    When I try to install the Joint Operations demo, I get this message:

    NVIDIA RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64 Pro:

    This video card does not support HW T&L (Hardware accelerated Transform & Lighting). Joint Operations: Typhoon Rising requires a video card that supports HW T&L, and therefore will not run on this device

    Does this mean that the Fujitsu S6210 will not be able to play this game either? Is there anything I can do about it?

    Is it the S6210 that your trying install and run the demo on?
    I'm a little confused. I'm not surprised that the TNT2 does not support HW T&L as that chip is 5 years old (on the market in 1999).
    Thats not what the S6210 has in it is it?
    If not then the S6210 should do better as it should have a fairly new GPU in it.

    Sorry about the confusion. I tried to install and run it on my HP desktop. The S6210 has the intel extreme graphics with 64mb shared. So will it work?

    It probably doesn't have the power with the integrated graphics, or more likely the game doesn't recongnize the graphics chip and thus assumes that you don't have the requirements. As for the laptop I have no idea what your vid card is to comment on that.
    Perhaps your best bet would be to contact the game manufacturer to see if they know a workaround/solution.

    Another option is to check Intel.com to see if there are any issues with that game. I know that somewhere on Intel's website is a list of compatibility issues with many games and possible work arounds.

    Second, I would suggest to see if you have the latest drivers while you are at Intel's site. Sometimes computer manufacturers are a little slow on posting the latest drivers, etc.
