    Default New Laptop with NVIDIA GeForce MX250 video card

    Hi there

    I'm looking at getting myself an i7 based laptop and I want to run MSTS on it. Does anyone here have experience running MSTS on a laptop with a NVIDIA GeForce MX250 video card?

    Thanks

    Maybe you will encounter problems with NVIDIA Optimus. In my case, MSTS crashed to the desktop until I manually changed the graphics card to the built-in Intel graphics. But I only use Open Rails anyway, it's so much better for me.

    In the Win10 era, there are no hardware configuration guarantees anymore for any old application designed for Win95 and XP. It's all a roll of the dice. Total crap shoot. Some people have success, others not so much.

    Yeah, I wouldn't worry. Get your new computer, download open rails. Run your MSTS stuff on open rails. Enjoy the upgrade!

    I run both MSTS and OpenRails. However this question was specific about MSTS as I have some Maple Leaf routes that have strange ground effects when run in OpenRails.

    So still hoping someone has experience running MSTS on a laptop with a NVIDIA GeForce MX250 video card?

    Thanks
