I FOUND A FIX!

 

Hey guys, I found a fix. Well at least it worked for me. My laptop has 2 graphics cards, when its running default programs it use integrated graphics, and when gaming it switches to a Geforce 540M (which is DX 11). 

-It wont work for everyone, since you may not have two cards.

To fix,

1. Open your Nvidia control panel

2. Under 3D Settings - Click Manage 3D Settings

3. Under global settings - Set your preferred graphics card to your gaming one

4. Apply and play!

 

5. If it didn't work, try also changing Set PhyX Configuration to it.

 

Also change it back to what is was once your done, don't want your computer to use your main graphics while browsing the web.

I tried all I could, even spoke to Origin official, then I installed again the AMD ATI Catalyst Suit the 13.1 version they got on the website, but still no hope for trying the game ... Seems those that have ATI cards are doomed ... this is the end. We must wait till they make something. For those that are on Nvidia, they already got the latest driver on the offical website.

My ATI is also unsupported, as i can see in my log. I deactivated my ONboard in the BIOS, so only my real Gaming-Graphic-Card is active and crysis cannot work with it, as you can see in the log:

You're right ruffryder, I got a Dell Inspiron 15 R with dual graphics cards and settings worked perfect as you said, tried out with no issues. Thanks for the tip.

Is this just a joke or a temporary solution? Because I, and a lot of others won't buy a new graphic card to play a game.  That means that I won't also buy this game if it doesn't come out for dx10 graphic cards... Can't even imagine how many peope I would be killing right now if I bought it and got this message after installation...
