Can't even bloody play on low!

Crazy ass thing; For the Crysis Wars trial, I start it up using maxxed settings, 1680x1080 and 4x AA, and it's going ~40fps, dipping to ~20 in demanding areas. So, I lower some settings, start it up again and the fps is exactly the same. I lower it more and more.. and more... To the point my 896MB GTX 275 is juttery on the lowest settings. I installed an ultra high config said to improve fps at high settings, and yet again nothing changed. I can lower the settings when ingame, Clearly watching with my eyes the graphic quality going down, but absolutely no change in fps. Im just baffled, I can play L4D2 at the absolute maximum with smooth rates. Pc specs: QuadCore 2.4ghz 4GB DDR3 XFX GTX 275 896MB Vista 32bit tl;dr : Lower settings =/= Better fps

    If you used a configuration file you are going to have to remove that most likely.

    Most of the time in decent PC games, there's a lot of cvars in the configuration files that in-game settings don't cover. There's a good chance that there's some settings in the config that don't offer immediate visual changes that could be hindering your performance.

    Also, comparing the CryEngine with the Source'07 engine isn't probably the best way to say "I should be able to run this".

    I got the config to help the issue, it's not the configs fault.

    Also It used to run just fine (few months back).

    Never mind I just caught that. Well then, I don't know. I only played Warhead's campaign to beat it, and Crysis Wars once at a LAN (where my computer kept overheating...broken mice galoooore).

    So I don't have much experience with it.

    Have you made any changes to your computer since you were able to play the game with better frame rates? Updated your drivers? Opened up your case at all? Have you checked your temperatures?

    It sounds like you're somehow CPU bound. If changing the load on your graphics card doesn't result in framerate change then it's not your graphics card. If you have any anti-virus or other running background applications you should disable as many of them as possible. Other than that it may just be all your CPU can give. Your CPU is barely above the recommended requirements so 20 fps minimum isn't too bad (supposedly the human eye can't tell the difference down to 14fps or so but I beg to differ).

    I could be wrong I'm not sure what others with similar configurations to yours are able to get out of the game. Unless your graphics card or CPU burned out. Also you could be experiencing the effects of thermal throttling (I believe Intel processors still do this if they get too hot).

    Well then it might be worth a try to use the System Restore to a few months back and see if that helps. You must have changed something that's causing it to run slowly or, as I said, it could be a hardware malfunction. It's rather odd how it is affecting only one game.

    Vsync is off,
    AA again makes no difference

    There is no option of AF in wars, maybe there's a console command that'd help

    Some games force it. Go to your Nvidia Control Panel, go to 3d options, select your game and then force Vsyinc off. Or re-install that shit and see what happens...

    I've already tried that,
    Making them application controlled did nothing,
    Making them off did nothing
    Re-install did nothing.

    Maybe I just can't run it....Or ----> the game is retarded <----

    That's not possible since you have a bestial GFX card.

    You could try to repair with your windows vista cd.
    Just put the cd in, restart your pc, access the cd and select repair, the you select wich partition you want to repair.
    My pc couldn´t run Dark Messiah of Might and Magic,didn't know why, then i did that repair thing and it worked, now i run it at maximum 210-232 fps fine.

    If you change a setting wait a while for the new settings to completely have effect or even better restart the game.

    If you change settings in the Dunia engine (derived from the cryengine) you have to wait till you cache is completely empty of the old setting data before you get a definite improved fps.

    It's the same for me in Crysis. You should check to see if there's a silly setting affecting your overall fps. check you haven't set your NV Panel to anti alias everything or something daft like that. I have done it before. Derp.
