Hi,
My son is trying to Star Wars Battlefront II but it won't allow him to because he keeps getting the caption no TNL on your display adapter.

What do I need to do to get this to work?

Cheers

TnL means Transform and Lighting


What is the make and model# of his computer?

If it's a no-name or home-built computer, what is the make and model# of the video adapter?

If it doesn't have a video adapter, (know as on-board graphics), what is the make and model# of the motherboard?

Oh, and is this a laptop or desktop? It might also help to know what operating system it's running too.

The G31/G33 is not listed on Intel's "Support for hardware transform and lighting (T&L/TnL)" page:
http://www.intel.com...b/cs-011910.htm

The following Intel® integrated graphics controllers support hardware Transform and Lighting (T&L):

  • The integrated graphics controller of the Intel® G35, G41, G43, G45, G965, GL40, GL960, GM45, GM965, and GS45 Express Chipsets
  • Intel® HD Graphics
All other Intel® graphics products do not have hardware support for T&L.[/list]


You could probably install an el'cheapo PCI Express x16 video card ... like this one:
