Intel integrated graphics/video and CMBN, CMFI & CMSF

At this point (May 2011) we do NOT recommend trying to run CMBN/CMFI/CMSF with an Intel integrated graphics chip. Some may work, but many Intel integrated video chips will NOT WORK with CMBN/CMFI/CMSF. NON-WORKING Intel integrated graphics are: Intel 810 / 815G Intel 845G Intel 852G / 855GM Intel 865G Intel 910G / 915G (Graphics Media Accelerator 900) Intel 945G (GMA 950) Intel 946GZ / Q963 / Q965 (GMA 3000) Intel G965 (GMA X3000) Intel GL960 / GM965 (GMA X3100) Intel G31 / G33 / Q33 / Q35 (GMA 3100) Intel G35 (GMA X3500) Intel Q43 / Q45 / B43 (GMA 4500) Intel G41 / G43 (GMA X4500) Intel G45 (GMA X4500HD) Intel GL40 / GS40 / GM45 / GS45 (GMA 4500MHD) The following Intel integrated graphics MAY WORK. We don't currently guarantee that the following will work, but with the latest drivers under Windows 7 & 8 ( &, March 2013) some of these have worked. If you cannot use the latest Intel integrated video driver with your computer/laptop (and must rely on the manufacturer's provided drivers only), then you may very likely run into problems running CMBN/CMFI/CMSF at all: Intel HD Graphics Intel HD Graphics 2000 Intel HD Graphics 3000 Intel HD Graphics 4000 We have run into issues even with the latest drivers for the Intel HD series: - Graphical text is corrupted slightly, due to some internal driver routines. - CMBN's 3D screen may not show up initially, requiring you to 'Alt-Tab' out and then re-maximize. - 2D dialog boxes in the 3D screen may not show up at all (such as exiting CMBN, etc.).
