To make things clear, if you have any problems with launching Crysis, just don't follow any of those weird tutorials that UESE posted above. It breaks your game and nothing else. Maybe the game "works" after applying those "fixes", but it creates a lot of new problems, so it only makes everything worse.
Here's list of things you should NEVER EVER do if you don't want to break your Crysis:
- Rename "Bin64" to "Bin32" or vice versa
- Use files from Crysis Warhead in Crysis
- Edit "Documents/My Games/Crysis/game.cfg" file
- Install GerCry's multiplayer "client" (it's ~3 GB of garbage)
All these things don't make any sense. Note that if you've already done some of these weird things, you will probably need to reinstall Crysis first.
So, to actually fix the problems, everything you need is to install CryMP client. Or, if you don't want to do that, you can use directly fixed "Crysis.exe" from here https://github.com/ccomrade/c1-launcher/releases
. It correctly
fixes all known problems + there are some additional useful features (check the readme there for more information). Also, Steam and Origin users don't need to manually obtain "Bin64" folder, because with the correct "Crysis.exe" even 32-bit version will work without any problems.
If you still have some problems, just ask here or in CryMP Skype/Discord group.
Good luck and have fun.
