Very big problem - project delayed

Hello there. I am not in a good mood realy. But here is the problem. As I alredy posted, I moved to Windows 7. Everything works fine until I started the new project. The problem is: that for the current graphical card (radeon x550, my geforce 8500gt is on guarantie for like 3 - 4 weeks alredy), the drivers for windows 7, don't support OpenGL! They decided that they wont make drivers for Win 7 for so old cards. That means I have to wait for my card to be repaired. And it is realy taking long. It hasn't been a problem till now ( i don't play much games ) but now that I need it to be able to make games in openGL.... welll that is a whole new story. I will call the shop tomorrow and drangle a bit because they told me it will take 1 week ( funny huh ). But I don't want to install back Windows XP. But if it won't work with the new card, well then I will.

That is all for now. Maybe I will make a small SDL game in a day or two if I don't get the card to this weekend. 

Funny picture.



  1. well, you can't really expect various drivers work on yet unreleased OS like Win7. I'd wait for the full version next time, before planning on fully migrating there :)

  2. Well now everything works great. I am realy impresed with Windows 7. I was a big Vista hater if yo want to know :D
