Why can't I play Jedi Knight II?

  1. I recently bought Star Wars: Best of PC, and I installed Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. I tried to play and couldn't, although when I clicked on Analyze Your Computer, it said my PC was qualified to play the game. When the game fails, it says:

    Never mind! I downloaded a new driver after reading cases similar to this one. I got one that supported OpenGL up to 2.0. It worked and was free!
