I'm experiencing severe lag playing a simple skirmish cause the game refuses to run on the nvidia card and instead runs on the useless intel integrated graphics.

I've looked for solutions but can't seem to find any whatsoever. Does anyone know how to run Generals and Zero Hour on the dedicated graphics card?

I'm playing this on a laptop with a Core i5-8250U and a GeForce MX150. I'm running the Origin version from the ultimate collection and I have Bibber's fixed launchers. I haven't noticed much issues with the campaign, but during skirmishes when the AI goes crazy with the unit spams, the game lags to near unplayability. I had the same issue with RA3 and Uprising, but after setting the nvidia card as the preferred graphics processor both those games ran fine.

But Generals on the other hand simply refuses to do so. Even after setting it as the global preferred processor, there's no change.

Has anyone experienced this issue and found a workaround or something??

How do you know the nvidia gpu is already being used? Maybe it already is.

Also, an 8th generation intel integrated graphics is more than powerful enough to run generals, the lag you're experiencing is normal and is due to the game's age, everyone experiences lag when the AI goes crazy with the units.

May I ask what map do you lag on?

EDIT: The integrated graphics present in the i5-8250u is the UHD 620, I own a GT710 and your integrated chip is around 75% faster in raw speed, I play the game fine with max graphics and only lag in the same situations as you (lots of AI units).

Task Manager shows zero percent usage plus I have the nvidia GPU activity tracker in the task bar, which says a whole bunch of stuff are running on it (including RA3 and every other game) except generals.

This was an official map. Red rock I believe.

Thanks man! I really appreciate that.

If you still want to try to run generals on the dedicated nvidia chip:
Have you tried setting the nvidia gpu as the preferred graphics processor for all programs in the nvidia control panel?
