Somebody Tell Me How to Use GZDoom Properly!
« on: December 31, 2020, 12:51:33 PM »
I keep getting this error "OpenGL driver not accelerated!" after all my efforts to get this to work for the Chex Fan Forum games so I can experience the gameplay the other ZDoom sources won't let me experience (they instead send me into default Doom levels with Chex graphics). I don't know where have I gone wrong, but can somebody instruct me on how to download GZDoom properly? Please respond whenever you can. Thanks!

What kind of graphics card do you have? If you don't know, you can check this by right clicking on "Computer" and clicking properties.

it sounds like unfortunately your graphics card is not good enough to run GzDoom (or you don't have the right drivers installed, or maybe you have a laptop with a 3d accelerator that isn't being used), you might want to try Zandronum ( or LZDoom (

There might be more options, though, depending on your hardware.

Hope that helps,
