Hey. Thank you! This fixed my 24Hz problem! Using Catalyst 10.3 Preview btw.
This fixed the issue for me on an Nvidia card, and on a friends 4870.
Crysis Warhead only displaying at 24hz via HDTV
Hi, just wanted to say that after enabling/disabling resolutions, trying to force refresh rate & googling for hours I found out that changing my DVI to HDMI adapter from the ATI standard one worked. I tried a 24pin DVI to hdmi adapter (sold cheaply on ebay) & without doing anything else the game started at 1920x1080 @50Hz instead of 24Hz. Pros. game playes sweet on my Samsung 55" hdtv Cons.you lose the ATI HD audio so i had to connect via my optical connection. (strangly I got this DVI to HDMI adapter from a Nvidia card that i previously owned)
Cool, glad to see you got it working. However, if you want sound over hdmi, try setting a custom resolution of 1920 x 1076 at 60Hz. That was the only way I was able to get it working for me. (Worth a shot perhaps.)
Why not use Radeon Pro and lock the refresh rate @60Hz
Thanks for this Information, I download this software but can't quite see how to.get it to force the refresh rate. Can you help?
Thanks for this advise, I tried it with the latest ccc drivers but it didn't work. What ccc version did you use to get it to work?
with this trick i can obtain 50hz, but not 60hz. It's of course really better than 24/25hz.
1. Make a profile for your game using the wizard.
2. Read #3
forcing 60hz with radeonpro has no effect on crysis.
Mkay:-\ To bad. Crysis 2 does not have this problem.
Um maybe install latest drivers? Why are u using those old drivers anyway? Have u tried the latest 11.2?
with every drivers, with 5970 or crossfire 6970 too.
This thread seems to be more than one year old .
Correct and the issue still has not been solved for some.
I have had this issue come and go for both Crysis and Warhead and everytime I think I've worked it out it comes back on a different driver (and yes, I do realise that this is an ATI driver thread and I have Nvidia hardware).
I can usually fix it by creating a custom resolution that has a refresh rate that is higher than 59.97 Hz, which is my LCD monitor's default refresh rate @ 1920 x 1200.
Once the refresh rate is forced to just over 60Hz (using CVT reduced blanking to slightly lower the pixel clock to a safe level) the game will go full screen @ 60 Hz and no longer drop to the 50Hz or 24 Hz refresh rates.
The problem for me is that some drivers would allow the 59.97 Hz refresh rate to be manually overriden and others wouldn't.
I hope this helps shed some light on the problem.
