  1. Please add a AF option in your config tool

    1. AF must be activated in gpu drivers.

  2. Maldo, is it possible to compress your installer so the mod is less than 800mb? Would be nice to burn it onto a backup dvd of crysis 2 w/ the dx 11 patch & update 1.9

  3. without Mod the little stones look better Maldo ;)

    without mod

    with mod

    chicken :)

  4. Hi maldoh, what about the semper fi or die map, is it already fixed? it cant be loaded only black screen appear. tnx

  5. hey Maldo your work is awesome. I think when you are done with Crysis 2 you should consider the game Rage as your next project. The textures in that game were pretty bad and John Carmack said that he is going to be putting out mod tools shortly as seen here

  6. This sounds great! However would it be possible for there to be a final release and a 'patch' for the beta? I'm not particularly keen on re-downloading the whole package when the majority of it works brilliantly :)

  7. Personally I would love to see better textures in Dishonored :)

    Great work maldo, can't wait for the final release!

  8. Still can't play it on Win8!! Game runs fine with DX11 full screen, but as soon as MaLdo mod is implemented I get undefined resolutions.

    1. Before I thought it was just Win8, because before the release of Win8 it did that regardless of MaLdo. Now with the release of Win8, mod-less DX11 works great, BETTER than Win7 in fact. But now I see that the mod caused the undefined resolution. Now whether or not it is a conflict with MaLdo to 8 or 8 to MaLdo is irrelevant, the fact is now the game worked without, but does not work with.

    2. ZAM, have you tried with second level of antialias? (Fxaa). Maybe smaa injector doesn't work in w8.

    3. What is the same? My mod includes as optional the smaa injector. Injector works with d3d dll and is the only thing that can broke resolutions. MaLDoHD itself, without injector, can't broke resolutions, is impossible. So, disable injector in config tool or search for support in smaa injector developer forum.

    4. Otherway, if you can launch crysis 2 without the mod, why not load mod in the mod menu inside the game?

    5. I Disabled the Injector entirely. Before I just disabled SMAA for FXAA in the MOD which is why I said the same thing happened (undefined resolution. Can I use the Injector via the Nvidia driver? And if I do will it have a negative effect on the Mod?

    6. When I completely disabled the Injector the Mod and game works.

    7. Ok, fxaa into nvidia drivers works without injector. If you disable smaa in mod tool is the same that delete dxgi.dll in your crysis 2\bin32 folder. With that file deleted, mod works exactly the same way that crysis 2 without mod. Launch game without mod and then activate maldohd in crysis 2 menu.

  9. There is a problem in level when u meet Chino and he is giving u a gun, this level just dont wanna to run, have only black screen. Also before this gonna be released, where i can fix this r_drawnearfov ?

    1. This is madison square level, is listed as fixed bug.

    2. is there a fix available for download?

  10. Also have a idea, allow to carry more than 2 weapons at same time..

  11. some little bug
    in the level where you can't pass because there is a big tank and you have to take one
    and here
    Problem with the bottom of the floor lamp.

  12. MaLDoHD If I use your control panel can I boost settings in nvidia control panel as well for more eye candy if yes witch ones Also do u recomend any other injectors or this is all included in your mod i have 680 GTX thanks

  13. Can u tell how u fixed r_DrawNearFov ? Crysis 1 have same problem...

  14. added -mod MaldoHDv4 to the shortcut and mod dont launching from start. Using steam version Maximum Edition. Any solution ?

  15. Maximum edition is broken .... This is such bs its origin and steams fault, origin is blocking ods on maximum edition. Maldo is there a fix?

  16. when u will realease this version with all this fix?

  17. So here we are 2 months later. Any updates?

  18. final isnt released yet, is it? stupid madison sqaure map is anoying xD
