So after I installed the newest patch I get this error everytime I get hit. It doesn't crash the game or anything but it's just fucking annoying. This giant screen pops up and says SHADER ERROR. Anyone got any ideas?

    Well that depends on what gfx card you have. If it's an nvidia just open the nvidia control panel in the taskbar tray, go to Help>System Information and click the components tab. The file version displays your current driver version. Then check the nvidia website and see if there are any new drivers for your card.

    But bare in mind, for older cards, newer drivers don't always help.

    Delete the folder:
    My documents/My games/Crysis/Shaders

    Not sure if it will work but worth a try.

    Try changing the graphics settings. It might force the game to create the folder and thus doing it's shader jazz.
