It works fine on mine, anew Dell Latitude. I think it might not have worked well when it first came out, but I don't know if it's still an issue with newer computers.

It's not an issue with newer computers either.

I'm running a Pavilion dv6, and it's working like a dream.

It doesn't know, it's not a magic program. :D hehe.

But seriously, I'm supposing what it means is it does not directly support laptops meaning that if you find a problem with controls you deal with it. I bought Ghost Master on Steam as well (amazing, 95cents)and the touch pad makes the controls screwy, of course just plugging in a mouse fixes those issues.

Use the above link to download 3d analyzer and see if you can use that to play the game

My guess is when this game came out Laptops didn't have graphic cards.

Thats not true!

I have a laptop and it runs perfectly! I even installed some mods for widescreen resolution.
