Crysis Issues & Workarounds

Crymod Modding Portal has a list of known issues and workarounds with the just-released version 1.2 patch for Crysis. A half-dozed potential issues have been identified, and there are workarounds for all but one of them. Thanks Ant.

I had to repair my install of Crysis through the Add/Remove Programs tool and relocate my edited CVAR folder (used to get some of the DX10 effects under DX9) before this worked. Prior to that, it kept wanting me to insert the DVD, which I already had. I'm glad this worked, because if it'd come to reinstalling the game I would've probably uninstalled and just forgotten about it. I don't have DT or any virtual drive software installed right now.

I installed the ForceWare 169.44 drivers released by nvidida today after the 1.2 patching was completed. All my config settings, such as controls and HUD color, were reset. Save games have loaded fine so far. Haven't tried multiplayer.

One thing that fixed this problem for my was removing NaturalMod which I know a lot of people are using. The mod has a really god installer and will undo all the changes it made automatically. When I removed it, the patch installed no problem and then I was able to just put it back in. That said, it's ridiculous that having mods installed will break the installation. Why they continue to insist in using the pain in the aass Windows Installer engine instead of just making a regular installer that just overwrites the files that need udpating is beyond me.

Well, they are wrong. I have DT installed and if I have the real DVD in the real optical drive, it works flawlessly. I am not running YASU or anything.

You don't have to close Daemon Tools, you just have to have the real DVD in your real optical drive.

From their own list of work arounds.

2. "Insert Disk: Crysis DVD" error

* Turn off virtual tools such as Daemon Tools
* Repair Crysis installation
* Re-Install Crysis

Do you have to keep the DVD in the drive to play, or just to patch? If it's to play, then it would be easier to just wait for a cracked patch.

Only if you are using a pirated version would this be an issue.

Only if you have the disc image mounted. If you install it off disc, you don't need Daemon Tools.

Even YASU doesn't work for hiding DT from Crysis anyway (not with the latest DT Lite that is)

DT Pro has IDE simulation which basically bypasses any copy-protection.

What Bludd said.

Why would you bitch about it telling you to close Daemon Tools? Close it, install patch. Problem solved. Only if you are using a pirated version would this be an issue.

Yep, but
1) EA won't allow it
and
2) Crytek probably isn't very keen on removing it either. Maybe replacing it with something, sure

Wouldn't it make it easier for everyone if they just removed Securom and the CD-check?

If you have the DVD in your non-virtual optical drive, Crysis does not complain about Daemon Tools (or any other virtual drive) being installed. If you don't have the DVD loaded, it says you have to insert it and it still does not complain about Daemon Tools being installed.

If you, however, try to run the game with, say, a mini-image loaded in Daemon Tools so you don't have to have your DVD at the ready when you want to play, it does complain.

What they fail to specify is whether you have to keep Daemon Tools turned off in order to play the updated game. If you do, that's a problem because the only reason why this conflict exists is because of Securom.

Considering they DON'T blame people for having Daemon tools and offer a work around for it, but DO blame people who are having same game issues with cracked versions of the game I really don't see your point.

Hmm, I wonder if Crytek updated the Securom with the patch and just forgot to mention it...

Nice to see the pro-Crytek committee blame the user for having perfectly legit third party apps like Daemon Tools, and not installing PunkBuster which is OPTIONAL in every other PB enabled game.

Sad day when people have to defend a company's shitty DRM. Nice try, indeed.

None of you guys apparently could take the time to read the issues before taking your shot. FAIL.

They are all self caused problems from using cracks, daemon, removing punkbuster, people removing files, a bad copied/mirrored patch, or a third party windows installer problem.

Glad to see the anti-crytek committee come out to play though, nice try.

I've been saying it since Far Cry... if Crytek put half the effort into testing and gameplay design as they do in making their games look pretty, their games might be worth playing.

I thought this patch was the long delayed hugely touted be all end all for crysis. Anyone test it properly? Nope.

Tooo funny
