Maplestory along with Combat Arms are starting to move over to PixelShader. The mech suits in Maplestory were retextured using PixelShader, and ever since that, I haven't been able to see them. Also, In combat arms, whenever I catch on fire, or walk into gas, my screen turns black. I'm using an Intel HD 4000 GPU. According to windows my drivers for that are up to date, but I cannot check through the intel website because my manufacturer made custom changes. Please help, I don't want to replace my GPU!
Intel® HD Graphics 4000 actually supports Shader model 5.0 so it should be able to work fine. Furthermore, Maplestory has been tested and determined to be playable using this video controller over Microsoft* Windows* 7.
