This one took me a while, finally managed to get the my computer stable enough again and find a work around for the performance issues with crossfire. For the reference, if your having problems getting the game to work right with crossfire, find your installation folder, navigate to the exe in bin32, and create a copy called FEAR.exe and run that.

Copy paste of video description:
Crysis 2 on the PC, Original resolution was 5040x1050, scaled down to 1920x400 to fit on a HD video, aspect ratio remains the same (48:10).

The video is from game launch, though the 3rd or 4th level. I've also put my usual annotations about how the game preforms with three screen, my thoughts etc and opinions on the game.

If your having problems getting the game to work right with crossfire, find your installation folder, navigate to the exe in bin32, and create a copy called FEAR.exe and run that.

Thanks, I have no doubt it looks good in 3D but I lack the monitors :P.

If it arrives my next mini video review is probably going NfS Shift 2, after that I'll be out of new games, unless you count Bulletstorm, plus I've still got Dragon Age 2 to finish.

Note the bold text, I using the steam version which hasn't patched as yet so it's killing me to know if they sorted out the HUD...

Crysis 2 PC 1.2.0.0

A new Crysis 2 PC patch is scheduled to go live later today. Below you will find a list of the top fixes.

List of changes
Further improved anti-cheat measures
Fix for spurious characters appearing when initiating text chat
Fix for Chatlog doesn't disappear after kill cam
Fixed occasional login issues
Changed VOIP defaults
Fixed some UI aspect issues on multiple monitors
Added option for crouch toggle in MP & SP
Fixed a bug where players lost Nano Catalyst points after restarting the game
Filter settings in server browser are now retained
Default player count required to start a game from the lobby lowered to 4
Fixed issue related to “Deleting Reference Counted Object Twice” error that appeared for some users with strict router/firewall settings
Fixed issue of not being able to melee after dying
Fixed issue where some video cards were being stated as unsupported


EDIT: It patched finally....

HUD has been centered in multiplayer but not in singleplayer
The 'match over' screen which used to be very messy in Eyefinity is now spot on.

I just saw the Crysis 2 Ultra patch thing the other day. Makes me want to play the game now.

Wonder if a single 5870 would be up to the task of Crysis 2 in Eyefinity with Ultra.....

I know I have enough system ram and cpu power just the GPU may not be enough.
