    Where is this option? I can not find it. Crysis 64Bit still exits on load. I also tried the profile that is in GJ for Crysis 64Bit and it exits and starts to build the profile when the game starts load.

    Give me a few hours as I must run into town and I'll play with that one and see if I can get it running.

    Just a follow up. If you use the profile that GJ made and exited early, GJ will start to load Crysis 64Bit then it says GJ is exiting, BUT you can switch over to the Crysis window and it plays fine.

    This is Crysis 1.1 also.

    I tried to get 1.1 update but can't see where to download it without it being a torrent which I don't do. The regular profile didn't wprk so I am trying it in a different method in GJ. I will report what I found as well.

    I tried the fully supported and it took a bit longer to make the profile so I was hoping that it would work but get ms client must close. So the 64 bit profile doesn't work.

    You can grab the update from EA or GameSpot without any trouble.

    The way I made a working profile is I selected Create a profile, then selected Crysis 64Bit, and did not change any other options.

    It will start the game, then GJ will exit and start to make the profile B4 the game even finishes loading. I exited as soon as I got to the main menu and let GJ finish up the profile. Now when I launch the profile it start to load then GJ exits and the game will finish loading. I played about 10 mins. without any probs.

    I only have 1 other 64Bit game and that is FarCry 1.22 I will install it and see how it does I guess.

    Yes... this issue here is that GJ can not see the 64-bit process (and therefore shuts down the profile before the game has finished). What you can do is to uncheck "Auto shutdown" in advanced options, or set the advanced profile option "Auto shutdown the profile after X seconds" to 60 or 90 seconds.

    FYI we are looking into fixes for this issue.

    My computer is freezing when I try to make profiles for different games (Command and Conquer 3, Gears of War, Crysis, and more). However, a few games do not freeze Game Jackal, such as Age of Empires 3, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, and Black and White 2.

    Hi matt, I tried the above quote and when I try to start the game after the profile ife ,ade I get the Crytek pop up stating to use the CD/DVD instead of image (1000)?

    Charlie I have gotten that one also. It went away after I rebooted or I would open then close the drive and try to load the game again. See if that does anything.

    I will give turn off the off the auto shut down.

    Again looking good guys, I wish everone supported their stuff like you guys do.

    Does the Battlefield plugin update have anything to do with the parameter passing problem I mentioned in this post?

    Confirmed! I see you changed the format of bf.bat as suggested. Cool.

    Thanks for getting that fix in :clap:

    jreffner Active Member Crashing Vista here too

    64-Bit Vista Ultimate is crashing when I try to make profiles.

    No bad screens, just nothing works. Even control-alt-delete won't bring up anything. The power button is the only way to go.

    I'll be happy to provide logs if you want them and tell me where to get them.

    Here's the info needed. I don't get no issues with GJ running but Crysis is an issue but it is getting worked on too.
