Computer problems again

This morning my computer has burst. Fortunately the SSD is perfectly and I was able to make a backup to another computer using a SATA to USB adapter. Sorry but surely it delays final version release a few days. Looking components on ebay. Sigh.

  1. Well, you sure as hell don't deserve that.

  4. Just donated a little money. You deserve to be paid as much as Crytek for all your hard work. Looking forward to the final version.

  5. Sorry to hear that Maldo. Wish you the best! When you fix our grear again try to fix the problem at the first stage where is missing the sun effect before alcatraz opens the door and enters the city. In original the sun is entering under the door.With the mod the sun effect disappears. Sorry I cannot sent you screeshots. First stage before Alcatraz opens the door with his hands. Thank you for your your release.

    1. Hi, thanks for remember it. It's fixed already, was the first bug fixed, but I forgot in the list. Strange bug because I think is present in the level included in mod sdk.

    2. Thanks for noticing and fixing. We all wait for the final briliant release!

  6. i have a problem and dont know where to write it. Im using Crysis 2 Maximum Edition on steam and i cannot launch mod from start, also using u shortcut, game launching in normal mode, and only in game i can launch mod. Is there a way to launch mod at start ?

  7. Maldo sorry to hear that man. I want to repost this again here.

    Hi Maldo, I spend some time with Windows 8 x64 and I can tell you for sure that when smaa and or lumasharpen are enabled it doesn't work at all. I narrowed it down to the file dxgi.dll in the bin32 dir. I was getting crashing and messed up resolution.
    Removing said file fixes the problem but of course I can't use your new AA. I have no problems with your mod in Windows 7. Thanks for all your hard work!

    1. Hi Sean, I said the same in the other post. If you select ultra fxaa in mod tool, the tool deletes dxgi.dll automatically. I can't fix smaa injector incompatibility because I'm not the developer.

  8. Now I have a problem in Masks Off level, after seeing a Hargreaves, conversation with him skips in the middle and Gould doesn't say nothing like it should, table is not opening so I can't take the syringe to upgrade my suit and continue to play.

    It's a game bug or a mod ?

  9. That sucks Maldo. Your efforts are brilliant, I am very surprised on how not even Crytek can do this good a job. They should pay you, your mod was the reason I got Crysis 2 in the first place, when I saw it first with Dx9, I was dissappointed, with DX11 and HiRes, it was alright, but not great, and now this mod made me get it. Can't wait to get my 1440p monitor to actually experience this better. :O

  10. Crytek Company should absolutely hire you!

  11. Well, judging from the Crysis 3 Alpha, it looks like you may not have that much work to do after release :-) Some good texture work in there - and I swear they used your 3D ivy effects. Maybe you'll only need to release a config tool like the one in your mod.

    Nah, that's being WAY too optimistic.

    Hope your new PC is a boss.

  12. Well, judging from the Crysis 3 Alpha, Crysis 3 alpha looks like shit compared to Crysis 2 + Maldo.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Idiot, that's why its called ALPHA!! It was mainly focused on the graphics. Graphics comes later in the build.

      Delete
    2. Oh really?

      Crysis 2 alpha was exactly the same crysis 2 retail was on launch.... and graphics is the first thing done in games, the optimization and bugs lifting is what goes next on beta and last version before launch.

  13. I'm from Ukraine, so use your build, and very grateful for your work! Lived promotions in your business, and growth in the top! Thanks a lot, waiting for a new version and look)))

  14. I can not run it on windows 8, I get small resolution ?
    anyone else

    1. Use post fxaa. Do not use sweetfx or smaa. Leave the slider in the middle. That fixed my resolution problem on win8.

  15. Maldo you've given my brutal semester one hell of an uplift with Crysis 2! Yes I had the "Semper Fi or Die" no load but I didn't care, the levels that worked were a blast dude! That's rotten luck with your equipment so do what you gotta do for the final version! Best to you bro!

    ReplyDelete
  16. At least please release a fix for this level Semper Fi or Die

    1. +1

      Yeah, please release a quick fix for this ugly showstopper. I tried the "fix" of copying the maldo v3 level, but it didn't worked for me.
      Graphical issues aren't dramatic but this issue is, so a quick fix for this very problem would be very appreciated.

      Hope you get your PC up again soon :)

  17. Hey Maldo, any update on progress? Did you manage to fix up your PC? Thanks, can't wait for your release!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi Maldo, thx for the great mod..

    Think i found a bug: The reflex in the scope must be turned upside down ;)

  19. Ahoy, when is the full release coming out? I first downloaded this when you uploaded, and don't wanna download again for the fixes you put in since I don't have alot of bandwidth.

    Good luck maldo! May the Crysis be with you!

  20. Hey man - I am a big fan of your work.

    I just have a quick question I hope either you or someone less busy can answer...

    I am currently using Maldo 3.0 w/ Blackfire and Quality. When I run the mod configuration, I have all the sliders set to highest and the box checked to override game settings.

    When I get into the game all the options are set only to extreme, not to ultra. Is that normal?

    Thanks.

  23. maldo, ive been using your mod since it was just maldohd, and, im goin to say what everyone else is thinking, but why hasent a company hired you yet? you did better than crytek did on their textures by V3! and your one guy, crytek had 4 maybe 5 people doing it, you take the term, MOD, and turn it into a lifestyle. congrats and good luck with your PC. that suks ad man.

  26. thanks man^ but I got it from atomic gamer, and I have BIG news too MaLDo and everyone who uses his mod. IT WORKS WITH STEAM MAX EDITION!!! and on top of that maldo, there is some work to be done with the minimal texture features. but anywayz, congrats on the awesome mod!

    ReplyDelete
  27. more news, just tried to run it with recommended settings and it crashed without even loading the textures, all i saw was the FluidActor under the map... (I Dev games and I know what im talking about. :P)

    ReplyDelete
  28. figured id update again, there seems to be a bug with the mod loaded and it'l crash when attempting to load a previous campaign, to let the game config the textures properly, all you guys will have to start a new campaign.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Minib34ts, MaLDoHD is not a texture only mod anymore. All maps are highly modified. So, every time your game saves a checkpoint and you use it from mod to vanilla or vanilla to mod, map layers/objects can appear out of place. Is important to use vanilla saves only without mod and mod saves only with mod.

  29. Hey Maldo, is there any updates to your computer. Shouldn't take a month for a computer to be fixed, haha. Hope you didn't lose everything because then that would be intense devastating.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Maldo, If I start a game using beta version, then when the full version will come out, will I have to re-start the game from the beginning? I hope not.

    Simplex

    1. Just go into the console and type "map mapname" where "mapname" is the name of the map you are up to. That's if it doesn't work.

  31. Thanks to a brilliant effort in publishing your article. One can be more informative as this. There are many things I can know only after reading your wonderful article.

  32. yup, I must say - the length of this delay is a bit strange

  33. We wish you the best!

    May your PC be ressurected mightier then it was before!

    (Totally go for a HD7970 GHz and not for a GTX680 if you were thinking about it).

    I hope you and your closed ones are ok.

    Here hoping to hearing from you soon !

  35. Hi Sir great mod, is this legal to use? no violation of EULA? Thanks!

  36. espero que soluciones rapido tu problema y que estes bien maldo, un saludo y segui asi , muy buen trabajo, mejor que el de crytek sin dudas.

  37. It seems Maldo really is gone somewhere. Is he ok? He usually updates by now. This is a shame, all that work for nothing...?

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's a little odd indeed. Maldo's last message was on Nov 22. No words from him since then. It only takes one minute just to post "I'm fine. Final release will be coming soon..." Maybe he's very busy right now.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Maldo is fine, 2 days ago he made a post in the Assassin's Creed III topic @ Guru3D forums. But why there is no news about the final version of his mod is beyond me...

    ReplyDelete
  40. He's busy playing Far Cry 3 :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. He was hospitalized a week ago and was in critical condition. I don't believe he made it.

    1. Pretty sure the guy above's story on Guru3D is more believable than yours you douche.

      Delete
    2. Indeed Maldo seems to be busy with AC 3 now (the story on Guru3D is true, I googled and found it). Maybe he is saving crysis 2 HD 4.0 final release for Christmas?

      Delete
  42. Wonderful work but it's taking too much time. Crysis 3 will launch in 3 months and by that time, this MOD will loose all it's appeal. The last video from Crysis 3 is fantastic graphically

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'd seen him on Guru3D forums too on Far Cry 3 threads... He's still alive yes.

    Not funny, i expected for a quick hotfix release to "Semper Fi" loading level crash problem but nothing... So game is paused for me and still awaiting for a hotfix... maybe.
