Help with graphics card
 
I got a graphics problem running this game. I run it on my laptop, its got the ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics, and I cannot find the update for it. The character in the character creator is all pix-elated and not clear at all, but the description is nice and clear at least...

Would anyone be able to help? Im not sure what to do...

Thanks.

Sure couple things. first check up on http://support.ati.com and look for a driver update for your card. Then try this directx update patch http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

That should help clear up any problems you may have.


also bit of advice a 3200 is a lower end card to try adjusting your graphic settings in game to low or reccommended.

I already have those, and i tried tweaking seetings in game also, but nothing worked :(

Dammit, I might have to drop some money on a new desktop.....

Thanks for your input none the less.

Sure. Glad to help. But the ATI cards are known to have issues right now with the game. So you might want to try to wait for a driver update for your card before going out and putting money in for new computer.

Your CPU is so so (but it should run the game with out problem)

Excellent amount of RAM no problems there

The Radeon 4330 is a lower end graphics card, however, it should run the game (just keep your settings to recommended in game or low)

Hi Baka and all the others,

It seems that you know much about computers and how STO should run on them. I am about to buy a new computer specifically to play STO and this is what the computer store guy offered me:

INTEL 1366 CORE I7-920 2.66
2 x DDR3 DIMM 2GB 1333 CL7 HYPER X
SVGA PCIE 896 MB GF GTX260 GDDR3
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium, 64bit, English
Desktop

Could you please tell me if thatīs really enough to play STO with high or at least reccomended settings? Should I improve something? Or maybe change everything? I accept any constructive suggestions

Thanks in advance.

You say the character is pixellated? Like severely pixellated? Is Half Resolution turned on in the video options?

The GTX260 will let you run the game with recommended settings with no problems. How bit is the monitor you are going to use to play the game?
