GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem
just bought the wolfenstein pack on steam... thought i play the multiplayer mode. I tweeked some of the graphic settings so it can fit my screen size (1920x1080) but i placed it to something bigger and that made the game crash so everytime i launch it i get this screen:

Delete the config and a new one will be generated next time you launch the game. Then adjust your settings carefully.
>M@tEo$< Jan 13 @ 11:17am 
Or edit the line r_mode to 4, so you can keep all the other settings :)
Burgers-13 (Banned) Jan 13 @ 11:21am 
ive tried both those methos just now.. no good
>M@tEo$< Jan 13 @ 11:50am 
Are your drivers up to date?
Burgers-13 (Banned) Jan 13 @ 12:01pm 
hmm idk.. how do i check?
>M@tEo$< Jan 15 @ 9:58am 
What graphic card do you have?
Burgers-13 (Banned) Jan 15 @ 11:59am 
geforce gt 640
>M@tEo$< Jan 16 @ 12:09pm 
You can check for updated drivers there:

You can delete all the files in the RTCW folder then reinstall the game
>M@tEo$< Jan 28 @ 11:27am 
He did not answer since the 16th, probably fixed?

Beyond the usual OpenGL issue due to the resolution cvar value, there were failed software detections, a updated driver probably fixed them
Burgers-13 (Banned) Jan 28 @ 1:05pm 
sry ive been busy.. its actually "she" but anyways i deleted the game then reinstalled it. it didnt work, ive also tried a old copy of the game pirated and tried top copy the files but didnt work i keep getting the same error.

and my graphics card drivers are up to date as well thanx for that suggestion tho
Buck Jan 30 @ 5:10pm 
It's telling you flat out that it can't set that mode. A different driver revision (newer or older) might fix it, but try a different resolution, or try windowed instead.
Burgers-13 (Banned) Jan 30 @ 6:35pm 
I wont let me launch multi player mode so i cant change the rez in the game.. i also tried going thru single player and it did the same thing.. (single player works tho)

ill try a older version of my driver
>M@tEo$< Jan 31 @ 1:45pm 
Could you browse:
Steam\SteamApps\common\return to castle wolfenstein\Main

Open the file wolfconfig_mp.cfg, look for the line r_mode, and set it to 4?

See if it works afterward
Burgers-13 (Banned) Feb 6 @ 8:37am 
sigh.. nothing is working.. even that i had it at 10 then switched it to 4 save it. and launched it.. nada. im just going to give this up and move on. thanx for both yoru help :)
