PostSubject: Graphics Card   Sun Jun 03, 2012 9:16 pm

Hey Futurecraft fans! I wanna play Shores of Hazeron (Hazeron.com) but I'm on a Mac. I have VMware Fusion and Windows 8, but my graphics card will not work with the game. I need to change the card, but my Mum doesn't want me digging holes in the computer. Is there anyway to change the card without cutting it up?

No, you can't. GPUs on Macs, to my knowledge, can't be changed anyhow. In any case there's no way to magically teleport the graphics chipset out and then telekinetically put in another one. Sorry.

Useless? I told you the truth. You can't.

Here's my proof. There's absolutely no way to replace or upgrade a graphics card without getting your hands dirty. Even if your mom wasn't paranoid you'd still be voiding whatever warranty you have on it with Apple.

Also worth noting is that you have to purchase a Mac specific card for twice its PC's counterpart's MSRP, and there's still no guarantee it'd work with Shores of Hazeron.

I have a valuable quote for you about cutting up your computer to fix the graphics card...

Honestly, I wouldn't even go through the hassle. I tried the game and the planetside part of it looked so bad that it was nearly unplayable...It looked like an early nineties try at a 3D game, not good.

Not sure how telekinetically implanting the new chipset in this case would be different from surgically inserting it with a hammer.

Too bad, I've seen the game in action and it looks epic. Don't say that unless you've finished the game (AKA get into space and are able to blow people back into the stone age)

With macs it isn't so much the specs as it is the model number. Do you have that on hand?

There should be some screws at the bottom of your laptop, unscrew it and you can probably mess around with the graphics card.

I hope you're joshing around blockman.

Even on Windows based laptops it's risky, if not impossible, to swap out the gpu. What with Apple's seeming obsession to have the end user be as uninformed as possible I doubt it'd be as easy as you make it out to be, no offense.

Khmac, your graphics card is soldered to the motherboard. I apologize for my misleading advice. There's no way you can upgrade/replace it. Sorry.

This is why I prefer Linux-Based operating systems and desktops.

Ya, the graphics card is probably not replacable. Sorry.

Obviously the way to go with linux is tiny core. Who needs all the bells and whistles really...
