Hi, i'm new here and they have some idea if they can make this game compatible with dgvoodoo2?

Since it does not start in any modern windows, […] and uses directx7.

I don't know if the exe works properly, can check that?

Thanks

Hi!

Sorry about editing your post, but please don't post any warez stuff here.

Anyway, this game just crashes silently right at startup (tested on Win10).
I don't know if it could be patched somehow and run through dgVoodoo. Would be nice though.

Hey! Now I understand how to use the forum, thanks.

Crashes with XP too, only working on win 95-98 systems, PCem works with drivers win95-98, this game uses Directx 5.

Hi! I found this fix nocd crack from a russian forum, this one works with Modern Windows, but idk why reproduce a silent crash at loading a game or question.

Works with DGVoodoo2 and reproduces crash at loading something into game

U can check that? Anyway asked to the original author about the problem

I gave it a quick go but it didn't crash for me. Which makes me say that applying Fault Tolerant heap compatibility option (part of Win98 compatibility mode) may worth a try.

Here in Windows 10 64bits, it doesn't directly open the game in Windows 98 mode, but without the compatibility mode or WIN XP SP3 works. I get silent crash when loads a question or something when I'm playing in a round.

Yes, that's what I tried too but the game didn't crash for me. I think it does it occasionally. Do you get crashes in Win98 compatibility mode?

Hmm no, Win98 compatibility mode not works for me on Win10 without and with dgvoodoo2.

Only works without compatibility or XP SP3 and causes crashes sometimes the game.
