Hey guys, i searched the internet for a fix, and apparently this isnt windows 7 related, it happens in vista 64bit aswell.

So far ive not found a fix and its really ****ing me off.

The game basically wont start, when i open the game the screen is black for 10 seconds and then crashes.

Ive tried running as admin, running it in 32 bit, running it in vista compatibility, turning vsync off in the nvidia control panel and all the other things people suggested.

But why look elsewhere when i am a member of a forum with some of the greatest minds on the internet!

so any help would be fantastico!

It kinda does, kinda doesn't for me.

I noticed if I install the game as normal using my DVD and patch it to 1.2 the game crashes on start up, but applying a no-cd crack allows it to run perfectly.

So logically it's a issue with the copy protection used in the game, something that Crytek will fix soon enough no doubt. Please note this only works for the 32-bit version of the game, the 64-bit still crashes on my machine, small price to pay I guess.

My game runs fine, patched with 1.2 as well. I am having other types of problems though... but thats a completely new thread.

I'm assuming you've tried reinstalling Crysis completely? And try forcing an update of directx. I've had it tell me that I was missing a dx10 .dll file when starting the game once and I forced an install (from MS's DirectX runtime website) and installed a couple of other games that installed DX10, Far Cry 2 and GTAIV. It worked fine after that.

Crysis has it from get the go.

Crysis warhead is the one that need the patch to get x64 executable/ and dlls

Well, ive tried using a no cd crack for it, the game is updated to the latest version and it still doesnt work, ive reinstalled it.

and it doesn't work with 32 or 64bit, just black screen for 10 secs then crashes to desktop.

i will try manually installing direct x.

wish me luck!

Yep i'm in the same boat here - Crysis just stopps working as soon as its run on win 7 x64.. was working fine on win 7 x32 so i can only guess its something to do with the exe being 32 bit? who knows but there's no definitive solution on the net that i can find.....

I run Crysis and Crysis Warhead on both Windows Vista x64 and Windows 7 x64. No problems at all.

What you should do is check your drivers. Make sure you have the latest official drivers. I use NVIDIA stuff and it all works fine. Either way, it's not the game, it's a problem with your setup.

I think it's an issue with your video card drivers. Try using a different version.

I had the same problem, you need to use vista compatibility mode.

I had the same issue. I used the no-cd crack then I went to the program files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32\Crysis.exe and dregged the exe to the desktop and ran it and it worked.
