As the title says, I cant run JA. Every time i try, it immedeatly closes, and the not-in-game console says this: JA: v1.0.0.0 win-x86 Aug 5 2003 Initialising zone memory ..... ----- FS_Startup ----- Current search path: C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base\mapextras.pk3 (55 files) C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base\assets2.pk3 (62 files) C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base\assets1.pk3 (8320 files) C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData\base\assets0.pk3 (15346 files) C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData/base ---------------------- 23783 files in pk3 files execing default.cfg couldn't exec jaconfig.cfg couldn't exec autoexec.cfg ...detecting CPU, found AMD w/ 3DNow! ------- Input Initialization ------- Skipping check for DirectInput Joystick is not active. ------------------------------------ ----- Client Initialization ----- ----- Initializing Renderer ---- ------------------------------- ----- Client Initialization Complete ----- --- Common Initialization Complete --- Working directory: C:\Program Files\LucasArts\Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy\GameData Initializing OpenGL subsystem ...initializing QGL succeeded ...setting mode 4: 800 600 FS ...using desktop display depth of 32 ...calling CDS: ok ...registered window class ...created [EMAIL="window@0,0"]window@0,0[/EMAIL] (800x600) Initializing OpenGL driver ...getting DC: succeeded ...GLW_ChoosePFD( 32, 24, 8 ) ...35 PFDs found ...GLW_ChoosePFD failed ...GLW_ChoosePFD( 32, 24, 0 ) ...35 PFDs found ...GLW_ChoosePFD failed ...failed to find an appropriate PIXELFORMAT ...restoring display settings ...WARNING: could not set the given mode (4) ...setting mode 3: 640 480 FS ...using colorsbits of 16 ...calling CDS: ok ...created [EMAIL="window@0,0"]window@0,0[/EMAIL] (640x480) Initializing OpenGL driver ...getting DC: succeeded ...GLW_ChoosePFD( 16, 16, 0 ) ...35 PFDs found ...GLW_ChoosePFD failed ...GLW_ChoosePFD( 16, 16, 0 ) ...35 PFDs found ...GLW_ChoosePFD failed ...failed to find an appropriate PIXELFORMAT ...restoring display settings ...WARNING: could not set the given mode (3) ...shutting down QGL ...unloading OpenGL DLL ----- CL_Shutdown ----- ----------------------- GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem

What OS do you have? XP or Vista? What graphic card do you have? Have you tried updating graphic drivers? From your console report I see your game isn't patched, so do that too. If none of this helps, go to your Base folder and remove jaconfig.cfg (for singleplayer) and/or jampconfig.cfg (for multiplayer) and try running the game. You don't have to delete them; just move them to some other folder where JA won't be able to find them. Good luck.

You don't need to patch a game to get it running; if that were the case, no game developers would ever be able to sell a new product. OpenGL errors are most commonly received either from older cards which do not support OpenGL, or from cards with outdated graphics drivers. First ensure that your card meets the minimum requirements for JK3, and if it does then simply make sure the drivers are up to date (sometimes if you're using a newer card, especially an ATI card, you may need to roll back to older drivers). These should be the first steps you try with an OpenGL error. If that doesn't solve your problem you may want to post some more specific information about your system, such as your hardware specs.

If your game has been working for years, as you say, have you made any changes recently between the period where your game worked and now?

[COLOR=Navy]I don't understand everything what did you say, but I think you didn't installed the good video card driver...I remember this question was here a few week ago...maybe you should see that topic...If this game was working fine a time ago, then maybe a few files of your video card driver has been deleted...I haven't more idea...[/COLOR][COLOR=Navy]Good Luck...[/COLOR]

You have made sure you don't have any jamp.exe (or jasp.exe) processes running right?

It does sound like a driver issue, but that doesn't really make sense if it was working fine before hand.

Well, there was this time a couple months ago where almost everything was broken. The computer was stuck at like 640/??? and at 256 colors. I think it might have stopped working right after that.

What graphic card do you have? If you don't know, here's the way to find out: Right click on Desktop and choose Properties. Now, go to Settings tab and look under Display to see what graphic card you have (NVIDIA, ATI or some third company) and the exact model/generation. If you click Advanced, you should see at least one tab related to your graphic card. There you can find additional informations about your graphic card, including the currently installed driver version. Tell me at least what graphic card you have and I'll look for new drivers since this appears to be driver issue.
