Business, I’m in it!
Okay I’ve got the sandbox working as well as Crysis itself.
Performance is amazing, settings at full, running stupidly smooth!
The editor is even better. My interface is now fixed, the missing menus from the bottom of the layout are back to normal (omg), and visuals and performance is incredible. I never had motion blur like this before in the editor!
There is just a small issue I need to address by re-installing Crysis in a different directory.
For some unknown reason, Crysis installed by default into the “Program Files (x86)” directory, which Windows will not allow any modification of. Even as admin with full permissions, it won’t allow it. That’s funny, I own this computer… Hmm..
The problem lies in the way security tokens are handled. If I load up the editor, it loads it as a regular user, not as admin, so when I try to save the map or even generate a surface texture, it counts this as trying to write or modify, which it won’t allow. If I run the editor as Admin its fine, but this means running through bat files won’t work unless I define “run as admin” in the command line.
This would also apply to any application outputting files into the Crysis directory. 3DS Max, Photoshop, CrazyBump, etc.
Its simpler if I just move the Crysis installation to the regular Program Files directory.
This shit was driving me crazy. Even just modifying my bat files to point towards the new 64bit executables, I couldn’t save them. It would keep coming up “access denied”. Much hair pulling and abuse was thrown about.
Shouldn’t be long now, installation at about 50%.
It will be interesting to see if the editor crashes every 10 minutes like it used to..
Oh great.. It installed back in the x86 directory.. Seriously WTF.
It defaults any installation that contains any 32bit files to that Directory. Great.
I forgot to mention, right clicking on a program and changing compatibility to always run as admin is not available. All options are greyed out.
