Issues fixed[edit]

Installing on 64-bit versions of Windows[edit]

Installing Cube Hopper in a 64-bit Windows environment[citation needed]
  1. Need the following software: UniExtract .
  2. Open UniExtract and extract the following file from the 3D Cube Hopper CD-ROM: "_SETUP.1"
  3. Extract its contents to the Desktop (or other location of user's choice).
  4. Open the folder that was extracted and find the Cube Hopper contents.
  5. Backup once from the current dirctory (where the game files are) and rename the folder to “Cube Hopper“ (easier identification).

Optimize game performance/resolution[edit]

Optimize game performance/resolution[citation needed]
  1. Download dgVoodoo2.
  2. Extract the following files from “dgVoodoo2”: “dgVoodooSetup.exe”; from the “MS” folder: “d3dImm.dll” and “ddraw.dll” and extract these files to the root of the Cube Hopper folder.
  3. Launch “dgVoodooSetup.exe” and click on the “DirectX” tab; make sure that the Video Card is on “dgVoodoo2 Virtual 3D Card”. Click “Apply” and then “OK” to exit.
  4. Then open the “3DCube.ini” with Notepad (or equivalent) and edit the following lines: Resolution: change the default resolution to the default desktop resolution (suggested for best experience). For example: {Resolution=1680x1050x8} instead of: {Resolution=320x280x8}. Then change the FullPosition varible. Example: {FullPosition=0,0,1680,1050} instead of {FullPosition=0,0,640,480}. Note: If Cube Hopper becomes less than desired playability (ex: shuddering/tearing of screen), then the resolution will have to be lowered. May have to experiment to achieve desired performance/visual ratio.
