Well something is wrong with the drivers, so there is the problem and how to fix it can be very specific for the situation. I don't really have any further specific advice.

no the game does not require PhysX but OpenGL. Do what I told you here:

i told you a OpenGL version, its 1.3, i fixed openGL by myself, because the OpenGL on Legacy 10.2 TOTALLY DON'T WORK, they f*cked it up in this version, so, i fixed a OpenGL, its version 1.3

i have Legacy 10.2 currently installed

OpenGL 1.3 is not enough for Penumbra. That's why it crashes.

hmm, well, i guess, i need a new driver, but i prefer official ones, anyway, i will download a OpenGL driver separately, which version Penumbra requires?

there are no OpenGL drivers. Your card must support OpenGL 2.0 add above to play the game. If the program I gave you reported OpenGL 1.3 then you cannot play the game.
