 Post Topic: CryEngine no longer working with my Graphics card
PostPosted 07.07.2012, 05:48 
For some reason, CE3 keeps crashing whenever I try to load forest.cry or use the launcher. Whenever I use the launcher, I get a graphics card not supported error. But according to the website and past experiences, my card should work fine.


The Card is an ATi 5870

I think it may be driver issues, due to my CCC not even opening, but I've reinstalled it several times already and nothing has changed.

That card is decent, its probably a driver issue. Is anything else not working? (i have no idea what CCC stands for)

BTW, I stay away from ati for that exact reason. Their software, support and drivers are a total joke compared to Nvidia.

get a GTX 580, better picture quality too due to things like physx

Its a bit more expensive for the same specs, but you get what you pay for.

CCC stands for Catalyst Control Center, it's pretty much the Control panel.

For NVidia, I wish I could get one, but I can barely afford my computer as it is, so I can't.

Might be a bit off-topic, but with these "stable" drivers that ATI offers, I managed to get 3 BSODs in one day.

Yeah, the joke is ATi has no drivers while NVidia causes house fires.


I just wanna continue learning with CE3, but this damn thing won't even load the map. I do believe it's the drivers, because it tells me the drivers crashed and rebooted. When I map a whole new map, it seems to work. Is there any third-party drivers?

I honestly didn't. Thank you! I hope a fix comes out soon.
