Crysis 1 not starting on Windows 10. Just a black screen with the message "Crysis has stopped working." Switching to Windows 7 compatibility mode didn't fix the problem. Steam didn't have the built in compatibility patch, and file editing techniques disabled part of the functionality of the game. So I thought I would give Origin a try. No built in Windows 10 patch. Is Crysis 1 compatible with Windows 10 or is it time to give up on this game, cut my losses and request a refund?
Hey @spinned I have seen a number of users who had issues running Crysis on Windows 10 fix the issue by trying the steps in this thread: https://answers.ea.com/t5/EA-General-Questions/Color-Bit-Depth/m-p/5583228
If you can try it and let me know how you get on.
Thanks for your reply. I don't have any issues with starting and running EA Origin, just this particular game. I followed the link you provided and my settings were already at the settings recommended in the link (32-bit color 60hz). Oh well, I'll just request a refund. While web searching I found an article on some obscure forum (don't remember the name), and they posted a link to a popular reputable Polish game client that has the 1.2.1 patch for Windows 10 included in the game download. I'll give that a try since they said that the client works in the U.S.
