    Don't texture packs always look better then the ones shipped with the game?
    Absolutely not. It's not unusual that people just get some high-res files from cgtextures and slap them into the game without actually thinking about how that will look. I've been following this for a while and this guy made a lot of textures on his own, has a sense of graphic design and knows that the consistency of quality is really important.

    Dang, this is the best texture pack I've ever used. Almost entirely because the guy just made the old textures HD and didn't slap some shitty CG Textures on that ruined the entire feel of the game. The ambulance doesn't look like a piece of pixely shit anymore and signs are now readable.

    All the post fx and other crap uses up resources so they have to cut back on textures. On consoles that is.

    uhhhh... not really, no. maybe the motion blur is a little too much, but i dont think anyone has ever complained about overdone bloom or lensflare in this game.

    Always loved Cryengine's bloom, it seemed to be only overdone where it enhances the scene (I.E. first sunrise in Crysis 1, that blew me away)

    It really depends on where it's used, they're not going to include 2048x2048 textures for a sign that's only used once behind something you can't get past, etc.

    Speaking of that FakeFactory pack, weren't the world textures really good or something? But the hilarious models is what people have come to know it for?

    Yeah the characters create this big dissonance. I think it's just awkward in a way.

    I'm just looking at the latest fake factory version now (it's v12, and apparently it's very new) and I think his Alyx character looks much better now. But I wish he put that much effort into making the original Alyx look better while at the same time keeping the charm.

    Going to download and give it a try anyway. There are new shaders and shit too now apparently.

    They kick you (not ban) because you're editing the game's files, not because you're changing how the game looks.

    People need to stop being dumb shitheads and realise this.

    Whatever it is that detects the changes doesn't differentiate between changes to the look of the game and changes that affect gameplay. It only knows you changed shit and that should be enough.

    I agree with you. The thing is, they set the files to client-side on MP, when it should be server-side, so people don't edit the files to get 10000 damage instakill rifles.

    It benefits much more from the DX11 patch though. The tone mapping makes it incredibly vivid, especially on a nice screen.

    Meh, Crysis 2 in DX11 seems to be incompatible with Windows 8 for whatever reason. First time I've experienced an incompatibility problem with this OS.

    So I'll have to wait for a patch :/

    Believe it or not there is an Elite PC gamer mentality. And by that it's for people who think they have like the ultimate gaming PC. People who think a 560 Ti is the best video card on the planetz. With games that actually include these kinds of things as an option, and it is indeed demanding, you get shit from people whining that their computer can't run the highest of the high. "SHIT OPTIMIZATION" "WHO CODED THIS SHIT" et cetera. It's rather common in the places I look since I'm usually checking out configs for games for higher quality. Sometimes it's legit, like with RO2, that game did not look good enough for the performance it required. But plenty of times people either whine that the game is badly optimized since they can't max a 2012 game on their 2009-2010 hardware, or it runs so fast that they think they didn't really add anything in the game.

    The best medium is to leave it normally, but then let users go into configuration files and let them tweak because the mentality is, "oooo I'm pushing it further than it's supposed to." and if it doesn't work well, then they know they simply pushed it too much. Seems like a better alternative.

    But that's my opinion.
    And that's why Crysis 2's lowest graphic setting is called high iirc.
