Thread: Laptop Video Card Support? | Forums

  1. #1
    Hi, I was wondering if any laptop video cards are supported. I was wondering because my 3.2GHz P4 laptop pretty much can't run this game, even though it has an ATi Mobility Radeon 9000. I bought this game thinking I would be able to play it, because Half Life 2 and Counter Strike both run flawlessly on this machine.

    Yeah, I just found that in tiny print on the back of the game's box. I guess I'll have to start reading into possible compatibility issues before I buy games now. I guess I'll just trade this in for another game or something...

    When they say that laptops may work is that if you can run it then no problems just that if you have a problem with the game u can't get support from ubi.

    On the Australian packaging for this game it doesn't say that laptop cards aren't supported but if it works then it works!
