Can you give me a walk-through on how to get the Crysis.exe? (I'd rather not look on my own...)

right click on the start button on the bottom left of your windows desktop

choose explore

scroll down and select your CD/DVD drive with the Crysis CD in it
 
right click on it and choose explore again

the folders are there

hope that helps

Kind regards

JTK

The Cd Key is on the back of the manual that came with the game disk

not good

i dont suppose you know where it went ?, maybe phone them and ask them to read it to you ?

i think there is a no CD crack, but i dont think it will help with this mod, my server is getting a few disconnects with an "invalid CD key" message.

you really need a good key by the looks

the only other thng i can think of is to check the Crysis forums for advice on missing keys.
you might be able to mail the Crysis devs, and quote the serial numbers/bar code on the back of the cover (bottom right) and ask for them to mail you one.

it sounds like a long shot, but i had a mate with a broken Mercs CD do this and they sent him a brand new CD for free

start here and check contacts

someone on the last link suggests ringing EA support.

you may indeed be able to quote the barcode from the back of your cover and have one reissued

good luck, hope this helps

ive updated my step by step, i hope reposting here isnt spam.............

this is my step by step guide, based on my own experience, its written for my clanmates
i post it in the hope its of some help to others
here goes...............

The first thing to keep in mind is this is a Beta version.
by choosing to install it, you accept the fact that you will be doing so as a beta tester. its not all beer and skittles.
this is also written on the assumption you have the Crysis CD, not a copy from D2D or Steam.

i recommend a clean install of Crysis, though thats not mandatory, and i suggest you create a profile if you havent done so.(make sure you have your original CD key before uninstalling and reinstalling though)

i also strongly recommend making a copy of Crysis.exe and placing it in a seperate folder (this will help with an issue to do with emulation software if it comes up)
you can find Crysis.exe in either

C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\bin32 (if you are running windows 32 bit)
or
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\bin64 (if you are running windows 64 bit)

now we need to patch Crysis, this is done in two steps

first install this patch

http://crymod.com/filebase_redirect.php?fid=4701

then this one

http://crymod.com/filebase_redirect.php?fid=5161

This will bring your Crysis install up to the 1.21 hotfix level ready for the mod.

a check of the bottom right corner of your Crysis main menu screen should show the numbers 1.1.1.6156. this will confirm the 1.21 hotfix is installed.
if you get an error message saying

conflict with emulation software detected

replace the Crysis.exe file in bin32 (bin64 for windows 64 bit) with the one we saved earlier. this will fix that error message

next download the mod file.
i got mine here, and so i can verify it works ok

http://www.onionwars.net/mwll/MWLL-OpenBeta1.rar

full list of dowload sources are here
http://www.mechlivinglegends.net/forum/index.php/topic,6217.0.html

now to open the .Rar file you need winrar, a free copy can be Downloaded here

http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR/3000-2250_4-10745708.html

now this is important, dont just right click on openbeta1 and extract.
right click on the winrar icon and run as administrator, if you dont do this on vista you will get errors creating the target files.
run winrar "as admininstrator" and then select the MWLL-OpenBeta1.rar file, and extract to
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis
using the extract and overwrite option

almost there,

next we need to find the file
"example_actionmaps_for_joystick.xml"

it should be in
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\mwll\mods



Copy and Paste this file to your Crysis profile found in - My Documents\My Games\Crysis\Profiles

You will have to paste to both profiles (if you have another one besides the default Crysis)

ensure you do this in both the default and YOUR PROFILE directory
My Documents\My Games\Crysis\Profiles\default\actionmaps.xml
My Documents\My Games\Crysis\Profiles\JamesTKirk\actionmaps.xml

Finally delete your old "actionmaps.xml" and rename the copied "example_actionmaps_for_joystick.xml" to "actionmaps.xml"

dont worry about the word joystick, this applies even if you dont have one



now create a shortcut on your desktop, point it to the Crysis.exe file in

C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\bin32 (for windows 32 bit)
or
C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\bin64 (for windows 64 bit)

now right click on your shortcut and choose properties

and in the target box paste this (including the quotation marks/rabbits ears)
"C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Bin32\crysis.exe" -mod mwll”

replacing the original target string thats there.

now click on the shortcut and Crysis will launch
it will launch like normal, dont worry
once the main menu is up click on the mods tab, and choose the MWLL mod, you will get a message saying game will restart, say yes........

and it restarts in MWLL mode

now there is no offline content at this stage, its all multiplayer, so you will need a gamespy comrade account (this gets installed during the original crysis install from cd, but you can find it in the subdir on your CD called comrade. run this and create an account. you can actually uninstall comrade afterwards once the account is created if you want (i did) but you need this account and password to access multiplay.

and thats it, simple really

there will be bugs, its a beta version
but ive installed it using these directions and have played online, and hosted a dedicated server.

Good luck, and feel free to contact me if you need help

keymap is here

http://www.mechlivinglegends.net/images/betaimages/MWLLKEYMAP.jpg

Hotfix.

this will upgrade your beta install to version 3

download the hotfix patch file

http://www.thelivinglegends.net/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;id=78

you want the file called MWLL-OpenBeta1-Hotfix1.rar

once you download it, run Winrar "as administrator"

point it to this new file and extract it into

C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis

using the extract and overwrite option

click the "yes to all" button when prompted

and its done

you will now be able to join the version 3 servers

-You must have Crysis install to do this-
-You must have Crysis up to date-

Download the 1.2 patch and the 1.21 hot fix patch for Crysis and install the 1.2 first then the 1.21

Download MWLL (in a .rar or .zip file formats) Open it, should see a Mods folder, unzip it to your desk top.

The Mods folder must go into your Crysis folder (Mine: C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis)

If you use Steam or EA Download Manager they they are different.

Steam (C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Crysis

EADM (Download Manager)    go to your desktop, Right click on the Crysis Icon and click on 'Open File Location'
It will take you to a bin32 or bin64 folder, Back out of that and your in the Crysis folder, drag and drop the Mods file in here.

Run Crysis, click on mods, you will see MWLL, click it and Load it, game will close out, then MWLL will start. Or go into the Mods folder and you will see the MWLL Launcher, copy it and make a short cut on your desktop, a Program will pop up and you select Bin32 or Bin64 (Most use Bin32 for 32bit OS and Bin64 are for the 64Bit OS)

HotFix - Go to the Crysis/Mods folder - After downloading the HotFix from MWLL site unzip it and move the files into the Mods folder - rewrite all.... Finshed

It's good, you have one error. It's C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\Mods\mwll and not C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\Crytek\Crysis\mwll\mods

The only problem I have now following this guide is all the servers I try to connect to say "Server Authentication failed" after 3 tries or something similiar follows.

Here is a tutorial I put together for my not-so-tech-savvy friends.  Thought it would be useful here.

http://docs.google.com/Doc?docid=0AaJP7SZdoMxxZGQ3OXFiam5fMGRxOTR2bmRy&hl=en

I also have another with a few more pictures, but the Google Docs file limit is 500kb.

Hope this helps!

I am so happy that this mod has finally got into the beta testing. I have been following this sight for about 6 months now(first post). Ok  my problem I have installed and unistalled Crysis plus MWll 4 times now and I keep getting the same error. "Crysis.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." I am running Windows XP, Intel Core 2 Duo at 3.2ghz each, GeForce 7950 GX2, Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme and 4 GB of ram. If someone could please help me that would be great.

You have to be more specific. When exactly does that error occur? What action caused it?
