Game Mods, Reviews and Guides

Hello everyone.  I'm known around the web as Jester or boredgunner.  I write for (as Jester) which is the place to go for information and discussion about computer technology, gaming and more.  Here you can find my various reviews, guides and game modifications.

You'll find no download links for my Crysis modifications anymore, thanks to those at Crytek who moved their database for the launch of the most disappointing game ever, Crysis 2.  They did not move the old uploaded files so now the only way to get these mods is to message me and I'll send them to you, since after all Crysis no longer has a very large database.  :)

  • Start Crysis, use the modloader to load the mod.
  • After restart of Crysis, open console (~) type in "con_restricted 0" (without the "")

NOTE: You can use this mod only with Crysis Version 1.2 and above.

Known Bugs:

To spawn more SCAR Incendiary ammo or shotgun shells for the shotgun attachment, use the following console commands.  It must be entered into the console EXACTLY as it is below.

High End Graphics Mod v1.1 with my Custom ToD v1.1

This is the graphics mod I use.  There are two versions - one for Crysis, one for Crysis Warhead.  Performance is in between high and very high (the ToD actually increases performance), while the visuals are far better than very high settings overall.  Here are pictures of the mod and the ToD combined (ToD = time of day).

Installation instructions and system requirements can be found in the links below.

Download: Will add ModDB page here later, it isn't uploaded yet

Time of Day v1.1 Download: Will upload to ModDB


So I'm sure you're all wondering, "How well do these mods perform?"  Here are the benchmark results, I think you'll like them.  First, the system.

  • Cooler Master ATCS 840 -> 6x 120mm fans and one 160mm fan on the case alone
  • Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
  • EVGA P55 FTW
  • Intel Core i5 760 @ 4.2 GHz
  • 2 x 2 GB G.SKILL ECO Series DDR3 1600 CL7
  • (EVGA) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 @ 825/1650/1000
  • Western Digital Caviar 320 GB SATA (7200 RPM 3.0 GB/s)
  • Dell ST2310 -> 23" 1920 x 1080, 60 hz, HDMI/DVI/VGA (I'm using HDMI)
  • Antec TruePower New 750W (62A/744W continuous on the +12v rails)

The Crysis games aren't the only ones I have created modifications for.  I have public mods for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series as well.

CoP Remix v1.1 - My S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat mod.  Very well received and updated.  Lots of modifications and it isn't any less stable than the vanilla game.

CS Remix v1.3 - My S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky mod.  Well received, very stable.

Also check out these mods for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl.  It adds the Build 1935 Garbage or Dead City to the game!
