Default OpenGL Not Working

I have tried to get some MD2 models today, and when I open the .bat for OpenGL and OpenGL-Windowed, I'm greeted with a white screen. The audio still works, but the white screen is all I get.

I use an x64 Windows 8 computer.
SRB2 is on a USB. The version is 2.1.8.
The .exe works normally.

Can anyone help me with this?

Well, maybe you can use a launcher to start SRB2 with OpenGL. It always works for me, and I have a Windows 7 x32. Aaaand, if that doesn't work, I think Windows 8 doesn't support OpenGL very well. And why do you have SRB2 on a USB?
Did you tried to open it on the Windowed mode?

As a window 8 user, I can confirm windows 8 does in fact support OGL mode. It is more than likely something else wrong with his system, or maybe even the fact that SRB2 is on a USB for him.

I would try using OGL with the folder on your desktop rather than on a USB, and if it still does not work, then maybe someone else with more computer knowledge than me can help.

Actually, it might be windows 8. Some graphics cards are rendered unsupported by W8, and if that's the case, your PC probably uses integrated cards. Which suck.
... I know because I'm in the same position :P

Look up legacy drivers for your graphics card?

Got a little more info. I went to download OpenGL from Softonic and it said that it doesn't support x64 computers. Did I just solve my own problem?

Plus, I have an option to 'update' the driver. Should I go for it?

This is very likely to be a scam. Don't follow through with this.

Yes, but only update your drivers from your graphics card manufacturer's website.
