Half Life DOD won't load in openGL or run smooth in software mode NVIDA Quadro4 XGL 750
Half Life has been running fine for 13 years and with the latest update I can't get video to load except crappy software mode. I've verified I have up to date drivers. Help please. I can't even figure out a last resort of reload the game. I tried deleting the EXE and now get a new update error, but can't find where to update. Help!

Valve (in their "infinite wisdom) has REMOVED the Direct3D (D3D) graphics renderer. If, after updating your video drivers, you have problems with the OpenGL renderer, your ONLY OPTION is the Software graphics renderer <YUCK>!

They also removed joystick and game controller support, AS WELL AS EAX/A3D ♥♥♥♥♥♥nel quadraphonic surround-sound support (on a 4 (or more) speaker PC, you will ONLY hear sound from your front two speakers).

Yeah... REALLY NICE so-called "UPADTE", Valve!

P.S. Contrary to some of the arguments that I've had with various people (over in the REAL official Steam forums for DoD), I KNEW that this so-called "update" was coming -> http://steamcommunity.com/app/30/discussions/0/846945579810945742/ .

Could you tell me which half-life to upload and update. Looks like when I updated the DOD format, it gave an error message. I clicked on support it said to delete appdata which I did. Now when I click to play DOD it says half-life needs to be updated. Looks like Half-life was completely deleted, not sure.

So i uninstalled Steam and reinstalled, now I get "opengl video failed. The game will run in software mode," when pushing okay, it now says " Failed to create SDL Window." Any suggestions anyone?

Brilliant I decided to buy the game after playing it years ago on an old steam account, just to find they removed the only working graphics option. Why the hell did they do that, and how can I get my money back?
