    I recently just downloaded MGSV:TPP, and I was pretty excited to play it. Opened it up, and all I get is this:

    I was pretty confused, so I went ahead and ran dxdiag. Here's what I got:

    As you can see, it clearly says I'm on DirectX 11. I'm not too sure why this is happening. I'm guessing it could be the graphics card itself, but if it supports DX11, it should work.

    All help is appreciated! :wink:

    I'm pretty sure DirectX is not your only obstacle there.

    Any clue with what maybe goin' on? The DX11 error is the only thing that happens when I launch it.

    Dude this is an integrated graphic card... No wonder the game won't run.
    I have the same processor on my laptop, I can play it Hearthstone but nothing more.

    So, I'm guessing I have to upgrade my graphics card? or would there be a workaround.

    Pretty sure you have to upgrade your graphic card (I mean add one) but I'm guessing by your monitor resolution and processor model that you are using a notebook, right?

    unhopefully you're out of luck, see where it says "DDI Version: 10.1" in your screenshot? That means your videocard just supports directx 10.1 and not 11.

    Yup, using an ASUS X44H. Looking to upgrade soon, looks like this thing can't run anything.

    Well, that sucks. Bad luck for me I guess.

    Inside your miiind, and poof.
    Get a graphics card. If you just want to run MGSV and maybe a few other games, a 750 Ti/950 will do if you're on a budget (and also willing to buy a GPU).

    I'm investing to upgrade to a better laptop altogether. I need more storage too, so buying everything this laptop needs would just be a waste of time when I can buy one with all the requirements already.

    You can't put a graphic card in a laptop if it didn't come with one in the first place anyway, so no other way except buying a new laptop.

    Keep in mind that a laptop that can run MGS V decently can cost quite a lot.

    I haven't tried with The Phantom Pain, but Ground Zeroes ran decently on a two-year-old $300 laptop with HD4000 integrated graphics in it. No matter how you optimized it there was some input lag, but the same seems to be true of the 360 version. Last I looked the min and recommended specs were the same for both, but TPP seems like it loads a lot more at once.

    I'd be interested in seeing how well TPP performs on a newer HD5500 ultrabook, but I'm already halfway through the main campaign on the PS3 version, and I don't really have 20-30GB of free space.

    Huh, I guess that's what I get for my fixation of always running everything maxed out.

    Technically he has 4GB of RAM, although it looks like the graphics are authorized to use up to nearly 1.7GB of that.

    I'll readily admit that it worked best with most of the shiny graphics options off and running in a 600p window. Still looked as good as the last-gen version, though.
