View Full Version : (Settlers 7) GPU Selection Issue

09-07-2019, 07:44 AM
I'm trying to play Settlers 7 and am encountering an issue. I've got an older machine, and am using both the motherboard's onboard Intel Graphics to drive my secondary display, and an ATI R7 200 to drive my primary. Unfortunately when I try to launch Settlers 7 it's not only going to my secondary monitor, but it's also using the Intel onboard grapics instead of the ATI. This behaviour doesn't carry over to any other games i've played, as the windows default is the ATI card and the primary monitor.

I've found the settings.ini, but see no option to set a display device in there. Anyone know of a work around other than disabling the GPU in device manager every time I want to play?

You are not the only one with this issue: https://forums.ubisoft.com/showthread.php/2060608-Settlers-7-History-Edition-multi-GPU-problem
I opened a similar thread some time ago with the same problem.
The game is incapable of adequately working in a multi-GPU setup.

Our pleas seem to fall upon deaf ears.

Hey guys,

you can manually force the game to use your dedicated GPU instead of your integrated one, should the game not pick it by default.
