    Possible OpenGL related crash

    Hello everyone,

    I have a problem with my computer and OpenGL related games. Most of the time when I play an OpenGL based game, I unexpectedly get hunged, or crashed during gameplay. It's unpredictable. I get crashed at any time. The computer just freezes with no error messages of the sort. I would have to reset my computer just to get out of it.

    I've explained this problem to several other boards and newgroups. Most of the say that I should upgrade or downgrade my video card drivers. However, none of that has helped me. Can someone out there please help me with this annoying problem of mine? Much appreciation to all who help.

    Computer Specs:

    - Pentium III 500 Mhz
    - 128 SDRAM
    - 24 Gig left harddrive
    - Diamond Stealth III S540 32 MB 4x AGP video card (with latest drivers and glsetup drivers)

    I have the same problem. I'm running a K7 700mhz, 256 MB RAM, 18 GIG free with an ATI Rage Fury MAXX card.Q3A crashes just as you described. I disabled GL extensions and it runs perfectly. What am I loosing by disabling this?

    Check your AGP aperture size in your BIOS Setup. Start at half of what your total system memeory is and go down. This solved my problems in OpenGL.

    Re: Possible OpenGL related crash

    This is not funny at all. I have the same problem with open GL. It freezes up in Half Life and Opposing Force but not when 3dfx is used!. When it works (for a total of 5-10minutes, it's fantastic and better than the 3dfx. Only way out is to reset the computer using the button on the tower (not a recommended procedure, but have no choice.
    System: Asus P3C2000 motherboard
    Asus Deluxe 6800 graphics card
    256M of ram
    Win98
    Direct X 7a
    Viewsonic PF790 monitor.
    And couple of bags of Fritos!!!
    Called ASUS, and they called back, but wasn't home. Will try again today July 07 2000. stealth2000@canada.com

    Re: Possible OpenGL related crash

    Just got through to ASUS at 1-510-739-3777 and spoke with Tony at extension 5003.
    Basically he said that its a "strange problem" and should try removing all peripherals, boards, programs. Try the board and video card on its own and see if it works. Introduce each peripheral at a time. If that doesn't work contact your vendor...do you get the feeling that these guys don't know what's going on?
    If someone has a solution...please reply to this problem.

    I miss Half life in openGL too. Mine worked fine till the latest patch. Is it too much to ask to be able to enjoy the rich graphics and enhanced gameplayability opengl brings? Talked to Valve, Sierra, Won.net, ATI, updated everything, formatted and reinstalled it all and posted to a gazillion boards and still no openGL. I have to ask, what did I do in my last life!?!

    Re: Possible OpenGL related crash

    Here is an exerpt from GeForce FAQ. (www.geforcefaq.com) Maybe it will work for other cards. Good luck.

    Q. I can't run any OpenGL programs, but Direct3D programs run fine. How can I fix it?
    Try the following instructions:

    Click Start / Run.

    Type "win.ini" (without quotes) and press OK.

    Search for a line that says "DVA=0" (without quotes).

    Add a semicolon ( before the DVA (The line should now look like this: ";DVA=0" (without quotes))

    Save and close the file

    If you find this causes more problems, just take out the semicolon.

    Note that not everyone has this line, and if there is none you'll have to try another solution.

    Try switching to AGP1X using your BIOS setup or AGP Wizard (more information here). This may help, but will reduce performance slightly.
