In summary, the first Crysis had a command to display your framerate, but Crysis 2 does not have this command. Instead, you can run the game very smoothly on the "extreme" preset on 1920x1080 with no noticeable slowdowns using Two HD 5870's in CF. There is a graphical glitch where bright lights in the game (including the sun) are constantly flickering. What could be causing this?

I remember the command for the first Crysis being r_displayinfo=1

But what do I type into the console to display my framerate in Crysis 2? I bought the full game from best buy yesterday.

Off-topic, but there is a graphical glitch where bright lights in the game (including the sun) are constantly flickering. What could be causing this?

OK, we get it, you have a nice computer. We got that from your first thread.

Before I post another lmgtfy, Google is your friend.

Well I can't help you with the FPS command, seems they have disabled it in the final version of the game. But also you are using dual video cards to run it smooth like that? I say it was a waste of money, I am running the game on all Extreme settings including 4xMSAA and 16xAnIso and getting completely smooth gameplay.

My setup is nothing new, its a Core 2 Duo 3.0, 4gig 1333 DDR3 ram, GeForce 260 GTX 896mb, Win XP SP3.
What I do to optimize my games and performance is this (take note):
-created a partition for Windows (C:\ drive)
-created a separate partition for games to install (D:\ drive)
-created a small 3gb partition at the start of the physical disk (G:\ drive), using Partition Magic.
-C:\ drive has a static page file (minimum & maximum size is the same) of 4gigs
-G:\ drive has a static page file of 3gig (the whole partition) for extra page memory
-D:\ drive (games drive) is defragmented with O&O Defrag, it has a method called "Complete\Name" deframenting, which re-arranges all files and folders alphabetically, which means every file of the game is side-by-side for fastest possible access

I think that's about it. I disable all useless things running in Windows background, disable any services running which don't have to (like itunes background programs, any antivirus, firewall, etc), make it so those need to be turned on manually because they all waste memory in Windows and makes games have less.

I can still run all current games on absolute maximum settings, smooth, and my system is basically 3 years old, and graphics card is i think 2 years old :)



Now why did you make this original post on a physics board and not some gaming forum? hah. and i registered just to reply you this ;p
