    Unable to enable 3D Hardware Acceleration in PopCap Games

    I'm running on AMD Sapphire 7850 2GB OC. All PopCap Games works fine on my previous Windows versions. I couldn't change resolutions or enable hardware accelerations. Stuck on full screen.

    I've done clean install for Windows 10, reinstalled the AMD driver v15.7.1 and still no solution. I've seen those games whitelisted on Sticky Thread, anyone can help me solve this glitch?

    Thanks and regards.

    Not much help but just to say you're not alone in having the same message with a PopCap game (happening with Bejeweled Twist). It occurs differently though. I have an Nvidia GeForce 650 graphics card and the game will run windowed in with the 800 x 600 setting. Trying to run it at a higher resolution full-screen is when the message arises. The game can crash too. It worked OK with Windows 8.1.

    Bejeweled Twist is quite an old game now and maybe it won't ever work with Windows 10. Windows Store has 'Bejeweled Live'. Not bad but not as good as Bejeweled Twist. Bookworm (another PopCap game) looked like it might not work but did run full screen after giving a warning that the graphics card may not fully support hardware acceleration. Again, no problem running the game in Windows 8.1.

    Did you try running it in compatibility mode?

    I've sent report regarding this matter. Once I installed AMD Catalyst 15.7.1, game is totally unplayable.

    For AMD users, do take part of it AMD Issue Reporting Form.
    I'm not sure about Nvidia, sorry

    Try playing around with the compat.cfg, having a look at it now.
