RE: Opengl32.dll and Matrox G200
Posted on 2000-03-28
System is a GW2K, 150mhz w/96mb ram. Matrox G200PCI@16mb and Quake2 and Descent run just fine.
I just installed half-life. I got a message saying my video card doesn't support opengl. So I took the opengl32.dll@110KB(from the Q2 folder) and put it in the folder Sierra subfolder called "gldrv" I also added a line in the drvmap.txt file as"opengl32.dll. And it appeared in my choices for configuration in HL. This seems to have worked, sort of. I don't get the original error message but--
1. Sierra says Matrox is supposed to have a minigl driver for HL
2. Matrox says "There is no need for a MiniGL drivers (OpenGL32.dll) HL will use the full ICD included with the drivers" I don't know what ICD!
3 When I close HL I get an illegal operation message on opengl32.dll and my monitor setting is changed from 800x600 to 640x480.
Anyone have experience with HL and the Matrox G200 PCI running together?
