@PresenceOfMind Same boat, I am using an 870M, cant use the recommended driver as it isnt available to me. Why have 660 listed as minimum if the driver they require isnt supported haha.

Refunding until further notice I guess.

Star Wars Squadrons driver issues

★★★ Novice

I was using 451.48 NVIDIA game ready driver and all games worked well for me. After downloading Star Wars Squadrons it said that I must update my drivers. After doing so, ROBLOX would launch but the video part wasn't working, only independent audio. I tried launching Star Wars Squadrons, but it wouldn't even work at all, the screen was all black. I already tried downloading several drivers, both old and new, and nothing seemed to fix the problem. Any ideas why this would be happening? Please let me know if I can fix this issue somehow!

You likely need the latest NVIDIA drivers. Some were released just before the game went live.

I also have trouble with this. My computer is tailored for graphic use, as I work in the design industry. I even have a powerful Radeon graphics card. For some reason the new version of AMD's 20.4.2 driver does not recognize my card as being installed/or valid and refuses to install. The game refuses to play because my driver is too old.

 

PLEASE tell me there will be a fix for this. I am not skating by on minimum requirements, and and very disappointed to be left behind by a technicality NOT SPECIFIED in the technical documents.

Update: EA considers graphics drivers the user's problem. My support ticket answer was "Install a new Graphics Card." Do not look to official patches, there are not trying to solve the issue.

Re: Workaround for latest driver update for unsupported NVIDIA 770M?

★★★★★ Novice

If it makes you feel better, I have driver 456.55 and I can't even get the game to load. I don't even know what the main menu looks like.
