All is fine here


Hello, all is going well in my life, I have not been hospitalized or have died, as some comments have suggested. And yes, I have posted in Guru3D. I spend some hours finding good SLI config for Farcry 3, Assassin's Creed 3 and Hitman Absolution. Very good games.

I bought a new motherboard, cpu and memory. Now my computer is a 2700K, G1 Sniper 3 and 32 GB of RAM. I was testing the computer, doing oc (5 Ghz for 24/7) and testing some games that I have bought and had not had time before. I have also spent time with my family and I had to do some jobs at home that had left backward by using the free time with the mod (I will post pictures for the curious).

The thing about the mod is that Crysis 2 install, Editor and material in progress, is on a IDE hard drive (I took them out of the SSD after problems in the past), and the new motherboard only has SATA connectors. Ten days ago I ordered an adapter IDE-> SATA, but I have not received it yet.

If I have not written before is because in reality these delays are affecting me more than you.

All I can promise is that the mod will come before the end of the year, whatever the cost.

  1. Have you played Dishonored? That is also very good game and looks great with sweetfx injection.

    Would it be fair of me to say Crysis 2 with maldo installed is better looking than Crysis 3? You did a truly great job and would not be surprised if Crysis does not look as good as your mod.

  4. I've been obsessed with Assassin's Creed III and Far Cry III lately. LOL. Great games, IMO. Awesome rig, congrats.

  5. Maldo, have you considered modding Far Cry 3? Your textures work is unsurpassed and second to none. If you create HD textures for Far Cry 3 it will look absolutely jaw dropping. Please, consider modding Far Cry 3!

    1. That idea sir, would hinder my progress in life. HAHA. I'd be locked to my computer.

      There is actually a quick release HD texture pack already out. Haven't used it yet. It's some where in the FarCry3 Ubisoft PC forums.

      Hows the game running for you? Besides a few issues (Now temporarily resolved until they fix it in a patch.), I think it is a great game. Their AI is pretty good in caparison of the other big FPS titles. I'd prefer more FPS's like this instead of the short, streamlined campaign architecture and structure of the cod's, bf's and crysis 2. Lately, they seem to forget about the campaign and focus more on mp. I'm not saying to neglect mp. Make it great, but they also need to focus on sp too. Not all, play only for mp and vice-versa.

      Sorry for the long rambling. LOL.

  9. That is a great promise, Maldo! Thanks again for your amazing work. Even if you just release the fixes you've done as the final version, I will be happy. Thank your wife for us!

  10. Everyone appreciates your efforts, I too have upgraded recently. And intend to enjoy many of my old games at 1080p..including Crysis 2 with MaldoHD V3.

    I look forward to your new mod release, but this time of year is important to be with family too.

    Best wishes to you!

  11. When I said Maldo died, I meant my cousin's uncle Maldo. Of course the greatest mod creator ever is still alive.

    Best wishes for you

  20. Hope that maldo will release MaldoHD v4 Final today as a late Christmas Gift ;-)
    Is there a way to change the FOV in the Game with the Mod?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. From the config tool, there's a slider that controls the FOV

      Delete
  21. Rush = no good. I would rather wait than getting a buggy final version.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Or maybe a Beta2 with all fixed till now, so the Game would be completly playable.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Five days until the end of the year. Oh well, we won't presure the man now, will we?

    Let Maldo take all the time and vacation he needs :D.

    No hurries man!

    Cryio.

    ReplyDelete
  24. He would´t let rush himselv anyway.
    Nonetheless I count the days until the final release, and with me probably the 2,000 other people who visit this site daily :-)

    Please Maestro. Give us a short feedback.
    thanks a lot for your great work

  25. have just load farcry 3 via steam.
    It´s very nice, but it´s not nearly so nice as Crysis2@MaldoHD4.
    Hey Maldo,
    We all appreciate and admire your work.
    Thank you!!!

    1. Off forum topic: Why would you waste your money on an Alienware? The money you most likely spent on it would have gotten you a custom build with heaps better specs

  27. Maldo is busy with The Amazing Spiderman at the Moment.
    He posted in the Guru3D Forum yesterday.
    Hope he will find the Time to Release a bugfree version of MaldoHD v4 soon.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The Amazing Spiderman....it's an entertaining experience, if a somewhat shallow one. The webslinging around the city is a blast. All in all, a fun game for fun's sake. I even managed to get all 500 pages :D

    Too bad the PC version doesn't have all the costumes the console versions have.

    Cryio.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm afraid that Maldo has completely lost interest in MaldoHD or Crysis2.
    In the past weeks he has not seen here anymore ;(

    ReplyDelete
  30. Do not worry. He has promised that the final release will come by the end of the year.
    I am pretty sure, he will post something at the weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  31. 2 days remainding till 31.12
    Hoppe he will...

    ReplyDelete
  32. I am sure today :€

    ReplyDelete
  33. Is there a Fix or workaround for Semper Fi if he will not?

    ReplyDelete
  34. you can copy the Semper Fi files from MaldoHD v3, but hey what is the problem to wait 2 more days for the final release??

    ReplyDelete

    1. 10000 hits past the last 5 days. I think We are not alone :-)

  36. "All I can promise is that the mod will come before the end of the year, whatever the cost"

    Well, I'm not happy thinking about worried maldo is working against time to keep his promise. I just wonder if still working on this, and know an approximate date of completion. I think after such a great job must be tired of crysis 2 and he want to do other things, but he should know that the bug semper fi or die is very "serious", if the word is appropriate. You can have clipping bugs, flickering etc ... all that is understandable, but a bug that will not let you continue the game? Can you imagine a more destructive error on game experience than one that can't you let you play??? Is it so hard to understand???!!!!

    If you maldo are tired of crysis 2 and wants to leave the mod like this, that's fine, but at least fix the bug semper fi or die, just to be able continue playing, please!! If it "helps" you, for example I (i think there will be more people like me), I'm waiting the final release to make my donation (pay for the work done and all that stuff: DDD)

    Sorry for my english, google translator help me xd.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I send him a private message throuth the Guru 3D Forum, because he is at least one there.
    He does not answere yet.
    I think the best way is to waiting till tomorow.
    For the Semper Fi Bug there is a workaround.
    Just copy the right files from v3. It's not the perfect solution, but you can at least play.

    1. Oh thanks, i'll try this. I play in directx 9, most version 4.0 changes are for dx11, so it's an excelent solution for me. Thanks.

      Delete
  38. Maldo is a perfectionist. he will release the final version only when it is really perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yeaa, so this it the reason why he will publish tomorow 11:59:59 pm :-)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I can not believe it. He probably waiting until last second.

    ReplyDelete
  41. So here we go.
    The last day of the year and i hope he will at least give us a short feedback.
    Maldo lives in Barcelona.
    Central European Time. The day is just beginning.
    So there is still a chance that he will release something.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Man, it would be so great for Maldo if all the hits to his site would result in some income for him, right?

    ReplyDelete
  43. need this...cant begin Crysis...without...m..od.

    ReplyDelete
  44. He was online at the Guru3d Forum 15 minutes ago, so he is still alive.
    So there is still hope...

    ReplyDelete
  45. oh man, if would be really a very big frustration, if it would happens nothing today ;-)
    But so what. Maldo is doing this all in his free time. we can not expect a final release bye time.

  49. Maldo no te preocupes y tomate tu tiempo, menuda panda de caraduras xd, encima que haces todo esto en tus ratos libres te exigen fecha de entrega (tambien un poco culpa tuya por comprometerte, pero bueno, somos comprensivos y te apoyamos). Animo y feliz año!!
