glQuake stopped working
Posted on 1999-01-01
I've been running glQuake with Voodoo II for months without problem. Suddenly 3 days ago, it stopped working. The only thing I've done is upgrading McAfee from v3.20 to v4.02. Yet problem persists after I uninstall McAfee. I tried removing the glQuake subdirectory and result is the same.
When I try to start it, it pops up a dialogue saying that I am running for the first time and ask me to be patient for the next 30-60 seconds. Then it switches resolution to what I specified on the command line. And continues the to create the "15 bit reverse palate". Finally it says "Could not initialize GL (wglCreateContext failed). Make sure you in are 65535 color mode, and try running -window." It created a new "15to8.pal" (my command line asks it to -bpp 16) in the glquake subdirectory and nothing else.
Any idea how to solve it?
