In the latest update for No Man’s Sky on PC, a new requirement has been added: OpenGL 4.5 or better! This is part of an effort to reduce some framerate issues that have plagued NMS since its release in 2016. However, there are many different types of graphics cards and this means it’s not always easy to tell which ones will work with your system.
No Man’s Sky has been a controversial release, and many players (including us) have encountered glitches. If you want to launch the game without OPENGL 4.5, we can help! re: No Man’s Sky
If you want to play No Man’s Sky on your laptop but it doesn’t support OpenGL 4.5, this post will show you how to do it.
How can I start No Man’s Sky without having OPENGL 4.5 installed?
From https://github.com/dtrebilco/glintercept/releases/download/1.3.3/GLInterceptx64 1 3 3.exe, download and install GLIntercept «x64» to Program Files on System Drive. Make sure GLIntercept’s installation path is C:Program FilesGLInterceptx64 1 3 3.
Copy the OpenGL32.dll file from the GLIntercept installation folder to the No Man’s Sky binaries folder.
Here’s where you can get the GLIntercept config file: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17900579/gliConfig.ini
It should be placed in the No Man’s Sky binaries folder.
Disable logging and apply opengl extensions to it. After that, update OpenGL to version 4.5.
