Issues fixed[edit]

Fix low FPS on recent Windows versions[edit]

Due to the fact that this game usese DirectX 7 and DirectX games are emulated when using newer Windows versions, the game is unplayable since the FPS are incredibly low even on a modern computer. To fix this issue DgVoodoo 2 may be used as a workaround and it makes the game playable until the end.
Install dgVoodoo.
