i bought a new laptop the other day and finally got around to installing guild wars onto it but when i'm in game i get a lot of white boxes and weird animations... i have tried installing new drivers but it wont let me install ones that don't come from the hp website. I have also tried installing old graphics drivers too but still no look. The laptop is a HP Envy 13 d012na and the specs are as follows.
HP Envy 13 d012na Windows 10 Intel i3-6100U @2.3GHz 4GB Ram Intel HD Graphics 520 Direct x 12
I have also tried playing guild wars in windows xp mode but still the same problem. I tried installing guild wars again after deleting every file possible but again still no look. Last thing i did was install guild wars 2 to see if that had the same problem but it ran absolutely perfect! im completely out of ideas on what to do... Can anyone on here please help me?
No idea! Could be, I think it might be something to do with Windows 10 but I had it on my old laptop and it ran fine tbh. If anyone has this problem make a shortcut for guild wars and enter -dx8 as follows Guildwars.exe" -dx8
Oh wow, Windows 10! I totally forgot that my son had a problem with it when he first installed it. He has a HP Laptop as well. He had to reinstall windows 10, basically redo the whole freaking thing. He was pissed and it took forever to reinstall everything, but it's up and running fine now. Sorry I didn't think of that sooner, it happened so many months ago I completely forgot until you mentioned it.
Its fine don't worry if i hadn't installed everything i use and put all my files onto here then i would have done that but meh... too much bloody trouble lol. I only play in pre now so running with DX8 is fine thanks for the ideas everyone
I'm going to keep the info you posted about Dx8 for future referrence. All of my family, except my son, is still running on vista which is soon for the graveyard. If we have problems with GW1 when we update that may be the cure. Thank you for that! I myself only use a comp for office and GW1, so I'll happily re-install if need be for Gw1. My family however, hate the whole gotta get it right thing, will probably use your cure. I'm am, to be sure, guilty of ocd.....lmao! Must get those labels facing forward!!!!
just a thought tho, check your F11 options. It may in the longrun save on lag as well. At least that's what the A-Net techies told me when I had problems years ago. 6 months of back and forth diagnosis and that was their cure. Thanks a-Net, I think..... still assessing the lag.....
I'm glad the info might help you in future i get about 60 fps in town and nearly 100 when charr farming so I don't think it's lag. I did go through all the settings and play with it all but nothing other than this has changed anything but atleast I can play now
Looney: Omg! Sweet update "Friends Added a new “Rename” option to the Friends List. You may now set nicknames for friends in your Online, Offline, and Ignored lists."

Looney: Oh and ofc "Added a new startup command, "-prefresetlocal": This command will reset all preferences that are stored locally in the game's .dat file. This command can be utilized to debug issues launching the game." For when it breaks lol
