I am having a problem running Skulltag in opengl mode. I used to play it all the time in opengl, and after a period of not playing found that it would no longer run. It will simply do a diagnostics load and freeze at the point where it reads "UDP Initialized." I did a google search and it turned up nothing useful. If anyone could help me with this issue it would be greatly appreciated. :)

Posting more about your hardware and drivers might be helpful.

That is the computer I am running on. I believe all the drivers are the default, as I have no reason to change any of them.

Hmm... the GeForce Go 6100 Go is a bit on the low end, but that's not what caught my attention:



Video adapter
NVIDIA® GeForce™ Go 6100
Video RAM
287MB Total Available Graphics Memory



287 MB is an ass-backwards amount if there ever was one. Let me guess...it's a shared memory model, right? "Dynamically allocated", no less.

Those memory videocards without dedicated VRAM or at least a fixed/settable amount of shared memory often ran into troubles with their driver's/OS "dynamic allocation" policy, I don't get why they didn't simply allow you to fix them to a specific amount and be done with it. The result is that they might run certain games fine some of the time, and run out of memory on others or display inconsistent behavior, depending on the whims of the driver/OS at that point.

I'd say try updating it with the latest nVidia drivers (even if they are classed as "legacy" by now) or with the latest driver Compaq themselves issued for this specific model, as they may be customized. You might also try one of the Omega Drivers for mobile/integrated GPUs such as yours.
