The Intel integrated graphics card doesn't support all the features of DirectX 9 so you'll not be able to run the game. The Intel cards are integrated on to the motherboard so it's cheaper to make the computer and for home users and businesses who don't play the latest games the card is acceptable.
so ur saying that there is no way i can play cod2 on the intergrated intel graphics cards... so y do they make them if u cant upgrade them . and do u know anywhere that i can get any drivers for my graphics card
Hello Spiderman2007 and welcome to Geeks to Go!
ok i am having the same problem with the alpha blending thing and i probably have a sucky graphic card and stuff but i have a VIA/S3G UniChrome IGP, anyway to play the game with this graphic card, is it possible? Thanks in advance. This is a new system with AMD sempron processor in it.
Here's the log file:
configure.csv: using CPU configuration 2 GHz 256 MB
configure.csv: using GPU configuration "*"
Measured CPU speed is 2.00 GHz
System memory is 447 MB (capped at 1 GB)
Video card is "VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP"
Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) supported

Getting Direct3D 9 interface...
Pixel shader version is 0.0
Vertex shader version is 0.0
Video card or driver doesn't support alpha blending.
Error during initialization:
Video card or driver doesn't support alpha blending.
Pls let me know what i can do if the video card is not supported. Can i buy a new card, will i able to install it properly on my system? Or is there some website where i can go install the necessary drivers?
I repeat : There are no matter of DirectX 9.0c capability/compatibility of video cards for playing CoD2.
CoD2 works well on GeForce 2 which is only DirectX 7 capable. !!!
To ZEUS_GB: Please, keep that in mind if possible.

You can fix it !? How? Or, you can do it just for yourself...
hey its me again. can you get graphics cards with USB on them if you dont have 1 of those slots because that would be a really good idea if they had those for people with intergrated cards. Also i got the new driver for intel and it says something about a problem with directX9 and i cant fix it.
