3d view gives error

Postby creekmonkey » Mon Sep 21, 2009 8:29 pm

When I try to view my terrain in 3d I get this error

CSapphireWnd::ShowWnd error:
- OpenGL 2.0 is not supported on your system. Please update drivers.

I ran the opengl extension viewer, which says my opengl driver is 1.4.

I am using the standard version. I had previously used L3DT successfully with an older version. Also the pro trial version didnt give this error. Any Help?

Hi Creekmonkey,

Newer versions of the Sapphire renderer use OpenGL 2.0 because it adds support for texture sizes that are not powers of two.

I suggest you update the drivers for your graphics card or chip. You can download drivers for NVIDIA from here, for ATI / AMD from here, and for other vendors from their respective websites.

Best regards,

Thanks aaron. I did update driver but some of my other software would not function with the updated driver (go figure). I found an older realease of L3DT v2.5c standard which I still had. That will have to do for now.
