  • please comment the solution please
  • Try deleting your runtime folder. It is in the (hidden) location: c:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Deng Team\Doomsday Engine\runtime

    This will reset the data file settings to the default configuration.

    i did it and it fix the problem but now it saysskh2oug6v816.jpg
    i dunno what to do and it has also something related to steam cuz i saw steam in the details
  • Check out the log file: AppData\Local\Deng Team\Doomsday Engine\runtime\doomsday.out

    If you rename it to "doomsday.txt" you can attach it here on the forums.

    Perhaps in the log file there is some clue as to what the problem could be. You say Doomsday was working for you before? Usually OpenGL errors are resolved by updating your video card drivers and/or rebooting.

    yes it was working before and the opengl problem doesnt happen to me in other games for example half life 1 it has 2 options d3d and opengl when i choose opengl it works fine even in doom and gzdoom and my card is up to date and it has something related to steam as well
