As far as shattered horizons, idk someone told me it was about the same as crysis, and screenshots looked pretty good.


my rig playing shattered horizons
its not as demanding as its made out to be i dont think, an thats after the deduction in FPS that Fraps adds to

So i picked up crysis maximum edition. It came with crysis, crysis: warhead, and crysis: wars.
What version do most people play? and what is the newest?

also, just tried running crysis, i set it to high settings and im getting around a steady 60FPS for the most part, but sometimes when something loads in the game, it slows down for a little bit. and when i set it to extra high settings, it has really bad fps.
Figured my computer should be able to run this, no? id be happy with the high setting, but id like it if it could run it smoothly consistently.

Most people play the Crysis multiplayer, don't know too many people who play wars tbh. Wars is Warheads multiplayer, and they are the newest. Crysis 2 should be coming out soon too.


The loading lag is most likely a harddrive access thing. Defragment and clean the drive, or get a faster drive if you want to get rid of it. That's assuming it's the drive causing the problem.

hm, i sure hope it is the drive. Is there a way i could take a video of it for you?
I have fraps, but im wondering if that type of video will show that kind of thing.
I was thinking that maybe crysis cant use SLI mode? so i turned SLI off, and i actually got no performance difference. It did not get better, nor worse.
And especially, when i go into multiplayer, it does this "load" thing alot more. Unplayable unless i put it to medium settings.
