MineCraft OPENGL Problem. Can't Play. (Solution?)

  • #1
    Hello everyone.

    I'm getting this problem with minecraft when i do play offline.
    This doesn't happen on my macbookpro.

    PLEASE HELP



    Bad video card drivers!
    -----------------------

    Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
    This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.

    Hi guys, basically, your graphics cads are old. For a start, they're integrated, which is never a good thing.

    I, myself, also have an integrated card, in which I am unable to run Minecraft in the client, yet I am able to run Minecraft in browser.

    If I was you, I would consider investing in a new computer or if you're able too, a new graphics card.

    As for you, what manufacturer is your computer?

    More importantly, what make/model is your computer? Knowing this I might be able to help you.

    To your first post, I have a fine Nvidia graphics card, but I cannot put it in this computer 'cause it's skinny and I didn't realize that pre-purchase.
    Second it's a dell GX520.
    Thanks for the help.

    Ok People. I figured it out.

    I have a laptop with Nvidia GForce 9400M. With this video card Minecraft works.

    But i have another mac mini with an Intel Video Card which supports OpenGL 1.4
    (which is minimum requirement for minecraft)

    But also a Fix PC using the Intel G41 Express Chipset Video Card and Minecraft doesn't work with that either.

    Yet if you look here:

    http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/mid_range_gpus.html

    The Intel G41 Express Chipset is Better than my Nvidia Gforce 9400M.


    Only one conclusion. The game doesn't support intel video cards.

    And this is seen to be true as the other person posting on this and bunch others on the net all have Intel Video Cards.


    So until Notch Fixes the game to work with Intel Video Cards.....

    People with Intel video cards will not be able to play Minecraft.


    Seeing as more than 40% of the market uses Intel video cards.... this problem is pretty unexpected.

    And that's ******** man..... My card isn't old at all.... And its better than my Nvidia GForce 9400M.

    And yet it doesnt work. So what you are saying is Bull ****.

    All you need to check to see if you needa change cards or not is whether it can support OpenGL 1.4
    (minimum for Minecraft)

    It's Notch's fault not ours.

    The ONLY FIX RIGHT NOW for people who have an Intel Graphics Card (or video card same thing)
    is to Play On The Browser.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To check what graphics (or video) card you have.

    -Click Start

    -Right click on "My Computer"

    -Click Properties.

    -Click on the Hardware Tab

    -Click Device Manager

    -The Click "Display Adapters"

    So if our computer displays the same message when we try to play on the browser, we're just SOL?

    Pretty sure. I've been playing around with an Intel Q45/Q43. If I find any solutions, I'll let y'all know.

    I have this configuration:

    Acer Aspire 6930G
    Intel Core 2 Duo P7350 @ 2.00 GHz
    4,00 GB Ram
    Geforce 9600M GS (512 MB DDR2) Driver version 258.96
    Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
    DirectX version 11.0


    I've downloaded the newest drivers for my videocard (According to the scan on the Nvidia website) and redownloaded Java and all that, but still a black screen on login or a white one in Browser.

    But I'm not sure I have a correct OpenGL32.dll in my system folder. Is there anyway to "fix" this? Like repairing OpenGL support with new drivers or am I missing certain key files somewhere?

    I also have problems with other OpenGL related software such as the High Resolution pack for Duke Nukem 3D, which says it can't use OpenGL.

    Hope someone can help :smile.gif:.
    I've been to Japan for a month, your argument is invalid.

    I actually play minecraft on a computer with a not-good-at-all Intel card (945 iirc) with no problems (other than slow framerate, solved by fogging things up). It sure sounds like a driver issue rather than a hardware issue to me.

    Well, i hit the same wall as the rest of you. I'm trying to get it running on Wife®'s computer, and i'm getting the opengl error, and she's on a slim dell workstation w/ an integrated intel gpu.

    I just snagged an old card from another machine (thank **** the old machine is slim as well... and i had it lying around heh... stupid slim systems... :tongue.gif:) and i'm hoping to try that out, but i'd love a work around for this.

    (yea, updated drivers etc... going to try the 'java-pileup' fix tonight and see if that actually does anything for me. I'll try and let ya'll know :smile.gif:
    It's never peanut butter jelly time. Ever.
