Game not recognizing my Nvidia GTX 860M

Post by sklr333 » Sat Jun 29, 2019 9:36 am

The game only seems to recognize my integrated graphics on my CPU and refuses to use my GPU, does anybody know how i can fix this issue, and yes I have tried forcing it to through my nvidia settings. Thank you.

Hey there! If you are playing on Windows 10 there's an issue with it not allowing programs using DX8 or lower to be run using the dedicated GPU. Here's a wrapper that'll fix the problem: http://dege.freeweb.hu/dgVoodoo2/dgVoodoo2.html

Copy the DLLs into your Giants folder. It's gonna fix some graphical issues but also comes with a few drawbacks unfortunately. For more support and Giants related content I invite you to join our Discord server: https://discord.gg/Avj4azU! This is the central hub of the community right now so come and play with us!

Ooooooh, what do we have here?

Edit: Well that didn't seem to do much difference...
