    Default GFX problem on M11x

    Hi

    I just bought rift yesterday. I am playing on an Alienware M11xR2. This laptop has 2 video cards. An intel one and a Nvidia one. When I launch the game, even if my Nvidia card is ON, Rift only reconinzes my intel video card. Therefore, some of the graphical options on the video settings are blocked.

    Is there a way to unblock them ?

    I can run most games on High settings so I guess this game should not be more demanding then others...

    Thx!

    I have noticed that the low quality renderer space is checked and I can't uncheck it! Anyone knows how to solve this ?

    I'm not positive this will work, but it might be worth a try. You can edit the Rift.cfg file and look for a line that says "LegacyRenderer = True". Change the "True" to "False" and then save the file and run Rift and see if that helps out.

    You might want to run dxdiag and see what it thinks your computer has for video cards. If DirectX isn't reporting the nVidia card, then Rift won't see it and will prevent you from using anything but the low quality renderer (most likely).

    It worked! I can play on ultra now but, even with all the shadows ON, I can't see them.

    Are the shadows bugged ?
