I really don't know what to do.

I've been aching lately to play JK3 again. What stopped me in the first place is the error I've been getting at the initiation window: "Cannot initiate OpenGL subsystem." I've been told that there is a software called OpenGL that solves this problem. I don't want to purchase any additional software. The game worked before without this OpenGL, so maybe I can somehow revert back to original settings, or something? I want to know how to fix this. Is there a way to bypass this error?

You need the latest OpenGL drivers for your graphics card.

I don't have the first clue about finding them, unless you happen to have an nVidia GeForce4 MX440, so the best place to check is probably the manufacturer's website for whoever made your graphics card.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

:lol: Don't know your graphics card...

Okay, if my computer is like the norm, right click My Computer, go to the Hardware tab, and click Device Manager. Your graphics card should be listed under Display adapters.

It seems that the driver "S3 Graphics TwisterK 00860E11" is under the Microsoft Corporation (to the best of my knowledge). I went to their site before to look for a driver update, but the search function was most difficult to fiddle with. Help me out here, please.

On the Start menu, select Run, type in dxdiag, and press enter. Wait for DXDiag (DirectX Diagnostic Tool) to finish loading, then select the Display tab.

Right underneath the tab, should be the name of your graphics card. Click the thumbnail below to check the pic, it shows you where the name of your card is displayed. dxdiag2lq.th.jpg

Once you know the name of your card, you can Google for the OpenGL drivers.

Oh, and it may be worth upgrading to DirectX 9.0c too. You can get that from (*shudder*) Microsoft's site, although to find it, just type that in on Google and the first link that comes up should be the right one. :)
