*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.

Hey Guys,
Im using DESURA and when I click on the 'Full Tactical-Expansion V1.1 Installer" nothing happens.Any idea whats going on. Im new to DESURA so I dont know what to do. Also, even though I have uninstalled Crysis it still shows up when I click the play button. The same thing is happening with The Tactical Expansion Mod. First time around I installed the first version (Tactical Expansion Mod) and when it was done installing and I clicked launch I got a black (like the one before the Crysis intro starts) and then it went back to the desktop. Any help would be appreciated.

So I assume you have a complete, and patched up to 1.2.1, crysis install and youa re trying to launch through desura. So my question is, have you tried launching the game normally through windows and then opening the mod inside the game? I don't use desura much but below releases should be a link that says "free" which I believe will lead you to the download.

Thank you for helping out. Im very new to this mod stuff and apart from minecraft mods I dont now much else. Can you please tell me how to open a mod in game? Also I assume when you launch Crysis the version is listed somewhere in a corner on the main menu. Also I have already tried the free Tactical Expansion mod download and it did not work. Can you please tell me how you installed it?

Yeah, I mod S.T.A.L.K.E.R. a lot myself, to open the mod just select mods on the first screen where you can load savegames, etc. To find which version of crysis I use I go to the executable and right click>properties>details and check the version. I downloaded the mod off this page from in a browser: Moddb.com
Then you can use the included executable to install, and the readme is excellent and very helpful.

Also, when you have successfully loaded the mod it will say "Tactical-Expansion" in the bottom right corner.

And welcome to Moddb by the way.

So I tried to download the v1.1 from a few places and I get this Error 1334, it has something to do with Sounds1~.cab. Not sure if it is the download or what. What is Sounds1~.cab? Where is it in the computer or Crysis? Does anyone have a dropbox to the v1.1? Thanks.

Hmm, not sure why it would get choppy with the mod, I'm not having that issue and my machine is fairly old. It's possible the C++ might help, I do seem to recall needing Visual Studio in order to run the mod correctly but I could be misremembering. I know it was free, whatever it was.

Thanks for the reply. I have tried all of the C++ downloads, still my game is choppy. As a side note, I have the version 1 on this mod, that means that I should have the M107 in the game right? I am going to download the v 1.1 installer, is that the actual mod or a support for it? I've tried to download it before and apply it to Crysis but I get an error. Error 1334, something about the Sounds~1 something....... Not sure what that means... I'm going to fool around with the files.

I'm new to the whole modding thing, so any help would be great. I installed the mod with the dropbox and now what? How does the Mod work? I did a little looking and I found that there is a Mods folder in the Crysis folder. But other than that I don't know what I'm doing. I read on here that there is something about a shortcut..... But how do you create it? What do you name it? I tried starting a new game on Delta, but I don't see a difference. Do you start with anything new to know the difference? Thanks.

If you've downloaded TE v1.1 and have the game patched to 1.2 or 1.21 it should show in the mods folder when you launch the game. Select the mod and hit the ok or whatever on that screen and the game should restart. Once it restarts, the mod is enabled.

Some things I've found: The repair thing screws up your ability to pick up other weapons. Don't grab it. Also, the menus on the SASS sniper rifle bleed over on each other so you can't see what you're selecting. This only seems to happen if you have any of the alternate weapon pack loaded.

Thanks for the info, but I made sense of it all and got it to work last night. But now the game starts out fine and then gets really laggy. Not sure what the problem is....

I have a gateway p-6860fx laptop, it ran the game on very high everything fine. Now it is chopy on low. Not sure what the deal is. I played Crysis for an hour last night and I'm stil on the first half of the first mission, that is how slow it runs. I did have a msvcp100.dll error but that just went away. I have no idea how. I did a search for msvcp100 and nothing can up on my computer, it might really not be in the computer. So I downloaded on of those C++ things from Microsoft, I guess that should fix it.

Right now I am defraging my hard drive and I have done a couple other things to try and speed my computer up. Any advice on speeding up a PC would be great. Thanks guys.

Can you use the task manager while crysis is running and see what it is utilizing, you may be able to merely change its affinity and priority to get it to utilize more of your pc.
