Question I need help with OpenGL!!

Basically, I can't run JKII because I don't have OpenGL, it says 'Cannot open OpenGL subsystem' upon startup. Can anyone please suggest a solution? If I can get this marvellous game up and running I'd be laughing!

Cheers in advance,
Jay Ors

Note this is not a final solution:

A way to tell if its your drivers/installation for your video card is to try using the SGI software opengl driver. It is designed for cards that do not have OPENGL support, but should be able to be used on any card.

ftp://ftp.qeradiant.com/opengl/sgi/opengl2.exe

Read up on it, if I recall correctly you will put this in the base folder to be used, but READ the directions. Remember this is not hardware accelerated so its going to add a load to your CPU, expect SLOW performance. Its only to see if there is a problem with your video cards opengl drivers or for people who do not have a compatible card.

I had the same problem with my GeForce 3 ti 5x00 but when i downloaded the updated driver it works like a charm. Goto the site of the manufacturer of your video card and update your drivers it should fix the problem. Or goto device manager and goto video card, propeties, update driver

Actualyl just run safe mode, neither of these have the old OPENGL SGI renderer like the web site claimed they did.

The SDK has libs you can link, but not dynamic libs.

What kind of video card do you have? If it's nVidia, go to their site and download the official drivers (version 28.32). This is important - uninstall your old drivers first, then install the new ones, otherwise the update won't get everything. I had that exact problem a couple days ago.
