Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Options Application

UPDATE ON PRODUCTION VERSION 2.0 RELEASED

Considering I still get a lot of blog traffic from here, I figured I'll update this post.

I've updated the Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Options Program to version 2.0. It's currently in beta but it is a big improvement over what I had.

Download Link: https://sourceforge.net/projects/c2a...a.zip/download

My Blog (updates posted here first): http://wasdie.blogspot.com/2012/10/c...s-options.html

Unlike before, I'm actually doing a beta. I don't guarantee anything of this new app is actually working right.

I know it won't be as popular this time around but I decided to make it anyways becuase I felt I never finished it.

You'll notice a few different things. First off there are less options. With every different patch of Crysis 2, Crytek changed how some of the configs worked. A lot of what was in the first version no longer applies, so I just removed them to make the interface a bit cleaner. All of these settings do work in Crysis 2.

Next you can actually save and read .ago files which store all of the user settings. Note, .ago files can only be read in by the Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Options program. You can load the file in and then use the confg to apply the settings. Under file you'll see the options. I haven't tested this much so use at your own risk.

The last is that this program will read any existing system.cfg or autoexec.cfg files you may have, apply the setting to the Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Options program, and then delete those existing system.cfg and autoexec.cfg files. If you have any settings that are not supported in the Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Options program they will be lost. You can always manually add them to the config file, but every time you reapply the configs from inside the app, it will delete those settings. I'm working on a way to preserve those settings but it's kind of tricky.

I'm also not certain about mod compatibility. Since this program only affects the system.cfg and autoexec.cfg files within the Crysis 2 root directory, I am not sure what will happen with full mods. If the modes mofidy those two files, this will screw up the mod. So don't use it if you have mods installed. Odds are you don't need it if you're using mods.

My primary focus with this release is bug fixes and getting it working with mods. In the future I'll be able to add an "advanced" section which will support many more settings and should increase mod compatibility.

Why did I make this version now so far away from Crysis 2's launch and so close to Crysis 3's? Simple. With some small modifications I'll be able to get this program working with Crysis 3. I really wrote this for the future. Technically, this program will be able to be updated to be used for any game using an open CryEngine 3 game that allows for autoexec.cfg files and the user to change settings via console commands.

Anyways, here's the quick readme:

Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Options Version 2.0.1 Beta Readme

This is a large overhaul of the old Crysis 2 Advanced Graphics Options program that I made in 2011.

Instructions

1. Unzip the .zip file.
2. Place anywhere you want.
3. Run the .exe (run as adminstrator to be safe)
4. In-game make sure you choose the DirectX version you want

Notes
1. Program will autodetect and existing system.cfg or autoexec.cfg files in the Crysis 2 root directory.
2. Program places any settings found in any existing system.cfg or autoexec.cfg fle and apply them.
3. Program will delete those existing files and replace with own generated file.
4. If crashing try running the .exe as administrator.
5. You will still have to choose your DirectX version in-game


Report any bugs, issues, and suggestions to the forums at:

Version 2.0.1 notes
*added tooltips to all drop down boxes
*tweaked the GUI so it doesn't look as terrible

I'm impressed. Send it to Crytek with the subject line saying "FTFY" only.

+1. You are awesome.

Edit: Says it can't find my copy of Crysis 2, then crashes. I keep my games on a separate logical drive; moved it there and had no luck. System: Win7 x64, Steam copy of game. Any ideas?

No idea, I'll add an ability to choose your game path.

Nope, it saves the autoexe.cfg.

I'm working on the ability to choose your browser path. This should fix any problems with people installing to different locations. Just hold on tight.

Nope, his program just creates an autoexec file which will be placed inside of your Crysis 2 folder.
