Difference between revisions of "International Rally Championship"

From PCGamingWiki, the wiki about fixing PC games
(Issues fixed: Using dgvoodoo2 in my case instead of improving the frame rate makes it worse. With dgvoodoo2 the game runs at 20-30 fps while without dgvoodo it reaches a perfect 60 fps)
