Widescreen resolution[edit]

Game only runs at 15 FPS by default and is locked to 640x480 fullscreen.
Use dgVoodoo2[citation needed]
  1. Download dgVoodoo 2.
  2. Extract D3DImm.dll and DDraw.dll from the MS/x86 folder to the installation folder, where sb2.exe is located.
  3. Open dgVoodooCpl.exe and go to DirectX and configure your settings.


This removes the frame rate cap and allows the game to be played at modern resolutions. The only downside is that the game is stretched at higher resolutions, but you may be able to fix this:
  1. Open dgVoodooCpl.exe and go to General.
  2. Under Appearance, select Windowed and change the dropdown next to it to "Stretched, keep Aspect Ratio"
