I'm trying to play Harvest Moon: Magical Melody with Dolphin. It is a .gcm file. I can get the game to show up in Dolphin with the banner and all its information, but when I try playing it I get this error:

"Can't create opengl renderer. You might be missing some required opengl extensions, check the logs for more info"
And then the program crashes.

I have the latest version of DirectX. I'm pretty new to this emulator so it might just be a simple problem. Any advice to help me understand it better would be much appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT: My graphics card is:
Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family

No, your graphics card isn't supported so you won't be able to use the OpenGL video plugin and likely won't be able to use the DirectX video plugin either. Your graphics chipset/card is missing key features that Dolphin requires in order to function and run.

So your only choices are upgrade your graphics card, or play it on your Gamecube/Wii...

I remember this one thing that would trick your computer into thinking one graphics card you have, is actually another graphics card, which could theoretically allow you to run the games.
If that doesn't work, you might just want to either look for a new graphics card, a new computer, or wait :p

Intel does have SM 2.0 and even 3.0/4.0, but support for it is very poor through both hardware and drivers, is not sufficient for running most applications properly that utilize these features..

Granted you might possibly be able to get the DirectX plugin working once it is fixed, but don't expect it to perform or look the same as a decent dedicated video card..

If I remember correctly though there might be no hope for Intel chipsets, even NullDC (Dreamcast emulator) has significant issues with Intel chipsets so I wouldn't expect it to work with Dolphin either..
