Cannot install alpha demo; Advice?

Post  Leaves on Thu Oct 11, 2012 12:22 am

I'm pretty sure the problem is that my decrepit old laptop does not meet the system requirements, but I thought it was worth a shot to ask for advice.

When I try to install the demo, I get an error message that says "No suitable graphics card found. Could not find a Direct3D device that supports the XNA framework HiDef profile" etc.

My video card is a NVidia Geforce Go 7400. OS is Vista.

Can anybody explain to me how to adjust the display properties to try to make the thing work? Pls?

Sadly that video card is not supported. Sad

Here is a pretty comprehensive list of cards that are compatible with the XNA HiDef profile. http://www.xnawiki.com/index.php?title=Graphics_card_compatibility

Modern GPU, says "No suitable graphics" etc

I have an Nvidia GTX 680 graphics card with the latest drivers. I have .net Framework 4.0 installed, and rebooted after installation. However, it still says I do not have a suitable graphics card.

Is there anything I can do to trick it into running? The game looks awesome and I'd love to give you guys some money!

Hey Frawg, after doing some research I believe the error might come down to two things.

1) The game is attempting to launch at a resolution not supported by the graphics card. (The game defaults to your monitor's native resolution on launch)
2) Driver issues.

Possible solutions:

1) I have been planning to add a launcher to the game that allows the user to specify graphic settings before the game starts. This may do the trick, but unfortunately I have not implemented it yet.
2) You may want to try downloading the latest non beta drivers and perform a clean install. You can perform a clean install by choosing to do a Custom(Advanced) installation of the drivers.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
-Paul

Your comment about the native resolution gave me an idea. I set my desktop resolution to 1920x1200 and it runs! My monitor's default is 2560x1600.

No other changes required, thanks for the quick response!
