So I cannot run RuneScape on OpenGL (that's how HD was before the directx update right?) and I can only run HD using the Software setting. Maybe my graphics card is not installed properly? RuneScape works fine on Ubuntu in OpenGL (I have my hard drive partitioned with Ubuntu and Windows 7) but Windows 7 says I cannot run it.

Graphics card settings?

I used to be able to run RuneScape PERFECTLY in HD back when I had Vista on my computer and before this DirectX update thing.

Not sure what your exact graphics card is, but you don't have the correct driver for it. You need to download it here, and everything should work fine (it should make your whole Windows better, not just RS): http://www.nvidia.co...obal/global.php

You've done it again, doork :thumbsup:

If only Windows was so straight forward as Linux (there was a tab that I clicked to search for uninstalled drivers and it finds them and installs them, does windows? No :thumbsup:)

Actually, Windows 7 usually has Nvidia and ATI drivers built in (maybe not for the newest cards though). They mostly work just as well as the official ones, but often the OpenGL support on them is lacking or completely absent (sneaky way for MS to help give DirectX an "advantage" or OpenGl, I guess?), and also don't have the control panel apps and stuff. I always recommend using the latest compatible driver though, not built in ones. That wasn't your issue though, you simply didn't have a working driver at all, it was just using a generic one. And yeah, it would be nice if Windows had a Driver Installation thing like that, especially in XP, that's painful to find drivers when you're in 640x480 and have no working internet connection to even download any drivers :XD:
