Hi,

I have an old Dell DIMENSION 8300, Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4CPU 2.60GHz 2.59GHz, & 1.00GB of RAM that I had to reformat the other day. I've gotten almost everything back to normal but I went to open the Future Pinball application and load a game and it gave me..."Future Pinball detected your open GL acceleration is running in software mode. NVIDIA and ATI only support hardware acceleration. Change the desktop color depth". I'm assuming this may have something to do with video drivers because the game seemed to work fine before the reformat. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

As you yourself suggested, it may very well be the Video Card Drivers. Please try downloading them from the Manufacturers website. Let us know if you need more assistance or if this works!

Hi S1l3nced,

Yeah, you were right. I seemed to answer my own question. I went to NVIDIA's download page and found the driver for my graphics card and downloaded. I tried out a table on FP and it seemed to work. I will go ahead and mark as solved then.

Thanks!
