    OpenGL update?

    Hello.

    I have a problem with Hexagon 2.5, a 3D program; when I run Hexagon, a windows message says: "OpenGL 1.4 not supported. This may produce unpredictable results."

    My question is: Where or how can I update or to get an advanced version of OpenGL?

    I have Windows XP Home Edition and ATI Radeon 9200 graphic card.

    Jesus

    Re: OpenGL update?

    Your card should actually support at least 1.5

    Please make sure you have the latest ATI drivers installed. You can use this tool (http://www.realtech-vr.com/glview/) to see the actual version of OpenGL the driver supports, it may be that this "Hexagon" app just has buggy version detection.

    OpenGL driver version check (Current: 6.14.10.4013, Latest known: 1.3.1006 WinXP Release):
    Latest version of display drivers found
    According the database, you are running the latest display drivers for your video card.

    Compiled vertex array support
    This feature improves OpenGL performance by using video memory to cache transformed vertices.

    Multitexture support
    This feature accelerates complex rendering such as lightmaps or environment mapping.

    Secondary color support
    This feature provides an alternate method of coloring specular highlights on polygons.

    S3TC compression support
    This feature improves texture mapping performance in some applications by using lossy compression.

    Texture edge clamp support
    This feature improves texturing quality by adding clamping control to edge texel filtering.

    Vertex program support
    This feature enables a wide variety of effects via flexible vertex programming (equivalent to DX8 Vertex Shader.)

    No fragment program support
    This feature enables per pixel programming (equivalent to DX9 Pixel Shader.) Some current or future OpenGL programs may require this feature.

    Texture anisotropic filtering support
    This feature improves the quality of texture mapping on oblique surfaces.

    Occlusion test support
    This feature provides hardware accelerated culling for objects.

    No OpenGL Shading Language support
    This may break compatibility for applications using per pixel shading.

    No Frame buffer object support
    This may break compatibility for applications using render to texture functions.

    Well, in this case you should buy a new graphics card... a low-level modern card is pretty cheap

    2003!! your drivers are nearly 5 years old, so updating them is prolly a good idea
    also with radeon9200 u dont have support for ogl2.0 + glsl u need at least a radeon9500 for that

    Ok.

    Thanks so much. I'll buy a new graphics card.
