I installed Crysis, which went fine. It started up ok, and I kept the settings all on low just for a test run. When the game actually started the graphics were all screwed up. Everything was very dark, I was getting weird lined squares, and it seemed like a lot of textures and shaders were missing. For example, when you're inside the plane and the two guys are talking, (very beginning of the game) all I can see are the red lights from their suits and the blue lights inside the plane, that's it.
I'm running a PC With:
Windows XP Pro w/sp2
2 gb ram
ATI Radeon x800 256mb
Intel Core 2 duo processor.
I tried a hotfix for the x800 I found, updating the display drivers, and patching the game to 1.1 but to no avail.
Any help would be appreciated, and if you need more information on my system, please ask.
