I tell how to get DX10 graphics in win xp

SO i was searching my special places and i came across some really cool information How to make Crysis have dx10 Graphics on windows xp YES XP Now i played Crysis on vista and its amazing and runs like a bueat... but with the graphic enhancements its not that smooth as it is on vista sadly thous features fit much better in vista lol. [my rig] 32"hdtv Dell 1700 pci express 3.0 ghz single core ATI radeon 1600 512 megs of ram 1.5 gigs of ram 200 gig hd Here is how: "Tweak the configuration files in \CVarGroups\ by copying and pasting the "very high" settings (1st paragraph) IN PLACE of the "high" settings (last paragraph) the game will load the highest possible settings even though the drop-down menus display "high." I messed with it alot more and changed even more stuff but there is rumerd to be a ultra setting but idk if u can unlock it or if its even in the demo. Im going to upload some screenshots and my config file soon so be patient ill be back later ! but screw with that i was running at 36-60 fps all the time and now well im running at 20 or so lol but i will adjust it when i want for my best feel for my rig

    Just to let you know, having Vista doesn't automatically give you "DX10 Settings". You need a DX10-capable graphics card for DX10 to work.

    My brothers Laptop games pretty damn well and he has a 8600 in it which is DX10 compatible. Just because it's a laptop, doesn't mean it can't be used for gaming.

    A laptop can run it but it will not be playable and you will need the 7950 laptop graphics cards as well since they are better than the 8600 ones for the laptop.

    I played the demo and had to OC my grpahics card in order to play at 1024x768 at high settings just in order to hit 30fps ingame. That is with a 8800GTS 320Mb and a Core 2 E6400 running at 3.04Ghz. So you will need something powerfull in a laptop to run it any decent resolution.

    One of these days OpenGL must rise and rule ALL!!! Anyway Interesting that you can supposedly get DirectX 10 to work on an operating system that doesn't even support it. Direct X 10 is coded for an entirely different driver model and as such will never work on XP unless Microsoft wills it (maybe in XP SP3? if that ever comes out). This trick is at most a way to get better visual quality from the game while running on DX9. I'm hoping in the future we see more and more games supporting open standards like OpenGL or OpenAL. OpenGL will eventually be upgraded to have all the processing features if not more than DX10 currently has and it will still run on any platform.

    Yeah, an 8800, 2gb of ram, and a Q6600 at 3ghz sucks too much to run vista well. The vista performance drop in games is well documented and has nothing to do with having a weak computer. This is the second time I've seen you trot out this tired old line and it's just as much of a lie now as it was in the BF2 forum.

    True, but OCed quadcores and 8800's with tons of ram do not make poor computers and those have all shown the same absurd performance reduction on vista that lesser machines have. That Q6600 rig I listed above went from 60+fps in a full 64 person bf2 server to less than 20 in a 16 man server. On XP bioshock ran at 40fps instead of 10, HL2: Ep1 with Fakefactory never dips below 50 rather than never going above 30 and modded oblivion can be run maxed out at a steady 30fps. Vista runs fine for some, but for a great many people it shows an inexplicable drop in FPS.

    Uh huh. Sure. I have Vista on 2 of my 3 computers, one being my main desktop. All of the games I run on it work perfectly fine, as do the applications. I've never had any sort of FPS drop, malfunctions or anything. Do you own and use Vista regularly?

    And for a time I had 3 computers with windows ME on them that worked perfectly fine, what's your point? There is overwhelming proof that the vista performance drop is real even for the most powerful of computers. Yes, some people do have weak computers and some others have excellent performance on vista. Calling everyone that accepts the variability of the "vista experience" a vista-hater or otherwise insulting them or saying they have a weak computer is nothing short of trolling.

    Since when did I say that? I don't ever recall saying that. I do agree that some games may not work for some people, but then again that is not what I said. You never even answered my question. First answer my question. I'd like to see you justify your comment:
    Troll is more accurate I think. Last time I checked blindly insulting people and accusing them of being Haters and senselessly whining while dismissing facts supporting their statements, facts which by their very existence prove yours to be entirely and wholly false, was a perfect textbook incidence of trolling.
    To do that, you must then find me evidence of myself trolling, and I'll leave you alone.

    It's because Vista takes a lot to run. Solution? Get a better computer and stop complaining. Meh. I hate it when people say that Vista sucks. It doesn't suck, it's just that your computer sucks too much to run it well. ---- There is overwhelming proof that the vista performance drop is real even for the most powerful of computers. ---- In order: You trolling, evidence proving your trolling has no substance to it and it's Vista that's the problem, and me explaining what the replies are in order.

    Posted by fugitsu-blackhole Meh. I hate it when people say that Vista sucks. It doesn't suck, it's just that your computer sucks too much to run it well.

    So you're running a 4ghz octo-core with 8 gigs of DDR3-1333? Because you just agreed with fugitsu saying that a 3ghz quadcore with 2gb of DDR2-800 on a P35 chipset with an 8800 plugged in is sucks too much to run vista.

    No...I didn't. I have an AMD Athlon 3500+ w/2x512mb DDR2 Corsair XMS2 Memory, an e-GeForce 7900GS KO, and a 160GB WD hard drive.....I run vista w/o lag at all.

    Its not about making a point, let the people who hate vista complain, but you would prob find that 4/10 people who say they hate vista dont have vista. its like all new OS's they suck at the beggining, give vista 1 - 2 years and it will have been patched so many times time that will be as good as XP, but saying that the efficiancy of vista is a load of bollocks. But this thread is getting a fave!, once i dl the demo im gona see what fps i get with "dx10 features" on a Geforce 7600 gs :P

    Eh, you CAN get software DX10, but hardware DX10 still won't be supported due to the fact that DX10 instructions are hard-coded into the DX10-capable graphics card. DX9 and below don't have those instructions.

    Has anyone else noticed that Crysis in dx10 mode makes everything yellow and somehow even MORE bright than dx9? It's almost hard to play because of how absurdly overdone the light bloom gets just from looking at a tree, let alone stepping into the shade.

    This DX10 hack works very well for me. I have a 8800GTS and I can notice a huge difference between DX9 and the partial DX10 effects.

    Guys come on, where is this thread going? It was about Crysis kicking ass on XP not about the FEUD between Xp and Vista or some shitty LAPTOP! Besides Xp is god-like, Vista has got nothin on it cept looks and DX10 which will be ported for Xp too, hopefully. And to be on the good side our main man here GTA dude fixed us up with some pretty uber nastiness for Crysis on XP.. xD

    DX10 will not be ported to XP for a number of reasons. Someone will have to rewrite the whole database for DX10 to work with XP and more importantly Microsoft will not allow this to happen. They want use to move to Vista and not stay on XP.

    Glaringly blue? I get a very large range and depth of color and brightness. It's just some games (or maps coughde_dustcough) take HDR and bloom to such extremes that the sky turns white and everything else gets blasted out. Stepping into the shade under a tree makes the sky turn pure white and the world begin to glow like you're on drugs and have your pupils dilated.
