Question

Hi! I've recently installed PZ on a new laptop, specs are;

 

Windows 10

AMD Radeon 7500/7600M series

i7 3520M

16GB RAM

 

On a previous laptop ran with no issues, but I've come to install it here and I can't get it to launch. Runs through CMD window and then does nothing else. Googled and tried a lot of things - adding -novoip, running previous betas that are available, deleting the user/zomboid folder, running .bat files instead, compatibility options, 32 bit versions, etc. I can't seem to find an answer.

 

My console file is as below, could someone please help me out? It'd be hugely appreciated.

Pixel format not accelerated means the GPU doesn't support the required OpenGL version. You will need to find updated drivers for your video card, hoping that the latest version supports it.

Don't trust Windows to find the latest driver for you. 

AMD Catalyst drivers for that card range should be at 15.7.1.

Unfortunately, that's quite an old GPU (about 7 years I think?) so if the latest driver doesn't fix it, only a GPU upgrade would fix the issue.

I was trusting Windows about having the latest graphic drivers for my card. Went and downloaded from manufacturer website, and we're good to go. Top man! Thank you very much.
