Crysis Demo

It's a spectacular directx 10 Demo with both the 32- and 64-bit
executables, but the 64-bit runs slightly smoother on my rig; everything
on high, no AA -- framerate varies between 30-50 FPS.

If you did a default install, it will be the file "crysis.exe" in this
directory:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis SP Demo\Bin64

(the 32-bit version is in the "Bin32" folder)

Re: Crysis Demo
Careful, this is not the experience a lot of us are having with this demo.
Many of us with hight end rigs are not able to run at very high settings in
DX10 and 64 bit especially with SLi. You need to make sure you have the
169.04 driver and keep your eyes open for more updates to the driver over
the next week or two. Also Nvidia forums have some other suggestions to help
out. The game does look great, however.

Read what I said, I said "high", not "very high", and I added "NO"
antialiasing.... and I run this in 1280x1024. Additionally, SLI does
not work so far with this demo with even the 169.04 drivers.

Re: Crysis Demo
Lucky you! Even afterI upgraded to the beta Nvidia driver 169.4 I get
nothing but a black screen and a program that does not respond. I am
using Vista Home Premium 64bit and I have a Evga 8800 GTS video card.
Back to Unreal Tournament. :-(

Re: Crysis Demo
I would try 163.69 but I don't have it. :-( I just downloaded 169.09
and still get the same black screen and no sound.
