Default If you got the opengl error read this first!

Taken from the enemy-territory faq. Edited a little by me.


I'm posting this in a whole section of it's own, as it is the number 1 most commonly asked question in ET.


Your video card drivers doesn’t have OpenGL drivers installed.


To fix this go to your graphics card manufacturer’s website and download drivers (or install them off the install disk that comes with the hardware). This commonly occurs when windows XP standard drivers are used.

General Sources:
# ATI Drivers
# NVIDIA Drivers


# There are also sites that compile lots of drivers. Here are a few to help you find the driver you need: www.driverguide.com
# drivers.softpedia.com
# www.opendrivers.com
# www.geeks.com/drivers.asp


This error can also occur if you have a wrong video mode for your system (monitor). I.e. a resolution of 1280x1024 won't work with a 1280x800 TFT.


If you have an openGL error, you will normally see this text:
