Default Crysis 2 PC edition OT

Release date: Out now worldwide.

Platforms: PC, 360 and PS3.

Quote:
Game Info: The world has been ravaged by a series of climatic disasters and society is on the verge of total breakdown. Now the aliens have returned, with a full invasion force bent on nothing less than the total annihilation of mankind, starting by trying to rip the heart out of Earth's most iconic city.

In New York, terrifying alien invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city's myriad inhabitants with brutal epidemic speed. The city's systems are in chaos, its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you've never seen it before.

Neither paramilitary law enforcement nor the might of the US military machine can stand against the invaders, and all who choose not to flee are dead men walking. Just to survive in this maelstrom of death will require technology beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen.

One man will inherit that means to survive. One supersoldier, wielding the combat enhancement technology of the future with Nanosuit 2, will make the last stand to save humanity from destruction in the urban jungle that is New York City.


BE STRONG – Take on multiple enemies with Armor mode, mince them with heavy weapons or squash them by kicking cars.

BE FAST – Get to the action quickly, then powerjump, ledgegrab and slide round the environment with amazing agility.

BE INVISIBLE – Use Stealth mode to set traps or hit and run your enemies, or snipe from a concealed position.

BE THE WEAPON – With the Nanosuit, you choose how you want to play.

Key Features:
New York New York: Crysis set the visual benchmark for PC games that still stands today. Crysis 2 will redefine the benchmark on console and PC platforms, shifting their attention to the rich urban jungle of New York City.

This has probably been asked numerous times, but are you able to tweak individual video options in the final build? I broke down and bought the damn thing and you weren't able to in the MP demo. I haven't installed it yet, though. It's sitting in my bag.

Did Crytek said anything about a SP demo?

They have more important things to do, like finishing DX11 and exposing advanced settings in the options.

You could manually try it out by console prompt and then put your final settings mix into config file.

Code:
sys_spec_ObjectDetail=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_Shading=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_VolumetricEffects=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_Shadows=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_Texture=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_Physics=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_PostProcessing=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_Particles=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_Sound=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_Water=1/2/3/4
sys_spec_GameEffects=1/2/3/4

Some info and interesting bits regarding PC version with comparision pictures to illustrate effects/differences. Shows rendering tech in Crysis 2 with perfomance nunmbers and more.

http://crytek.com/sites/default/file...es_final_2.pdf

This quote below shows what I was suspecting considering how jaggy free whole scenery is and blur quite low.

Quote:
Such a technique is quite a novelty in the video game industry and it’s very likely Crytek will release improved versions as it has potential to also be merged with different techniques - for example, it’s currently also combined with Nvidia’s FXAA in “Extreme” spec, in order to improve quality further with sub-pixel accuracy results from post MSAA.
Quote:
Such an approach works by accumulating sub-samples over frames and reprojecting them to the current frame. It should not be confused with “temporal antialiasing” commonly used on 60 fps games that simply do a linear blending and hence have ghosting for every pixel. The Post MSAA approach is very general and allows for a sub-pixel accuracy solution on all platforms at a cost of just 1ms on consoles, and less than 0.2 ms on PCs at 1080p resolutions.
FXAA information.
http://timothylottes.blogspot.com/20...idia-fxaa.html

Quote:
This effort made our lowest specification equal in many aspects and even superior to CryENGINE 2 High specs. The biggest differences from Crysis 1 to Crysis 2 are the vastly improved dynamic lighting and shadowing and highly improved image quality. For this reason, the lowest available spec on PC in Crysis 2 is “High Spec” and the highest spec is “Extreme”.
Quote:
With higher system specs, more samples or high resolutions are used on certain effects like shadows/post processes/MSAA. Certain features get enabled such as rigid body water simulation or vertex displacement for water. On higher PC specs, we naturally find much more lights casting shadows, more particles and higher view distances for all geometries, lights and shadows.
Quote:
The lowest PC spec, “High”, is almost the same as the spec used on consoles, besides per-platform differences, such as different texture formats for render targets and different normal map formats on PS3 due to lack of 3Dc support. PC specs also feature improved texture quality, since we do not use streaming for PC due to the vast memory resources available. Anisotropic filtering is enabled for all specs, while on PS3 it is dynamically adjusted and goes up to 16x anisotropic, and on Xbox 360 it is limited to 4x anisotropic in order to reduce the performance cost.
Quote:
Additionally, the engine supports real dual stereo (also anaglyph mode for debugging), which is likely to be exposed for Crysis 2 in later patches for PC specs.
Quote:
Besides resolution differences and a couple of custom view distances variations across platforms, we achieved an exact platform image color output on all platforms in the final shipped version of Crysis 2.
Multiplatform games usually look “darker” on Xbox 360. This is due to the console hardware performing an additional TV gamma correction step, besides other details, when using gamma correction. Unfortunately this is not a standard; no other hardware does this, so we decided on matching X360 output to PC and PS3 platforms instead.

Thanks, Neb!

Seeing as Crysis 2 is going to push my video card to the limit, it's been a while since I've had to monitor fan speeds. What's a good fan speed adjusting application?

Neb, are You going to make another topic for configs and cvar benchmarks/screens comparison and discussion?
I think it would be better to have one combine topic with only tweaks than merge it with gameplay impressions, walkthroughs, multiplayer talks and screens - they'll just disappear too fast, and there will be too many concurrent topics going on.

Is was hoping you will post something intresting and there it is
I'am doing some tweaks myself and wonder if SSAA is posible?

I will digging into the www for more info as I like to change quite a fw things too.

It looks like the ingame AA does a great job indoors, but it covers to everything.
BTW, pc sys 4? I thought 3 is the max?

It would be practical to have the tweaks and/or links to posts about tweaks in the opening posts of this thread.

Maybe this thread is enough, dunno.

I'll post config I did which should be named "ultra extreme" or such. Ups GI quality, shadowres, 'very high' spec and more for better IQ at expense of perfomance but in a reasonable and apreciable way.

You can check out some of the tweaks I posted and use those you like. Regarding SSAA it dont know.

Some category goes to lvl 4 (atleast shading). If lvl 4 is not present then game falls back onto lvl 3 and so on.

Some great info in there Neb, might have re-awakened my interest in the game actually.

Points to note are the water quality in Extreme mode using displacement mapping on the PC. Looks waaay better than the console version.

Later on they also show some pics of POM aswell, presumably confirming that will be in place for Extreme mode.

This was pretty interesting:

Ripped from a german forum;

aus=off an=on

r_HDRGrainAmount (0/1) = Imagegrain-Effekt aus/an
cl_fov = Field of View (default = 55)
r_motionblur (0/1) = Bewegungsunschärfe
g_skipIntro = Keine Intro-Videos beim Start
hide_hud = HUD komplett ausblenden (Overlays vom Fernglas und Waffen-Konfig-Menü geht weiterhin)
r_PostMSAA = Post-MSAA (0=aus)
r_hdrvignetting (0/1) = Vignette aus/an
r_vsync (0/1) = Vsync aus/an
cl_bobHud 0 = HUD wackelt nicht

Neb, do I need to make an autoexec to make (all of) your settings to work?

One interesting thing with it being DX9 is that ATI SSAA might work.

Create a file named autoexec.cfg (extension has to be cfg). Put all the commands in there.

Also config tool released. Allows for easy custom settings modification, use of MSAA, disable/enable edge AA and more.

why pay someone to do advanced game options, when the community will do it for you?



......just like High Res textures!

What's with that MSAA? Its their MSAA or what? Because normal MSAA should work on deffered.

BTW Dennis turned off everything except 4x MSAA and got astonishing results.

PC settings comparison. AA on Extreme is great.
