    Quake3 problems

    Can any body pleeeeease help.

    I can not start Quake3 on my PC. I have a Creative Riva TNT2 32meg card. I have tried three different driver already being NVidia 3.68, 5.08 and 5.13. I also used the GLSetup program to download the drivers for my card from the internet. It reported that I had newer drivers on my machine, later I forced the glsetup drivers. But alas Quake still won't run. It keeps on giving the following message in the console box:

    Re: Quake3 problems

    I get exactly the same console message. Even trying to run Q2 demo, if I switch the video setting to OpenGl, it automatically switches back to software rendering. I have a Apollo with Nvidia TNT2 M64 32Mb chipset. I have installed the latest drivers for this chipset and I have also run the latest build for OpenGl setup. Have you found a solution to this problem or can anyone else please help.
