Issues fixed[edit]

Fixing Issues with operating systems newer than Windows XP[edit]

Use dgVoodoo[1]
  1. Download dgVoodoo 2.
  2. Copy dgVoodooSetup.exe, dgVoodooCpl.conf and MS\D3D8.dll from archive to <path-to-game>\Bin\ folder.
  3. Run dgVoodooSetup.exe from <path-to-game>\Bin\ folder.
  4. On General tab select preferred scaling mode.
  5. On DirectX tab select preferred antialiasing, anisotropic filtering, watermark, resolution etc.
  6. Apply and exit dgVoodoo setup.
  7. Run the game.
Enforcing widescreen resolution in dgVoodoo DirectX settings would make image stretched.
