has your notebook a AMD/ATI or Nvidia card? If not, it's very unlikely that you can play under shader >2.

I have the same problem for RO. My graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 6770M and runs all games on max graphics, except RO. It says on startup that the card is unsupported, and so I can only run it on Shader 2.0 on Intel HD Graphics. I'm fairly sure my card is better than the recommended Radeon series on RO's website.

Unfortunately, despite the massive amount of time I spend on the computer, I have no clue how to fix things Any advice would be appreciated.

For me problem is because this laptop uses 2 graphics cards. For example you have one integrated inside CPU and other is ATI/NVIDIA one. If RO detect only integrated one you will get such results. It will use only the crappy one which will give you lower shader model and crappy FPS.

Any way to get it to detect ATI instead of Intel?

I switched off of ATI because even when Regnum detected ATI cards properly, it still always had massive graphical bugs and slowdowns in them.

Games never seem to fully support anything other than NVIDIA, Intel and ATI tend to be just YMMV (Your Milage May Vary).

File a bug report with Frosk and hope that it gets fixed...

Not unless you want the weak Intel graphics to get disabled. If its a laptop, it likely needs them enabled to switch to them on battery power for efficiency.

If you want to disable it entirely and always use the more powerful hardware, there is usually an option in BIOS (DEL or F1 after power-on).

You have dual GPU's on an alienware? The launcher reports what card it detects, what does it say there?

OP is the one with the Alienware, I'm on HP. RO launcher recognises ATI but won't work on it. I disabled Intel last night and it just resulted in RO still not recognising my video card and not starting at all.
