Issues fixed

Game defaults to 24Hz refresh rate on HDMI display

Use a wrapper to force the refresh rate[3]

When using dgVoodoo make sure to move the DLL files from MS folder into the main game, run dgVoodoo configurator and select the game's directory. After that check in Enumerate Refresh Rate in General tab and after that set the resolution in DirectX tab. For the 60Hz refresh rate you must pick the resolution with @59Hz or @60Hz at the end. Be wary that the game's main menu might suffer from some lag when using dgVoodoo.

Enable games to hook ddraw.dll from their own directories[4]

There is a chance that dgVoodoo won't get hooked by the game because of some Windows registry values being hard-coded to a single ddraw.dll location. In this case, download the InstallDDrawCOMRedirection.reg file (direct link) from the "Tools" folder in narzoul's DDrawCompat GitHub repository[5] and run it. This will add registry entries that enable games to hook ddraw.dll from their own directories, instead of using the system's default.
