Crysis 1 unsupported by Win 8?

No luck with anything, run in compatibility mode, administrator, no dice. Has anybody else had success?

Here a few suggestions on how to solve the problem:

I got it to work using suggestions from the steam community. If I remember correctly I had to download a 64bit bin file and then had to replace the old bin file or something like that?

I'm on Windows 8.1 Pro and it works fine, running the 32-bit version through Steam. It did take like an extra 30 seconds for it to load initially, but other than that no problems.

Ill try a fresh install without PB. hopefully that will work.
