First thanks guys for an awesome remake of the game!!! Great fantastic work!!!

ok I know im late to the party but after getting a laptop with an i7 with built in Intel grfx and NVidia gtx 765 and installing everything right,, the game kept crashing out,, as some of you know, this was reported way back with no real solution, in all my searches on this board as well as other places the best I could come up with was no one really new why or what caused this very random intermittent problem with some users. well the final thing seemed to be it just don't work with Intel grfx. even though some like me had a NVidia card as well. so heres what I came up with from trial and error. if you just have an Intel grfx,,run it in windowed mode, it may or may not work for you. for me on the Intel grfx it only works in windowed mode.{by that I mean check the launchers checkbox for windowed mode} so here's what to do if you have a laptop that has 2 video cards. Because the game doesn't give you a choice of choosing cards, just go to the NVidia control panel and chose global settings and say the NVidia card and say apply,,that's it! im running win 7 64bit and now it plays in full screen at 1920x1080 perfectly! Good luck, Jim

Welcome on board jimtek45 :)

Thanks for your posting, it can be helpfully for other with this kind of grafx constellation.

Yes i know, Intel grafx may work or not. WHEN it works in windowed mode, then you can do a workaround to get fullscreen:

Use my WCS Launch On Secondary Monitor . Change the following in the included INI:


That's it. Now start WCS with my launcher and the WCS screen will start with a special window mode which have the same characteristics like the fullscreen mode. My launcher retrieves the current resolution and forces the engine to start with this resolution.

With this it should be possible to use Intel grafx if the standard fullscreen mode not working.
