Use Crysis DX10-Only Settings with DX9


For some inexplicable reason, Crytek opted to make the ‘Very High’ graphic settings a DX10-only feature. It would be understandable if DX10 were required, but they aren’t – ExtremeTech has found a simple method for allowing people without Vista or a DX10 card to use those high-end settings.

There’s some simple editing you’ll need to do in a certain configuration file; novices shouldn’t be driven away, although, chances are, your computer won’t be able to run the game with these settings.

In addition to publishing this short how-to, ExtremeTech went into the differences between the two versions of the game and posted some disappointing benchmarks to show just how badly Crysis is beating even the highest of high-end computers into the ground.

It’s been known since the demo that this is possible, was again announced within 6 hours of release, and published in almost every Crysis tweak guide out there, so why is this making news again after the game has been out for 2 weeks?
