It's likely your hardware or driver doesn't support PistonWindow's default OpenGl spec. Just change it to something you can support at the beginning of the example. See for an example.

Making changes to the tutorials

Because most of the tutorials will contain heavy amounts of code, TyOverby developed a markdown pre-processor that takes
files and includes code from the surrounding project. This way you don't need to make a change in the code for the tutorial and then also make the same change in the file; the preprocessor will do that for you!

In order to run the pre-processor, simply invoke

cargo run
from the root directory (not the sub-tutorial directory) and it will rebuild all the markdown files that it knows about.
