Summary: Get Crysis 64-bit working on Windows 7 64-bit with this super-easy tweak.
Update: if you're tried the tip below and Crysis still isn't working, check out Rekonzuken's comment.
I recently did a Fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, and everything has been working perfectly...except Crysis! (the 64-bit version) When I would go to run it, I would get a blank screen and then it would crash after a while.
I've seen a few threads on the Internet about this, so I know I'm not the only one trying to play Crysis x64 on Windows 7. Thankfully, it's really easy to fix—here's what to do:
- Go to the folder where the 64-bit executable is for Crysis (Crysis.exe). Mine was located in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin64
- Right-click on Crysis.exe and click the "Compatibility" tab.
- Check the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and then choose "Windows Vista (Service Pack 2).
- Click OK, and run the game. This got it working for me.
I hope this helps you closet Crysis fans get back to it.
