Hi, I recently downloaded eduke32.exe and the HRP. I was looking forward to playing duke nukem in high res but I've enountered a problem with the openGL support. Here's the log from eduke32.exe:

Well, what is your video card/GPU?
Chances are you are using some on board Intel gpu chip which is not supported so you won't be able to use the HRP.

My graphics card is the nvidia GeForce FX 5200

Do you have the latest drivers installed for that card?
The log should indicate what card you are using, but it does not which I suspect no driver is installed.
Also you won't be able to run Polyer (the fancy lighting effects) with an old card like that, only the high res textures but expect even that to be slow.

I don't know if I have the latest drivers. What would you recommend I do in order to be able to use the high res pack to its full potential? Thank you for your help.

In simple words, buy a new PC with a decent video card.

Ok, I googled my graphics card and downloaded the most up to date driver for it and now the high res pack works just fine! Thanks again for your help. Looks like i won't have to fork out for a new pc after all!
