How to Fix OpenGL?

If you take this error message:

  • We detected a crash during game startup. Please make sure that you are using the latest drivers for your graphics card. This problem can also be caused by mods. In an attempt to fix this problem, the graphics settings have been reduced to an absolute minimum and your mods have been disabled.


  • Error creating shader: File does not exist: “DiXGamesXAvorionXbinXdataXshadersXtext.vert” Your hardware might not meet the minimum requirements for the game. You need a graphics device that supports OpenGL 3.0. If you have such a device, try updating your graphics drivers.

Please follow the steps:

First Step

You can not download OpenGL. OpenGL is not software. Install drivers from your GPU manufacturer – that’s how you get OpenGL. If your GPU doesn’t support OpenGL 4.6 then you need to upgrade your GPU.

This page provides links to both general release drivers that support OpenGL 4.6, and developer beta drivers that support upcoming OpenGL features.

Release Driver Downloads

OpenGL 4.6 support is available for Windows and Linux in our general release drivers available here:



Second Step

  • Install the NVIDIA even If you have updated already.
  • And then:
  1. Manage 3D settings
  2. Program Settings
  3. Select a program to customize
  4. Add Avorion.exe
  5. Select High-Performance
  6. OpenGL rendering GPU: GeForce 940MX

It is done!!!
