Error: Game won't start Intel 950 Mobile Graphics

(1/2) > >>

emironov:
Just tried to play the game on my HP 1000 Netbook.

Specs:
xp sp3
2gb RAM
1.6ghz Intel Atom Processor
Intel Mobile i950gme integrated graphics card  (correction 950, not 945.  945 is the chipset)
Graphics card driver version: 6.14.10.4926

I honestly have no idea if the graphics card can run the game, but I do believe it should start the game up, which it is not doing.

Specific Error on the screen:

Error: Unable to start the game.  It appears that your graphics hardware does not support Direct3D 9.

I am able to go through dxdiag and run the direct3d tests from 7, 8 , and 9 all of which work.

Ideas or anything you want me to try?  (Graphics drivers updated, and it didn't make a difference.)

emironov:
Looking online, I know the card will run 3dmark 2006, granted with a score of 100 or so, but it will run it.  GPU-Z also says it has direct X 9 support, and SM 2.0 support.

emironov:
I have the dxdiag file if you want me to email it to you.

Yup.  It looks like your card should support DirectX 9.  Here are the spec I found online:

I'll look into this.  Thanks for the input.  I may have more specific questions for you later.

One thing to try: make sure that hardware acceleration is enabled...

Display properties -> settings tab -> advanced -> troubleshoot tab ->
enabled full hardware acceleration.

A bit of a stab in the dark, but worth a try.  If that doesn't work, and you're willing to spend some time working with me to figure this out, email me and I'll send over a customized build that returns a more detailed error message and attempts to create a graphics device with several different settings.

To all the beta testers, thanks for participating!
