Issues fixed[edit]

Difficulty jumping on modern systems[edit]

When running at high FPS, it becomes difficult to impossible to jump.
This is due to the movement physics being tied to FPS .The game uses a vsync (Enable by default) to limit itself but it does not work in windows 10 because windows 10 has broken vsync in Directx 8.
The game will crash if in-game anti-aliasing is enabled with this fix.[3]
Limit the Framerate to 60FPS[citation needed]
Use dgvoodoo2 Wrapper[citation needed]
  1. Download dgVoodoo2 .
  2. Copy D3D8.DLL from the \MS\x86\ folder to the game install directory.
  3. Set monitor on 60hz

Vsync (Always on) not working on Windows10[edit]

  1. Download dgvoodoo2.
  2. Copy D3D8.DLL from the \MS\x86\ folder to the game install directory.

Notes

The game may become more unstable by using dgVoodoo2.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 When running this game without elevated privileges (Run as administrator option), write operations against a location below %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMDATA%, or %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore on Windows Vista and later (more details).
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/3710/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (3710) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
