How can I get my computer to play Shadow of Mordor?

Episode 1196 (22:55)

Ed from Valencia, CA

Ed downloaded the game "Middle Earth: Shadow of Modor," and then got a message that said "installed video does not support DirectX features." Leo says that this is one of the reasons why he prefers console games because they don't do things like this. But in Windows, the PC has to meet the games' specifications.

He should check out his optional updates in Windows to see if there's a new version of DirectX available. Real time rendering is more of a challenge than video playback though, so it's odd that he'd end up with this issue. A stand alone video card may help, and he could get one for less than $100. He can also try updating his video card drivers.
