Windows 7: Open GL Game Problems

Open GL Game Problems

Everytime I try to play Quake 3 Arena or Counter Strike 1.6, it seems that there are bars that go down my screen. I am about to just go back to Windows Vista to solve the problem, but I was wondering if someone knew a solution?

Install the latest Vista version of your drivers instead, I believe the beta Windows 7 graphic drivers lack proper OpenGL support. I had the same problem with OpenGL games with my ATI x1900 card and using the Vista drivers instead of the ones meant for Windows 7 fixed it. Good luck.

For ATI Radeon graphic cards:
Try to install 9.1 drivers. On my system it works.

Found a solution, couldn't find the original link where I found it though.
It requires using RivaTuner.
You can download RivaTuner here.
Note: I'm a nvidia user so I'm not too sure if this can extend to integrated graphics users and/or ATI.

Go to OpenGL Settings under Driver Settings in the Main Rivatuner window.
Under the Back / depth buffering tab, change the Back buffer flipping mode from "Auto select" to "Block transfer".

Tbh, I have no idea what this does but it got rid of the horizontal lines when running OpenGL games fullscreen.
Let me know if this made a difference for anyone.

Games affected:
  • Doom 3
  • Star Wars JK II Jedi Outcast
  • Star Wars JK Jedi Academy
  • Return to Castle Wolfenstein

Update your video driver and if that doesnt help google openglview. it will check your opengl settings
