    Re: News - Modders boost Crysis Warhead fps by 60 to 70%

    Ill try this mod in a few, i havent really had problems with enthusiast at getting a maximum FPS its more todo with a steady one which no setting gives >.<. Maybe the other mods will have co-op finally because that is something that would be VERY good for crysis.

    Re: News - Modders boost Crysis Warhead fps by 60 to 70%

    It's not disimilar to my command line hacks in the other thread - but it does turn off motion blur entirely. It doesn't enable the underwater effects though (which I really like). The biggest straight increase with speed is killing off AA for me. I notice depth of field is off too.

    1 Go into the game, set everything to "Gamer", choose your res, set 4x AA (if you want AA)

    2 Quit.

    3 Create a new shortcut to the game exe (in Bin32 of the crysis warhead dir), rename it to Warhead Tweaked or something

    4 add the following to the shortcut:

    +r_sunshafts 1 +e_water_ocean_fft 1 +g_battleDust_enable 1 +r_WaterGodRays 1 +r_UsePOM 1 +e_shadows_max_texture_size 512 +con_restricted 0

    (outside the quotation marks)

    This will enable lots of eye candy whilst not sacrificing performance too heavily - the shadows tweak makes no visual difference but boost performance btw.

    This works in the original crysis too.
    I don't turn off motionblur and I reduce the shadow textures more too. With no AA this runs very well on an 8800GTX and has more eye candy.

    One other thing - Crysis/Warhead both run faster under XP.

    Re: News - Modders boost Crysis Warhead fps by 60 to 70%

    After using it for about 10mins i have seen little if any different, looks slightly worse without any extra performance that i can see and it crashed just now so i think its better on normal .

    Is there something like this for Mass Effect? My 9800gtx at 1920x1200 averages less than 20fps as far as I can tell

    Re: News - Modders boost Crysis Warhead fps by 60 to 70%

    I was trying my own config file for a cheap very high setting, (with a couple of things changed). Just got Warhead today, will try it with and without

    If you read the thread it basically reduces some options (which have been around since Crysis) & the 'modder' openly states this, not quite the amazing performance increase noted as it does reduce IQ.

    I tried this config last night. To be honest I thought it adversely affected IQ a touch too much so went back to my own autoexec.cfg that I meticulously crafted for Crysis.

    So it works for some, and not for others.

    I would have thought that an official patch will come out eventually (there hasn't been one yet, has there?) that will automatically test things like this and get better fps - but maybe not.

    It's basically the same engine as the first Crysis - so all the tweaks have been around for a while. It's still a killer compared to everthing else tho!
