Windows 7: Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600

20 Apr 2014   #1

Win 7 Pro SP 1
Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600

Good Evening

Any one out there that could possibly help in getting Transport Giant Gold edition (without any other mods installed) to run on my new HP model. HP Pro Book 450 G1.
What amazes me is that an older program called Freight Tycoon runs perfectly, but the TG Gold "stops" at the menu, when it wants to do the "screen resolution check".
I have it running on another pc with Win 7 Home Edition without any problems!
Is it just the diff between Win 7 Pro & Home Edition that will not let the program run?
Any ideas and or suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Thank you & have a great evening

Regards from South Africa

It's probably not the difference between the Home Edition and Pro that's causing the problem. It's likely that the game is finding something in your graphics card that it doesn't like.

Are your video drivers installed and up to date with the most recent version applicable to your PC?

It's probably to do with the integrated Intel graphics, they're not designed for gaming by any stretch of the imagination. The edition of Windows is completely irrelevant.

Not a lot theoretically. You'd have to take the processors into consideration (dual core, quad core, speed) and the amount of dedicated vRAM.
