View Full Version : OpenGL - Counter-Strike 1.5 - Troubles



07-17-2003, 05:40 PM
Hello, I have a Geforce FX5900 Ultra, with NVIDIA's 44.03 drivers installed under Windows XP Professional, and when I go to play Counter-Strike in OpenGL mode, it gives me this error:

"The selected OpenGL mode is not supported by your video card."

Any help would be appreciated http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

Well, let's start simply.

Do you have the latest update of Counterstrike?

Do you receive that message in any other OpenGL application?

I just checked Warcraft III by adding -opengl to the shortcut, and it loaded fine.

Hmmm... Why would it work in one game and not the other?

Well, it means you have a problem with Half-Life.

Either the 5900 has an issue or your copy of HL is a problem.

It isn't the card nor the game. The Nvidia driver is the problem try to use a older WHQL certified driver. This fixed the problem for me.
