I don't know if this is the correct place this but I will write anyway.
First please apologize my poor English, second I wan't to congratulate you for this awesome blog.
I got two questions. I got the same specs on my laptop that you have, I'm running Vista and I wan't to know which configuration you use in Counter Strike because I only get 10 FPS.
I also notice that Civilization IV is on the Unplayable section. I don't know why because I can run it, I can even run Beyond the Sword. Thanks in advance

ElbErtZai said...

You came in the right section, well, this is because during that time, i was using Window XP and only have 512mb ram..since i change to Vista so i have to retry some games to reanalyze.
Which Counter Strike do u mean, 1.6 version or Sources?

dennis said...

Hi, I found your blog from Titan Quest forum, and your site is very good for 945 users.
I got problem when I try to play Titan Quest on my laptop which has very similar configuration:
Intel Core2 Duo T 5500 1.66
Vista Home Premium with SP 1
1.5 G RAM
945 GM with latest driver (15.8.3)

But the game prompted error: graphica device initialization failed

I checked some web sites, and somebody said the game cannot be played on the Integrated video card, but somebody saide it does.

Do you have any idea? Thanks a lot!

ElbErtZai said...

Titan Quest is unplayable due to the FPS in-game
Better give up on that game =/

Anonymous said...

Firstly i want to say your blog is very helpful, i have found alot of interesting things in here. i got a laptop which have the same spec that you have, i just want to ask you a question about Doom 3 ( Which seeting that i should use in my laptop ? ). Because I heard somone said that they can play this game in high seeting, is it real ?. Thanks

Guldan said...

(Here I repost to the Discussion Section)

Hi Elbert..

Nice blog. I've found many interesting things here. It brings the hope back..:)

Now I'm trying The Witcher demo. It works fine using 3d analyze. But of course on limited fps.

I've read comment from your visitor about mod driver from MAD_BEAST (I did googling, and found your name on the forum about that).

Have you tried that driver? Does it really boost your fps?

Thanks a lot

ElbErtZai said...

With original driver, it's impossible to run Doom3 in high setting, hell, even medium graphic with higher resolution also lag like hell, might be that person have PCI built-in graphic card

I never had MAD_BEAST mod working successfully..
Not everyone can mod their driver so i'll be sticking to the original driver to solve and fix problem
I havent try witcher though, couldnt try all game cuz insufficient resources x_x
But looking forward Red Alert 3 for now xD

bestial_dreamer said...

Doom 3 indeed runs on 945, however the FPS is pretty low. From my experience, it's perfectly playable on low settings, medium lags a bit in bigger battles.
Maxing it out is probably just wishful thinking, though.

ankit said...

hey guys,

found a way to run DMC 3 on 945GM
using 3d analyzer
Use skip pixel shaders options, force 100 Hz, check performance mode, force SwTnL

i tried it on version 1.0 of the game and it worked fine

And thanks for your tip on half life 2.

Bestial_Dreamer said...

DMC3 seems to be individual. I basically spent a restless night trying to get it to work and tried pretty much every combination of sensible 3DAnalyze options, the game didn't even run. Then again, I've got Vista; that might be messing things up.

Anyway, here's a few (mostly older) games that I got to run (945/32bit Vista):

Age of Mythology/Titans expansion
Black&White
C&C: Renegade
Clive Barker's Undying
Dungeon Keeper 2 (set on software rendering mode)
Elder Scrolls: Morrowind (has some graphics issues, but nothing major)
Fable: The Lost Chapters
Gothic 1 & 2
Grim Fandango
Homeworld: Cataclysm
Magic: The Gathering: Battlegrounds (graphics issues, but perfectly playable)
No One Lives Forever 1 and 2 (crashes occassionaly, but not too often)
Planescape: Torment (actually, all Infinity Engine RPGs work, but this deserves mentioning with being the best game ever and stuff)
Silent Storm
Space Rangers 2
Quake 3: Arena (so essentially all games running on its engine should work)
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell
UFO: Aftermath

...I'm not saying all of these will necessarily work (individual system settings can make quite a mess), but it's definitely in the 945's power to run them and lists of working games for this card are few and far between, so it might help someone.

Guldan said...

Hi Elbert,

I've never been able to run some of your mentioned games if using 'Force SW TnL' in 3d Analyze. I'd prefer use 'Emulate HW Tnl caps', and it always works exactly.

So what the differences of those two options?

I've just tried Jade Empire Special Edition using 3d Analyze 'Emulate HW Tnl caps' and it runs great on all max setting!

Dennis said...

hi, Elbert,

Did you try Medieval II Total War? It is playable, but very slow. I use 3D analyze to tweak, but seems the performance is still low.

Bestial_Dreamer said...

In case someone didn't read the other page, Red Alert 3 works.

sam29 said...

I was able to run nfs carbon in windows vista wit playable frame rates............
also nfs pro street was also able to start and show the menu but then it crashed...

ElbErtZai said...

I found out that using Dual Channel Ram(2 ram with same speed and size) can boost gaming performance since intel chipset has DVMT

To confirm this, I am going to buy another same 1GB ram with same speed as my existing ram so would be upgrade to dual channel 2GB ram

trigger said...

I have just contacted "can you run it?!" the game system spec analysing team about changing intel 945g specs so that we will have hw lighting in the analysing so the results will not be incorrect :D

indigochild said...

hail to 945gm warrior...:D
doom 3 playable on my lappy...with fps about 20-55,sometimes 60..with medium settings,640x480,and all effect on..but shadows off..i got something interesting on experimenting the setting.i try the latest driver for intel 945gm..and its very laggy when outside and when a lot of particles(smoke,fireball..etc).then i try to install old driver version 6.14.10.4421.and..KAZAMM!!doom 3 playable with a minor lag and increasing FPS!thats weird..old driver defeat the latest driver??i will test stalker clear sky with the old driver..i can run stalker clear sky on intel 945gm..but laggy,maybe some tweaking resulting a MAGIC..

ElbErtZai said...

Trigger, So meaning to say 945gm got hw lightning?

Indigochild, That's one unique finding you have =O
mind telling me what spec u have and what OS ur using?

trigger said...

well yea intel 945G has hw lighting! why do you think it can play rainbow six:raven shield in full graphic setting?

ElbErtZai said...

To anyone using Vista, make sure you Disable Desktop Composition in the Compatibility tab in Properties to your games

This can improve gaming performance alot with increase FPS

indigochild said...

my lappy specs not so powerful..but thank god playable on gaming(but not high specs games..hehehe)..phew!!
1,6 Ghz Celeron
intel gma 950 128 mb
1,5 gb RAM
Windows Xp OS
i make a graphic quality comparison between doom 3 screenshot with old driver and the latest driver and i cant find any difference with both driver!no difference at all.the only difference is the old driver make the game faster.weird...

indigochild said...

sorry..there is a mistake..the processor is 1,73 ghz not 1,6 ghz..:D

trigger said...

umm how can i disable desktop composition in steam games? also why don't you try halo 2 with this setting?

ElbErtZai said...

indigo, a slight higher processor speed can have better performance in games, mine is only 1.6 >_<

trigger, create a shortcut for ur selected steam game, then right click the shortcut, go to compatibility tab, then tick the "disable desktop composition"

I remember trying out Halo 2(except with this feature disable"
. I was able to start a new game but the FPS is like 1~3 only, it runs like a slideshow so consider unplayable

trigger said...

I am now using a intel quad extream processor :D it's bad ass! i can see the improvement in my computer like hell!

Anonymous said...

how did you get halo 2 running? i get an error message saying failed to initialize... do you run it in 3d analyzer? if so what settings did you use.

trigger said...

the post above was me.

ElbErtZai said...

no, i use Swiftshader 2.0
to my surprise that time, i was able to run Halo 2 but it really lag hellishly..its unplayable

Im using Vista 945gm latest driver since it has SDK or watsoever which extend 945gm graphic capability

trigger said...

sdk? show me this and where i can download this holy sdk?

ElbErtZai said...

It's only available to Vista 945gm driver only
It update my base score from 2.5 to 2.7
But im not sure what it will affect though

trigger said...

fallout 3 is unplayable, I only got it to the main menu using swiftshader and 3d analyzer.

ElbErtZai said...

aiks, i heard my friend say its like oblivion graphic except that it's using gun instead of sword.
Im trying Dead Space to see if its playable or not

trigger said...

i shall be leaving you guys now :( i have an nvidia graphics card, its the latest one. sorry guys but i have betrayed you.

ElbErtZai said...

Congratz Trigger =)
it's alrite..dont say betray lah..it's like u graduated xD
happy gaming yea
All the Bez ^^

trigger said...

it did not go as plan as i hoped :( the new motherboard did not boot properly :( i got a PSU and a new graphics card but nothing happened, i built my pc everything was done correctly but i still keep on getting a black screen, none of the human interface devices worked, monitor did not work, but the graphics card was on, i saw the fan spinning. Any ideas?

ElbErtZai said...

Did u plug the blue cable(monitor cable) to the graphic card instead of plugging it in default slot of the CPU?
Back in the days when i bought a graphic card for my desktop, i plug wrongly to the default slot so there's nothing shown on the screen.. need to plug to the new graphic device

trigger said...

yea man i did everything, i think its the power because sometimes the graphic card and the motherboard does not turn on, i have a 560W PSU. Nvidia says that the graphic card works best at 500w to 800W. well i might call a technician to come over, in the meantime i am stuck with the 945G. Oh well i am just going to cry in the corner like a little girl :(

trigger said...

hopefully i shall get a new cpu cooler, it good for its value, http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-017-AR&tool=3

Hunter said...

Hi guys!
ElbErtZai, you wrote an article about Prince of Persia in your blog. You think it will work on a Intel GMA 945? I hope cause Im really looking forewart to it. I have another question, too. I have Windows XP and CSS run perfectly under Visto, now with XP i get only 8-10 fps :( What Im doing wrong. Portal crashes every 2 minutes ingame. Any ideas? Thanks for your blog! Keep the good work up! Greetings

ElbErtZai said...

I have high hope in the latest Prince of Persia and i will definitely try it out and give updates about it when it release

Source game runs better in Vista becuz of the extended graphic driver for 945GM
but i havent try Portal yet so i cant help u in that one

CyberNetizen said...

Hi. I found your site interesting and very helpful to countless others.

I, too, have been reading countless posts of whether such game will run on the Intel X3100 graphics solution, which is why I got inspiration from your site and created a blog for it.

http://x3100gaming.blogspot.com

For now it only has a couple of posts, but your list is there, albeit modified to add some games we tested to run.

I linked to this blog of yours in order to point GMA950 users in the right direction if they happen to stumble upon my blog.

So many so-called 'techies' have dismissed the notion of playing games with integrated solutions and have gone so far as to comment that you don't have a chance of playing good games because of the lack of a 'decent' card. Narrow-minded thinking like this has made me decide it would be best to get the word out there: YES you can play using integrated solutions such as the GMA950 and the X3100, and YES, you can enjoy it.

More power!

Hi on your compatible list you have listed dawn of war, install the game but had an error saying shader :(

d6i6a6b6l6o said...

Dawn of War and all its expansions (Winter Assault, Dark Crusade, Soulstorm) works on 945 but
Warhammer: Mark of Chaos don't start, you get an error.

ElbErtZai said...

CyberNetizen, Im grateful for someone that can help the intel chipset series community =D
it seems that ur blog is mainly to help ppl with X3100 chipset =)
Ishoni Gambahteh xD (Let us do our best!)

Anonymous, that error saying shader error is nothing, i remember clicking any given option will start the game by-passing that error message

d6i6, havent try warhammer:mark of chaos so dont really know about it

Satya said...

hey.. ur site for really helped me play HL2 EP2 on my laptop with swiftshader enabled. Can u try ur bit with Tombraider Underworld and let us know if it can be run on our Intel Chipsets. Thanks a ton. Satya from INdia

Bestial_Dreamer said...

Not sure about Underworld, but Legend didn't run for me (1,8 dual, Vista, 1gb ram).
I'm also rather skeptical about Prince of Persia. My comp can't run freakin' Sands of Time without lagging heavily; I doubt the new one will work better.

Anonymous said...

Is Rappelz still playable on this kind of setup?! I have a problem with Sframe.exe even though i have a very similar setup! :S

ElbErtZai said...

Satya, I already tried Tomb Raider Underworld Demo but was not able to start up the game, guess our 945gm has its limit here

Bestial, that's weird, I was able to run Legend in window XP though, Prince of Persia Warrior Witin and Two Thrones runs perfectly last time when i was using XP

Anonymous, next time at least have a name, I'm playing Rappelz from Asiasoft company not Gpotato

Thanks for the reponse.
Rappelz Asiasoft doesn't seem to have diferent requirements from that of Gpotato so i'll just have to bug them :)

Bestial_Dreamer said...

Well, my laptop is real thrash; having 1 GB of RAM and Vista is a pretty stupid combination. It's at least good to see that this lag isn't apparently caused by the graphics card.

Oh, and just for general information - tried a few more games, with results like this:

American McGee's Alice - works.
Beyond Good & Evil - works.
Civilization 4 - runs, tutorial works, but gets stuck when loading a new game. This doesn't seem to be a graphics issue, though.
Divine Divinity - works.
Painkiller - can be run with 3dAnalyze, but suffers heavy slowdowns at times.
Sacred - works, occassionally slows down.
Thief: Deadly Shadows - works.

ElbErtZai said...

I wasn't able to run Civilization 4 in XP though
Due to my DVD-Drvie sometime malfunctioning, I can't install higher GB requirement games from DVD, it's torturing <_<
That's why i had to skip testing Dead Space and Assassin Creed

trigger said...

Assassin Creed worked for me but it only went to the start menu and then it crashed, i was using 3d analyzer and swiftshader.

ElbErtZai said...

So it's consider as unplayable then =/
Some ppl say that Prince of Persia 2008 was unable to play too =/
Im kinda worry abt that @_@

Aequus.Mihi said...

I saw a mistake in your unplayable games list. I can play and enjoy Devil May Cry 4. If you want I will post a video of gameplay! My laptop specs are :

Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 2735
Processor : Intel Core2Duo T5450 | 1.66GHz | 1.67GHz |

Robby said...

Hi what a nice blog you have here...... I just want to ask you have you check that portal is playable or not?????????? Portal is a very interesting yet educating game, it;s a shame if it's can not be played using Intel Chipset............ If you have check it, is it playable or not????????? Do we have to do the same thing that we need when we play Half Life 2: Episode 2???????????????

Mr. Dorit said...

Robby. I can tell you that Portal run with the 945 intel chipset. And it actually runs quite good. You just have to mod your drivers, and it will work like a charm; i'm talking 30 - 40 FPS...
I've made a video of me playing Portal using the integrated graphics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHbKkZRKYCU

And if you want to know how to mod your drivers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N2aAgFMKAf4

trigger said...

yo Robby you can enter commands in the console or you can use the steam launch options. go to the steam launch options of the game you want to choose. If it is portal you may want to use these commands:
"+mat_bumpmap 0 +mat_picmip 2 +mat_specular 0 +mat_max_worldmesh_vertices 1024"

(without quotes.)

The "+mat_max_worldmesh_vertices 1024" command can only be used with new source engine games, such as teamfortress 2, Portal, half-life 2 ep1 and 2 and also day of defeat source. The other commands can be used in older version of the source games such has half-life 2 and counter-strike source. Please check that some mods out their have the latest source engine games.

Another good trick to rise you FPS you can change the game into directx 8 mode you can do this by entering the command:
"mat_dxlevel 80"

you can visit this steam support link below for more information:

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6956-UGCB-7160

good luck getting good FPS.

yo Mr. Dorit your video about modifying the intel 945G chipest family was epic man! keep up the good work, we need a bigger community so that we can play more games!

trigger said...

and also guys have made a tutorial so that you can get the nvidia and ati promotional offer from steam.

http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=a214y8IMzvo&feature=channel_page

enjoy :)

Robby said...

Thanks for the help guys, now I can play Portal on my laptop............. I just want to ask trigger, the steam website said that I have to copy the +mat_max_worldmesh_vertices 1024 command to config.cfg, do I have to copy the mat_dxlevel 80 command to the config.cfg also??????????????????

trigger said...

robby it don't really matter you can change the direct x level in the game launch options or you can just put it in the config.cfg it will both be executed on game start-up.

Ezekiel said...

Hi,
I just wanted to know, how to make Counter-strike source work on my lappy xD (Obviously the steam version)

Specifications:

Windows XP SP2
Intel Mobile Express Family Chipset 945GM(950GMA)
Intel Celeron M 520 (1.60ghz)
760MB Ram (Had 1012, but gave some to my friend, to help him out)
Got dx10(XP version)

Thanks, as cs 1.6 doesnt seem to work properly, strange....and i rly want to play source.

Ezekiel

trigger said...

type this into your steam game launch menu for counter-strike source: "+mat_bumpmap 0 +mat_picmip 2 +mat_dxlevel 70 +mat_specular 0" (without quotes) press ok and run the game and you should get more fps.

trigger said...

oh for cs 1.6 change the game settings to software mode and it should work fine!

Ezekiel said...

Hi, i have another prob. To get into steam on my lappy, it takes forever! (like 15 minutes)
Where-as on my comp,(200mb ram athlon preccesor i think 16000+)
it loads it in 2 mins, since it takes so long to load, i cant set the launch options 4 source. Darnit
Someone plz help

ElbErtZai said...

Ezekiel, processor plays an important part too for us chipset user..urs is celeron M which has only 1 core processor, I play CS Source without any tweak 2 years ago with only 512mb ram in window XP..
btw, try upgrading ur XP service pack to 3

trigger said...

hey guys!

I found out something cool that we can use. If you have a game that runs on the valve source engine read below!

open the folder containing cfg in Notepad,

for example:

\half-life 2\hl2\cfg

find following lines:

sv_forcepreload "0"
cl_forcepreload "0"

change setting to "1". So the game is forced to load all textures before the scene starts.

trigger said...

I have a problem updating my graphics driver, every time I start the set-up I always get some sort of message like: "Your computer does not meet the requirements" and I have downloaded the correct driver update, it's really annoying me now, my intel graphics driver is still on v7. I think there must be a manufacturer settings that probably restricts me from updating my computer.

so can anyone help me?

Asynchronous Flip - try "On" to see if it helps

Triple Buffering – try this both on / off (technically “On” might smooth it out but it could create more lag/delay)

Flipping Policy- Flip or Blit (depending on the game try either)

Depth Buffer Bit Depth- Default or 16

Force S3TC Texture Compression- Off (depends on the game)

Force FXT1 Texture Compression- Off (depends on the game)
Hi guys!
I have found something cool, if you have the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Drive then change your settings like below to get best performance in games.

Driver Memory Footprint- Try Normal or High (High will take more ram from the system but might improve performance)

Texture Color Depth- Desktop Color Depth (possibly try lowering your color depth to 16 bit and test the game)

Anisotropic Filtering- Off

Sory guyz, been away for chinese new year for quite some time xP

half life 2??

and with F.E.A.R
.

I can answer some of those. RE4 has no problems with the card per se, but the problem is that it's such a shitty port it's pretty much unplayable without the patches...Which improve graphics, which slows down the performance, and the new graphical effects can't be turned off. If your comp is up to it, sure, RE4 is playable even without 3dAnalyze, but it'll either be pretty slow or suffer from horrendous controls.

F.E.A.R. is another one that should work. Generally, games made on LithTech engine (and its various offsprings) don't require hardware TnL, which is pretty much the main reason why intel 945 sucks. Once again, though, it takes heavy toll on the performance and taxes your CPU and memory considerably - but you shouldn't need 3dAnalyze to play it.

Oh, and a few more (probably obsure here) games I tried in the meantime:

Heroes of Might and Magic V: Tribes Of the East - works. Keep in mind this is the second standalone expansion pack; the original doesn't support our card. This, however, does, and plays quite well, even though there are several minor graphical glitches.

Shadowgrounds (and Shadowgrounds: Survivor): Works when you force HW TnL in 3dAnalyze. Runs pretty smooth too.

Psi-Ops - The Mindgate Conspiracy: Runs.

Deus Ex - Runs. Actually surprising considering how picky that game is about hardware, especially when you take its age into account.

trigger said...

I am guessing right now about the big suprise that elbertzai has. Is it that the ps2 emulator works?

ElbErtZai said...

Thankz a lot Bestial_Dreamer for ur info finding! few days ago i was wondering about "Shadowground" but since your conclusion strike my mind, guess i can go for it peacefully xD

Man, I was glad to find this place, maybe now I can get an answer!

I have an Acer Aspire One, Intel® Atom™ Processor N270, 160GB hard drive, 1GB Ram, Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950 graphics, hooked up to an external dvd/cd rom. I want to run my Oblivion/Elder Scrolls on it, but it keeps crashing on start up. Is there ANY work arounds for this game? I see it's in the playable list, but I don't know what WI means, or how to do it.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!! Thanks for the great blog!!!!

Bestial_Dreamer said...

Well, there's a few options.
1)Realize Oblivion is a shitty FPS and get Morrowind instead.
2)If you still insist, there's basically two things you can do:
2a)Use 3dAnalyze to emulate HW TnL caps; this should work around the initial crash, but you'll suffer from a poor performance.
2b)(recommended) Google up a mod called Oldblivion. Works like a charm.

Bestial_Dreamer said...

Also, Crysis? I freakin' hope that was a joke.

ElbErtZai said...

Weird..thought i post a comment oledi O.o

anyway, thankz Bestial =)

The Witcher Enhance Edition was playable but you'll need to download english language pack and the latest patch

Aequus.Mihi said...

Hey, ElbErtZai.
I wanna ask your permission on posting yours PCSX2 configuration on my blogspot. Of course I will credit you in big red letters. :)

And how come The Witcher Enhanced Edition was playable on Intel 945GM?
Did you try The Witcher? Not Enhanced. Because the Enhanced edition I haven't tried but the normal edition is a lag whore.

I'll test the Enhanced edition probably tomorrow.

Dawn of War 2 anybody? I was just wondering if it works or not with this media card

trigger said...

Left 4 dead should run fine with these launch options in steam: "+mat_forcehardwaresync 0 +mat_bumpmap 0 +mat_picmip 2 +mat_specular 0 +mat_max_worldmesh_vertices 1024"
(without quotes)

you should get a good fps.

ElbErtZai said...

Aequus.Mihi, Sure you can post it in ur blog but would u mind share ur blog?
I did say it's playable but i didnt say it wont lag though xP

Anonymous, i never went to try games that need 3.0 pixel shader

Trigger, THankz for the Tips! i will go try it out agian =D

Hi ElbErtZai,

First let me say that this is a great blog, helping where no one else can!

But I would like your expert help. I am trying to play PoP - The 2 Thrones on my Laptop: Intel Core 2 Duo T5600 1.83Ghz, 1 GB Ram, XP SVP3, 945gm. Which I have noticed you posted that it works, and I can't seem to play the game, any pointers?

Thanks a lot!

ElbErtZai said...

Describe your problem in detail, i see what i can help

csll29 said...

Hi can day of defeat source and team fortress 2 work on a intel chipset 945g 1gb ram, dual core, and 1.8ghz

trigger said...

yes it can. you must put these commands in your steam launch options for both games: "+mat_bumpmap 0 +mat_picmip 2 +mat_specular 0 +mat_max_worldmesh_vertices 1024"
(without quotes)

and you should get some smooth game play.

cssl29 said...

Thnx for the reply, but do ihave to use 3d analyser or swiftshader?

cssl29 said...

And another thing trigger, i am a noob at this things so dont get mad at me =p

Do i put the commands above u gave me into the launch option?

Do i put the exact line into the launch option?

Aequus.Mihi said...

Elbertzai.
In one post you wrote The Witcher Enhanced Edition was playable.
I dunno about you but for me lag hell. Unless I look at the ground all of the time. Well in some interiors it didn't lag much. But Kaer Morhen Exterior = Lag Fest!

trigger said...

yes just copy and paste it into the tf2 and dod:s launch options in steam. No you do not have to use any other programs like swiftshader and 3d analyzer.

cssl29 said...

Hey guys, after copy and pasting the command into the launch options and lowering the resolution its great for dod:s but i still experiencing a bit of lag ( abit i mean i cant really aim well and it always lags in a critical time) so how can i fix it?

HIMI said...

hey all, this is proably the wrong place to place this thread but since u guys are all so smart, i want to ask u a question.

when i play dod:s, i find a server then went into it and a few seconds later it lagged abit then crashes saying, "hl.exe has stopped working" how do u fix this?

trigger said...

lol i had the same problem, i'm not sure how i fixed it but try re-downloading it through steam

ElbErtZai said...

I dont actually know Steam games problem since i dont play much of them so i cant give any solution to those problems.

trigger said...

I just remember did u set the direct x level below 9?? if you did then thats why it crashes, set it to direct x 9 or 10, direct x 10 gives me more fps than direct x 9.

cssl29 said...

oh man thnx, i will try. if it works man, i will thank u so much man.

HIMI said...

so if i want it to set it above direct x9 what should i put in the launch option?

mat_dxlevel 10? and dx_level 10 ?

how plz help

HIMI said...

NICE, IT WORKED THANX BUT!!!!! IT LAGG MORE OFTEN AND IT HAS A DELAY TRIGGER!!!! HOW TO FIX. I TRIED DXLEVEL 90, IT LAGGED AND DELAYED AND I HAVENT USE DX 10 YET CAUSE I DONU HOW TO SET=P PLZ HELP

HIMI said...

any another thing trigger, does intel 945gm video card include directx 10 or do i have to donwload it because when i put in -dxlevel 10, and load dod:s all the words and ingame features all have lines. The sniper scope dont have lines either and eerything is ewird.

trigger said...

ok ok guys listen up, download the latest directx from the Microsoft website: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3

now to set up directx in all the new source engine games (except l4d), you must add this command to the game console: "mat_dxlevel 100" (without quotes, directx 10 - works more better for me)

also did you add these commands to the launch option? "+mat_bumpmap 0 +mat_picmip 2 +mat_specular 0 +mat_max_worldmesh_vertices 1024" (without quotes) hopefully you should get betrer fps.

look here for help and info: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=623213

and also

https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=6956-UGCB-7160

A reminder that you must have a minimum: 1.7 GHz processor, 512MB RAM i hope you pass that or you need to upgrade.

HIMI said...

thnx alot trigger ur a great man. last question....how do u check your fps? i forgot how to do it. is it show_fps or somethin?

Aequus.Mihi said...

Um. To use Dx 10. You should add -dxlevel 100 or mat_dxlevel 100.
Because Dx9 is -dxlevel 90.

trigger said...

ok to check fps rate you must type in the console "net_graph 1" (without quotes) and "net_graph 2" gives a more detailed fps reading showing you graphs and other statistics.

Alvin said...

I found out Tom Clancy's HAWX pc demo is playable with resonable fps on lowest setting.

tick "emulate HW TnL caps" in 3Danalyze236 before starting the game, otherwise it won't run.

My laptop has a T2300 cpu and 2GB ram.

ElbErtZai said...

wow, great help guyz ^^b
hmm..i wonder Left 4 Dead has any tweak for performance boost, i have tried what i can but still it run pretty slow in most occasion <_<

Alvin, Tom Clancy's HAWX playable?
wow, that's unexpected judging by the graphics i saw earlier xD
Thankz for the info =)

trigger said...

meh, i get some good fps in left 4 dead when i unblock my firewall to use Garena. There is one way to get better fps is to set the game on low settings, small resolution, windowed mode and disable desktop composition, you should get a boost in fps.

On another subject you guys should use Garena it's good if you can't play online *cough* pirated games *cough* you just see some servers in the lan section in your games and your able to join them, its more like hamachi but without the fuss of people being online unlike Garena there are thousands of people online.

Alvin said...

ElbErtZai, I didn't expect HAWX playable too. I heard it from a chinese forum 2 days ago. I got the demo from my fiend and gave it a try and I was amazed. I guess not many people know as it is really unexpected. I hope the retail version is as good as the demo. It is coming out soon.

cssl29 said...

+mat_specular 0 +mat_max_worldmesh_vertices 1024

can i put all this and more into the autoexec.cfg? or config.cfg

if yes, do i just copy and paset into it?

trigger said...

yes you can add the commands to autoexec.cfg

cssl29 said...

hey, my friend recently bought a real copy of tf2. And he is wondering if he could play garena servers as well?

trigger said...

there is no need for someone who has a legit version of tf2 to play Garena, Mainly people use Garena because it uses a lan emulator or some sort and people can play pirated games online.

trigger said...

and also i'm thinking to make a blog for intel 945G gamers who play any valve game like counter-strike source.

ElbErtZai said...

Trigger, I support your idea of making one special blog for helping 945gm user on Valve games! =D
Partner Link k? ^^b

Alvin, I have tried the Tom Clancy's Hawx and it's awesome xD
Thankz for your info =)
Im going to get the full version and try it out!

meh ok i will partner the link but i need to plan it out, It might be an actual website instead of a blog.

Thankz for the info on FIFA09, come to think of it, i dont think football games require high graphic card..wonder which one is better, FIFA09 or PES 2009 =/

Inform about your computer spec when u ask technical question,
SSE3 = for AMD processor

ummm, i just wondering if 3danalyze have " Emulate HW TnL caps ", why this software add " Force SW TnL " too? what matter?

I confused *-*

Aspire said...

Well you see, 3DAnalyze's Force SW TnL and Emulate HW TnL, IMO, is different. Force SW TnL means to force gma950 into software rendering mode. While, the 3DAnalyze 'Emulate HW TnL' means to emulate those TnL by 3DAnalyze and not gma950 itself.

ElbErtZai said...

Correct Aspire! xD

adriat1k! get your computer checked out by a technician and also get a new hard drive or cd drive, it seems to me that you have a very old hard drive or cd drive

Yangy Doodle said...

adriat1k:
That happened to me once. I left it on for the night, woke up the next morning with a BSoD. I paid no real attention to it and restarted the computer. That error came up. Turns out my entire hard drive failed. I still don't know why, because nothing I did could even get the computer to recognize it as a hard drive anymore. Luckily I had a portable 2.5" hard drive, which I took out of its casing and into my laptop. That worked for me. Unfortunately I was unable to recover any of the data from the failed hard drive. This is why you should always back things up, so luckily for me all I lost was a couple of programs. I think you should get a replacement hard drive and an external for backup purposes.

adriat1k said...

in this site http://www.windowsbbs.com/windows-xp/54968-computer-will-not-boot-no-hard-drive-detected.html says that this program Drive Fitness Test utility can solve that problem ? and i must recover some files because they are my fathers and my father work as a POLICE INSPECTOR and that files are really importent for my father ? :(:(

Yangy Doodle said...

Does anyone know if MLB 2K9 will work with 945GM with playable frame rates? TIA.

Bestial_Dreamer said...

^I've dug around the 'net a bit (honestly having no idea what that game even was at the beginning) and found that:
a)the PC port is generally considered unplayable due to bad controls, and

b)the supposed minimum requirements include some pretty heavy stuff (2.8GHz dual at minimum, 2 GB RAM, yadda yadda yadda, you get the picture) and a graphics card that supports Pixel Shader 3.0, which Intel 945 most definitely isn't.
Now, you *might*, I repeat, *might* be able to get around this with 3dAnalyze by forcing a lower max shader level, but I'd hazard a guess that doing this, combined with the generally high requirements of the game, would tax your computer too much for it to even be playable, even moreso with a decent framerate.

So no, probably not. By general rule of thumb, this-gen console games (that's 360/ps3) are a no-no anyway. There might be some exceptions (games which run on older engines and such), but this probably won't.

cssl29 said...

can i use 3d analyzer to run tf2? cause i am gettin unplyable framerateslike 6-14 in close are maps and 2-4 in outdoor areas. i have tried every bloody commands, tweaks and bla bla bla,, u name it. Tried modded drivers, but says my system does not meet the requirements. turn everytin down, followed every bloody thing trigger gave me, IT STILL NOt PLAYABLE. i even turn the game look like half-life one, it did not help.honestly tell u guys, i tried using 3d analyzer, and it crashes half way through loading. I set to dx-level 81 in crashes, 80 =crashes and i have to set it above dxlevel 90. This gives me unplayable fps. So help guys. How come i cant set to dxlevel 81?

Thankz agian to Trigger for a full load of tips for Team Fortress 2!

The solution to left4dead bright screen is by playing it in Window Vista instead, so far there's no solution to that problem in WIndow XP

P.S. blame Intel for not updating x86 driver for Window XP

did you guys get the new intel update via windows vista ?

Hey, i found the new released game was playable, Dynasty Warriors 6! Fps is playable, 30-40 fps! Please Add this to your playable section.
