MaLDoHD 4.0 BETA




Here we go, BETA dudes!

Important things:

  • IT IS A BETA.
  • Before use this BETA, I recommend run Crysis 2, select standard Extreme graphics settings. Select DX9 or DX11 (I recommend DX11 for this mod, all changes have been made to shine in DX11). Select your resolution, you can use downsampling for better results. Disable HiRes Textures if you want save some memory or leave them turned on if you have a good amount of memory. Exit game.
  • Download, unrar, and execute MaLDoHD_C2_Setup to run installer.
  • Select your Crysis2 game root folder if installer can't find the path.
  • When installer finish, run Config Tool (shortcut in your desktop).
  • Please, I know you maybe have a super highend computer, but take a look to Recommended Settings in Config Tool. Mod has been tweaked for use those settings. You can add Reflections, Penumbra Shadows and those candy effects over Recommended Settings using checkboxes. I recommend you do NOT check Particles Shadows. If you miss some important graphic effect using this config, ask me using this blog before try standard Ultra preset. I want you can play this mod with higher framerate possible.
  • Don't use ingame graphics options. Using could break mod configuration.
  • Use DXOverrider or twice ALT+TAB to enable Triplebuffering. DX11 have Triplebuffering disabled by default. If you use multigpu you don't need it (remember to check Multigpu option in Config Tool in your case).
  • When you play the mod for the first time, you must start a new campaign or restart a level. Savegames from original levels checkpoints DON'T WORK. It's because this mod uses updated versions of maps and savegames have map info inside that don't match with the updated versions. Using old checkpoints from original maps in updated maps produces invisible objects and broken gameplay, so you can't resume your old campaign checkpoint. Start new campaign to play whole game or use Mod campaign menu for map selection. If you want reset your nanopoints, create a new profile.
  • Known issues: Maple tree leaves texture is not done. TOD changes are not finished (config tool option is disabled and some levels have edited TOD at this time), Reduced textures option is not finished (more reduced textures in final version) but you can use it, two marble textures in Terminal level are not finished. And some brick walls textures are finished but not applied.
  • If you find bugs you can post here. Write a new comment like "BUG: bug description". White elements, flickering, etc.
  • If someone reads a bug that he does not suffer, can add a reply in bug comment like "NOT IN MY SYSTEM: computer description."
  • If you have an "easy to implement" idea (add ammo crate in a place, remove ammo crate, add weapon, add a barrier for cover somewhere, etc) you can write a comment such as "SUGGESTION: idea description". If this petition gets some +1 replies I can include it in the final version.
  • I hope you enjoy this BETA.
  • It's possible that I will be some days offline.





To simplify the graphics configuration of the mod, whoever can follow these simple steps.

    1. Is it better to use nvidias smart vsync or triplebuffered vsyne?

      Delete
    2. Adaptive is better. Only because it is only used when your FPS goes above your monitors refresh rate thus NO taxi on the system.

      Delete
  5. I think triplebuffer (twice alt+tab) is better in crysis 2. But you can try both.

  6. Why don't you just upload your files on a torrent tracker?

    1. Please, explain how to do it. I never used torrents. I need to sleep a bit now but I will do both tomorrow (mediafire and torrent).

      Delete
    2. You simply Zip your files, download a client like utorrent and ask that client to create a Torrent out of it. Take that torrent file (around 1-10kb) upload it to TPB or any good torrent sites.

  8. Yaaay!! Now to find time for messing around with this mod. School is getting very busy for me. I guess I will enjoy it during the winter break. The bugs will get ironed out too.

    Thanks for the Christmas present Maldo <B

  9. this is awesome!!! congratulation!
    btw some guidelines for AMD cards would be nice

  10. Is shones mod included in the maldo 4.0?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Do your changes really degrade performance with Ultra that much?(Of course, I don't know all the changes you made either so I can't say) (Or is it just the same performance drop you would get before with 3.0 or Vanilla DX11

    I for one don't really care much about 60FPS in a cinematic game like Crysis where 30FPS works just fine for me. And I would rather have the extra IQ. ;p
    However, when I bought C2 at launch it was mostly for the multiplayer and I played at a capped 60FPS (or Capped 45fps with the then current DX9 extreme settings) and no Vsync to maximize responsiveness and to ensure no performance problems.(Outside of the broken things like Orbital strikes anyway)

    Thank you for all your hard work Maldo !!(And for adding the original AA options to the config tool)

    Really, I have no idea why Crytek hasn't hired you as their sole Texture guy haha. I can say without a doubt (IMHO) for a game aiming for realism, your textures are the best of all time.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. However, if I ever get a significantly stronger GPU I may play C2 with this @60FPS just for fun(Couldn't hurt!) with Ultra Settings.

      I just wish Nvidia made 6XX series cards without things like Power Boost and degraded Memory interface/bandwidth.

      My GTX460V1 Overclocked has just 10 GB/s less memory bandwidth than a GTX660Ti (Which has been proven to be it's Achilles Heel http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-660-ti-memory-bandwidth-anti-aliasing,3283.html)

    2. I have to plug second and third 480 gpus before a final crysis 2 playthrough. A confidence, I have not finished the game yet. Now is the time XD

      With one gpu and recommended settings @1080p and ultraAA, the performance is 45-60 fps. You can select Ultra if you want, of course. If you do it, please post the most important things you miss in recommended settings.

      Delete
  12. Maldo you are the one! You killed crytec and her team with this release! And it's a beta! Nice work! No problem with Asus 285 GTX TOP! Everything is set to maximum, but tesselation and penumbra shadows!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Can someone tell me, what are these "Penumbra shadows", and how much do they add to the overall game's visuals?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Maldo, what are you using to create your installer? And are you using lzma compression to get the filesize minimized? Thanks

  36. I'm getting a resolution error?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Undefined resolution to be exact. The game launches in the crazy aspect ratio in Windowed mode, then when I go to change the resolution it just says "undefined resolution?"

      Delete
    2. Yea. But not the EVAL version, I am running the full release version. I obtained it through special permissions through Microsoft and my school because of my field of study.

      And the games resolution runs fine without the MOD.

      Delete
    3. Hmm, I couldn't tell ya then. I know I have that error anytime I try to run Crysis 2 in DX11, but I'm just running the Release Preview so it probably doesn't apply. Odd...

  39. not 9 installers but 9 rar parts when you extract them will have 1 installer

    ReplyDelete
  40. Please, start game without mod to change resolution so I can know if it's mod fault. And then I'll go to die.

  41. Really should seed it man on the torrent. I think you just have to press the play symbol to seed.

  42. I think the problem is when I extract the file in part 1 I get 2 errors. (7zip) The other files I get 3 errors.

    1. You have to download all parts. When you finished downloading, you have to put the cursor on part 1, right click and click on extract.

  47. Ok so :

    Mediafire Links are all OK : please check twice before saying they don't.

    I extracted the installer : NO CORRUPTED RAR FILES ERRORS for me (i used winrar)

    Now i'm going to install the mod ;)

  48. ZAM I am on Windows 8 and installed the mod (was working perfect before) and I have the same exact resolution error. I had it set to 1920x1080 before...when I launch through the mod it's in a super super tiny window and the in game options says resolution: undefined :/

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Is there maybe somewhere in the maldo configs where we can define a resolution? This would most likely fix it I think.

      Delete
    2. This happens in Windows 8. It's a common bug, I had the same issue. Went back to 7 and it works fine. I don't think it's Maldo's problem.

    3. Hi play2lose, please test this:

      Open mod app, check "accept eula", check "create shortcut in desktop" and then OK. Quit and back to windows.

      Then launch mod with desktop icon "Crysis 2 MaLDoHDv4".

    4. Hi David North, Crysis 2 without mod works without that problem?

  49. Ok, Windows 8 resolution problem is a problem in Crysis 2. Not my mod. You can see here:

    https://secure.mycrysis.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=41564

    and here

    http://www.mycrysis.com/forums/topic40086


    This post starts with a basic guide of how to run the mod. Number 2 is "Run the game before the mod". If windows 8 users follow this basic guide, they can see the problem is in the game.

    So, Crysis 2 DX11 don't work correctly in Windows 8 BETA.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hey MaLDo I appreciate the quick reply! I did see those threads however 1 user in there did state that DX11 windows 8 crysis 2 worked for him, and it actually was working for me too (I have Windows 8 RTM final version) It definitely was working before the mod, but I know it isn't your mods fault and that it is Windows 8 at fault. I'll try a few things and see if I can find a solution.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi, Crysis 2 has a bug that launch game in window mode sometimes. Maybe this bug produces the undefined resolution in windows 8. Create shortcut to launch the mod directly from desktop. Then try launching with the shortcut without moving the mouse, using Enter key.

    In fact, I will use this now to test my GPU overclocks as it is so intensive that it crashed when my vid card was overclocked. I tested with no overclock and no issues to report.

    This really makes Crysis 2 one, if not, the best looking game on PC (and that includes BF3)
    Well done!

  62. Ok ive followed the steps got everything install and used the recomended settings. However the short cut directly to the mod loads up the regular crysis 2 ultimate edition. I have to select the mod and it restarts. The maldo barcode is there so the mod appears to be working. how do you determine if the mod is working in game properly? also how do you go about changing graphical options without messing the mod up if i feel i can still enable higher options and maintain 60fps.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I don't have Ultimate Edition, maybe that edition doesn't allow shortcut parameters and that's why direct run doesn't work.

      You can change graphics options using mod configurator. Rise global bar to Ultra or activate checks.

      About Ultimate edition, is it running in steam? Maybe you can't use a direct link to crysis2.exe so can't use parameters. Then maybe a solution is using a "steam.exe -app XXXXX -[crysisparameters]". Is steam application?

    2. I realized i am using the Maximum-Edition, not the Goty-Edition, i don't know wheter there is a Goty-Edition. I just said Ultimate too, because this "Ok ive followed the steps got everything install and used the recomended settings. However the short cut directly to the mod loads up the regular crysis 2 ultimate edition. I have to select the mod and it restarts. The maldo barcode is there so the mod appears to be working." - Anonymous
      looks pretty much like my problem.
      Ultimate Edition is not running with Steam, Maximum is. I never experiment with the Steam starting procedure, so i don't understand your Solution. :)
      But if you explain it well, i will try for you.

    3. Oh, and i can see the difference now. It was a long time ago, since i started the game the last time, so i just thought that.. Nevermind, looks great now. :)

    4. Yes you need to activate/load the mod first via the mods section in the crysis 2 menu of the game.

      MODS section is under EXTRAS see sreenshot

  76. MaLDo,

    Can this be used with the BlackFire mod and if so do I have to re-run that to work or just load it from the mod section within Crysis 2 mod screen in-game.
    Cheers.
    Have been playing a bit with it so far and it really rocks.

    1. BlackFire can mix his mod with 4.0 if he wants. He knows how to do it. Since BlackFire and ShonE know how to integrate his mods I don't need integration. This way is easy to avoid crossed problems and no usable checkpoints every time you activate or deactivate mod integration options.

  77. How do i confirm triple buffer is on. When i Alt tab it takes me to desktop putting the game in window mode which turns off crossfire. Anybody with 6950 crossfire having framerate drops?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If framerate drops are 60 -> 30 fps, Triplebuffer is OFF. If framerate drops are 60 -> 43, 60 -> 51, etc, then you have triplebuffer ON. In my case, framerate is very stable. With reduced config, is 60-56-60-58 more or less. With a high config, is 45-44-46-43 and so on (with one gpu).

  79. Hi Maldo, I don't know if someone already tell you, but I found some "problems".
    I played the two first level and I didn't seen anything wrong, just walking and watch your amazing work... I played more than one hour only for the first level :)
    Now I am at the FDR level and I see two bugs.
    First, a building :

    Then, when you going out, near a cell car, straight on the road, there are some stairs to going under, like a subway station, here miss some textures, there is no floor and no celling :

    Sorry for the bad quality, maybe it's time for me to learn how to make screeshot XD
    Hope you can fix it, if I see some other problems/bugs, I'll warn you.

    Thanks for your fantastic mod, I'll make a donation, I promess. This is an amazing work, and I understand why it toke you so much time... It's like if you made a new game, on your own ! I'm really admiring. Sorry for spelling mistakes.

  80. how to activate BLACKFIRE mod with MALDO 4.0???
    anyone?

    ReplyDelete
  81. Hi there

    The mod is running fine for me too.
    Changed from a 5870 to a XFX 7970 OC a few days ago so this mod is the right thing in the right place and time :)

    I play at constant 50 fps without any drops until now.
    Why 50? every Crysis game runs only 50Hz instead of 60. Why? I don’t know.

    So the only thing I am irritated about is the LOD of the trees. The change of the model wouldn't bother me but the change of the shadows (as an follow of this) is very ugly. How can I increases the LOD of vegetation?

    Here is an example

    pero al acercarse el fondo cambia

    es un bug insignificante y pasa completamente desapercibido pero supuse que querrias saberlo

    pd: el juego no baja de los 50fps a 1080p con las opciones recomendadas en una gtx570 sin OC y con 1.2gb de vram.

    tremendo :)

  86. Works great for me! Looks better, the Ultra Antialiasing option works really well, too. My framerate is about the same as 3.0, and it looks like no more VRAM usage, too. I can't wait to try more levels :-)

    THANK YOU MALDO!!!

  87. Maldo you can deincrease the amount of reduces texture.I got 1 gb and i can play almost normaly.In some place there is freeze gaming becouse the Vram.But is stil playble whit fxaa and sweet fx.So deincrese the value of reduced texture.

  88. Hello ! I quickly tried your mod (before going to sleep).

    I am using recommanded settings with penumbra, bokey DOF and Real Time Reflections.

    It turns around 30fps with my GTX460 OC 2gb, stable.

    It looks very good.

    I am just wondering if the Improved Tone Mapping is used in your mod.

    I'll test more tomorrow.

    Good night and good job. Waiting for the final version !

  91. Hi MaLDo
    Can you implement a slider for AF in the next version of your config tool, because makes your textures look really ugly without AF.
    But I'm impressed that my GTX 570 with 1.25gb vram can save all your hard work.

    ReplyDelete
  92. i set everything on ultra high and achieved about 30fps with my gtx660ti (indoors 60fps capped)
    with a bit of finetuning it should run just fine and with insanely good graphics thanks to you MaLDo

    ReplyDelete
  93. MaLDo, Is there a way I can set your mod to use the Extreme setting for Shading? Shading is what bogs my game down the most out of the in-game settings. i always play with it set to Extreme instead of Ultra and achieve 60fps constantly in every scenario. With your mod I achieve 40fps in the first big area of the game, right after you see Prophet kill himself.

    2. Hi Shockwave S08, very good eye. I wonder if you did a thorough analysis as to mod the game before XD, because there were thousands of these faults.

      I will fix all possible problems you reported, but there are some that are intrinsic to how the game works. For example:

      The line in the shadows can not be fixed. You can change the resolution of shadow values ​​or distances from each lod levels to hide it a little, but you will broke another part. Note that much more or less depends on the value of the shadow blur. Cvars are r_shadowjittering, e_gmsrange, e_gsmrangestep and e_ShadowsMaxTexRes, maybe you can play with them to see the results. I like to hide that line using a highest value for e_gsmrange, so the line goes further, but dissolve some nearby shadows.

      With reflections is the same. The game calculates false reflections using the pixels of screen, so can not reflect that which is not seen on screen, for example what you are hidding with the gun.

      The parallax glitches occur when applied at specific angles geometry. In the original game there are many cases and I've tried to minimize, but sometimes you can not. The worst case is in the level "Dead Man Walking" in the square with red blooms on the floor. The solution is to deactivate the Parallax or use a new element to cover that section. In FDR level rails that samples surely put an object to cover the defect.

      Bricks tessellation in Batterypark can not be fixed. Being applied in an arc-shaped wall, the arc cuts bricks at all heights, there is not a texture that solves the problem. The only solution would have been to have a piece of metal or wood that will take the brunt and then hidding the edges of the bricks.

      Thank you for your reports. I will use the info carefully.

  97. How do you activate this mod and Quality mod at the same time? Whenever I activate in-game it deactivates the other mod. How do you do it?

    Also, can you do it via shortcut? I tried the following but it didn't work.

    1. You can have only one mod active at a time. Just wait for QMod's author to do an integration with MaLDoHDv4 somewhere down the line, and save yourself the frustration of having to code in the necessary scripts yourself.

    I played the first two levels and part of the third. No problems so far. Fairly steady frame rate. says AVG: 43, fluctuates between 32-40.

    I have not noticed any glitches either or anything out of the ordinary. I will continue to post results if need be.

    MaLDo, again, thanks for all of your hard work, dedication and passion. Also, thanks for the SweetFX integration. That was a treat and then you got FXAA to work perfectly with it. The game looks beautiful. Awesome work! Cheers from Miami.

  100. I have encountered only small issues with the game.
    One is that if I turn the camera around somewhat fast some of the object are just starting to load in the game and they pop into the game with a white flash.
    Here is a video I upload to demonstrate that issue.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJZBPgr4Egc


    Also is the game supposed to have this noise filter effect in it?
    Is there a way to disable it?
    Here is a screenshot to show what I am talking about.
    http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/8919/c2m1.jpg


    I also noticed the light on the tip of some guns look weird if I even barely move the camera like this.
    http://img513.imageshack.us/img513/6803/c2m2.jpg


    And I was wondering if you were going to change the cracked glass texture because it just looks weird where one part of the window is perfectly fine and then suddenly it's all cracked.
    A screenshot for that too.
    http://img339.imageshack.us/img339/1483/c2m5.jpg

    I also noticed some clipping LOD textures in some areas but only took a screenshot of this one.
    This is right in front of the build where you first get your Nano Suit scanned.

    Haven't noticed anything else yet.
    Great work on the mod I appreciate it.

    Game ran fine even with close to max settings.

    Tried it on a Phenom II x4 965 + GTX 570
    And an i5 2500k + GTX 680

    The GTX 570 build ran it anywhere from 38-60fps with usually an average of 48 fps.
    The GTX 680 build usually maintain a steady 60fps with some slight dips.

    1. About the video, that's automatic geometry occlusion. Game hides the geometry that is not showed, and sometimes is not fast enough to draw that geometry when is necessary. That lag depends of framerate, how many objects, and memory usage. I can't solve because is the way the game works. Maybe tweaking with automatic occlusion cvars but then will affect performance. I will look a bit XD

      That noise effect is level related. I think I can reduce it a bit but is a design decision for that raining level.

      That blur bug in the weapon light is because the precision of the shader. If you select the highest value in Config Tool for "Depth of field" you fix that problem.

      The broken glass in Dead man walking is a different material. I have tweaked a bit from original glass. Do you like more the original? Maybe I can delete completely that broken section and the result is less disturbing.

      That terrain visible in last screenshots is easyly fixable. Thank you.

    2. I have this issue too, still in fdr level lol

      And I saw something, only in the first level, it's about the ironsight of the scarab. There is white line on the sight, to measure like a rule, when I turn look around and turn the camera, the white lines disapear a little moment, then appear again, and disapear again when the camera turns. There is this problem at specific moment, I mean for exemple, if I look on a car, the lines are still there, but if I look just on the right, they disapear, when I go back on the cars, the lines come back. It's only at some moments and at some directions, not always.
      Maybe the bug was here before, I just never notice it.

      I'll right to you if I note other problems :)
      Anyway, with your mod, this is a real new great game experience !
