Crysis 3 DX10/10.1 Patch Fix-SKIDROW (Updated 2014)
Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said that the Crysis 3 is planned to be DX11 only, destroying the hopes of people running DX10 video cards who had previously expected Crysis 3 to run on a DX11 renderer but still support DX10 just like Crysis 2.
Crysis 3 brings us fancy video rendering features like Tessellation and Ambient Occlusion that are DX11 exclusive.
But what if you have an older GPU setup like GTX 295 which is a dual GPU card and you really don`t wanna buy an expensive new card that is DX11 capable just to be able to play Crysis 3?
Well, there is a solution for that and it`s called the Crysis 3 DX10 hack.
Crysis 3 DX10 hack will let you play the game on Direct X 10 capable video card by patching and replacing some of Direct X libraries in the Crysis 3 game folder.
That means that system Direct X files will remain untouched.
Crysis 3 DX10 hack will lift up DX restriction in Crysis 3, but there are some drawbacks, like no improved Tessellation (DX11 only) and Ambient Occlusion will be completely disabled.
Here are some screenshots of Crysis 3 DX10 game play running on GTX 295:
- Fixed random GPU crash on map loading
- Speed tweaks
- Fixed slowdowns
- Fix for mission 5 crash
- Download Patch
- Unpack Archive
- Copy “D3DCompiler_42.dll” and “d3dx10_42.dll” to “Crysis 3/Bin32 folder”
- Play the game!
There is also an Uninstall.bat in case you have decided to replace your video card with the DX11 one.
In case of any bugs, feel free to leave a comment.
Have fun playing Crysis 3!
