Crysis DX10 with DX9 GPU?!?!

NGOHQ play with config files
By Steve Dougherty from Oct 29, 2007 @ 18:48 CDT

The lads over at NGOHQ have stumbled across a neat little trick which supposedly allows one to tap into some DirectX 10 graphical enhancements even when confined to a DX9 GPU and/or they're using Windows XP.

 

It's apparently as simple as modifying some configuration files, but if you don't feel up to doing that yourself using the instructions provided, NGOHQ have kindly made available a zip file with the already modified config files.

 

They seem to be pretty assured of themselves it works, so for the sake of a couple minutes to update the config files give it a shot!
