I have SiS6236 card

You answered your own question. You really need to get a REAL™ video card if you expect to play games on the PC.

find out what type of video card you have, you have lost your drivers, for e-ge-force cards go to -evga.com - support- download drivers. if you have a glw errer your computer needs the video card drivers.

XP assumes that everything will be run by DirectX

May I as what the pak6EnUk.pk3 and the pak7.pk3 are for?
My mohaa game contains the following paks:
pak6.pk3 (104 files)
Pak5.pk3 (259 files)
Pak4.pk3 (593 files)
Pak3.pk3 (669 files)
Pak2.pk3 (4722 files)
Pak1.pk3 (772 files)
Pak0.pk3 (11175 files)

So I do not have the pak7.pk3 and my pak6 do not end with EnUk. And my files are different size the those posted above.
Anyone know why that is?

I have a problem with any game I download, for example Return to castle Wolfenstein : enemy territory. I have an ATI RAGE 128 Pro and Win XP.

I have the same message like everyone (GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem) and I did download the driver for my video card, but I can't seem to install it, because it says this driver is not compatible with my card. The problem is I did download the correct driver.

Can somebody help, I dont wanna buy a new video card. thx
