For some reason, Minecraft won't run on my near stock (RAM upgraded to 2 gigs from 512MB stock, windows vista stock now win7), it says this: (full error report)


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.

So as you can see, i tried several different videocard drivers, so i think my ancient videocard and Java 8 don't like each other.

And nor does Java 7. So im gonna give up playing MC. This saddens me, as that is one of the rather few things i can enjoy myself with.

=(

...

Well, it seems that MC won't run under ANY version of the driver that bundles catalyst, so i'm gonna try the XP driver that i use that MC used to run on, then find a newer version with a 1/2 decently recent version of openGL.

I could have sworn that Minecraft can run in an software 3d mode? I know that in its very early days I could play MC on even a netbook with some decent speed. Few things to try, but I would look up how to change the default render method the game is trying to use and see if you can switch to something else?

 

In fact, I thought MC supported software rendering, DirectX, as well as OpenGL? Isn't there a selector to choose within the main menu? So if you can't even get it to load up to the initial menu to begin playing, then that is where you have to research where to edit whatever config file it might rely on and see where to manually change the render method to at least get it back to that point.

 

Now it has been a very long time since I messed with MC but I do recall it having such options way back when?

I don't see this menu in the launcher, and i can't get to the game to get to the menus.

Maybe the last version takes more resources for your computer.

 

Try 1.5 or 1.0. It might work but it's very slowly.

 

I have a computer with 2G and I can play Minecraft.

 

Both Old_Alpha 132211 and Old_Alpha 132328 play just fine.

 

Those versions are very basic.

I have a 1.6 celron that played up to 1.6.1 on winXP, so I'm afraid I'm toast.

OK, i tested the oldest alpha available, but alas, t'was fruitless.
