This mod makes several changes to the ambient lighting and to create a (supposedly) more realistic look to the game.
1. Make a BACKUP of the "Levels" folder located in "CrysisGame" directory
2. Unzip the "Game" folder in the Crysis installation directory (C:Program FilesCrysis for example)
3. Optional but highly recommended: unzip the "System.cfg" file in the Crysis installation directory
4. Play the game
Experimental: to play directly on the desired level, double-click on "experimental.savegame.CRYSISJMSF" in "GameLevelsxxx"
The provided "System.cfg" enables all necessary effects for a very high quality with a smooth framerate. However, it disables motionblur, depth of field and hitblur, because those effects radically reduce performance, especially in fights. If you really want to re-enable them, open the file with the Notepad and just comment the desired lines with a ";" in section "SET TO 1 TO REACTIVATE". Furthermore, this "System.cfg" removes HDR glitches that appears in tree canopy and buildings.
