DON'T DELETE OPENGL32.DLL from windows\system!!!

Do delete it from quake2's folder, or anywhere else you installed the D3D wrapper, but the windows one in the system folder MUST be there!

I have already messaged Ant about this.

Just hope he wakes up soon and fixes it before 5000 people who don't do the forums read it, and have no hope of figuring it out http://forums.gagames.com/forums/wink.gif

Ah shaddup http://forums.gagames.com/forums/smile.gif It was info I had from Matrox with the beta ICD :P The problem I was getting confused with was that GLDirect overwrites this file and often (certainly in my case) when you uninstall it it doesn't replace it with the default windows one as it should do and you are basuically screwed. Hey I was updating the news at 3:30AM yet again http://forums.gagames.com/forums/wink.gif

While we are discussing 3:30 am posts:

One more correction Ant - to disable Vsync, you want to add a string value not a key...

I doubt many people will have a problem cause you can't assign a value to a key anyway, but just thought I'd throw that out there.
