READ FIRST! Tropico 5 requires a DirectX 11 graphics card!
PLEASE CHECK IF YOUR SYSTEM MEETS THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS BEFORE PURCHASING THE GAME OR REPORTING ISSUES!

DirectX 11 support is needed at hardware level, which is why the minimum requirements list graphics cards that have specifically been tested and confirmed to run Tropico 5. For some models (Radeon 4000 series), hardware level 10.1 does suffice, for some others, it doesn't. It also heavily depends on the driver - please make sure you're running the very latest driver available from your graphics card manufacturer if you're experiencing graphical errors and corruption.

If your graphics card does not support the required hardware features, the game may not start at all or display graphical errors.

Having DirectX 11 software installed is no guarantee that your graphics card meets the minimum system requirements. Updated Windows versions which meet the game requirements (Vista SP2 and above) are running DirectX 11 in software.

This is the reason for listing specific graphics card models in the minimum requirements:

- Nvidia GeForce 400 series or higher
- AMD Radeon HD 4000 series or higher
- Intel HD 4000 series or higher

There are no plans to add support for older graphics cards. The game and engine were redesigned from scratch as was requested by many players. The technical modernization calls for new hardware as with many new games. Tropico 5 ist not an exception. The game in its current form would not have been possible on deprecated DirectX 9 hardware and this does not affect visual quality only.

Any chance of Tropico 5 getting support for DX10?

I asked you three times for your graphic card in different threads, all you do is post your specs without the graphic card. We can't help you without it...

As for you, wind your neck in and stop being ungrateful. You've spammed many topics and created your own but when asked for your GPU info you've ignored it and started ranting. Either provide it or shut up.

Depends how much you like gaming on a 360.

It's in the OP for petes sake;

this is not redesigned from scratch lol. it looks just like tropico 4 hell tropico 4 is better than this.
Agnitio Ex Machina May 24, 2014 @ 10:46am 
If I knew if it was created from scratch and would only use DirectX 11, I would have never purchased this.

if im wrong about my graphics card using direct 11 im sorry.
i Hope there will be a directx 10 support because some directx 11 games run perfectly for me.

^ The G 210 is your problem.
It is not a DX 11 card.
I know it says you have DX 11 in your report...but that is software not hardware.
