No suitable graphics card has been found.

Post by Taco » Mon Jun 03, 2013 7:25 pm

Ive recently bought reus from steam, and it grants me with an error saying:

No suitable graphics card found.
Could not find a Direct3D device that supports the XNA Framework HiDef profile
Verify that a suitable graphics device is installed.
Make sure the desktop is not locked , and that no other application is runing in full screen mode.
Avoid running under Remote Desktop or as a windows service.
Check to display properties to make sure hardware acceleration is set to Full.


And here are my computer thingamajigs:

Operating System: Windows Premium 64-bit
System Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard
System Model: Presario CQ56 Notebook PC
BIOS: Default system BIOS
Processor:Celeron(R) Dual- Core CPU T3500 @ 2.10 Ghz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 4096MB RAM
DirectX version: DirectX 11


Also;

Name: Mobile Inter(R) 4 series Express Chipset Family
DAc- type: Internal
Monitor: Generic PnP Monitor

(if i'm missing out some important stuff, please do inform me)

Seems fine to me.
I've tried reinstalling the game, XNA and Visual Studio 2010. I've also verified the game files in Steam, and tried to run it with administrator rights. Not working.

I also tried to use the Event Viewer, but nothing appeared in the application log.

Thanks for anyone who tries to help, it would be appreciated.


I want to play this game :c

What is missing is your graphic card.
I believe it is not directX 10 compatible so you will have to wait until the devs finish to lower the requirements.

Are you on a laptop ?

Check if your laptop has two video modes.

One may be the default "graphic card" provided by the constructor.
The second may be your better "graphic card". DxDiag picks up the Intel chip by default.

Try make Reus working by right-clicking on it and choosing 'Run with graphics processor -> High-performance (or something like that) video card'.

tbhI don't know how to find out do I have 2 video modes
And right-clicking Reus doesn't bring up an option of that sort

I guess you do not have 2 graphic cards then ...
I am sorry but you will have to wait until the requirements are lowered :/.
If you have another computer with a directX compatible graphic card you should be able to play on it :<

Thankfully I have one, and reus works on that. I just use my laptop more often.
Do you have an idea when requirements are lowered?

The ETA is 3 month from now.
They do not have a clear idea of how much time it will take.
