Initial setup problems

Hey guys-- I have read through quite a few topics and have been at this for almost 3 hrs now and nothing seems to work.

I am simply trying to get a tutorial to work… I have started with the HelloWorld tutorial and all I end up with is a window with the JMonkey logo…

here are the errors that I am getting–I have already switched to OpenGL1…

Can anyone help? I thought it might be an issue with my graphics card but I am totally lost…I looked for driver updates…it’s the graphics card that came with my fancy inspiron 1525 :slight_smile:

Thanks! and please excuse the ignorance-- I’m learning :slight_smile:

If you search the forum (the little google widget upper right) for that last bit you will find lots of hits.

When you run, are you setting AA to something other than Disabled in the settings dialog?
