Dark Souls 2 Unplayable Texture Glitch
So one of my buddies got Dark Souls 2 Scholar of the First Sin for his PC but when he tried to play it all of the models are all jacked up. For an example his character model's body parts are floating and disconnected and the enemies are super distorted. He has an Intel 4000 HD Graphics and this is apparently a known problem but i has a fix, becaue it worked well with dark souls 2 original. Can anyone help?

Last time I checked 4000gfx does not support dx11 unfortunately. I could be wrong.

The original DkS2 was dx9.

Its an Intel 4000 driver problem, follow these steps.

here's my thread, on it http://steamcommunity.com/app/335300/discussions/0/613956964593710396/

at the bottom, there's three links, one to a forum discussion that you'll need for bypassing the default driver update issue.

here is that link- http://steamcommunity.com/app/233250/discussions/2/558749190911446231/

One link contains a reddit post to a direct link to Intel's driver update list.
Make sure he gets the 64 or 32 bit version (note that on your computer, if it's really old, it's probably 32 bit, but make sure you find a way to check)
Download the latest version, then follow the steam post on installing the .zip version (NOT THE .exe VERSION).


edit- here is the reddit post with the link to Intel's website. Follow the 2nd steam post up above to intstall it, then restart.

oi... long reply... your friend should follow those steps and it should be just fine... yes that toaster for a graphics card can even run this... they optimized dark souls 2 quite well then.

There are still minor glitches that occur, but they are mutch less worse than this. Cause I'm assuming your friends character looks like a "psychotic steampunk" guy...

Welp, have fun! Don't you dare go hollow

yea, it might as well be pinned as a subject. It's a common issue entirely, and is just caused by unuptated drivers.

I have the same graphics as your friend. Oddly, when searching on Intel's website for the "Intel HD Graphics 4000" drivers, no results came up. I got several results when searching for "Intel HD Graphics", however.

After following the link posted by JRubz above at the reddit site, I had a list of Intel drivers that included a driver specific for the 4000 series graphics engine. So if anyone is following - be sure to follow the above link to find the Intel driver, do not simply search on Intel's site for devices.


Great posts - great thread!
