Crysis DX9 Demo Tweak

DX 10 Features in Windows XP - MUST SEE on the Crysis Forums offers a tip on improving the visuals in the Crysis demo under DirectX 9, saying the game can be coaxed into looking more like the game running under DirectX 10 without using Vista (thanks ActionTrip). On that topic, there are DirectX 9 and 10 comparison screenshots on this page (thanks Ant and Digg). Here's word on the tweak, which is obviously going to require pretty good hardware to run smoothly:

If you 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."

it better be as good as I think as I just pulled the trigger on a $3000 gaiming rig mainly just for it)

What the heck are you building that costs 3000 bucks? A Galaxy class starship???

Ha no shit, I'm guessing something like Alienware, and you could build the same specs yourself for about a grand.
