2017 100% Working Fix For Crysis & Crysis Warhead On Windows 10
This First Method Requires That You "Own" Crysis Warhead.
About half an hour ago I purchased Crysis(Steam), Crysis 2(Origin), Crysis Warhead(Steam), and Crysis 3(Origin). I have yet to test my Origin downloads but neither Steam version would launch. I was getting really upset as I had purchased these games from a Third Party Source. No matter what patches I tried to download or anything of that sort fixed Crysis. So I tried launching Crysis Warhead, same freaking error! Checked the files in Warhead and was surprised to see a "Bin64" folder! I Immediately double clicked on the 64bit application and the game launched! Praise Gaiben! After closing the game and attempting to launch it again via steam it wouldn't so...


For Crysis Warhead:
1) Download Both Crysis & Crysis Warhead
2) Open the folder where Crysis Warhead is installed
3) You'll see a Bin32 folder and a Bin64 folder
4) Delete the Bin32 folder
5) Rename the Bin64 folder to Bin32
6) Open the new Bin32 folder
7) Delete the "Crysis" application
8) Rename the "Crysis64" application to just "Crysis"
9) Crysis Warhead Now Works!

For Crysis:
1) Right click and copy that new Bin32 folder you made for Crysis Warhead
2) Paste it into the Crysis install file (replace the old "Bin32" file with the new one from Crysis Warhead.
3) Crysis Now Works!


I Haven't Tested This But This Should (But It's NOT Guaranteed) To Work

1) Go here:
2) Download "Crysis Patch 1.2"
3) Run it
4) Let us know if that worked lol

You're Welcome, feel free to comment on my profile or add me if you need any additional help.

If the first method doesn't work (Which it should), I'd try that next.

Wanted to point out, that this method does work, but when you launch Crysis and start a new game, it will play the cenimatic and the screen will go black, you will have to hit the ~ key to open a command prompt, type con_restricted 0 then hit enter, then type map island and hit enter. at this point the game should start loading. (you only need to do this for starting new games, not any loads.)
hope this helps.

I just installed crysis from steam just now, and it works on windows 10 64bit, without doing anything on this thread, has steam updated game now ? or is steaqm version not even 64bit version ? and if not, what advanatages dows this fix do.

This is just to get the game running if you're having issues. On my Win 7 machine it ran just like you said but when I switched to Win 10 it wouldn't launch, so I had to find a fix. Other than that, there's nothing else to it.

Ah, ok cheers, what about running it in dx10 for better graphics, will i being running in dx10 with this steam version ?
Rustafarian May 27, 2017 @ 4:13pm 
Better graphics? Ehm...I'm just purchased Crysis about a week ago and have only played the 1st one. To my knowledge, Crysis 3 supports DX11. Unless of course you install graphics mods for Crysis. I'm a Crysis Noob. I just wanted to find a way to play on Win 10 and share it with other on how I did it.

Just pointing something out, I've done this and now it works thank you loads. But now when I try to open editor which is what I mainly bought the game for, I get this:

To get Crysis to work, all I did was place all applications in the Crysis folder to Windows 7 compatibility mode.

It's weird how some methods work for some but then not work for others.

Sorry, like I said, I found that fix the same day I bought those games and I'm new to the Crysis Series. I don't even know what Open Editor is. I'd assume it's map creation?
