No suitable physical device

  • I am getting that message when I try to play on my laptop. My laptop is a low end gaming machine with a 2gb video card and also a 3gb nvidia video card. It played AFS2 well but I guess the new sim is a bit more resource hungry. No biggie for me because I am also downloading it to my gaming PC which my my wife uses for work. At least I can get to play after hours on that one but others with dual video cards may not be happy. This is my error log in case I am wrong.
