OpenGL problem

Hi, I am using an IBM notebook 2626-LNU (p3/128mb). I have just loaded soldiers of fortune and when I run the program it gives an error - “could not intialize OpenGl rendering environment”. I have neo magic display driver but there isnt any dedicated 3d video graphics card. Is there any way I can run this game. Please advice.

If I recall correctly, NeoMagic laptop chipsets did not have hardware 3D acceleration so they wouldn’t have had an OpenGL driver to go with.

You could alternately confirm this by running DirectX control panel diagnostic utility DXDiag.exe and see what Direct3D reports.

You could try running the Mesa software OpenGL implementation, like the one included as part of SciTech GLDirect, but your laptop CPU would be doing all the rendering.
