This is a joke, for the same reason I was unable to play Sonic Generations (work-arounds do not work). I have a Geforce 555M card, updated to the last drivers, not working. What's funny is how I checked some guide with known problems and glitches. Here's what they say about the problem:
Laptops With Nvidia Optimus Technology
Laptops with Optimus technology have dual graphic cards, an integrated Intel HD as the main GPU, and an Nvidia GPU as the secondary.
When running the Binary Domain on some of these systems we noticed that the technology wouldn't switch over to the Nvidia card like it was supposed to. This caused for some players to experience the following issues:
- Black screens when starting up Binary Domain.
- Intel HD graphics will be set as Primary for the 3D application. (my problem)
- Possible crash of Binary Domain.
Those drivers can be download directly from the Nvidia site.
Here's a link to Nvidia's site for more information on Optimus technology:
Note: Lot of laptop manufacturers will modify drivers to only work on their systems. Installing a non-modified driver could potentially cause some compatibility issues. I recommend that you contact your laptop manufacturer before attempting to update the driver to ensure that this update will not hurt your system in any way.
The vagueness which is probably on purpose, just leaves me perplexed. ''Those drivers can be downloaded...'' what drivers? These links lead you to the driver page for nvidia, but I don't see how this is supposed to do us any good. The latest drivers do not fix the problem, not even the problems of Sonic Generations. So if I read this correctly, they are aware of the problem, but shall not fix it?
Man, this is really annoying.
