Crysis wont even start
Why? It just launches, opens a black window, then crashes.

I have the same problem, but I need a Crysis folder for 32bit. Do you know where I can find it?

Guys, I had the same problem, reinstalled plenty of times, nothing worked for me. It was doing my head in. Forget the crippled steam version of crysis installation, download yourself clean image version of crysis(don't use the cr@.k of course), use your crysis product key from steam and voila everything is working. Not through steam but it doesn't matter. Update your game to 1.2 and you're good to go.

Give us a link to download the "clean image version". I'd like to try this approach.

I have tried the fix (yes, with up-to-date graphics drivers for Win 8) and have also used the 64-bit folder from Crysis Warhead (both are prolly the same thing) and can get Crysis to start, make some settings changes (which get saved), then upon clicking New Game and waiting for the intro video to end... I get the terminal blank screen. I have not had this problem with Warhead, which loads and plays flawlessly. Crysis 2, also, no problem. Only the first Crysis seems to have a some kind of display glitch. Or maybe it's SecureROM. I dunno. But, at this point, I just want to play the ####ing thing finally...

So, I have resorted to "playing" the game via the Editor app (Sandbox 2). I load each map separately as I finish them. I first close all editor windows (via the View menu), so it allows me to play each map in a fairly full-screened, but still windowed setup. Better than not at all. For those who would like to know how to do this, reply here and I'll walk u thru it. It's really very easy. Got thru three levels so far (but some of the level names were changed from years ago, so I'm not exactly sure of the order to play them now. Yes, crazy, I know. But, again, better than not at all...).

I'm familiar with Editor apps cuz I used to mod Far Cry maps but no time for that anymore...LOL.
