Issues fixed[edit]

Game defaults to 24Hz refresh rate on HDMI display[edit]

Use a wrapper to force the refresh rate[1]

When using dgVoodoo make sure to move the DLL files from MS folder into the main game, run dgVoodoo configurator and select the game's directory. After that check in Enumerate Refresh Rate in General tab and after that set the resolution in DirectX tab. For the 60Hz refresh rate you must pick the resolution with @59Hz at the end.
