    Check to see if there are any newer drivers available for that graphics card.
    Other than that you'd have to try running in software rendering with the r_allowSoftwareGL "1" command in your config file.
    Probably be far better off getting a new graphics card though.

    Another thing you might look into is making sure that you have an up to date DirectX.

    Try going to and download the latest glsetup, and download OpenGL 2.0. It could be that you don't have OpenGL installed :p. But, also try Demiurg's link.

    Is your video card on PCI or AGP?

    I need help too!

    I am SO lost! :( . I have the same problem with Wolfenstein enemy territories. I was wondering if someone could tell me exactly what to do about this OpenGL subsystem thing!? I am so clueless :dead: ??? I have Matrox G-100 display adapter so if you can provide me with the link of the site where I can download this stupid Open GL thing that'd be great. Thanks! :cool:
