I can't get Chronicles of Ridick to run on my 7800GTX 77.2 driver.

I get a runtime error and "this application require Open Gl 3.0 to run!


I have reinstalled it but get the same! :mad:

I'd guess that it's a driver issue. You really need to let us know what hardware and software you are running if we are to be able to help you.

It works just fine for me. Make sure you patch it to 1.1 before trying to run recent drivers.

Just make sure you get the right patch, there's the US patch and the European patch :)

Thanks for the help! -I got it running in the end by uninstalling and re patching it! I downloaded the patch again so maybe the first one was corrupt!

THis game looks bloody great on my 7800GTX but I find at max detail soft shadows still make it almost unplayable!

Yeah,in this article (http://www.guru3d.com/article/Videocards/229/21/) here, even with a A64 4000+ and the 7800GTX, resolutions above 1024x768 aren't recommended when enabling PS 2.0++ :)
