Oh, I had this problems with many games which used the Quake 3 engine such as Quake 3, MOHAA< RTCW and JK2. I just simply changed the compatibility mode to Windows 98, that's of course if you are using Windows XP. It simply did the job despite trying tons of nvidia detonator drivers and the opengl patch (which didn't work under Windows XP).

the thing is - it has worked and i dont know whats happened,
it is win 98, the file named as missing is not on the voodoo4 installation disc....

start, run, type "REGEDIT"- without ""
look for:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES/software/microsoft/windows/ current version/ open gl drivers
then remove all keys except RIVATNT key
start, run, type "win.ini" without ""
search for line DVA=0 and insert semi-colan so that it reads " ;DVA=0 " without ""
If the line "DVA=0" is not there, sorry but tuff titty.
