Hello,

I have just downloaded Grim Fandango Remastered from GOG.com,
but when I try to launch the game I get a message that it can't run
because required Open GL features are not available and that
I should make sure that the latest graphics drivers are installed.

I have installed the latest graphics drivers, but I still
get the same message!

Please help.


Ole

P.S. My operating system is Windows 7

What video card do you have?
You'll have to look for the most recent version of the drivers that support OpenGL --
which may not be the "most recent" at all.

Hello Jenny100,

First of all, thank you for answering me so quickly.

I am a novice as far as computers are concerned,
so although I have been searching high and low
I have not been able to find my video card.

How do I find it?

Ole

There are lots of ways to check what video card you have, but this article shows one

another

You can also run dxdiag from the Start Search and check what it lists on the Display tab.

Or run speccy from

The game is very demanding as for the video card - 'your graphics card should support OpenGL 3.3 at a minimum'. So if it says some Open GL features are unavailable that could be bad news as no new drivers could fix it.

Please check if your PC satisfies the requirements: ATI Radeon HD 4650 / NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 / Intel HD 4000 Graphics, or equivalent. If you don't have a video card and use built-in chipset with graphics, then it has to be Intel HD 4000 and nothing less than that.

Wow... that's a minimum of an Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 or Core i7 CPU with the integrated video chipset.

I do appreciate all your recommendations, but it is much to complicated for me,
so I will probably just discard this game and move on to another.

Ole, please don't give up. Have you tried one of Jenny's suggestions on determining what your video card is? From there we can help you figure this out. I've just started playing it and it's well worth the effort!

The easiest is to run DXDIAG and let us know what it says.
