Issues fixed[edit]

Windows version crashes[edit]

Use dgVoodoo 2[1]
  1. Download dgVoodoo 2.
  2. Extract the contents of the MS folder into the installation folder.
  3. Run the game normally.

Restore music playback[edit]

_Inmm.dll can be used to fix the lack of game music by patching the EXE to run a special .dll file that emulates Redbook audio.
How to use _inmm.dll[citation needed]
  1. Download the _inmm.dll installer and extract it, then run the installer.
  2. Open your game CD in any application that rips audio CDs, and rip the audio into an easy to find place.
  3. Open _inmm.dll Setup
  4. On the "Method" tab, change the "default" option to DirectShow.
  5. Select the "_inmm.dll" tab, then click "add".
  6. Go to the folder you ripped the game audio into. Then select all of the "track" files (2 through 19).
  7. Select "Save" then go to the folder you installed Destruction Derby 2 in. Then save the ini file.
  8. Close _inmm.dll Setup, then drag your game executable file onto the "_inmmcnf.exe" file itself. This will pop up a message asking if you want to patch the executable. Select "Ok".
