When I went to try out Treadmarks, this is the message I received.

can not initialize acceptable OpenGL rendering content

This appeared after the game tried to start.. with music ... lol.

Would appreciate any assist/advice that will resolve this problem.

This message came up on me when I had not got my drivers installed.

Most problems that occur when starting Treadmarks are caused by video problems. If you have a modern video card you can correct this by visiting the website of your vidcard vendor and downloading and installing their most recent drivers

Hi Debby, I'm one of the developers at LDA Games.

The problem is almost certainly your graphics drivers. Do you know what kind of graphics card you have? If so, post it here and I can point you to what you need to install.

If not, there's a simple way you can find out. Click on the 'Start' button, then 'Run'. Type 'dxdiag' and hit Enter. A new windows will pop up with a bunch of tabs along the top, click on the one that says 'Display'. In the top-left of this tab is a section called 'Device' which has the name of your card.

While we're at it, which version of Windows do you use?
