Illarion and Windows Vista

The Illarion Client uses openGL for graphics support. Same for the map editor.

Microsoft has discontinued support for the free openGL in Windows Vista. The graphics drivers developed by Microsoft and included with Windows Vista do not support openGL at all or they try to emulate it using DirectX. All openGL applications, including Illarion, will not run on Vista or will be much slower than on XP.

If you want to run Illarion on Windows Vista you need better graphics drivers from the manufacturer of your graphics card that restore decent support for openGL. I'd recommend not running Vista until there is support for most open standards.

If noone minds me posting, otherwise just delete this or what ever:

If you still have the install disk to xp or such, you could try using MS Virtual pc, it's now free, and the currently still-in-beta 2007 version is said to work on Vista too.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtualpc/default.mspx

I have tried it with windows 95, though my lack of a windows 95 installation disk kinda held me back, but it did start the whole basic stuff, to the part where I needed a win95 installation disk.

I *think* it should work.

Could you perhaps right click the client, save as and save it to your desktop. Then right click the client and choose compatibility and click on WinXP?

Vista hat keine Unterstützung für OpenGL mehr. Soweit ich weis kann es keine OpenGL Treiber für Vista geben die so schnell arbeiten wie der Illarion Client es erfordert.

Bis jetzt ist keine Methode bekannt wie man auf Vista Illarion zum laufen bekommt.

Ersten Post here lesen: Wenn der Hersteller Deiner Grafikkarte vernünftige Treiber mit openGL liefert, dann klappt es. Die von Micro$oft haben keine echte openGL Unterstützung, da ist es reine Glückssache.

Außerdem schaltet Vista bei Verwendung von echter openGL Unterstützung seine tollen neuen Grafikeffekte auf dem Desktop ab, was auch immer die sein mögen.

Nvidiakarten mit dem neusten Treiber WHQL v.158.24 , also damit würde Illarion unter Vista auch ohne OpenGl flüßig laufen .

Probably a useless post, but Illarion runs fine under Vista for me. Smooth and all that.

Illarion is running perfectly on my Vista laptop. Maybe it is just the graphics card I am using though.

Same though I do have up to date Nvidia drivers, though I do get some odd lag from time to time and the hand icon turns into a normal pointer during the lag period.

@Borine

That's the first sentence of this thread and will probably solve your problem.

Graphic card = the thing with the metal and plastic wires attached to the rest of your pc/laptop inside of it, the physical THING that processes the operations necessary to display graphics

graphic drivers = SOFTWARE, stuff you can easily download (if available) and install to better the performance of your graphic card (and perhaps even be able to run Illarion again)

Find out who manufactured your graphic card, and the type of it, then visit the manufacturers website and check for the latest drivers (software) for your type of graphiccard.

You can find out which graphic card you have by typing "dxdiag" in the "run" command line in the start menu.

If you got that, google should help you to find a website to get the drivers from.

Hallo Leute,
Ich habe grade mit einem "Fachmann" gesprochen.
Er sagt, das neue Windoof7 solle OpenGL unterstützen.
Weiss jemand ob das stimmt ?

Re: Illarion and Windows Vista

Soweit ich weiß unterstützt Windows 7 - genau wie Vista - "von Haus aus" kein Open GL.
Microsoft verhält sich da zwar uneinsichtig, aber konsequent. :?
Es kann jedoch weiterhin per Treiberupdate "nachgerüstet" werden, sofern der Grafikkarten-Hersteller dies anbietet.

Welcome, can you post the error log file from your documents Illarion folder? Also, make sure your java is up to date and firewall not blocking java until someone else comes along that can help?

Re: Illarion and Windows Vista

Hallo Elfe!


Wie Achae ja schon gefragt hast kannst du etwas genauer werden?

Ich kann dir da selber gerade nicht ganz folgen. Hast du die Datei auch schon versucht zu speichern und/oder gleich so zu öffnen?

Ist Java auf deinem Rechner installiert?

Re: Illarion and Windows Vista

Something is wrong with your internet connection.

Did you change/install a new firewall, antivirus application? Did you unplug your networking cable? Did you update Java?

Re: Illarion and Windows Vista

Unfortunately no,or i would have had a culprit,i was running java 7 for the past 3 week with no troubles.
But after the crashes started i uninstalled it and installed the supported java 6 but the problem remains the same.
Seems the character is able to stand around and chat,but as soon as i move around too much it occurs.

here is the latest error report.
