Driver (PC game)

Postby TumeK5 » 2017-9-14 @ 13:51

Hey guys,

So I found a copy of Driver for the PC from a flea market. However, running it on Windows 7 is a pain. First I had to patch the game in order to launch it in the first place. Then, I needed to fix the music by following the steps here. I managed to fix the music, however, the 3D acceleration problem still hasn't been solved. I followed all the steps but now the game won't launch. What's the problem?

Also, why I need the fix is because tires, solid objects and buildings and some water are invisible (as well as the task list from the training mission). Otherwise the game is fine now.

Have you tried copying D3D8.dll from the dgVoodoo 2 distribution's MS folder? That game might've used DirectX 8 and I've found that it fixes texture issues in such games.

Tried, but same result. I actually left it intentionally out last time, but tried now, still won't launch.

EDIT: The game does launch when not using Dxwnd, but the game still has the graphical issues I'm trying to fix with dgVoodoo 2.

FYI, I had a different game working perfectly with dgVoodoo 2 until I tried to help a person do something that required DxWnd. Even after removing DxWnd and making sure that dgVoodoo 2 was back to how it was with the game, the game had graphical problems. I had to reboot the computer to fix it. I guess that DxWnd added some driver hook that couldn't be unloaded until I rebooted. If you haven't rebooted since you last ran DxWnd or removed it, try that.
