Issues fixed

Game doesn't start under Windows 10

Update Winmm and nGlide[citation needed]
This fix is related to the GOG.com version and may not work on other versions. It was provided by SFriedt
  1. Download the WinMM fix from here
  2. From the extracted archive, rename winmm.dll to win32.dll and copy all files to the installation folder, replacing existing files
  3. Download a current version of the nGlide wrapper and install it.
  4. Delete the following files from the installation folder, forcing it to use the updated nGlide: 3DfxSpl.dll (and other DLLs starting with 3DfxSpl, if found), glide.dll (and other DLLs starting with glide, if found), SST1INIT.DLL
  5. Run the game using PANDY3.exe or the normal GOG.com starter (which links to the same).

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/243020/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (243020) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
