opengl subsystem error, it's worst in windows 7, here is why
    #15179805 - 10/05/11 05:13 AM (9 years, 7 months ago)

the fix for this problem in windows xp is to uninstall a game, do a windows update, install the game demo, then reinstall the game. works for all quake 3 games, but windows 7 has CRAPPY open gl subsystem support, the opengl.dll file exists, but isn't updated very well.

I finally figured out my nvidia geforce4 mx400 card doesn't have driver support for windows 7 at the nvidia web site. sucks, that is why no matter what it uses a generic windows 7 driver. PAIN. any ideas? I WANT TO PLAY GAMES USING QUAKE 3 MODIFIED!! :kingcrankey::facepalm:

The point to meditating is to feel the same when you are meditation as when you aren't. To be balanced inside and out. Difficult to do when being aware of breath and sensation. However, not impossible. Feeling ok about yourself at all times seems to be a great difficult skill to master. The concept so simple a snail could understand it. To practice it some of the greatest Albert Einstein type minds couldn't master it.

It's like the trick to human problems is to be even more human. Not less human but as human as possible, only understanding human nature.

Understanding subtleties is hard. What is subtle? Subtle is powerful. Atoms are subtle. Atoms make up everything we are. Understanding subtleties is one of the hardest parts of life.

if I was trying to play call of duty, I here there is a .cnf file that you are supposed to delete, that the game rebuilds when you try and reload it, and it will rebuild it with the opengl configuration. like I said windows 7 has opengl.dll, but it's a pain because of the lack of support for games that use older drivers, but call of duty 1 doesn't have the .cnf file. this is what it has:

.dll
.exe
gamex86.dll(x86, sounds important :tongue:)
ms32.dll
uix86.dll

few others :shrug:
oh and no the patch didn't work, I'll keep looking for patches

ok I used this to investigate a little further:
http://www.mpcforum.com/showthread.php?15203-OpenGL32.dll/page2

and found that there is no opengl32.dll file in my /windows>system 32 folder. So no wonder the folder doesn't exist. SUCKS. I should investigate this further then. dammit :mad2:

http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?/topic/107987-missing-opengl32dll/

helpful a bit :cool:

ok I put the opengl32.dll wrapper into the folder directory, the same one call of duty is in, and now I get this message:

"your graphics adapter does not meet the minimum requirement for gl direct"

I guess I'll try working on this tomorrow some more. so it was an open gl system 32 folder error, but also I guess it's a driver issue. but my drivers are so up to date. also I installed everything in compatibility mode for windows xp. oh well whatever. anyone had luck with this?? THANKS

and fuck you windows, your drivers have hurt me for the billionth time. I'm tired of feeling like an underqualified nerd :stonedjerk:

Those cards were released 9 years ago. You're working with ANCIENT technology, that's probably why it doesn't work well with Windows 7.

yeah no kidding. but amazon has a nice return policy. I'm sending it back for a 338 version. it OUGHT to work, and if it doesn't, I'll return that one as well, since they told me it had suitable drivers
