These configs will bring you past very high with smoother & consistent framerates.
Minimum spec is a 8800GT/GTX or equivalent, and a decent dual core processor.


Thanks:

Special thanks to Koroush Ghazi over at tweakguides & to MADBoris for his guide on the commands,
and to all the the forum members who tested to help me improve these configs...


Tweaks:

If you have trouble running the extreme version try these tweaks.
  • "r_WaterReflectionsMinVisiblePixelsUpdate=3" change to 0.05
  • "e_recursion_view_dist_ratio=0.15" change to 0.1
  • "e_view_dist_ratio=80" lower to 60-50

Features:
  • Increased lod distances on terrain, vegetation, sprites & shadows.
  • Increased water reflections distance and quality & tweaked the update
    distances.
  • Added "sys_spec_Full" to force all other cmds not in the config to
    very high.
  • Increase battle dust range in meters.
  • Optimize particles & physics.
  • Tweaked shadows & ssao varibles for best visual lighting.
  • Solved many artifacts with lod & shadows with vanilla settings.
    (ie; screen flickering, terrain, water, and shadows updating)

  • Better detailed mountains and surface terrain.
  • Better shadows & post processing effects.
  • Better view distances.
  • Better bump maps.

Installation for Windows Vista:
  1. Extract .rar file with winrar/winzip.
  2. Place the "autoexec.cfg" file into your; "\Program Files\Electronic
    Arts/Crytek/Crysis/Game" folder.
  3. When inside game hit tilde(~)key, if you see my art it loaded
    successfully.


Installation for Windows XP:
  1. Extract .rar file with winrar/winzip.
  2. Place the CVarGroups folder into your: \Program Files
    \Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Game\Config folder" *Remove the
    old one and back it up if you like, thers one on the crysis dvd.

    Arts/Crytek/Crysis/Game" folder.
  4. When inside game hit tilde(~)key, if you see my art it loaded
    successfully.

Note:
In certain situations Crysis may startup in window mode,if this happens try to enable
fullscreen mode in graphic options, or by hitting Alt+Enter.

Note:
Before playing online with the extreme version you will need to change the
cmd "e_detail_materials_view_dist_xy=4096" to 2048 to avoid a punkbuster kick.

Its pretty demanding, I average 30-35 fps with the vista config. You can lower the shadow resolution for more fps and enable "e_shadows_from_terrain_in_all_lods=0" to 1 for like 3-4 fps.

I already commented the download link but nice work. No i can get screenshots that look almost as good as yours. I would compare this to HP's very high config. So i recommend everyone to give it a go it might work better on your system. Cheers

Kettels are you having trouble running the config? If so lower the shadow resolution and enable the cmd "e_shadows_from_terrain_in_all_lods=0" to 1. That command alone will give you 3-4 extra fps.

Not belittling work and hours put into this... but why is this a "mod"? Shouldn't there be a tweak section and a modification section? As no part of the actual game has been altered or changed, I just don't see this and a few other graphic configs as "mods".

I agree its not a mod like what most people would think, but it does alter the detail immensily in the game from default vanilla. Therfore its like a modification, something anyone could do on this forum. I would have put it in a diff section, but this seems to be the place where other "modified" configs reside.

is those screenies taken with the DEFAULT TOD in the levels?

I wonder that, since I have the NaturalMod installed on my system, so I was wondering if someone have tested it WITH the NaturalMod?

btw, it looks really good actually
