As usual templar returns all confused over what ends up to be a seemingly simple problem!

Here it is. Before and by that I mean about a year ago or so! I installed Medal of Honour Allied Assult aka MOHAA - but I guess you knew that - then it worked like breeze no problem and I finished it even! Then came Spearhead. All was well, then came some problems in my PC and I had to format it and what not and so I did! Then after around a year (being now) I felt the urge to test my skills at MOHAA again! And I did! I installed and ran it... but this time it was different... this time I got an error which I have pasted before you like so:

There you have it MOHAA no work! I try on my bro's PC and it works but on mine it seems to have a problem! I don't get it I have Quake installed as well and I know that needs OpenGL as well and that works smoothly, what happened to MOHAA?!?! Do you think it's got some issues with this new build of Windows I installed? The last time I installed it I did it on a different build.

this new build of Windows I installed

LOL. you build windows yourself?

seems as if the problem is the pixelformat. what is this new build of windows you are talking about?

you say you have Quake installed. if by that you mean Quake 1 or 2 then note that these can also run without OpenGL.
to check if OpenGL works correctly try out a little demo. for example:

Yo I live in Pakistan, finding software here that isn't in a wrapper or burned somewhere in a basement or some apartment is like finding a needle in a haystack and it's one hell of a big haystack and a teensy little needle!!

By build I mean the latest version someone apparently burned to disk, the one I bought according to the wrapper is "Windows XP (PRO) 2006"... it's Pakistan what would you expect!

By Quake I'm referring to Quake III Arena and I know that needs OpenGL and anyway I've got a couple of OpenGL demo's on my bro system and they work including the link you supplied. There's OpenGL in the system and it's working fine... but why not MOHAA!!

if you have all the latest drivers and updates on your system, then that's the point where i would contact customer support or look at their website for support:

Hmm I don't know if that's a very wise idea... I bought my copy of MOHAA in a wrapper as well I'll try still...
