Spoofing GPU to run a high end game.

There is a known solution used with a small program called 3D Analyze.

This solution did not work for me when I tested it with two games.

The game I am trying to get to run at the moment is Warcraft III Reforged. It works in 2 modes. It is currently launching with classic setting which uses the same graphics as the original one from 2003. That defeats the purpose. I want to run it in Reforged mode which uses much better graphics.

I installed the game on 3 devices that I have here but all failed to get it to working in that mode. Apparently none of them meet the requirements to do so.

So I want to find a way to fool the game into thinking that I do have the requirements to run it. One of the devices that I am using can run just about any game. I played all Spellforce games including the one that came out in 2020. I played them all on minimum setting with lag but at least it worked.

Is there a way to changed the games programing and change the requirements so that it works.

There is a switch button in video options to change it to what I want. It does not work and gives a msg that I don't have the requirements to run it in the other mode.

A graphics card is hardware and has physical limitations. If what you have doesn't support certain features the computer would likely just crash or you'd burn out your current GPU since it physically can't keep up with the game. Another likely scenario is the game would run so poorly it wouldn't be playable.

There is no way to fake it. That 3D-Analyse as stated only emulates a couple of features and states it only works for some games.

Ok, is there another way to emulate a GPU other than 3D-Analyze or swiftshader?

One time I used a wrapper to run a game in just software accelerator.

Do you know any Wrapper that I can test to do similar things?

Not that I'm aware of. Any type of emulation would have to be handled by the CPU and memory, so you'd still end up overwhelming your hardware

What type of GPU are you using?

Over at overclock.net......there's some guys that do alternative BIOS to some GPU's that increases performance of the card. I'm not into that sort of thing but it might be worth a look over there. That's all them guys/gals do over there......hence the name. They over clock everything.

Just a thought, don't know if it helps, the other way around: right click on the desktop background, select 'NVidia configuration', open it and select '3D-settings', and on its turn select in that screen the tab 'Program settings' and add your game with the GPU of your choice to the list.

I wish I have Nvidia. On all three laptops it is intel GPU or maybe not GPU. I think it just uses the CPU.

I think all I need to do is to trick the game into thinking that I have the minimum requirements posted below.

NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 450 or AMD Radeon™ HD 5750 or better...

I don't want to overclock it as it is risky and might cause damage.

I did face an issue with another game on one of the laptops and finally launched it with a direct X wrapper, but then the game would just work on software acceleration and that is just too slow. So then I installed it on another laptop with slightly better specs and played it on minimum settings. I am sure that Spellforce III has more requirements than Warcraft III Reforged so that is why I need a way to trick the game into thinking I have the requirements.

I don't know about you, but I also pay attention to graphics, because it creates a special atmosphere. I play online casino games and I like when it is created in such a way that you feel like being in a real one. However, there are other important factors that I pay attention to in order to make money. It is very risky to play online because there is a big chance to be fooled. This is why I always play only on reliable sites, and almost all of them I found on this site https://www.sharpgambler.co.uk/ that also offers a guide for beginners.
