Thank you so much for sharing this!
Can't wait to try it..
Get ready for lots of pics in the Screenshot thread and lots of people commenting on Performance here .
I can't believe I didn't get a key. Doh.
Let us all know how it is when you can people.
Extra key is gone.
Is it just me or is the Alpha build overly dark when playing? I've nudged the brightness up to 100% even and it is still way too dark in places.
Lowest I hit when playing was 16fps on High settings but the game remained playable.
So what is the early verdict on the graphics? Is it impressive? Much better than Crysis 2? Better than Crysis 1? Best graphics in a PC game ever?
What about gameplay? Look good? I haven't downloaded the alpha yet, just want to get an idea from those who have played it.
Given the fact they gave use 1 map, and that map is the most colorless brown washed out piece of **** map I have ever seen! At least in Crysis 2 Beta we got two or three maps I think. The Harbour one which was gorgeous and the roof top one.
I will post some screen shots in a bit, dont know if they will infringe on the NDA though. Ah well f**k it, Im uploading them now.
Maxed out, 1080p (finally fixed the fullscreen 24Hz bug), getting poor crossfire performance around 32-58fps. Seen a lot of bugs but that's to be expected as it is Alpha. Map is a piece of **** though.
Looks nice, better then Crysis2, I like this new color gradient filter.
Level looks good too, i dont play at 1080p yet so i have good fps, from 45-70fps @ 900mhz OC., usually ~52-62ish fps gpu usage always 96-99%, vram ~ 1050-1100mb (@ Win8).
but i lowered blur to low, shadows to high and water to medium or high, rest v.high.
So far im quite impressed, but there are some weird texture ******ing glitches here and there - occasional fps drop but very rare, although it could be server fault.. I changed to other server and didnt experience these fps drops.
The darkness levels really hamper the map in places. You just have to look at CPC_RedDawn's pictures to see just how black a lot of the areas are lighting wise.
Aside from that I like the look of the game as it brings a very different vibe to that we saw in Crysis 2.
It's the driver for sure, on my rig it works fine, but 45 fps is annoying :bang:
Need a proper driver for this:nerd:
btw nice screens...
Woah I have 18 fps here. ???
What settings you trying to run at there Wanny?
Nah it's ok for some reason it reloaded the map a 2nd time and it was above 30 fps after that. It was maxed out settings. I didn't expect 60 fps but I expected at least 30 fps lol
Turn blur down/off and you will get all your fps back
SLI doesn't work
Poor performance with everything on VERY HIGH and 2560x1600
Driver 306.97 64 bit
Nvidia inspector 220.127.116.11
the cards are loaded on 45-50% but there is no boost in game :bang:
I hope people are properly taking into account the Alpha nature of what it is they are playing. The last time we played this sort of release was when they gave us the Crysis 2 MP build but that was at beta stage, not alpha. So if you are getting problems I wouldn't allow it to dishearten you too much at this point in time.
aww so annoyed! wont let me launch it,says needs directx 11 card :S guess i need to wait for my new one to arrive
That's odd, it should let you play at the 10.1 feature level.
Do you have DX11 installed?
