Unconfirmed[edit]

  1. Mace Griffin: Bounty Hunter

  3. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus (uses Vulkan; try NVCP tweak)
  4. Wolfenstein: Youngblood (uses Vulkan; try NVCP tweak)
  5. Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot (uses Vulkan; try NVCP tweak)
  6. Zombie Army 4: Dead War

Unfixable[edit]

  1. Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare - OpenGL
  2. Cloudbuilt - OpenGL
  3. Dragon's Lair 3D: Return to the Lair - OpenGL
  4. Rooms: The Main Building
  5. Silver Grapple - OpenGL
  6. Sonic Forces[Note 2]
  7. The Sims 2[Note 3]

Notes

  1. Trine 2 and Trine 3 have broken "Automatic" refresh rate, so you have to specify the real one in the launcher.
  2. Game doesn't like Special K/3Dmigoto likely due to Denuvo being present in the executable
  3. dgVoodoo can be applied to the game, but forcing a resolution/refresh rate through dgVoodoo breaks the game
