    OpenGL


    Hi all,

    Does anyone know how to get OpenGL for Windows 8 RP? I want to play Minecraft but I get that annoying error message about bad video drivers. I assume that means I don't have OpenGL. Whenever I try to install something for it, it just does nothing. Any ideas?

    They don't work only if you have a Intel graphics card.

    Are you using a NVidia or ATI card instead?

    Ahhh...
    Ignore this, your specs say Intel .

    Right click on the desktop -> screen resolution -> advanced settings

    and you get something like this:

    There you go.

    Oh right, silly me. I'll try that soon as I'm in the car on my iPhone and won't be back for about 3 hours.

    No worries.
    Take your time. And drive carefully, if you're driving.

    It's already midnight here and I go to bed now.

    Till next time.
