Cryengine 5.2.2 releases, bringing various bugfixes

Cryengine 5.2.2 is now available for download, with a host of fixes to issues found and reported by the community.

The Cryengine team offer thanks to their "ever-vigilant" community for the bug fixes and this release has 22 fixes.

This is the second minor release since Cryengine 5.2, which brought DirectX 12 multi-GPU support, its complete DX12 renderer, full C++11 support for engine code and other features. Looking forwards, Cryengine 5.3 is due in mid-November, with planned support for Vulkan graphics cards and other improvements you can see on Crytek’s public roadmap page.

For the full release notes, see below


Fixed: (Linux) RenderThread stackoverflow. Increment stack from 128kb -> 256kb.

Tweaked: Increment some stack sizes to prevent potential stack overflow.


Tweaked: Note that redistribution of mfc140.dll from Windows/system32 is okay.


Fixed: Other players not rotating by default.


Fixed: Top down shooter bullet mass being inconsistent with the other templates – fixes boxes not moving when shot as in other templates.

Fixed: Template player being revived outside of Editor game mode

Graphics and Rendering

Fixed: (Render) Enabling Total_Illumination_v2 will make dissolving of shadows choppy.

Editor General

Fixed: Crash that was occurring when a toolbar was loaded and contained a non-existent & non-custom command.

Fixed: Importing alembic files (.abc) doesn’t work in Live-Version 5.2.1.
