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 and DirectX 8's vsync not working on modern systems.
The game will crash if in-game anti-aliasing is enabled with this fix.[3]
Download a Direct3D8 to Direct3D9 wrapper and cap FPS to 60[3]
  1. Download d3d8to9 wrapper.
  2. Go to the installation folder.
  3. Move the DLL file you downloaded to the installation folder, alongside Dredd.exe.
  4. If you have a monitor with a refresh rate higher than 60hz, see frame rat capping and cap the framerate to 60.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 When running this game without Administrator elevation, activity in %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%, and %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\ (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.
