    Rage* and Intel Platforms with 2nd Gen Core Processors

    Robert_U

      Rage + Steam Workaround

       

      Rage, the latest game title from Id software, plays well out of the box on recent Intel Platforms with 2nd Gen Core Processors like many other games. However, when the game is used in combination with Steam Overlay – a feature of steam distribution platform from Valve, it may crash.

       

      The following steps allow you to overcome this issue and enjoy the game.

       

      Step 0: Upgrade to the latest Intel graphics driver (64-bit or 32-bit drivers).

       

      Step 1:  Select  Rage from the menu on the left and right clicking and selecting properties

      Step 2:  Disable Steam Community by un-checking In-Game check box

              I can try to replicate this issue and find out what is going on. Can you let me know what your system specs are?  What OS version?  32 or 64 bit?  What driver are you currently using?  That will help me in troubleshooting it.

                hello robert.

                thank you so much for posting this workaround. before i deactivated steam community ingame, my rage would crash right after startup. Now i'm able to play it on my new thinkpad x220 tablet.

                thank you.

                  Rage another game is not supported by Intel HD...

                   

                  Rage only supports: Nvidia or AMD

                   

                  (looks like the game makers think of Intel onboard video as a joke, and those that own Intel HD are screwed)

                    Actually, I read an interview ( <-- that's a link to it) with John Carmack (one of id's lead programmers) in which he said that they were working to optimize RAGE for Intel's latest HD integrated graphics, and that they had it running at the time of interview around 30 frames per second (playable). I think game developers are actually taking Intel graphics seriously now...

                      ooohhh waaaiiit, I remember you. You were trolling on a thread about Intel graphics running Skyrim, too. , troll somewhere else. Seriously.

                        rofl, it took how long for you to come back to post good news about Intel HD, its still a joke... these graphics should have been supported when the game came out not months after... I still don't see Battlefield 3 being supported, so its not taken seriously as a good graphics card.... and no updates on them trying...

                         

                         

                        Bet you work for Intel...

                          Actually, I don't work for Intel, I'm an 18 year old college freshman who had to build a computer on a (relative) budget. I just  hate people who troll for the hell of it (like you).

                          I chose Intel gfx because I wanted a fast CPU (check- screw AMD, their processors are terrible) and gpu performance above a normal (crappy) IGP (check).

                          If you think that in order to be taken seriously, a GPU has to be able to run the latest-and-greatest, biggest GPU-killer on the face of the earth, what about the budget solutions from nVidia and AMD? I don't think that anyone doesn' take nVidia 520 gt seriously, or radeon 5450... both of which are about the sam performance-wise as the intel igp. People on a budget game too, you don't need a $2500 rig that runs everything at max settings 2560x1600 16xAA to enjoy a game.

                          And actually, that interview was given before RAGE's release. So it was supported out of the box. It took me all of 5 minutes to come up with a reply, just because I find a thread a couple months after you were finished trolling for the time being doesn't mean it took me all that time to find a reply. If I spent two months searching for something to validate my point in an argument on an Internet forum, that would make me like you,. Go somewhere where your trolling talents are valued, like politics, and leave us alone.

                            Just here waiting for support, and waiting for new drivers... not seeing either...(the drivers get worse and worse)

                             

                            Sorry if my presents makes you mad but you know what? I personally don't care about you or what you post. Don't like it don't read it...and don't reply to it...

                                THE INTEL HD SERRIES WITH i CORE 2ND GEN PROCESSORS ARE GREAT WITH GAMMING.......THE ONLY GAME THAT I HAD PROBLEM TO PLAY WITHOUT ANY FIX WAS GTA4........REST ALL RUNS DESCENTLY ON IT..........YOU SHOULD NOT EXPECT A NVDIA OR ATI TYPE PERFORMANCE BUT IT RUNS GAMES SATISFACTORILY WITH NOMINAL SETTINGS......AND MY LATEST ADDITION TO MY GAMES LIST IS "RAGE" AND IT RUNS QUIET GOOD WITH LOW AND MEDIUM SETTINGS.....

                                IF RAGE IS NOT RUNNING THEN JUST DOWNLOAD LATEST GRAPHIC DRIVERS FOR INTEL HD......MY LAPTOP'S CONFIG IS:

                                4GB RAM

                                INTEL i5 SECOND GEN 2430M

                                500gb hdd

                                intel hd3000................:-)

                                DONT GET DISHEARTENED IF U HAVE AN INTEL HD GRAPHIC....IT IS FAR BETTER THAN PREVIOUS ONES OF INTEL......U CAN PLAY GAMES WELL ON IT......INTEL HD ROCKS
