Imagine the realistic game play of ArmA on this Game Engine!!

EA's CRYSIS using the Cryengine 2

It even has ......GET THIS...A FULLY MODELED ISLAND they made for the game....

This is off topic... and i dont think the cry engine can match the scale of Armas environment and combat.

Its interesting that you can pick and throw chicken around though Posted Image .

A realistic Crysis would rock.

No stupid ass crap in a realistic physics engine would rock.

Why do all these devs make games look, and have the physics, close to real life, and then make you a lone super soldier fighting aliens?!  Posted Image

With completly fake firearms loosley BASED on a real life weapon with flip out scopes and stuff.


Sorry for repeatedly editing this, but i also notice even more things they put in sutch as helocopters that look like they are based on an Hind flying undamaged after getting hit by some kind of weird future AT launcher. lol.

Also, why are you asking ArmA modders to mod another game?
I'm pretty sure they'll want to use their knowledge and time to do stuff for ArmA and not some other game.
Shouldn't you be asking this somewhere were you can find Crysis modders?

CryEngine 2 is next gen hitec engine thus ... it will cost similar price like UE3 or upcoming Source

aka hundreds thousands to millions USD per signle license ...
millions to tens millions for studio crossplatform license ...

i see no reason for BIS to throw away theirs own inhouse engine to get another one and be dependant on CryTek

Crysis is nice game on CryEngine 2 and i'm sure sooner or later there appear realism mod, but i doubt it will be sooner than around this Xmass (1y after ArmA release)

With more support from BIS, and more development from the mod community, and coordinated efforst 'grouping' mods into one massive mod(cooperatively and not ripping other's work) I think ArmA's graphics are good enough.

Actually, with some in-game Ai fixes and some seriously better hardware (8800 GTS) ArmA looks completely different now (to me on my comp).

1. Crytek is still a slick looking engine. Props!
2. Anything touched by EA is the poop under gamer's shoes.

ha that is generally true but EA has no involment in this gem(just Publishing).Cytek are perfectionists and wouldn't let EA mess up their game.

Anyways, Crysis is gonna be awesome and i'm sure there will be tons of Vietnam mods and possible modern conflict and middle eastern warfare mods. However, if you want battlefield realism only option is ArmA!

I cant wait for Crysis tho, it has more of a hollywood type of game play with the nano suit. Just because it isn't realistic doesn't mean it will be fun as hell.

I don`t want to play Crysis, but Far Cry 2 for sure.
The new Cryengine can produce an realistic environment, but i doubt that it can handle really big battles.
Imagine two army's operating with infantry, tanks and air support in that engine. It would need an über PC to handle that, if the engine is capable of that at all. Posted Image

Buy the Games you play.
This should be the minimum support and respect to the Developers work.

Are hexacores delivered with the game ? Posted Image
I doubt that Cryisis will be playable on my machine and most of the "not-topnotch" machines out there. Apart from that Crysis follows a completely different idea than Arma. It creates a FPS-experience around the player, like if you´re going to the movies, while Arma gives you a world to play within.
I remember playing Far Cry and I enjoyed it. The visuals were awesome and the AI not too bad. At the point where I had to fight mutants again, I was dissapointed.
Apart from that, even if the engine was very good, I do not know if there were any serious and grown-up mods for it. I guess not.

lol you would rather play a game made by ubisoft rather than Crytek, the makers of far cry?


Actually guys, Crytek is optimizing the engine extremely well where you can play the game on a 2-3 year old PC and it will still look pretty good. You dont have to have a "top notch" pc just to run Crysis, that is a common misconception.


However, I think a mod to ArmA massive scale on Cryengine 2 would only work on high end rigs with a Quad core(talking about tons of units on screen). I really hope some talented modders could make this happen, however mod makers need to stay on ArmA and keep making awesome mods Posted Image

As we all know from hard experience , the requirenments are already toned down by the developers for " i want to sell my game" reasons.
So take the info with a sack of salt and there you go.

I beg to differ, EA gobbled up Dice and Desert Combat and see what came of that. So much for potential, and how about those ranked servers?
And where is that band that so vauntingly swore, That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country shall leave us no more? Their blood has washed out their foul footstep's pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave, From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave;
And the Star-Spangled Banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
(3rd stanza of the Star-Spangled Banner)

Hi all

Maybe I am seeing it wrong.

The graphics look cartoony and blured.

The FPS is what 1 frame per 5 seconds.

I saw very few entities at the same time other than the moire fish and crabs.

I played the first version it was rubbish on a friends computer in the hope it was better than the demo. The AI was about 1980s level what I would expect in manic miner on the spectrum.

View distance was fogged down to 50m if you moved, with back ground 2D flat scenery to cover up that it was not real 3D. You could even see the flat scenery changing when it was too far out of synch.

No MP capability whatsoever.

No control system for players to run an AI squad never mind a platoon or company or battlegroup.

Bouncy bunyhopper pogo boots.

The control system was so bad it required Auto aim for guns. Lame or what?

The cry engine does not make me cry it makes you laugh at the numptys that still consider buying it.
