Does this occur with hardware shaders off? What are accurate Multiplier and Accurate geometry set to?

The same error occurs when all the options you mentioned are set to off.

Your GPU driver is outdated, download and install the latest driver available for your GPU from intel’s website.

I have the latest driver downloaded on my PC, Intel® HD Graphics 5500.

Is this too old? What version does it need to be compatible?


This driver is from 2015, which is very old :stuck_out_tongue:

Since you are on a laptop you will most likely need to download the .zip version then follow this guide to install it: https://www.howtogeek.com/343287/how-to-fix-the-driver-being-installed-is-not-validated-for-this-computer-on-intel-computers/
