Ok I did have a voodoo 3dfx that worked fine with open gl and wicked gl together, sicne i got a new graphics card (Gainward Pro/TV 600 64mb) which was installed as Nvidia GeForce 4 Mx 440 driver.

It says on the back of the box 'OPEN GL 1.3 compatible' under the API section so i figured i would be able to run open gl and ToD (tour of duty) but once i tried to access the console to connect to a server it had some kind of HL.exe error or something and crashed the console plus ToD is only a Open GL run game and i am a clan founder/co-leadre and i really need to get back on it soon... PLEASE HELP.

Also a disk came with the gfx card but i couldnt find any kind of open gl driver on there although i found .dll's... ???

help me please...

from a desperate clan leader - thanks

Ok dude take it easy there.

OpenGL support has to be supplied through the vendors display drivers.

In your case you should go to www.nvidia.com (http://www.nvidia.com) and download the latest reference (Detonators) drivers.

Somethings you have to keep in mind (and yes Windows sucks):

1.) Always make sure you completly uninstall any old drivers.

2.) If you 'upgrade' your windows from a later version dont expect anything to work as you are used too.

3.) Virus protection software wont allow drivers to install properly.
