Where is the D-Force manual so I can RTFM

I want to read the funny manual for D-Force so I will know what I am doing and not ask stupid questions because I did not RTFM?

  • The sticky thread provides a technical overview, but no real hands-on "to achieve X, perform Y" instruction. Hit me up if you have questions the sticky thread either doesn't cover adequately or takes too long to get to.

    I got this far in trying to figure it out.

    What video card/GPU do you have? What CPU?

    hmmm not sure but I am trying to figure out ASAP

    edit: is this the CPU info you wanted?

  • You might have to download and install the Intel OpenCL drivers to use the CPU for dForce. If that's a laptop, it should have either an Nvidia or AMD GPU (Graphics Processor), and should be capable of OpenCL 2.1, which dForce requires. There should have been an error stating the OpenCL kernels weren't compiled the first time you ran the simulation. If you don't let it compile the kernels, you can't play with it.

     

  • Yes, that CPU should be supported by the intel OpenCL drivers - it's linked from the https://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/203081/dforce-start-here#latest thread.

    Richard,this

    I tried running this and got the attached error message.  My set up pc has motherboard graphics, rather than a GPU.  If I understand the message correctly, I have to uninstall the graphics driver for the motherboard before I can install Open CL. I am reluctant to do anything this drastic, since the motherboard is about four or five years old and I don't have copies of the other drivers.

    Cheers,

    Alex.

    The best way for intel is to use the DSA so it does everything by itself. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html

    If you have a nvidia card you should be fine with the latest drivers too. Unless the card is Fermi or below that only supports OpenCL 1.1. For example 800M 820M notebook cards are Fermi. So it doesn't necessarily mean that it has to be an old card.

    I assume that's a typo for OpenCL 1.2
