When I try to play DOOM 3 (BFG edition) I encounter this window:



I don't know why, but "GL_ARB_draw_elements_base_vertex" is apparently not available. I have verified my game cache twice already, and reinstalled once. These attempts haven't fixed anything.

    Probably incompatible GPU. Check the games OpenGL version requirement and then check your GPU OpenGL level support.

    I don't understand what you are saying.

    The system requirements don't contain anything referencing OpenGL

    Check this instruction out it might help.

    "You can check if your system meets minimum requirements for running Doom 3 BFG by running a test on the following link. Doom 3 BFG is in the dropdown box to test "

    Can You Run it (Search for Doom 3)
    The instructions you linked do not help, as there is no folders in the "my games" folder.

    The "Can You Run It" website tells me I can't run Doom 3. However, it says the same about Warface and Skyrim. I can launch both of these titles (and play them with around 13-20 frames), but not Doom 3 for some reason...

    Thats the thing about can you run it. sometimes it says no even though you can barely run it. 13-20 frames is not playable as the framerates are too low to be called smooth. Sometimes can you run it says you cant run a game because of certain technical restrictions though - an old shader version of your GPU or a not supported OpenGL version can be considered "cant run". The error you get is linked to OpenGL so its most likely that your graphics card is too old. Please post your system specs here.
