D3D10 HW mode Crash
#1
Exclamation 
I decided to try Naruto Ultimate Ninja 3 in Windows 7(Home Premium) on my laptop. The emulator crashes after the intro. The game runs in DX9(Hardware/Software) and DX10(Software) - too slow unfortunately. The video card is Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family. I searched around and found out that DX10 HW mode automatically uses Pixel Shader 4.0(Source). I also found out that my card supports PS 4.0(Source). Then what's the problem? I was really looking forward to trying out Direct3D10. Sad

Laptop specs:
Intel Pentium T4500
Pentium R Dual Core CPU T4500 2.30Ghz
2GB DDR3 Memory
Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family

*And it says I have DirectX 11.

P.S. What is 'Intel GMA 4500MHD'?

Problem is your Intel card, you could try new drivers or downgrading them but if you want DX10 you may want a nvidia/ati card which probably isn't an option for a laptop.

Intel GMA 4500MHD is the graphics card, an integrated graphics solution. GMA stands for Graphics Media Accelerator and MHD... I don't know... Mobile High Definition maybe? Mobile HDMI? Tongue2

Hmm... I could try something with the drivers(hope I don't break something). I just found this thread via google. Guess Intel cards may experience turbulence with PCSX2.
There seem to be External Graphics Accelerators for laptops but they're mainly for multi-monitor use, from what I read. And why isn't an nvidia/ati card an option for a laptop? Because it has integrated hardware and isn't a desktop on which you could easily attach it?
Oh, and how could upgrading/downgrading a graphics card driver help?

Out of curiosity I decided to try a different game(Kim Possible What's the Switch) in DX10 mode. Same thing. Well... I can live with that.
Anyway, thanks for the attention. Happy
