How can you tell that it's not supported?  What fails?  Is there a message?

You've tried updating your video drivers, right?

I've had this problem before on laptops (InvalidEnum).  I guess laptop video cards/drivers aren't so good with gaming... other games must go to a lot of work to make their games work on laptops.  I'm not sure what to do about it.

Were you using the sample project template in the file menu, or loading some other sample project?

I must not have been clear enough in my question, so let me try suggesting something else.  Rather than opening a sample project, try creating a new project based on the sample project template.  Of course updating your drivers is important too; I just want to make sure I understand exactly what you've tried.

Have you been able to get anything to run or use the map editor?  If you can't get samples to work, spending time on a new project might be risky -- you'll find out after putting effort into the project that no projects will run on your system.

Anyone who has had problems with video hardware/driver support should try again with SGDK 2.1.9 which offers better video support.

My 560gtx seems to work for the most part but in the map editor there is an issue where the tiles don't seem to refresh correctly.  Does anyone else have this issue?

My Nvida 660m (laptop) graphics card seems to have some issues. It runs but it stutters. Even in the editor I notice the mouse will skip some.

Never seen this thread! Well I'm having screen flickering issues myself when I run my game, but I'm using some intel tablet with integrated graphics.

Does that apply to running the sample project too?

No, seems to be games where a large amount of layers are on screen.

Particularly my game and Vincent's work of art.
Strange how the flickers are constrained only to the Form window.

What about you, chanpod?
