Hello. My laptop has 2 cards and 8GB RAM. I play most of games at high settings with Nvidia Card and never had problem. But this game always uses the primary card and i tried ever single way to change it but nope...

~My cards
-Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 112 MB (primary)
-NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M GDDR5 4096 MB (secondary)


Ways i tried to solve this problem, but never worked.
-Disabling primary card. (Then game tried to use Microsoft Basic Display Driver...gosh)
-Forcing every program to use secondary card. (Nope it will stick to use Intel.)
-Forcing pem.exe to use secondary card from Nvidia Control Panel. (Nope game still on Intel.)
-Unstalling and re-installing whole game/drivers/Windows OS...

Nothing works and im tired of crashes, low settings and lag spikes... PLS HELP! :neutral:

Has stopped playing as of summer 2019. Since there are not many good people left (only douchy groups mostly, no offence!) and game is itself grindy more than ever. There is nothing left for a soloer. Good luck to the rest of survivors!

    Nevermind. Been 3+ years since im trying to solve this and nothing changed about the problem. Sent ticket and support members really tried to help me but nothing worked so this thread can be closed as my problem is unsolvable for now. Thank you... T.T

    Maybe ....

    Take a look in installation folder of FW. There in should be a folder called "RoleSettings".
    In this folder you should find two (2) files called sugestetsettings.ini and SystemSettings.ini.

    This two files are normal text files. They can be edited with the standard Editor from Windows.

    Now lets try some tricks :)

    SAVE both files BEFORE editing them !!

    Both files contain lines like the one in mine:

    __________________________________________

    [Info]
    card = AMD Radeon (TM) R9 380 Series
    driver = aticfx32.dll
    version = 25.20.15025.1002
    vendor = 00001002
    deviceid = 00006939
    subsysid = 04e31043
    guid = {D7B71EE2-2A79-11CF-1970-521E4AC2D435}

    _________________________________________________________

    Now we need to get exactly this information from a user with SAME graphic card like you can use instead of the Intel one.

    Replace that information first in SystemSettings.ini . START FW, PRESS THUMBS ;)
    If it work.... BINGO.
    If not = copy over the "saved" file to get back to where we started from.

    Everyone who can provide information about the needed lines for this graphic card should post it ..PLS :)

    @ichdumm

    Well i think i tried to do it long ago, but wouldn't hurt to try again.

    If anyone have Nvidia 960M graphic cards could you pls upload those files or at least the card info from them pls and ty in advance.

    You are not alone. GTM 540 same problem. GTM 960 same. Now RTX 2060 and same! Game does not recognise NVIDIA card.

    Sorry for the necro. After a lot of test, tweaks and almost corrupting my drivers, i think i found a 2 "solutions" on this problem. It might not work for everyone.

    FW only runs on Display Adapter (Display 1:) which is always the iGPU or intel hd. So the first tweak should be enabling the dedicated graphics as main display adapter in the bios, but not all laptops have that option.


    so the 2nd solution is to connect an external monitor (Display 2:) and using it as the main display adapter via advance display settings. IDK if it works with dual display, since i just tested it on a rush with my buddy's hdmi monitor. Thanks

    Had possibility to get file from a Nvidia based system :)

    Following entry are in:

    [Info]
    card = NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
    driver = nvldumd.dll
    version = 25.21.0014.2531
    vendor = 000010de
    deviceid = 00001b81
    subsysid = 37011458
    guid = {D7B71E3E-58C1-11CF-0B7E-0F171BC2D435}

    The thing is :) GUID seem to be same or different von Card 2 Card and producer. I have a ATI AND NVIDA card and both had same entry.
    I try to find those entries in registry and did NOT find any of them.

    Try it :)
