Error: Game won't start Intel 950 Mobile Graphics

(1/2) > >>

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

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:

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.)

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.


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!
