Future Cop L.A.P.D. (Windows Popups not working, Fullscreen issues)

Postby DCX6723 » 2017-3-01 @ 23:49

The game runs very well with dgVoodoo (latest stable, mouse cursor seems better in WIP version) however, this is completely not possible to :
- Edit sound/controller options, the new windows popups can't be launched in Escape menu
- At startup, an alt+enter switch is required, may also be required when going in-game according to the game res (not sure at 100% for this one)
- Mouse is slow in menu (although movement clarity is enhanced in latest WIP)

Which Windows version are you using? The game works flawless for me without the need for dgVoodoo in Windows 7 64. I did have to use the replacement installer found on this website:

I also used the Windows 98 compatibility mode for the exe. All option screens, startup, mouse, etc. works perfect.

Thanks for the replie ;)

Well Windows 7 is the latest OS to support "natively" the game with W98 option, I don't remember being able to play it on Windows 8 also.
But huge thanks for the tip, mixing W98 mode + dgvoodoo2 fix a lot of issues on Windows 10 including the window popup and the music is properly played, also graphics are native !

Thanks again ;)
However the game only run in English edition, my french CD isn't compatible at all, the game crashs after intro no matter what but I patched the US release with french audio easily.
