There are two parts to this thread really because there are two main times that crysis chrashes. I own crysis on steam by the way.
My PC specs:
Windows 7 ultimate 64bit
Radeon saphire 5770 1Gb
Ati phenom II 955 BE @3.6GHz
4Gb 1333MHz DDR3 ram
Not the best of machines I know but I can normally play crysis on medium graphics just fine.
Problem one: In the main menu, when I try and change the graphics settings the games freezes, I have tried running it in compatibility mode for but XP and Vista but it doesnt make a difference. The only thing I can do is close the game and restart it, the graphic options stay changed though.
Problem 2: When you are on the aircraft carrier, you are attacked by one of the massive aliens. I have read around and apparenly this part is very graphics heavy but even with all the graphics turned down to low the frame rate gets worse as the fight goes on, starting at about 60 or more going down to as little as 5 and occasionally stopping for a second or two, after this both the game and my computer freeze so the only thing I can do is to restart my PC.
Any advise on how to solve these problems would be much apreciated.
Also, some advise on how to kill the alien would be much apreciated.
