If you don't have a 3D

If you don't have a 3D accelerated video card driver installed it will say this.

You should see if your card has an updated driver from the manufacturer.

???

It worked for me this morning for about an hour. Then I logged off a server and not it stopped working. Rebooting and updating is not doing anything right now.

edit: still not working. Logged onto the WoM reguarly and it seems there are some people that have it working. Looks like mostly people with Windows XP are having problems with the Pixel Acceleration error.

If you get this error, update your drivers

If you still get it, get a new video card.

I have the same problem on my other computer, which is why I'll be getting a new NVIDIA video card soon.

Guess what?

WoM works sometimes on my computer for about an hour and if I go to five different servers and click out of WoM and try to log back in, I can't. So I don't think that the issue of WoM or the Drivers. Perhaps it is Minecraft itself? I am just guessing here.

I made it work for me in one step. Just run it as Administrator. Right-click the icon and click "Run as Administrator". It should work.

Hint for windows

Try checking your Internet connection if it not connecting it might help some internet is too slow it won't load minecraft or if your comp is slow then that might cause it to not work I was on really fast internet but bad comp and It wouldn't let me play online

Hope I helped from Lesscoolroy
