Graphics card not supported ?

Recommended Posts

Just bought BOS and installed it on my old laptop.

After installing and trying to play I get a DirectX error: card not supported...

 

I have an HP Elitebook 8440p with an Intel i5, 6Gb and an Intel HD card...

Is there anything that I can do ?

 

Thanks

Sorry, the only thing you could have done BEFORE buying BOS would have been reading this:

 

Minimum system requirements

  • OS: 64-bit Windows® 7 (SP1) / Windows® 8 / Windows® 10
  • CPU: Intel® Core™ i5/i7 2.8 ГГц
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660/Radeon HD 7770 with 2GB VRAM or better
  • DirectX: Version 11
  • RAM: 4 Gb+
  • Sound Card: DirectX®-compatible
  • Storage space: 23 Gb+
  • Internet connection: 256Kb/s for single-player career, 1Mb/s and faster for multi-player
  • DirectX® compatible flight stick is recommended

Sorry, I don't want to be harsh, but why didn't you check it first?

 

Cheers

Wow that's really ancient.

The 8440p is pretty exactly 10 years old, running an old i5-540M/520M processor with one of the first integrated Intel graphics solutions "Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD".

IL-2 Great Battles already does support a whole lot of graphics chips which are way below the minimum requirements, for instance I've successfully launched it on two Notebooks, one with an i5-4210U (Intel HD Graphics 4400) and one with a Pentium 2020M (Intel HD Graphics for 3rd Generation Intel Processors) - you can't really "play" IL-2 Great Battles on any of these, but it runs.
