Could not load OpenGL. Make sure that you have the latest drivers for your video card from the manufacturer’s web site.

Could you please direct me to these updates, Thanks

Uh… what kind of video card do you have?

I have a nvidia riva tnt2 64 pro, can you help me

trying to load the game, in the end of the game’s console it says “couldn’t load opengl subsystem”

For nvidia cards, go there and click “Graphics Drivers” etc…

i updated the driver, and it’s stays the same.
can anyone help?

Well, do you have Matlab installed ? Heard that it can disable OpenGL hardware acceleration.

Else you can run Glinfo
and post what it reports as GL vendor and renderer. It it is Microsoft / gdi generic (software emulation), the graphic drivers were not installed properly or another process steal hardware acceleration, if it is Nvidia, OpenGL should work.

I am running out of ideas.
EDIT: spelling and added renderer.

no, don’t have matlab, what is it?
can you tell me what kind of programs, can steal gl’s acceleration?

driver version -
vendor - microsoft corporation
renderer- gdi generic
opengl version - 1.1.0

google matlab, you will find out.

can you tell me what kind of programs, can steal gl’s acceleration?
I know some DirectX progs can do that. Normally multiple OpenGL programs can run at the same time though.

Are you really positive you installed properly the nvidia driver ? In display control panel, can go to advanced, clisk on the nvidia tabs, and post the driver version it says ?
