You need to be familar with OpenGL first.
Most people here read the specification first:
http://www.opengl.org/developers/documentation/specs.html

I suggest you read the whole spec before trying to run the software again.

Wrong forum, try reposting your question here: http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/...ber=1&SUBMIT=Go (http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/cgi_directory/forumdisplay.cgi?action=topics&number=1&SUBMIT=Go)

Or better yet see if it has already been answered there. Clue: it has so search the archives.

Hmmm. This is a very serious error. You need to pack Wolfenstein and your computer back into their boxes and return them to the place of purchase.

(Those on this forum who have read the transcript of the "support call" I am refering to above will know what I am getting at - You are too ____ to own a computer) http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/wink.gif

It's not really their fault it can't find a suitable pixel format. Looks like the software is unwisely tying z depth to color depth (I guess looking at the cryptic output). You should always fall back to a z depth of 1 or better yet go look at the enumerated PFDs and pick one (what a concept). At the very least loop through color and depth independently. Oh well, you should see the grief on the consumer forum over this crap, sigh.

There is one nice utility in net: http://www.tommti-systems.com/main-Dateien/TOOLS/dontlinkthefile_3danalyzer-v21.exe
that allows you to override OGL/DX.dlls & calls. If used with caution it can solve 99% of problems! It helped me a lot, especcialy in GTA-VC, when NV drivers (solved with recent leaked drivers) had some problems with HW vp.
