    very disappointed.
    I bought the game at the end of last year and shortly thereafter an update came out and after that I was never able to play again.
    Before this update worked perfectly.
    My video card is Iris Pro Graphics 5200 and only this game tells me that I do not have enough memory.
    In this same computer game Asseto, iRacing, AMS and even Euro Truck without any problem.
    Why only RF2 can not work with this card?
    Why almost a year later this problem has not been detected yet? I can not believe that just me in the world try to play the RF2 on a video card of this.
    Thank you for your help.

    How much vram do you have?
    As far as I know, factor2 need about 4gb vram.

    Where and when does rF2 tell you there's not enough memory? Can you post a screenshot?

    rF2 is slowly being rebuilt by the new ownership team. It is quite possible that changes and upgrades may have rendered older hardware parts obsolete. You should be able to use the Steam launcher to re-load v1109, which should better conform with older hardware.
    However, going back to the older versions may prevent the newer car packs from operating.

    On chip intel GPU's have never been supported. The minimum requirements specify either a Geforce or Radeon graphics card. Now that rFactor2 has moved to DirextX11, your Intel graphics doesn't have proper hardware transform and lighting.

    You can get rid of the "not enough memory" message, by going into your bios, and allocating 1gb of system memory to the intel graphics, but the performance will be diabolical.

    click on the helmet to start single player, load the logo image of Rf2 and before loading the full screen with the opening of the game appears this message.

    clicking on NO the game opens and it seems to run normal until I try to get on the track, nor can you leave the box.

    my video card provides at least 1.5Gb of ram and says I do not even have 512Mb.

    I will do this and see if it solves and definitely explains the problem. Thank you.

    thank you all for the help, as soon as you have an answer the tips given I put here for everyone to know.
    Once again, thank you for the support.

    Surely you have to click on 'Sim'! This is rF2! :p

    I would have thought that message would be based on a reading that's not correct, with the GPU effectively not getting more memory until it needs it or in itself just never reporting the shared memory it uses. But I don't have experience with integrated graphics (in the last 20 years, anyway) so I'm not sure how it normally works. Seems strange that other games would work and rF2 wouldn't, though.

    Check if your Graphics card is selected in the Launcher - Settings - Video Settings

    thanks, I already did this and did not respond, even selecting the video card does not read enough memory.

    yes, what surprised me was the fact that all other games run normally and only the RF2 display graphics problems.
    I thought of obsolete computer for the graphical news as it was already spoken, but when I call other games and everything is normal it seemed to me a punctual problem with this game.

    We might need to rely on the devs to supply the root cause here, not sure anyone's done enough testing to know exactly how the game does things.

    However, we also know from PCIe requirements that rF2 places some unusual demands on hardware, which is a little concerning for integrated graphics using shared memory. I suspect you'd never get satisfactory performance without a dedicated (discrete) GPU.
