Crysis installation tips for Vista (64-bit) and nVidia geforce 8800 GTX.

I struggled to get Crysis to start up correctly. I kept getting an unresponsive black screen when starting the game. Here’s how I fixed it:

  1. Uninstall any “network managers” (especially if you have an nVidia mainboard
  2. Uninstall Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% or any other virtual drive/iso mounter applications
  3. If you continue to get black screen-ed, install the latest nVidia beta driver

On a 2.4 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo with 3 gigs of high speed ram and a BFG geforce 8800 GTX, I’m getting pretty nice frame rates at the highest settings, with no anti-aliasing enabled. Best of all, the darn game actually works!
