then decided to download to start my adventure in this world view that seems fantastic.
I get the problem when I install the version of the site looks on giving:

Well I wanted to know what type of problem and that I use the version of Windows Vista, and have recommended the data to run the game.
If placing the order I would like to link to a client that run on it.

Thanks

You're OpenGL drivers are the problem. Either update them or run the game in software mode (newer versions have a switch to do it for a session: --no-opengl ; you can switch more permanently with the checkbox in the setup dialog).

Hi Esquilo,

:arrow: Well, the OpenGL drivers don't depend on the game. They're depnding on your Pc's graphic card.

So, sorry, I think we can't help you more with OpenGL mode than saying:

Have a look at your graphic card's name.
Go to the manufacturer's website.
Download the latest drivers for Win7 and install them.

Otherwise, if you're ready to play in SDL mode, try changing the TMW's application shortcut properties, by
adding --no-opengl as Jaxad said, giving something like:
"C:\my_programs_path\my_tmw_installation_path\tmw.exe --no-opengl"
(Of course, be sure to adapt the path according to you own configuration.)

Regards.

This happens with my Windows 7 just go to .tmw folder in your user directory , open config.xml , find openGl , and change the value to 0 , then save the text file , thats it.

Or run with the -no-opengl switch.
