I have a laptop and i want to play FF11 on it but my video adapter's drivers cant handle it. I have 64 megs of integrated video. Is there anyway at all i can get this game to work...maybe trick the comp into thinking it has a better video adapter?

The one problem with laptops you can't really upgrade them. To change your intergrated cideo you would need a new laptop :tazz: I'm 99.9999999% there is no such thing as a pcima card for video. As for tricking your computer maybe there is a hack for it but if so the game would be very choppy.

I used to play guild wars on it and i play other free mmo's and the video is fine im sure that ff11 will work fine too if it would just try instead of telling me i dont have the right hardware.

yeah, it requires a 32 meg video adapter... the drivers for the intel based video chipset doesnt run the game i just wanna hack it so i can. I know there are some things out there that do this cuz i've done it before but i cant seem to find anything

everything that i'm seeing through my research...claims that your card is not supported..and is not capable of the proper graphics settings...
