*IMPORTANT NOTE CONCERNING DESURA*: Desura should work now, so long as you download the full installer instead of DL/installing through Desura.

The full change log is 18 pages long, but here is a highly summarized list of the mod's features, omitting details like damage changes.

Full details can be found here: Crydev.net

Note that the full change log is very, very long (>90,000 characters). It will take some time to read but it's worth it.

Should you decide to download this, please be sure to read the installation info, which is in a separate "readme" file.

**Note**: There's a mistake in the install info. "Assault" should be "Harbor" instead. You're not missing a level.

**IMPORTANT Note**: Do not use the in-game mod loader to load the mod, as it does not work properly for DLL mods. Use a modified shortcut or the CryTools launcher.

Perhaps you could add the compound bow and typhoon from Crysis 3?

So when you are opening the crytools launcher it is giving you the error message saying that the pathway is denied? Which path, the program has 4 different pathways to different temporary folders, etc. One of those file locations could not exist so when the program looks for it it cannot find it. Please continue this on my page, and sign into moddb if you have an account.

Running an i7 950 OCed at 3.25ghz, 16gb of DDR3 ram, and a GTX 780 Ti SC. Just aiming around causes the lag spikes. The framerate counter stays silky smooth, which is so weird.
