I count on your help here. It's about the Adidas Power Soccer game. An attempt to launch this game ends with a black screen and the title freezes. I started the game natively, through dgvoodoo 2, through dxwnd, and even through nglide (the game uses Glide) and nothing helped. Do you have any ideas? Apparently, the game is very complicated from the technical side and it is impossible to fix it to work on modern computers (apparently the game worked badly even on computers that existed at the time when the game was released)

As if someone else interested it, the problem was resolved. The game must be started via dxwnd, but you need to select the "Emulate Registry" and "Override Registry" options in the Registry tab, and paste the following into the Virtual Registry field:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ App Paths \ APSS.EXE]
"Path" = "\{path}"
@ = '\{path}"

"APSFullGame" = "\{path}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Psygnosis \ adidas Power Soccer]
"Datapath" = "\{path}"
"MoviePath" = "\{path}"
"CommEPath" = "\{path}"
"CommFPath" = "\{path}"
"CommDPath" = "\{path}"
"CrowdPath" = "\{path}"
"SavePath" = "\{path}"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Psygnosis \ adidas Power Soccer \ 6.0]
Of course, in "path" you have to enter the path where you installed the game
In the Sound tab, select "Virtual CD Audio", in the I / O tab, select "Fake CD" and select a free letter under which the CD drive from DxWnd should be, and then in the Compat tab. check the "Handle Exceptions" option. Then you need to download this file - https://sourceforge.net/p/dxwnd/discussion/ge … ment/dsound.dll and put it in the folder with the installed game. Yes, I know it's a forum dedicated to dgvoodoo, but I don't know how to run the game under this wrapper and I don't have much idea for it
