Hello everyone.

I set up this blog since I've come across countless posts from different forums about whether a certain game works on a laptop with an integrated graphics solution such as the Intel X3100.

While this blog will cover the X3100, which I have, you can also find a link to the blog about the GMA950 integrated solution (which is maintained by ElbertZai), and as such will prove that integrated graphics solutions are not to be brushed aside.

Welcome to the unique world of mobile gaming.

I just remembered...

Before you attempt to modify the registry, or any important system file for that matter, please make a full backup first.

You can do this manually by launching the Registry editor and then clicking File on the menu then choosing Export. Once the export dialog is on, choose All from the option then give it a distinct name on the name field -a good one would be something like "pre-tweak 12-12-2008"

If your computer suddenly fails to start the next time, it might be that you changed a critical entry (the probability of this happening is next to nil if you followed the instructions). All you have to do is to start in safe mode, then browse to your backup registry and double click it, clicking on Yes or Ok if a dialog asks.

You can back you registry up too by using system restore to create a restore point. This needs no instructions as you'll get walked through the process. Again, make sure to use a distinct name in order to save yourself from confusion later on.
