    To enable a "fake" very high add the attached file to your \Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis folder. It turns on colour grading, turns off SSAO and tweaks a few other things. There's virtually no difference that I can tell. I get between 55 FPS and 80 FPS with my current config. Setting Edge AA to 0 and using 2xMSAA gives me a playable 45-65FPS too. In the options menu set all settings to High first, then close and copy the file to your Crysis directory.

    I'm sensitive to frame rate fluctuations myself, so I can't stand playing anything under 30-40 FPS, it's horrible (to me).

    Going SLI will net you a noticible improvement. I'm running RE5 with 8xAA, all maxed and the config tweak for 64bit HDR at an average of 100FPS and a min of ~80. Dropping to 4xAA gives me a 120 FPS average. Using Vsync and D3DOverrider (free with RivaTuner) to force triple buffering and the lowest I've seen is 59 FPS for a few micro seconds every now and then.

    ATI drivers are really good these days. The only negative is with the strict monthly releases. If a game oms out in between you either have to wait for a Crossfire profile or rename the .exe file to AFR-friendly-D3D.exe, fear.exe, oblivion.exe etc.

    EDIT** To use the tweaked config, create a shortcut on the desktop that will force DirectX 9 mode, ie add -dx9 on to the end of the path of the shortcut. Running the 64bit version in DX9 is preferable.

    REAL SWEET Psycho. Is there one of these tweaks for Warhead? And what do you mean by fake very high settings? Could you also tell me a bit more about the RE5 tweak?

    I dont usually Vsync at all, however one nite i noticed some horrible tearing . Was hard to not notice it actually so have had it Vsync enabled since then in RE5.

    By fake very high, it means that certain settings that aren't availible in the DX9 version are enabled. Up until the most recent patch, DX9 settings for Very High/Enthusiast were greyed out. This config tweak, along with some additional commands can make the game in DX9 mode look virtually identical to Enthusiast DX10, but with ~10 FPS extra. As some settings in my .cfg are to turn things off (Ambient Occlusion and edge AA) without degrading the over all IQ I call it a fake. :thumbsup.

    You can use the same .cfg in Warhead by placing it into the Warhead folder. It also works in Crysis Wars (multi player).

    To enable 64bit High Dynamic Range lighting you need to edit the config.ini file with notepad. It's in the documents\CAPCOM folder, one level up from where your save game is stored. Change HDR=LOW to HDR=HIGH. If you have a powerful CPU or a quality discreet sound card, set ReverbQuality=Low to ReverbQuality=HIGH. If you want to gain FPS, set HDR to low, ReverbQuakity to low and set SeVoiceNum to something lower than the default of 128. Usually 64 isn't all that noticible and gives ~5 FPS on my system due to the integrated audio.

    If you're using Vsync I strongly recommend D3doverrider to force triple buffering. This will stop the frame rate dipping down dramatically to 30 FPS, then 15 FPS when your system can't maintain a constant 60 FPS. I find that enabling it also stops minor fluctuations like 60 FPS down to 50-55 FPS. Note that there is an option in CCC and The Forceware control panel for triple buffering, but this applies only to openGL. DirectX triple buffering requires either application level support to enable it or a program such as D3Doverrider to intercept api calls and "inject" the command manually. Some multi player anti cheat systems may detect this as cheating, even though it isn't. If using an online game on steam or using PunkBuster don't use D3Doverrider. It's fine to use with RE5 though via GFW:L

    FOr more on triple buffering as well as a |Crysis and Crysis warhead comprehensive tweak guide go here: TweakGuides.com - Gamer's Graphics & Display Settings Guide . The game guides section contains loads of tweakguides for some recent games also including Fall Out 3. I don't think he's going to write any more though.

    I've attached a copy of my RE5 config file. Just rename the extension back to .ini and place in the documents\CAPCOM folder. You might want to back up your own first.

    Hey Psycho, got the DX9 working but your zip file is invalid ( says my computer ) . Wont let me extract or anything. I really do see the smoothness between DX9 and 10. Only thing is Evga precisions hardware monitor which usually displays GPU temp and frames only works in 32bit mode. Im reading through the tweak guide and will get the hang of it, i have modded Fallout files n such...

    From seeing the FPS in 32bit mode which i can view but cannot in 64, Rates look about the same, but the smoothness is very wow-ing. Ill try out Fraps and see what she says. Evga is reading in the 20s-30's on enthusiast settings with AA off. Im sure a few more tweaks and ill be ready to go. I would much prefer 30-40 , but may not get there without SLI.

    Thanks again you Psycho!

    By the way, i need some rotten eggs and did not know the value of them until i found out a useful purpose for them. If you could , when u get a moment, give me a few ( or trade) would be sweet. thanks again bro.

    To open the archive you'll need to change the extension from .zip to .rar. The forum wouldn't let me upload a .rar, and I CBA to re-zip it.
