*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.

Any particular reason this mod is suddenly causing my system to go through lag spikes? Running the game without the mod goes back to normal but for some reason using it makes my aim jumpy, even the mouse cursor suffers when I minimize it.

what kind of hardware are you running? is there a specific action that causes the spikes?

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.

You can't install through desura, you have to use the installer included in the download.

I'm having trouble getting some of the attachments in the mod. Not all them just a few, I know the sniper scope, smoke grenade launcher (even though I have the grenades for it), and a few of the new 40mm grenades are unavailable but there could be some I haven't noticed. I even picked up the sniper scope where it spawns in the vanilla game and it didn't show up on the menu.
Any solution to this problem would be much appreciated

I know that this issue does not cause a crash but your log file may reveal an issue. If you could private message to me I may find your issue. The logs are found in the game directory in the LogBackups Folder.

What executable are you using, x64 or x86/32-bit?
I have found life can be more simple running this mod in the 32-bit mode, it utilizes all the ram and cpu without any config confusion.

Also, how did you install, manually or through desura? and which version 1.0 or 1.1? I assume 1.1.

I have the same problem, using 1.1 version and using the installer of the mod.

If you're trying to use this mod with Warhead, it won't work. Kilroy (the guy that made this mod) has a work in progress mod for Warhead, you can get it elsewhere on Desura I think. I haven't been able to get that mod to work without issues myself.

Crysis warhead is not compatible with this mod at all, so what you are attempting to do cannot be done, that is why you are getting errors.

One more, I very like LMG, ex m249, m60 etc. I think you like it too. So do you have any idea to create some LMG for Crysis ? If you can, i think we need more enemys.
