to fix also all those bad textures - for a 2011 PC game coming from Crytek that's (to put it lightly) simply unexpected.

...and no word for DX11 yet! Surprise!


Quick tip: For Crossfire users that are experiencing flickering, rename Crysi2.exe to Bioshock.exe for now.

i've been following the flickering issue since launch @ mycrysis.com since i have two Sapphire 6950's... there is NO fix that works for everyone to stop the flickering for multi gpu setups. the thread is 42 pages long...

Quick note: this affects SLI users as well - just a shout-out for the AMD driver bashers out there.

I managed to eventually stop the flickering by renaming the .exe file and runing via Radeon pro-tools and leave v-sync OFF....... however I cant get the darn thing to stop crashing after 5-10 mins without x-fire off! I'm running dual 5970's watercooled (quadfire) and 4ghz overclock.

Gets high 60 fps at 1900x1200 on extreme with xfire on and 35ish with it off.

I think the thing with DX11 it would kill everything out there as the current dx9 version doesnt seem to optimised as for consoles as long as you maintain 30-60fps your ok.

I'd prob get like 10 fps in a crysis 2 dx11 and that with a high end setup.

Poor show from crytek. They should take a leaf out of Just Cause 2 average FPS a groovy 110+ odd maxed out.

I'm disappointed to see no sign of patching up the single player campaign. That nano catalyst bug is a pain in the ass.

Enjoy your chlorine washed out textures and 720P res (is it even 720P I wonder)!
