FAQ has to include a note about old Intel GPU (graphics chips) . These chips are notorious for not rendering OpenGL properly, so you have to update the driver.  If you fire up AC and strange graphics things are going on, you need to update the driver.  Use a link from the Alice page.  Go ahead and use the link and make sure it works.  If you have an Intel Chip, trouble, if you are running XP, probably a bad idea.

AgentCubes

- Intel GPU (Graphics Processor) with old drivers does not render 3D graphics properly.

Older Intel GPU (graphics chips) are notorious for not rendering OpenGL properly, so you have to update the driver. If you fire up AgentCubes and strange graphics things are happening, you probably need to update the driver.
If you do not know what graphics chip you have, you can fire up AgentCubes, and the first screen does a hardware test and will tell you. Start up AgentCubes and the screen with the rotating cubes has your hardware information on it.
To update your video driver, go to the Intel website and find the latest driver. Follow download and installation instructions. To find the newest drivers, please go to the *Intel Driver Update Center: here you can find what you need, and follow the installation instruction. AgentCubes should render properly once this is done.
