I've had Crysis for a while and I wanted to see just how well it was running. So I download Crysis Benchmark. Soon after downloading I tried it a few times then got bored. So I decided to play the campaign again for the 20-somethin time. I started a new game but when it gets to the end of the load screen the game crashes with an error message saying there was an unnexpected error. So I decided it must be a problem with Benchmark. I uninstalled Crysis completely just be safe. Now I'm trying to reinstall it but when it gets to be about 2/3 done with "Copying New Files" I get an error message saying: Error 1305.Error reading from file C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Game\Levels\Multiplayer\PS\Shore\l evel.pak. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it. Not exactly sure what to do... Here are my system specs if you need em: OS: Windows XP Pro w/ SP2 Motherboard: NForce 680i SLI LT Graphics Card: Geforce XFX 8600 gt 256 mb CPU: Pentium 4 3.2 ghz RAM: 1 Gig Supertalent and 1 Gig Kingston Hard Drive: Seagate 250 Gigabyte Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

Could look like a writing-protected directory. But i doubt it.

That's what I did. There was not a hint of Crysis or Electronic Arts on my computer. Is there a file somewhere that I can download "Shore" or whatever seperately?

Did you delete the My Games/Crysis folder too that's in My Documents?

If you did and that didn't help, PM me your email address and I'll email you the Shore level folder. :D

Ok guys, pause for a second and think about what he wrote...

Error 1305.Error reading from file C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Game\Levels\Multiplayer\PS\Shor e\l evel.pak. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.

That's what I did.

We know that if the folder doesn't exist it's not write protected, since there is nothing to write protect, you can't write protect the entire HDD otherwise Windows wouldn't boot... So we pause, and think... "Hey, If it can't verify the file that it's trying to install, which happens to be located on external media called a DVD, OR in a compressed .exe installer on the HDD, it must be either a DVD issue, or a .exe issue!"

Ok, brains aside, clean the disk, blow out the DVD drive with your breath to remove any dirt/dust from the laser lens, try again, if still no luck, try using a different DVD drive, if you don't have one to put in, share a DVD drive on another networked computer, and install via network. If your installing from a .exe compressed archive such as a demo file etc, then ensure that that file (If in Vista) has full permissions to run, if in XP, install to a different location on the HDD

Here is somewhat of a solution, return the game to where you bought it. Ask for a new one because this disk is f'ed up. (I'm a very simple man lol)
