View Full Version : OpenGL won't initialize



01-09-2001, 12:53 PM
I am trying to get OpenGL to run in the games that need it but it doesn't. I tried using Star Trek Voyager: Elite Forces and it said it couldn't initialize OpenGL, what is the deal. I have made sure it is installed and according to the Extensions Manager it is enabled, so what gives? Can anyone help?

A few possibilities:

* if you have an ATI RageIIc, you are screwed when it comes to OpenGL games because you will never get hardware acceleration. This is possible on rev A/ rev B iMacs and the first generation beige G3s

* you need more memory; install some RAM or if that's not feasible try turning on virtual memory and jacking it up

* your video card driver extensions are disabled or some of them are missing

If you need more help, post details about your system & maybe we can figure something out.
