Thanks for the info I will try the mod when I get my UX

BTW I've just found an amazing list of working games for the GMA945, which should be compatible with UX GMA950 I assume:

http://groups.google.com/group/intel9x-gaming/web/games-that-work-intel-gma-950

Even better is that it's mentioned there the best config with 3danalyze and all for each game, I can imagine some of them may not work due to the cpu, but at least it's worth a look.

Also check: http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/intel945gm/sb/CS-021400.htm

I'm pretty sure I saw at least two posts mentioning that lock on crashes, if I remember well. Apparently Falcon 4 works, and that's a great flight sim too.

One question, is there any program that could allow the mouse to work like a directional pad?. It could be useful for emulators.

Apparently ppjoy 0.83 would allow just do that:

or here: http://ppjoy.bossstation.dnsalias.org/PPJoySetup.zip

I wanted to try Braid and this would be useful

nowadays I'm playing Risk 2 on my UX. not a new game maybe, but I must say it is a very enjoyable one for me. it is ideal for stylus playing and you can play against real people too..

I think I will get my UX this week, so hopefully I can update with some games that work with it :D

Hi all,

Here is a really nice Diablo clone that works well on our UMPC's.

anybody tried the modded intel mobile 4 chipset graphics drivers for the GMA950
seems like you can play a lot more games that are normally unplayable

Well, some of the stuff I've tried:

Braid: works but it's really slow, unplayable, I don't undestand why since it's shouldn't be so taxing.

Dungeons and Dragons Online: Works ok. With everything low, and even with medium textures, it did just fine after a few secs that the textures loaded into memory. I was in the big city after the newbie zone so probably it could work much better outside.

Psychonauts: Works great at 640x480

Beyond Good and Evil: At 640x480, with everything low and most of the advanced options turned off, it works ok and really it's still a very beatiful game.

Bionic Commando Rearmed: Couldn't make it work even with 3d Analyze

Monkey Island Special Edition: Incredibly beatiful in the UX, however at 1024x600 it's slow while moving. At 640x480 it works slightly better but with black borders.

Neverwinter Nights 2: When patched, 3danalyze bypasses the 3d check but crashes back to desktop. With basic install it just hangs on a black loading screen.

Thief 3 Just wow, this game works fine at 640x480 and looks beautiful in the UX

I'm totally amazed with this device, I've had a wibrain and a Raon Note. Supposedly the Note was a beast for its size with dual core and ati card, but I couldn't make some games work at all like Thief 3, and others like Psychonauts worked similarly or even worse, and the UX is a much smaller device.

It's a pity the HDD is so small since I can't try too many games, but really this device is awesome.
