Re: How to run Java 3D 1.6 under old Intel processors with integrated graphics?

Julien,
This is excellent news, thanks for discovering this information about the nightmare intel integrated gpus (and providing it).

For anyone else browsing this topic a very useful post about this shim is on the intel forums here
https://communities.intel.com/message/511079#511079

It has links to more information and a very detailed video of how to create this shim (and any other required shims), it's shows that it's all above board and a "proper" work around to the Intel decision to let these gpu's die.

Interestingly minecraft look like they just gave it away by setting the requirements to Ivy Bridge and up

Intel of course say the older igpu are incompatible with windows 10 (which is crazy)

Thanks,
Phil.
