Yeah, everyone who plays it needs a new graphics card. The game is totally screwed up with Radeon cards, and some NVIDIA cards. Good programming idiots.

First thing, do it better if you are able to, I am sure Crytek will hire you if you are able to make that game 100% compatible to every vid-card out there in all the different hardware configs.

Second, I doubt, that in many cases it is the programming that is at fault, but rather things people do to their systems that make them unstable. Overclocking, installing newer driver without uninstalling old drivers and cleaning the registry of it, wrong BIOS setup, etc.

One suggestion, think before you make yourself look like a fool, please. /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif

Did you ensure you were using the correct video card driver?
