XNA Framework: Not Compatible
So I just bought TBP and every time I try to start it up I get a message saying something like my graphics card isn't compatible with XNA Framework HiDef profile. I can see why because I'm using a pretty bad integrated graphics card, but I have never had any problems with any games before.

I assume I would just need to get a new graphics card; but I am playing on a laptop, and I heard those are pretty annoying to change.

Are there any alternatives to getting XNA to work besides a new graphics card?

I'm sorry but for the time being - no, you need a better videocard BUT we will be doing a rewrite to C++/SDL which should, in theory, run on a /*hyperbole-alert*/ 486 :)

Does that mean I will be able to run it on my laptop just fine after that? And if so how soon will the rewrite be done?

Have bumped into the same issue. I thought this game was supposed to be lo-fi! My heart broke a little when the game wouldn't launch.

@SpookyAndrew: What is the estimated timeframe for such a rewrite?

@Mriceguy - will continue working on it as soon as new patch and level is out (next few days?) as for an eta - let's put it this way as soon as I can ...

I wish I had seen this post before I made one of my own. Glad to hear about the patch possibility. I can't wait to play it.

Will this be given to people that already own the game as an update when it's done, or will we need to purchase it again?

Free ... it will probably show up as a 'patch'.

oh, so it's being worked on
that's good
I bought it today, as the collectors edition to get the soundtrack
and I was really bummed about it not working
especially since I ran a check for specs, which said I exceeded the requirements
good to hear its being taken care of

So patch is out.
Mind you, there is nothing that we can do about this error short of a rewrite, which we are doing now - but this is going to take a while.

@Felix McFluffyPaws - did you get the HiDef warning and if so, what are your specs?

So the patch is out? I'm still getting the same issue, I'm reinstalling now to see if that helps at all.

Yeah, I'm still getting the same issue. You rewrote the code right? How is it still incompatible with my integrated card? It's still trying to install xna.

@Caramel - sorry for the misunderstanding. The patch was a quick fix for people who have the non-"HiDef not compatible" problems. The Hidef error requires a rewrite - which is what i'm doing now.

Oh, alright. I got so excited lol, looks like I'll have to wait a little longer then. Good to see you're on the ball though.
