    He was probably only posting to build his post count so he could post a link in another thread.

    Yes, it's true. But, I didn't want to do it though.
    However, I really didn't think they would, except I posted it before I saw it was released yesterday.

    Strange, I installed only the 1.9 patch (not the hires texture pack or tesselation pack)
    Memory usage of the game doubled and made it pretty much unplayable :(

    Memory usage went from ca 500MB to 900MB
    My card only has 512MB :(

    Tried rebooting and both XP x64 and Win7 x64, same issue in both operating systems, it was fine in patch 1.8...

    Sorry I should have mentioned, I had the "Very High" spec before the patch (This was the middle setting)

    After the patch even if I lower the settings to the lowest available the game still uses 900MB memory :(

    I think he's talking about his GPU

    I am talking about my GPU, I use Rivatuner to monitor it...

    get a better graphics card? My GTX 460 1GB runs everything maxed with a 40FPs average. I do have mine heavily overclocked though... regardless, you have 8gb of ram, maybe you should upgrade your graphics card?

    I might upgrade my graphics card, tho first I'd like to rule out any other possible bugs. (Especially since the game ran great with the previous patches on my hardware)

    I just found a workaround, when I launch Crysis 2 with the v1.9 patch these are the stats reported by Rivatuner v2.24c:

    Videomemory usage: 995MB
    Local videomemory usage: 492MB
    Non-local videomemory Usage: 503MB

    At this point FPS is in the 10's > 20's and the game runs like a dog...
    If I ALT+TAB out to Windows and then right back in the values changes like this:

    Videomemory usage: 495MB
    Local videomemory usage: 460MB
    Non-local videomemory Usage: 35MB

    The game now runs great with about double the FPS...
    I even get it to eat about 2500MB Non-local videomemory Usage sometimes, FPS is even worse then...
    The game also managed to hardlock my PC once when testing, and corrupting the savegame files, luckily I had them backed up so I could just restore them...

    I actually had Rivatuner running when I patched the game from v1.2 > 1.8 > 1.9
    You can see that in the attached PNG
    So the peaks go from left to right, v1.2 > v1.8 > v1.9 (This is where the marker is located, then two more peaks follow where I restart the game twice trying different graphical settings, I had not realized the ALT+TAB trick at this stage...)
