Apparently a guy over at actiontrip.com has found a way to run Crysis on "very high" settings on Windows XP and according to him and his screenshots it looks just as good as when running on DX10.
if you want true dx10 get vista, simple as that.
Doesn't sound suspect to me if you read all answers to it :) And don't get Vista it's just slow and even less secure than XP :S
i know all that but i looks nice :) over time it will get better, as did XP.
You may be right about it being slower but vista is definately more secure. On windows xp I would have to remove spyware all the time but on vista I have no need for spyware removal software whatsoever. I've also yet to get any viruses which I had to worry about on xp. As graphics drivers mature more on vista gaming will get better and better.
Please change the title.
Lame: (0 minutes ago) Title is inaccurate. You cannot play Crysis in "DX10" on XP. Report it as Lame, Bad Editing, or someother.
This info is common knowledge allover the net! Download the 13k files to overwrite the files in the "cvargrous" folder, then edit the "sys_spec_full" config file.......changing everything to 1 (one)....bingo.
