Essential improvements[edit]

dgVoodoo 2[edit]

Can be used to force higher resolutions, anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering.
Bilinear blit stretch makes the pre-rendered backgrounds less pixelated on higher resolutions.
  1. Download the latest version of dgVoodoo 2 and unpack it (verified working on version 2.54).
  2. Copy all the files from the MS folder.
  3. Paste the files into the game installation folder.
  4. Run dgVoodooCpl.exe and configure the settings to you liking.
  • Game uses DirectX in hardware mode, so the above mentioned improvements should be activated in the DirectX tab.
Increasing HUD and subtitle size[1]
  1. Run dgVoodooCpl.exe and in DirectX tab select your desired resolution.
  2. In game video settings select a resolution that is lower than the one set in dgVoodoo 2. The lower the resolution selected in game, the bigger the HUD and subtitles will be rendered on screen. Don't select a resolution lower than 640x480, because that will reduce the quality of pre-rendered backgrounds.

Issues fixed[edit]

System RAM and swap disk space warning[edit]

When launching the game two warning messages are displayed about 0.0MB of system RAM and 0.0MB of free swap disk space. These can be ignored or the game can be run in Windows 98 compatibility mode to avoid these messages from appearing.
Turning on Windows 98 compatibility mode[1]
  1. Right click the game shortcut or nocturne.exe.
  2. Click Properties, then open the Compatibility tab.
  3. Under Compatibility mode check Run this program in compatibility mode for and select Windows 98/Windows ME.
  4. Click Apply and OK.


This will disable any enhancements set in dgVoodoo 2.

Issues unresolved[edit]

Crackling music in menus[edit]

The music in most menus is crackling, while it plays correctly in some sub-menus (for example, when configuring keys).

Missing legs on NPCs[edit]

Female characters with long skirts have no legs.
