Yeah I cannot play any FPS game with vsync on... I prefer the tearing over the lag

@Stevenxowens792 Thanks for uploading! so the game remains stable at 30 FPS and above with those settings?

PLease give your honest opinion.. when I make the videos.. do I need to explain better or more accurately that fraps locks the frames and that the real FPS is in the screenshots? I put a 8 second delay in the vids with a slide to explain it but I am sure I can do it better... What are your thoughts? Best Wishes, StevenX

I would just add that FRAPS caps the FPS between 30-60. I think that would be sufficient in games that can achieve higher FPS than that.

Here is 2 links. They are for two compressed folders located on mediafire that have screenshots of Crysis 2.

Folder 1 is Crysis 2 with Dx9, Ultra Settings Enabled Plus the High Texture Pack.

Crysis dx9 ultra plus high text.zip

Folder 2 is Crysis 2 with Dx11, Extreme Settings Enabled Plus the High Texture Pack.

Sorry was in the middle of uploading the 2nd link! my uploads are SLOW....

they work just fine Steven, thanks for uploading.

So, those were taken during actual gameplay or afterwards from a recording?

During replay. During racing it's on the cockpit view and like a normal guy I haven't read the instructions on how to change views yet. Seems the buttons will let you look around or free look from inside the car but not like a "behind car" view or "above car" view. Game plays smooth as silk. Very impressed that I am able to play on high as Ive heard others have issues above medium. With Video card at 750/1000 frames are usually above 35 and most of the time above 40.

Nice video. However, I found the game really boring and uninstalled it, like pretty much any FPS I tried last couple of years. :-(

These are some more pics for Gears and anyone else. Settings: Dx11, High Texture Pack, Extreme (ultra particles) 1366x768. I am using bandicam and fraps as I was experimenting with video stuff. You can see that bandicam doesn't adjust to the frame changes as fast as fraps does.

Still bums me out that not everything is destructible. I like Crytek 3 for some of the shader and lighting effects but I miss destructon in Warhead. its like they took one step forward and two back.

Oh, and in case anyone is wondering, my gpu according to evga precision sits at 73c the entire time at 99 percent utilization which is what crysis 2 pegs it at. Clocks 750/900 (the mem makes little difference and increases temps)

Very nice Steven... I played the first one and love it perhaps the C key should change the camera view... Its very common on PC racing games. Sounds like you have it running nice to congrats... Looks awesome.

@Gears - Exactly what i am getting now gears. Above 30-45 fps most of the time. My advice though.. is to make an autocexec.cfg file. Place these items inside FTW. r_PostMSAA = 0 r_UseEdgeAA = 0 r_ssao = 0 (our vid cards can process this but it impacts FPS a lot) The bottom line is that we can play the game on vanilla extreme just fine with dx11 and high texture patches. Adding these items which to me makes the objects a little more crisp (less smooth) and it give you some extra FPS for even smoother gameplay.

True antialiasing is nothing special and gets video cards to slow down a lot... For good flow its unnecessary.

Gears - You can play with config settings if you like. Sometimes images are too smooth in game and they just dont pop enough. The vanilla ultra config looks amazing and I wish i could run it but in truth some of it is a bit over the top. I guess that's what it's for. So to wrap up - Vanilla Extreme - 30-45 fps GPU clocks at 752/900 (gpu temp 73c) <-- note i put it at 752 to make sure its at least 750 all the time. I have noticed clocks fluctuate sometimes. This was the case with my old 5850. If you flashed the speed then it stayed perfect, if you adjusted with applications it would fluctuate a little bit. I wouldn't push the gpu too much farther as others on STEAM and Mycrysis forums have noticed the increased settings have caused issues with overheating on desktop cards. If you want a few more frames per second and a crisper picture then add the config from above. Good Luck, StevenX

Actually I like anti aliasing but on a small screen i wont notice :P Jagged lines annoy me

Antialiasing is nice when needed for sure but while I game in 1080p and used to in 1200p I do not see many jagged edges anymore if I was on something way bigger than my 40 inch I might start to see more blocky curves.

If your on the go and have the alienware m14x, FIFA 2011 (soccer not manager) plays great. Over 30fps on high (no AA) on the integrated card plugged in and over 60 fps on the nvidia on balanced power. Plugged in I get over 200 fps on tele cam while playing actual games.

Just plug in your favorite xbox 360 controller and your good to go!

(Mods - I will start cleanup soon if ok, including this thread as it's probably time to tidy up a bit)

I would suggest NBA 2K11 for basketball fans, since it's the only basketball on PC platform (NBA Elite 11 is only on gaming console). don't have details about the fps and all though

      So I just received a 980m in the post and after installing it I was greeted by multiple system crashes on my Alienware m17xr4 and was unable to install new drivers.

      Is there a step in the intallation process I missed? A bios setting I was supposed to change? The laptop is already set to UEFI mode in preperation for this and upon putting the old 680m back in the system it now works again. I have heard that I need to change INI files to install drivers but I expected it to at least function without large bugs such as these. Do you think that this GPU is faulty or have I done something wrong?
       
      Thanks for any help you can give.

      Hi,
       
      I've recently got my hands on an M17x R4 Alienware Laptop from 2013 which I love. I've replaced the screen, keyboard, RAM, and hard drive to make it into a fully modern laptop. However, I'm currently waiting on a replacement for the 680m GPU with a 980m from ebay. My question for you all is, do I need to do anything with the BIOS to make this 980m work? Is there a way to prevent the laptop from using Intel HD Graphics with Optimus? I think the Intel HD Graphics on this laptop are currently broken as I see static-looking dots flash on the screen. (See image below for example). My theory is that because Intel HD Graphics with Optimus is still in-use while in-game, the dots are being caused by it.
       
      Thanks for any help in advance.

      I have spent a little time in the past few days looking around this site. I would love for someone to point me in the right direction to a forum that has information that could help me out with my problem.
       
      I have a:
       
      Alienware M17XR3 
      Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
      Intel I7-2820QM 2.3
      Bios InsydeH20 Version 1.0 A12
      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M
      (4x) 4 GB Ram
      samsung 2.5" 256 SSD (SATA3.0Gbps)
       
      It has been an amazing machine for the last 10+ years. Minor issues, nothing that an Alien Respawn could not fix, till now! On battery power it works just perfect.  Then I plug it in and it's all OK until I try to do anything, and then the screen goes white. The screen sometimes goes yellow, sometimes blue, but mostly white screen. It will do nothing until I do a hard reset (holding the power button till it turns off and turn it back on) with the power unplugged.  If the power is not unplugged then it will go through boot up to windows swirling dots then go white again. If I plug it in and do nothing I can charge it, unplug and continue what i was doing. I have tried a lot of solutions bouncing around the internet, and thought I was having a DC Jack connection issue (replaced the ac/dc power adapter, then the motherboard). I get a better connection now but with the same white screen result. I stumbled into this forum and I'm hoping to find solutions to my issues.  Then upgrade like so many others have.
       
      Any ideas, comments or suggestions welcome.
       
      Thank you in advance!
