Workaround for Intel UHD 630 not working with FE (1-2 FPS)

Recommended Posts

If you experience 1-2 FPS  when you launch the game on a new iGPU such as Intel UHD 630, then the workaround fix is as follows:

- Install VMWare player (free)  and setup a Windows Virtual Machine. You need ISO, so can use Windows Media Creation tool for simplicity.

- After Windows install power off the Virtual Machine, enable 3D Acceleration for that machine, power it on and install VMWare Tools

- You can get Direct X from Windows Download Center

- Install and play the game on Virtual Machine. With low settings should be 60+ FPS.

If you did everything alright, than Graphics Card on your virtual machine should show VmWare SVGA 3D

If you game doesn't patch and load, but internet connection presents on your Virtual Machine, then add Firewall Exclusion Rules for FE updater and FE client.


Game was tested to run on legacy Intel HD 4000, so it should run better on new iGPU, just problems with drivers+game interaction: it won't use iGPU for render, which is clearly seen on GPU performance graphs.

Hyper-V will most likely not work (GPU partition method should be slow for that card, and pass-thru is disabled i new versions, unless you hack it somehow)
Virtual Box will most likely work.
