Wow! All I can say is WOW!!! Very original! I am stuck at one point but I will figure it out. BTW - How did you get the main menu to start with your map when you start a new game? I couldn't find a definitive answer on Crymod. I have a mod that I would like to have work that way but I can't figure out how.

Thanks and great work!!!

I hate to be annoying but I too would love to know how to make a custom main menu. Crymod provided no answers.

Btw, very beautiful mod.

You've got to edit and recompile the game code to create a custom DLL for your mod to achieve that. There's some information on the Crymod forums, although I don't think there's a proper tutorial for that.

You'll need Visual Studio first. To know how to edit the game code (not particularly the menus though), check out this video: Wiki.crymod.com

And to edit the menu itself, I don't remember the exact process but you should look for "island" in the whole code database and find where the default level is defined (cause its name is Island). Replace that with the name of your own level, compile the DLL (for both x64 and x86) and place that in your mod folder under Bin32 and Bin64.

Hope that makes sense, it can be a pain to go through all this if you don't need any other changes done to the code, but that's a nice plus to be able to run your level directly from the menu.

This is probably a stupid question, and i should probably play the mod before i posted this, but has this mod got anything to do with the anime film ''Grave of the Fireflies''?

Nothing at all, except for the fireflies I guess. :)

hey just wanted to say great mod! just started playing, but I think there's one bug I've already found. maybe its intentional but idk, it goes back to normal whenever I reload a save. Whenever you get "cold" or touch water, the screen goes blurry and stays that way even after you've heated yourself up.

I have an issue: if I approach an heat source the screen gets all blurry until I save, exit and restart the mod. Any idea?

I believe it's got to do with your settings. Some people reported that changing the value for Motion Blur I think did the trick, like if it's maxed out it won't go away afterwards. I have no idea what creates this bug, I'll look into it when I find the time

Is this for crysis only? Or will it be on crysis wars or warhead one day?
Also I have to say this mod is beautiful. Amazing job.

I've installed this and I (think) am on the latest patch (main screen = 1.1.1.6156). Each time I try and run the mod it says a reboot's required. Any ideas?

By the way, in case I'm not on the latest patch, I tried both 1.2 and 1.2.1 installs and both gve a windows error. This is a Steam install with Steamapps sitting on my non-system drive (D: not C:). Cheers!
