Confusedmileyindifferent:Hi everyone. Can somebody told me on what platform he played, i mean PC or Notebook, cause i think that Crysis3 is can't be run on notebooks (Nvidia ###m series videocards) even if it is with dx11 support. All my friend with PC are playing as well, but my friend with Notebooks can't cause they recieve this massage... 

 

Leave your configs, like OS, ram, Vcard series, and core.

 

thank you. It will be easier to solve this problem if we will have a more information about your system spec.

Ahhh, in my BIOS its either "Both" or "Intel" so its on both and i use AMD catalyst control center to use AMD for everything.


Modern laptops with an integrated and a dedicated graphics card are usually switching automatically between both, depending on the required processing power. Sometimes, the automatic switch can happen too late, so that the game won't start because the integrated graphics card does not fulfill the minimum requirements. In this case it might help to deactivate the integrated card temporarily.

Your graphics card driver seems to be missing or corrupt. Please run the installation again.

I saw that that DxDiag showed "DDI Version: 10.1" for my GPU. It seems like this is a bug which can be fixed with a hotfix from Microsoft. Now it correctly showes "DDI Version: 11", but unfortuntely the game still can't start so that's not the problem... I know that DxDiag doesn't show driver information but in the device manager the driver shows correctly and also is the newest one available.

Hi phileee,

 

You graphics card driver doesn't show up in the Display Devices list, so it seems it's either not installed or corrupt. Please head over to the AMD website and download and install the latest available driver again. This should resolve your issue.

I tried it 2 times now, it seems like DxDiag doesn't show the driver information for this card. In the device manager everything seems fine and I can see the correct and newest version of the driver...

I found a solution for people with NVIDIA Optimus (2 graphic card - Intel/Nvidia)

  • Go to "Nvidia Control Panel" (right click on desktop > "Nvidia Control Panel")
  • Manage 3D settings
  • Go to "Application settings" tab
  • Click to "Add" and insert path "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Crysis 3 MP Open Beta\bin32\"
  • Select "Crysis 3 mp open beta.exe"
  • IMPORTANT: In point 2. select "Nvidia Processor"

Now let's start! ;D

 

It's working on:

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M (Notebook) - my notebook

NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M (Notebook) - raidexone

 

NVIDIA ??? - catboy5
