SoF1 crash with new graphics cards

When SoF fails to start with an error message like 'SoF.exe has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down', it's usually caused by the video drivers. SoF can run on many operating systems, like Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Linux + Wine, so the operating system isn't the problem.

Recent AMD (ATI) and NVIDIA graphics card drivers return a GL_EXTENSIONS string that's too long for SoF to handle. It causes SoF to crash when it starts. This happens for a lot of games that are based on the Quake2 engine. Install this modified ref_gl.dll into your SoF1 directory to solve the problem.

SoF league players with Windows Vista or Windows 7 who get black/grey UAC screenshots should play in windowed mode and install this SFL patched ref_gl.dll, which has been provided by CheaterSkeeter and GaLLo.
