Try to create a trace file with api trace: this one should be possible to fix

im not sure how too sorry


Its quite simple:

- donwload apitrace : http://apitrace.github.io/#download

- place the ddraw.dll file in teh game folder

- run the game (from the patch)


You will find the .trace file in the game folder afterwards. For your problem, the trace file should be short enough and the error easy to spot, so i can probably fix it.

Also post your error.log file please (it will be in the patch folder)

Well, what happens is that you're running the game windowed, and as the documentation states:

"For the Sourcenext version, just start the game once without the patch and use F8 to switch to fullscreen. Then you can start again using the patch"

Please take a look at Sanitarium (GOG Version) when you have time. DXWnd wrapper that comes with the GOG version does not work well for everyone. If you can fix compatibility issues, do high quality upscaling and texture dumping for Sanitarium, it will benefit everyone.

I currently use dgVoodoo with Sanitarium but it requires 8bit reduced color mode to be set via Windows compatibility toolkit. The posts below have some discussion about this:

Please also take a look at "Evil Dead: Hail to the King" (2001) when you have time. That game does not work at all on my Windows 7 pc.
