Not the greatest solution, as it requires users to download binaries from an untrusted source.

Simply go to the install directory, remove/rename bin32 and then rename bin64 to bin32. That's all you need, the official files will work fine. Unlike Crysis, Warhead does ship with the 64-bit files, only they aren't being used by Steam.

I did exactly what you sugested and the game always crashes. Then I did the changes listed in the guide and the game worked without any problems. If you don't trust filed from the download, you can install GOG version of the game to a diferent location and then copy the bin32 and 54 files to steam folder.

And then you either pay for the game twice, or have to use a pirated version, once again. Which may or may not be what it looks like.

If it crashes though, you can go to the modified bin64 folder which is now bin32, remove crysis.exe, and then rename crysis64.exe to crysis.exe. Back in the days Securom had no 64-bit version, so the crysis64.exe file is a completely DRM-free file, while crysis.exe is a 32-bit launcher infested with Securom.

Thanks, works.

I removed bin32 dir, renamed bin64 dir -> bin32, and renamed inside Crysis64.exe as Crysis.exe.
Works perfectly. Win 10 1809, i7-8750H, GTX 1070 8GB, 32GB@2666.

I have tried this fix and also the fix suggested by Dusk of Oolacile. Both fixes work to get the game running but neither fix has helped the random and very frequent crashes to desktop. I played Crysis (or tried) which was the same crashfest. I thought I'd have more luck with Warhead but it's just the same. Unplayable. I stumbled through most of Crysis but I've just about had it now after so many hours of trying to fix these games. Any tips appreciated as I'm on the verge of uninstalling Crashfest and Crashfest Warhead. Cheers for the fixes though as it did get the game working. It just isn't playable.

Honestly the only other thing that comes to mind is to try and run it in windows 7 comparability mode. Sorry I can't help more.

Thanks for the reply. Well I finally came across a tip that seems to have actually worked. After following this guide, I managed to play through Crysis to the end and so far Crysis Warhead has not crashed once. I fixed Crysis by pasting the bin64 folder into the Crysis folder and then followed the same instructions for Warhead. Here is the tip :

I also made a video of a playthrough of the entire Alien Ship. Gameplay is in 4K but the YouTube video is in 1080p. Check it out if you're interested :
