Will my graphics card work?
Intel graphic card version 18.104.22.1682
I get the message minimum system requirements not met. If it's my graphic card which one should I update with at intel? I don't know a lot about graphic cards.
Stinkin' Intel Extreme(ly bad) Graphics. The newest on-CPU Intel graphics are actually enough to run the game, but older models are incompetent.
Before giving up on the Intel GPU, try the "don't force minimum requirements" trick:
Make a shortcut to witcher.exe (which is probably at C:\Program Files (x86)\The Witcher\system\witcher.exe).
Open the shortcut properties (right-click, choose Properties) and add the switch
"-dontForceMinReqs" at the end of the Target text field.
Your Target should now read something like this (note where the double-quote marks are; they are important):
"C:\Program Files (x86)\The Witcher\system\witcher.exe" -dontForceMinReqs
Now say a prayer to Melitele, and launch the game through the shortcut, instead of through the Launcher.
If the game runs, go slice and dice some monsters.
If the game crashes, your GPU can't even fake the features The Witcher needs to run, and you'll need to upgrade.
