Crankyhobo Posted October 12, 2007 Report Share Posted October 12, 2007 (edited) Ive been trying to play some old games and having some issues. I installed Call of Duty for some nostalgia multiplayer fragging, but it wouldnt run with the error message "failed to find an appropriate pixelformat". So... * tried changing windows screen resolutions and bit depths * tried compatability mode for XP * tried command line resolution size * tried it on my brothers computer (also vista - runs no problems) ... then gave up and installed call of duty 2 instead which worked fine, as does all other newer games. So a bit later i installed Homeworld 2 and had a similar error message about pixel depth. Both of these games seem to be having trouble running OpenGL. My drivers were 165.01 that came from ASUS support site for my specific laptop model. So interestingly, i completely uninstalled the drivers and Vista defaulted back to ForceWare 97.54 and both Homeworld and CoD work (although Homeworld has a warning about detecting outdated drivers). I am downloading 163.75 and 163.69 for Vista 32 now and hopefully that will solve the issue *fingers crossed*.
