Hello there everybody.
I have been running XP Media Centre Edition for between three to five years on this computer (a Dell Dimension 1100) with no issues. One week ago, however, I upgraded myself to Windows 7.
I initially was left running in a 640 screen resolution, but soon fixed this by downloading the latest drivers for my Intel chipset (82865G graphics and memory controller). These drivers were for XP, so I had to install them in compatibility mode.
I am now in the correct (1024) resolution. However, several of my games do not function correctly, and I suspect this is due to OpenGL’s abscence.
Quake 1: Launches and plays for ~1 second, crashes to desktop.
Quake 3: As Quake 1
Quake 4: As above
id-Tech3 based mods (EGL, Q2E): Error in launch console: “GLW_StartOpenGL: could not load OpenGL subsystem”
I have tried to update my drivers through Device Manager, but I am up-to-date. I have downloaded and installed DirectX11 and then DirectX9. I have searched for the correct OpenGL download. All to no avail.
Could you pelase point me to the OpenGL version I need to run these programs?
Help much appreciated, thanks in advance.
