Issues fixed[edit]

Running with modern systems[edit]

It's possible to make game working using DxWnd or dgVoodoo2.[1]
For DxWnd, download the configuration export here and import it into DxWnd (version 2 and up). The settings work on Windows 10 for me, but your mileage may vary.
Alternatively, if your video card supports DirectX 11 in hardware, you can use dgVoodoo2 to make the game work. Just download the latest version from dege's website, and extract dgVoodooCpl.exe and the DDraw.dll file from the MS subfolder into the installation folder. The main advantage over using DxWnd is that it is more straight forward to use and has a number of options to improve scaling and rendering of the game.
