So lemme get this straight...

You can’t use OpenGL without a video card, then? But doesn’t that limit the game’s potential audience? I thought you could download a software version that did the job of a compatible card but is this not the case?

If it isn’t, then life as a student games-designer is a horrible one.

Huh, that’s wierd. If I can run Q3 then doesn’t that mean my card is OpenGL compatible?
