Issues fixed[edit]

Game won't start in Windows 10[edit]

Install DirectPlay
  1. Press Win+R to open Run command, type OptionalFeatures.exe and press Enter.
  2. Expand "Legacy Components".
  3. Make sure DirectPlay is checked.
  4. Click OK to save your changes.
  5. If DirectPlay wasn't installed before, reboot after the installation.

No music during races[edit]

Game music is loaded from the CD, so you need to either mount an image or play with the disc inserted.
Playing from the original disc can cause the game to crash at launch. See fix below

Game crashes at launch (or when starting Adventure Mode)[edit]

This crash is due to the ESCAPE codec used for cutscenes.
Fix cutscenes and intro
  1. Download ToyStory2 Fix
  2. Extract dsound.dll and dsound.ini only to <path-to-game>.
  3. Right click WDWRacing.exe and choose "Properties".
  4. In the compatibility tab, check "Run as administrator" and click on "Change high DPI settings".
  5. Check "Override high DPI scaling behaviour" and select "by Application".
  6. Save parameters and run the game.

Note: using Windows XP SP2 compatibility mode might help on some systems.

Other information[edit]

The game uses ESCAPE video codec, more specifically version ESCAPE 130.
It is possible to watch .rpl cutscenes with RPL Player, however the executable must be run in 16 bit color mode using Windows compatibility options.
