    <b>File Name</b>: SwiftShader 2.0 for Intel On-Board Graphics Card Users
    <b>File Submitter</b>: <a href="http://forum.piratesahoy.net//index.php?showuser=5099" target="_blank">Commodore John Paul Jones</a>
    <b>File Submitted</b>: 9 Jun 2009
    <b>File Updated</b>: <i>16 Jun 2009</i>
    <b>File Category</b>: <a href="http://forum.piratesahoy.net//index.php?automodule=downloads&showcat=9" target="_blank">Assorted Files</a>

    This file contains two DLL files that causes PotC to run off the CPU rather than the GPU, therefore enabling Intel On-Board Graphics Card users to play the game without too many problems. These problems stem mostly from integrated Intel graphic cards, so if you meet one or more of the following, give this file a try:
    1. You are using a laptop.
    2. You have an Intel graphics card.

    NOTE: the framerate (frames per second - FPS) is still a bit choppy. Its still better than no game at all, right?

    Instructions:
    1. Download the file.
    2. Unzip the SwiftShader 2.0 folder into a safe location, preferably a "PotC Downloads" folder or the like.
    3. Go into the SwifhShader 2.0 folder and copy both d3d8 and d3d9.
    4. Paste the two files into your main PotC folder.
    5. Enjoy!

    This is the wrong thread to ask for help. You might want to start by actually reading the FAQ, if you continue to have problems, please post in the proper forum!

    Nope. It works fine. And there is a link to the FAQ in Thagarr's post as well as this one.

    It's closed for further replies, yes. If you need to ask specific questions, feel free to start a new thread in the Build Technical forum.

    Lol, that she does. I haven't sailed that ship in ages now.
    Oh well, I have a very nice frigate in the works that I'll be using instead, once she's done... :D

    Well, I upgrade older or less-detailed ones. The frigate 'Rossiya' is just a more thorough upgrade. :wp
    Storm Engine Modelling is the forum to visit. There you can see what I've done, but also the fantastic work of our many other talented modellers.
