Installer/Config Tool update 2

This version fixes:

- Distant view reseting value when restart configurator
- Create correct "Library" folder when run as installer
- Rename "Libray" to "Library" if necessary when run as config tool

THIS IS NOT STANDALONE, YOU HAVE TO OVERWRITE OLD EXE

Download link:  Config Tool 3.0b

I put link in 3.0 version post too.

  2. Probably your computer has some problem with .NET Framework installations. Try to uninstall .NET Frameworks in control panel and then installs again.

    Download .NET framework 2.0 here:

  4. @Simplex, let's see.

    Installer copy all the necessary folders into your "crysis 2\mods\MaLDoHDv3\" folder. This seems corrects because error is later.

    Then copy 3 .dll files from installation folder to same "crysis 2\mods\MaLDoHDv3\" and here seems that process don't finds the first of the .dll that wants to copy. Maybe there is some UAC protection against copy .dll because permisions are correct, install had copied more files before error.

    You can try 2 things:

    1- Disable UAC and re-install.
    2- or, just copy those 3 .dll files into "crysis 2\mods\MaLDoHDv3\" and run setup in that folder.

    Good luck.

  6. Hello Maldo,

    Thanks for a great mod and thanks for quick reply.

    "Installer copy all the necessary folders into your "crysis 2\mods\MaLDoHDv3\" folder. This seems corrects because error is later."

    I just checked - My "mods" folder is empty, nothing is there. The error appears immediately after I choose installation directory and click "OK" button. Is there a way to manually install the mod?

    Also, I have UAC completely disabled and I am running the installer as admin.

    I am using 64bit Windows 7.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Installer asked you for crysis 2 folder or detected automatically?

    If detected, search those into your registry

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX\Games\{22B597F2-D639-409C-BDDD-294771523C88} -> "CONFIGAPPLICATIONPATH"

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX\Games\{A71969A7-6296-4E63-8942-DC110E52340B} -> "CONFIGAPPLICATIONPATH"

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX\Games\{95E3DCF8-FC7F-4C88-B98E-69D9E793E2FA} -> "CONFIGAPPLICATIONPATH"

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS\CURRENTVERSION\GAMEUX\GAMES\{90F2D2CF-EE84-4DD3-8D85-FEDD4C87B557} -> "CONFIGAPPLICATIONPATH"

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\GameUX\Games\{A8B4915A-79C6-4F7D-A8BA-AB96930A7992} -> "CONFIGAPPLICATIONPATH"

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Crytek\Crysis 2 -> "CONFIGAPPLICATIONPATH"


    Mod installs in the first of those that find into registry. If you have one of them, mods is installing there.

  8. I got the same prob as simplex my pc is a clean install win 7 x64 with .net installed all patches. I get the exemption fault when loading up the config tool set up.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Mod says that installation path could not be found in registry. I am selecting the directory manually (D:\Gry\Crysis 2\) and then mod says "Selected path is valid". I press OK and the error appears.

  10. After changing "Libray" to "Library" it have not seen any texture issues. So far so good! Also didn't you mention earlier Maldo that even if the setting say View distance is reset that it really isn't, because the view distance is pretty large for me?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hola Maldo, antes que nada muchas gracias por tu trabajo, el mod es excelente. Solamente una consulta: yo lo jugaba en DX11 calidad extreme, ¿ como hago si solo quiero las nuevas texturas y la opcion de teselacion reducida? porque noto que los parametros de la configuracion "extreme" de la utilidad no son iguales a los de la opcion " extreme" del menu del juego .Saludos desde Argentina

  12. I still get

    "ERROR - MaldoHD files dont match as expected"

    when adjusting values with the configurator.

  14. IT WORKS PERFECTLY FINE NOW.tiny glitches here and there but nothing more

  15. Thank you very much MaLDo for your awesome mod!! I love it!! I only have a little little bug with one texture.
    Look here: http://i55.tinypic.com/2hoz1va.png

    The map is "Road Rage"

    I've already renamed "libay" folder to "library"
    I hope it will be fixable, if not don't worry, this is the most important mod of the year! =D

  16. Since configurator wont let me adjust the values I edited the cfg to.I hope it works that way.

  17. Configurator says no Quality Mod by ShonE yet? Why, it is available on Crydev. It's important aspect of mod - how long before integration?

    ReplyDelete
  18. having same problem as simplex. doing a fresh install i´ll tell if it works

    ReplyDelete
  19. Is this update compatible with x64 windows? Are people with 64 bit windows the only one having issues are is just random. I have full control access over my PC uac shouldn't be a problem on my pc. I turn that sh1t off.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Maldo, this is really amazing stuff, you are a magician as well as a genius! I am using AMD HD5870 and before I had to turn off tessellation because it really slowed everything down. Now I can have everything on Ultra, with tessellation on normal and frame rate is excellent! I can even use Vsync and frame rate is still playable!! Thank you, thank you. I will donate to you.

    Two questions. I put DOF settings at High using your config tool but there is no DOF in game, only when aiming - do we have to wait for ShonE quality mod for this to work?
    Also, configurator did not put a mod shortcut on my desktop so I have to use configurator first each time I want to play...?

    ReplyDelete
  21. hey maldo.. logre instalar manualmente la configuracion de calidad de shon e con tu herramienta de configuracion..creeme.. vale la pena todo!!,, espero en la siguientes actualizaciones kede completamente integrado, y mirar si shon e logra configurar el error cuando carga sobre un punto de control..

  22. Can someone with 64bit Windows confirm that the mod works for him?

    ReplyDelete
  23. ^ Yes, I have Windows 7 64 bit, all working perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Maldo... a sugestion. Post your software configuration (windows version, driver version, .NET version, etc). Many with problems could use this as a guide to correct something not aparent.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @AndreTM, I've download my mod from internet and see that bug. There are some older files in that pak. No a big problem but I've to put some files to download tomorrow here.

    @Diablow, config file is only for config tool, don't do anything with game. Is for save settings every time you run the tool. I'm writting a new post with instructions for people that can't run config tool.

    @Unknown, config tool runs in windows 7 x64 (my main setup) and in Windows XP 32 bits (my second rig). I hope can find a clue about problems in some computers with help of us.

    @all, as said in 3.0 post, BlackFire and QMod integration will be available soon. I need to fix all problems to avoid do the work 4 times.

  26. i have no problems, win 7 64 bit latest bf3 beta drivers for geforce 580 gtx in sli. i turn on the ultra config but turned off cinema and shadows to 1.5. i also turned off particle shadows and reduced grain filter. all fine so far,

  28. Thank you so much Maldo for all this amazing work. Yes, amazing. I only have this question: is it possible to keep the variable penumbra soft shadows of DX11, so far I lose this effect when I use the mod. Thank you again, and have a nice day!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Grandisimo trabajo Maldo, ahora toca descansar un poco que te lo has merecido.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Maldo Ok my name is MIke I have been posting a lot but my name stays anonymous. Here is the deal.

    1).net framework issue - I thought it was patch that's why I get the exception fault. I tried to install it as a single program. Issue Fixed.
    I was trying to run it solo and did not realize it was to overwrite the original installer.

    Now next problem that it installed just fine is

    2) maldo hd files don't match as expected with the config tool. I have it in the directory as the mod. That's the only issue I have at the moment otherwise I love the mod man great work.

    to all others wanting to use qmod. Use 1.4 because 1.5 is built into the nano suit. I am using it and it works great. Just don't overwrite the info.xml qmod will erase maldo's if you do.

    Best regards - Mike

  31. Hey MaLDo,

    thanks for your amazing work!

    The mod is working great on my rig. Everything maxed (all sliders to the right in the config tool except FOV). Nearly constant 60 fps with my 2 GTX 480 in SLI. :)

    Maximum detail! I'm loving it!

  32. Great mod MaLDo!Couple of problems I've had: At the start of "The gate keepers" I'm seeing some flowers growing out of tiles in a garden bed on the third rooftop near the stairs. Further across the bridge I'm finding some invisible tables and some visible tables at the rooftop cafe. Other than that, it is freaking amazing. How the game should have been released. Thanks again!,
    Jay

  35. "Configurator says no Quality Mod by ShonE yet? Why, it is available on Crydev. It's important aspect of mod - how long before integration?"

    You can add it by yourself,i dit it and it works like a charm. Just overwrite the level-folders.

    ReplyDelete
  36. ^If you overwrite the level-folders you're deleting over 1000 fixes that are in new maps included in MaLDoHD 3.0

    ReplyDelete
  37. @JayJapan, if you post screenshots I will solve those problems. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  38. MaLDo, when will you add BlackFire TOD and the mod by ShonE?
    They're already done, you won't need much time to add them, just place those files and give us the link to integrate them in your mod :)
    Thank you very much

  39. Is shadows with variable pnumbra working? Can someone confirm?

  41. Whoops! I didn't mean "The gate keepers" I meant "dead man walking"! I'm not sure how to show a screen cap because I can't run the mod through steam. Any picture accounts that are easy to setup? But yeah, fall on to the glass ledge at the start of the level, jump to the next rooftop, kill the enemies then jump to the roof top after that and that's where the tile garden bed is. Right by the staircase. Some tables are invisible over the bridge. Not sure if anyone can see these problems. I got 1gb vram btw. I'll try working on getting some screens :)

  46. Lets vote for the best game of the year.So good optimazed so beautiful tessallated textures and parallax.Keep Going Maldo :)))

    ReplyDelete
  47. @JayJapanB, hi, seems you're not alone with looking for bugs syndrome XD. Those flowers are exactly the same in vanilla game. Same for table. Another guy see white textures in originals buildings. And more problems reported that are there in vanilla.

    In fact real bugs are less than I expected. One wall has not material in Road Rage start near helycopter. And someone find transparent door. I'm happy enough, shit with framework crashes for somebody. I will make something about it.

    I look later for that poster. Today I've been far away from cryengine. I'm very relaxed now. XD

    ReplyDelete
  48. hey maldo since my settings are saying extreme in the game can I turn it up to ultra and be fine??

    ReplyDelete
  49. and would it be best to disable the crytek hd texture pack and just use yours??

    ReplyDelete
  50. Don't use ingame options. The mod works this way, every config is extreme for the game, but works as you set in config tool. It's not a bug, is a feature XD

    You can use crytek HD textures or not for less memory requeriments.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Maldo can you tell me what is the visiual diffrence between verry high,extreme and ultra in your option?What effects got a verry high quality for exemple did verry high support all futures in ultra upgrade pack from cryteck?Tnx you man im gonna continued to fight agants the Bad really bad aliens LET THE FIGHT BEGIN :)))))

    ReplyDelete
  52. Those high, very high extreme and ultra are exactly the same that in vanilla game. I put there so all can see what options and slides values for config tool parameters changes in those settings. If you open config tool and set ultra and ok, it's the same that set ultra ingame. Real benefit is you can use recommended settings that are impossible to use before wit good visuals and good performance. For those with highend systems I recommend those recommended settings+ssdo+ssreflections+lod 15+distance view 8, not use ultra.

    Penumbra shadows, who have asked for them?

    ReplyDelete
  53. I mentioned the variable penumbra shadows; I found I could enable them only by using ingame "ultra". Also, if this info can be relevant, "FXAA high" is the only AA option that doesn't give me flickering with my GTX460 SLI; still a lot of jaggies, but that's not your fault! Thanks again, and have some rest after the hard work!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Well done!

    Thank you for your enthusiasm to do such a complex task like the complete overhaul of almost all textures in a game like Crysis 2, were everyone was expecting this (now!) stunning visual quality

    a) from Crytek, and
    b) from the very start (read: "F***ING RELEASE") of that game!

    Even the half-hearted 'HD Patch' looks bleak in comparison to what you did MaLDo. Now I know why I decided to buy a DX11 card and how advanced PC games could look without 'driving with the brakes on' because of consoles. I don't have any problems with consoles, games like "Uncharted" show how advanced they could be when you are developing dedicated for one platform. Nevertheless I am disappointed how a company like Crytek treated their core audience which make this franchise here what it is (was).

    "Even when you are expecting a larger potential at consoles Mr. Yerli, even then you should have shown what is maximum possible in this iteration of the series on the PC! Even only for advertising your engine in the high end range! Yes, even if doing so costs you money and the risk of amortization gets higher!" --> Chance gone!

    Ok, I stop my rant here and instead suggest to everyone to try this mod to see how textured environments can look at the end of 2011 when done right. If you like it like I do, press the "Donate" button afterwards. I did.

    Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  55. hey maldo,
    I really appreciate your hard work.

    I have just one question because I am not really sure about that.

    The mod is already DX11 or do I have to install the patch DX11 from crytek? I have patched my game to 1.9 but didnt do the DX11 patching. Should I leave it this way?

    ReplyDelete
  56. When do you post a workaround for people that get

    "ERROR - MaldoHD files dont match as expected"

    when adjusting values with the configurator ???

    Just one question: where do I put Blackfire Mod files when I want to use it together with your mod?

    Thnx again great Job!

  64. @neamtu, hi. Sorry, there are too many questions here XD

    Requeriments are 1.9 patch and if you want to play in DX11, you have to install DX11 crytek patch too. My mod adds DX11 files, but crytek DX11 patch adds main funtionality.

    Crytek HD textures are optional.

    I followed all the instructions, i have original game
