Well, being that I'm a lame-ass (I haven't bought a new video card in years because I am saving to get a geforce 3) I have this annoying problem with WCIII, It won't load because my card is not supported by directx. However when I use the video card test application that blizzard posted, it works wonderfully in opengl, my question is, is there a way to get into WCIII via opengl from the start. Bypassing DirectX if possible.

As far as I know Warcraft III only supports D3D which automatically means that your card will have to be supported by directX. Do you know how much memory your video card has ? I have seen this game run on a 300Mhz celeron with an 8MB rage pro video card.

:dance: Actually, if you add -opengl to the command line of WCIII, it will play in opengl mode.

Example,

"C:\Program Files\WarCraft III\Warcraft III.exe" -opengl
