    Kodu Rendering Issue on HD 620 (i5-7200U)




      I have a Lenovo Yoga 710 running Windows 10 which has rendering issues when running Kodu (latest version  This model does not have dedicated graphics from nvidia - it uses the integrated graphics on the CPU.  I have downloaded all of the latest drivers from Lenovo and Microsoft's Windows 10 update but I still have the issue.  The latest Intel graphics drivers from Lenovo is and I have tried Intel's generic graphics drivers 15.4512.4542 and the beta 4552 but this does not resolve the issue.

      I’ve tried changing all the options in the Kodu settings programme (turning off all visual effects and graphics quality) but this doesn’t help.


      I have reported the issue to the Kodu team, but suspecting this is a graphics rendering issue I have reported it here as well.


      Thanks in advance for your help.
