Getting to run Crysis: on Windows 11 and on modern AMD CPUs in Origin

So I have head the problem that despite I have tried multiple DVDs, none of them would be fully readable to install the Original Crysis von 2007!

Also it was not available on Steam and the trick using dedicated CPU core commands was not working either. there is a patch but you don’t need that either. Just rename the bin32 folder to bin64 as described here and it will work 🙂

The good thing about the Origin version compared to the original DVD version is, that the Origin version automatically installs the last version of the game containing the 64bit version of the game, it is just not used by default if you don’t rename the folder!

Getting to run Crysis: Warhead on Windows 11 and on modern AMD CPUs

Playing this 2008 hit on modern environment nowadays is not that hard, despite SecureRom can’t be verified anymore:

The 2nd problem is, that the Game crashes on machines with AMD CPUs, because It should make the game use SSE/MMX code paths instead of now deprecated “3D Now!” instruction paths.

Those 2 things should make the game run for you on Windows 11 with AMD CPUs! 🙂
