Crysis 3 for PC Game Crash Fix at Red Star Rising Level
Multiple people report muting and disabling your sound card to get past the game crash that starts at the beginning of the Red Star Rising Level.
Unfortunately disabling and muting all my sound devices on my PC didn't solve the issue.
I posted on the Crysis 3 forum of a fix.
Now I came up with a great work around. I was messing around with the game levels to basically skip the intro level to Red Star Rising to avoid the crash. Looks like I found it.
When you start the game (pressing enter after the intro movies), use ~ and then type in map river2
Then play for a while until you get the first checkpoint. Then close the game (optional) and then restart it and you should be past the problem and now load into this level (it's past Red Star Rising's beginning). The cool thing is, you start off looking for a car to drive in this level. Awesome indeed.
I'm way past the driving sequence in the level and so far I have not crashed out of the game yet.
Good luck and hopefully no more issues until Endgame.
Hope this helps for people really frustrated about the game crashes with Crysis 3.
I like the game, very good with a eVGA 670 FTW graphics card. Playing veteran - very hard but some levels were way to easy just by walking around with stealth.
