Silly question...

I have this on the original 2007 CD but my current laptop doesn't have a CD drive. Is there a simple way to transfer the game code to Steam or is that just me just being overly optimistic?

I could buy an external CD/DVD drive but it's probably cheaper to buy another copy for £1.99.
Good memories of this game
I played this and Crysis 2 (Crysis 2 was something else) with a HD7990 (still got it) and 144MHZ 1mS monitor...awesome games if you like FPS. Great deal

Download the game from a pirate website. During installation, enter YOUR product key. Then, use NOCD patch from gamecopyworld.

Try contacting Origin support about it. Long shot, but might it doesn't cost anything to try.

edit: Or use zworld's method

You're right, an external USB CD/DVD drive will possibly cost you a tenner, but if you have loads of old cd games, maybe worth it
Thanks for the responses guys. If Steam's not on, I might go for the line of least resistance and part with £1.99.

Haha, great idea A lot of the downloads are made for NOCD and do full install...
It's like 10 years old and people still wont be able to run this
A great game!
Any decent GPU from the past 5 years is massively more powerful than what the game needs to run at 1080p with everything turned up, plus some anti aliasing. A £100 GTX1050 2GB is considerably faster than a pair of 8800 Ultras in SLI from 2007. They would have been £1000.

The problem lies with the game being built before the era of 8 core processors and multi threaded optimisation. It only runs mostly on one CPU core. GPU performance has hugely advanced in 13 years since launch. Ten times more performance, at least.

Single threaded CPU performance hasn't improved anything like as fast as that. If you get any stutter or lag, it'll be the game choking up a single core on your CPU.
My calculator can handle doom but my computer can't handle this. Send help!

I contacted origin support and got all three games. The code wouldn’t redeem on Origin and I complained and said it was a retail copy and they added it and I got the maximum edition

I had (and still have - though I don't use it) a 3470 quad core with HD7990 and ssd's, it used to run fab on this game and Crysis 2...can't remember the settings, possibly just optimal... Maybe I'll dig it out and try it...
Game works better using windows 8.1 (7drivers) then windows 10, if anyone wants to take this game seriously with settings.

Came here to say this but you explained it a whole lot better than I would have done!

So what you're saying is...your pc can't run crysis? 🤪

Yes. I am that person.
Buy this and Crysis: Warhead from GOG.

DRM free, and a LOT more reliable than other versions as a result.

I know we're all on here to save a few bob, but I'd just save myself the hassle and buy the copy again for chicken feed.
Can’t get game to play
I remember the good old days playing this. My PC couldn't run it initially... Did a complete new build using my year and half college EMA money (if anyone remembers that lol) and i was not disappointed with the game.

It was at least two generations ahead of the hardware for 1080p/1200p. This game arrived in November 2007, I remember it very well.

I remember the GTX280 and people were like zomg it manages 30FPS at 1920 x 1200! Because that was considered monstrous performance a year after launch. There were all these dual GPU cards which did better, but were not exactly the pinnacle of consistency.

I don't think a single GPU conquered (35FPS+ and smooth lol) those high resolutions until the Radeon 5870, which was the end of 2009. It was ANOTHER generation after that before you were finally looking at averaging 60FPS @ 1080p with the launch of the GTX580. Of course- without piling on the anti aliasing.

Almost 3 years to the day the game had arrived hardware finally caught up with the beast.
SecuROM - no thanks
A rite of passage and classic for any PC gamer

This game and the sabatour deal both play straight from downloading on my sons i7 quad core processor but can’t get either of them to play on my Ryzen 5 3600 system
