Hi, I'm having an issue with games from 2000 era in Windows 10. I have an Intel Atom z3735f processor, I have updated the drivers, tried all the different compatibility options for the games, tried out different options in the intel graphics panel. Hoping someone here can offer me a solution.

Hi, we did not find a solution in the end. I did however find a compromise by setting the game to the exact screen size and then using a program called 'borderless gaming' to hide the title and task bar, this fix depends on the game- you might have to find a way to put it into a custom resolution, if it's a popular game I'm sure you'll be able to find a method for that through Google. ​

Hope this helps

Hello xTopaz,

 

 

I understand the right side of the screen is missing in older games.

 

 

Let me apologize for any inconvenience this issue may be causing to you.

 

 

In order to help you better I would like to gather more information about the configuration you have in the computer. Please attach to this thread the .txt file the Intel® System Support Utility will generate https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25293/Intel-System-Support-Utility

 

 

To attach a file, you must click "Use Advanced Editor" on the upper right hand corner of the response box, then the "attach" option will appear on the bottom right hand corner of the response box.

Hello xTopaz,

 

 

Thanks for the information you sent to me.

 

 

I would like you to try installing different version of the graphics driver. You can download it from this link https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25977/eng/win32_153343.4425.zip https://downloadmirror.intel.com/25977/eng/win32_153343.4425.zip

 

 

As soon as the graphics driver has been downloaded on the keyboard press WinLogo key + r, then type in devmgmt.msc, double click on Display Adapters -> Intel HD Graphics -> Driver tab -> Uninstall -> Select the check box Delete the driver software for this device -> OK, restart the computer, and then reinstall the driver I provided.

Hello xTopaz,

 

 

I am sorry to hear issue persists with the other graphics driver I provided.

 

 

Is there any difference if you use the Tablet in either Portrait or Landscape mode?

 

 

What is the screen resolution you are using in the game? Have you tried changing screen resolution in the game itself?

 

 

Regards,

This is in portrait, much worse lol. The game only runs in 800x600 or 1024x768 I am using the latter.

Hello xTopaz,

 

 

Have you contacted the company that developed the game in order to make sure the game can run on Windows 10*?

 

 

The Sims and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 were released to the market on the year 2000 and 2002 respectively so they might not be able to run properly on newer operating systems.

 

 

At this point what I can recommend is contacting the company that developed the games in order to check it they can run or not in Windows 10*. The game developers should be able to also check compatibility with the graphics controller.

 

 

Regards,

I have not and I doubt I'd get much help from EA as it's not a recent game but I know that The Sims runs perfectly for others using Win10 as I asked for help on a Sims forum before coming here- I have also in the past run the game with no issues using Intel HD Graphics on a different computer (Core 2 Duo E6600) on Windows 7 so I wrongly made the presumption that this new PC being Intel HD Graphics it would work.

Hello xTopaz,

 

 

Thanks for the additional information you sent to me.

 

 

Is there any change on the screen if you press Alt+Enter while in-game?

 

 

Do the game settings allow you to match the screen resolution of the tablet? Have you tried using different screen resolution in-game?

 

 

I would like you to try also adjusting Scaling options on the Intel® Graphics Control Panel. Please right click on the Desktop, go to Graphics Settings, click on Display, and try all of the Scaling options you have available.

 

 

Regards,

I have tried the different scaling options and they have no effect, I have also set the tablet resolution to 1024x768 so it would match the game (as that is the highest the game will allow) and it didn't help either. Alt + enter also has no effect.

Thanks

Hello xTopaz,

 

 

We will attempt to replicate the issue in our lab in order to try to find a workaround for it. Due to this is an old game there is a chance we may not be able to develop a fix for it.

 

 

I will let you know if we can replicate this issue in our lab.
