Known issues[edit]

  • On modern OS's, the game crashes in No-3D mode.
  • On some systems, the video hangs
  • Without any modifications, the game is isn't easily made portable due to the registry dependencies
  • The debugging flags are disabled, making crash-deterrence difficult otherwise

Essential improvements[edit]

Game doesn't work on any modern OS's[edit]

By default, the game is confirmed NOT to work on Windows XP, 7, 8.1, 10
Workaround 1[1]
The fix is very rough, and takes substantial amount of time to get the game to work again after every playing session
  1. Get the modification on the modder's website
  2. [Recommended] Extract contents to any short-length (with name shorter than 8) directory without any spaces. For example, C:\Glover. Extracting to the installation directory is OK, as long as it is short and space-less
  3. Run Glover and play the game
  4. After you played, delete the files of: glover.log, dgVoodoo.conf and Glover.cfg. Then re-extract the original dgVoodoo.conf and Glover.cfg into the main directory
  5. Repeat the last step after every playing session
