Crysis on my XPS1210

Playing Crysis on Dell XPS 1210

crysis coverxps1210

I recently got Crysis and was too eager to paly it since I had Playe dthe Demo and believe me its awesom. I have another Desktop which has a bare minimum configuration to play games (Inrel Dual core 1.6 2140 CPU, 1 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD,and Geforce 6200 256 MB) It runs the game pretty well at lowest setting with some console tweaks.

My XPS has 1.83 GHz Core 2 Duo, 1 GB 533 DDR2 and Geforce go 7400
It too runs the game just like my desktop. Just make it more enjoyable I decided to compromise on the visuals and used the folowing console settings.

These are such that will work for almost everyone.

hit ` key [left of 1] to enter console
Type in con_restricted=0 to disable restriction

then type in
e_clouds=0 hit enter
e_shadows=0
e_dynamic_light=0
e_decals=0
r_TexResolution=1

These make my game playable without much compromise [my view yours may differ]]

The commands are looked fron the Tweakguides
