- Do you have graphic card drivers installed?

- Does your autoexec or whatever config support the desired resolution / hz?

r_mode -1
i dont understand?!
chnage your reoslution.. atleast it helped me :P

QuoteWARNING: could not set the given mode (3)

change ur rmode to -1 and add your costum resolution

seta r_customheight "xxxx"
seta r_customwidth "xxxx"

xxxx = whatever you can/want
he hasn't opened ET once, it's not cause of the rmode -.-
It could be if ingame resolution is bigger then the native resolution. Krayzie68, try lower down the resolution in the config and then try to set it up properly in game.

e: here, I had exact same problem and that's how I fixed it:
just cant quit your addiction can u
nobody can
man im just trying to help other people..
and no, fuchs keeps coming online ;)
Your r_mode doesn't seem to be supported by your graphics card/screen
Ok, Had a chat with him as well. He hasn't even opened ET yet, there's no config, no Profiles folder under ETMAIN.

This should mean, it can't be etconfig/rmode deal.
It's a laptop, if his display or even just GPU doesn't support a 4:3 output this will very much cause the above issue. The Console's clearly failing to set a proper resolution, cycling through r_mode 4 and r_mode 3 and failing to do so every time.

Set it to -1 as well as custom aspect ratio/resolution fitting to his laptop's native resolution and watch the magic happen.
As his laptop got a TFT that will support higher resolutions than 1024x768 (which is the default resolution I think) and thus can interpolate other resolutions than just ones with an aspect ratio of 10:9 or whatever his notebook supports it should not be an issue, but you could be right...

Sometimes computers are just plain weird
800x600 is the default (r_mode 4)


setting mode 4: 800 600 FS
...failed to find an appropriate PIXELFORMAT
...restoring display settings
...WARNING: could not set the given mode (4)

It kept trying to cycle through all the different r_mode 4's, changing the depth to 32bit, 16bit, etc. before finally giving up on r_mode 3

...failed to find an appropriate PIXELFORMAT
...restoring display settings
...WARNING: could not set the given mode (3)

Sometimes, reading the console.. helps. :)
Didn't read the actual error message. I just read what you wrote and wanted to tell him and you that this might not be the problem. So if that was the case he could try something else without wondering why it does not work. Was no offence towards you or anything
Update your graphic drivers.

Google translate to German: Aktualisieren Sie Ihre Grafikkartentreiber
update your grahpics you fat nerd
Resolution problem. What Oxy said
yup, the r_mode
@ Tupac, my graphicdriver are up to stfu

i reinstall all my drivers...same problem
i deinstall all my drivers and install all new...i got still the same problem...

so i need a new graphiccard or what?!
No, you need to stop being ignorant and use the solution people have provided for you in this very journal.
...WARNING: missing Glide installation, assuming no 3Dfx available
...shutting down QGL
----- CL_Shutdown -----
RE_Shutdown( 1 )
GLW_StartOpenGL() - could not load OpenGL subsystem

maybe install the gfx card
Why bother, you have ~20fps anyway
I had that problem too.
The solution is just delete EtPro folder from ET folder, reinstall Etpro file and put the folder again in Et folder, it will work :)
