TM Sunrise not supporting dedicated graphics cards???

Alright, here's the deal. I put Windows 10 and Windows 7 dual boot on both my gaming rig (with a GTX 1080) and my gaming laptop (with a GTX 980m) in order to play games like this one that have DRM protection.

I know for a fact I installed Sunrise correctly as I followed the "TMSunrise working on Windows 7 x64!!!" post to a tee and have a weaker laptop with HD Graphics 620 running the game perfectly.

I'm also aware that this is a fairly common issue with newer graphics cards, but that integrated graphics and older, weaker graphics cards have gotten the game to run perfectly.

My question is, has anyone out there been able to get the game running on a fairly recent, higher level graphics card? If so, how? I really don't wanna have to pull out a whole other computer just to play one game when I have TWO monster PC's that could both play it with G-SYNC and high refresh rates.

To get the game working on newer GPU's and with systems that have 8 GB of RAM or more, it is recommended to use a DirectX wrapper.
Using a DirectX wrapper will make the game run almost perfectly like it does on older operating systems.

Hello Evanite !
I had a similar problem recently, and I fixed it by a quick trick :

All you have to do is to start the launcher of the game, then Click Configure / Advanced / Compatibilty and then put AGP usage to 100%
Finaly click Ok / Ok / then Save.
