Crysis 2 Error and Graphical FixesCrysis 2 is one of the most graphically intensive games so users may be experiencing several different problems with Crysis 2, including crashing, freezing, disconnecting online, lag, errors, artifacts and more. Sit tight while we try to sort out some of that for you.

 

Crysis 2 Crossfire Makes Screen Brightness / Light Flicker

Step 1. Update to the latest version of Crysis 2. This fixes the issue for many.

Step 3. Download the latest Crossfire Profiles using the link above and going to AMD’s site.

    Here is what I did to vastly improve my framerate while retaining great image quality. I downloaded the following application and used it to set everything to high except AA. (Anti Aliasing) I entirely disabled AA. There is not much need for it really.

    wait wait wait. Omni… you played Crysis 2?! I am shocked. lol

    I know. But a friend asked me if it was worth the price he paid and I offered to give it a whirl and see what I could learn.

    Even without AA the textures have few jagged edges anyway, so I was able to advise him to not go waste money on a new video card. Crysis 2 does not need an uber rig. It is a console port.

    It is nice to see the site again. I will have to write another review soon. I am thinking of Gothic Forsaken Gods now that the community patch has been released.

    I have a lower end gaming rig and I get good FPS on 1440×960 on gamer. Although i’m having issues where the game completly crashes my PC, graphics get weird colors and freeze then Comp powers off, and it’s only this game that does it.
    Rig Win 7 ultimate 64bit, amd athlon 7850 BE(2.8 dual core), nvidia 9600gt (OC edition or something like that), and 2 gig ram at 600 some odd hmz.

    This is the true rig I have right now and it’s an AMD @ 2.2Ghz single core with 2.5GB Ram with a Radeon HD 2400 with 256MB and Windows 7 32bit Ultimate. The Game runs a little choppy at in-game vids but still playable. Only get an error at “Out of the ashes”. What may cause this error since all other levels played till here?

    Ooops I forgot to mention that the Game is Crysis 2.
