Getting old Windows games working.

Moto Racer freezes when starting race

Postby clueless1 » 2017-7-13 @ 02:26

With Voodoo2 SLI. I already applied the 3.22 patch which supposedly fixes Voodoo2 crashes. Prior to the patch, it would freeze in the menus, now after applying the patch the menus work fine, it only freezes when I hit Start to start the race. If I use the -OnlyPrimaryDisplay switch to force my Matrox G100, it works fine. I've tried other switches, but no luck so far. Also tried disabling SLI in the driver, that didn't help. Using the latest official Voodoo2 Win98 driver.

edit: this is weird. The game works great using the Matrox G100. Some stuff (shadows) does not look like it should, but overall it looks better than expected considering it's a G100. I wonder why it freezes with the Voodoo2? Using Patch 3.22 which supposedly fixes all issues with Voodoo2. :-/

@Davros - thanks.

Any driver recommendations? My cards are from Creative Labs and are matched. Currently using latest reference driver (3.02.02). I could try official Creative drivers (which are older than what I'm using) or I could go with one of many versions of FastVoodoo2. Any suggestions from anyone?

Moto racer is a d3d game and glide doesn't have a native version as it's only supported through directx
Maybe this link will help?

Thanks for the responses. Right now everything else runs great and I don't feel like experimenting with driver versions for one game, especially since it runs well on the Matrox G100. I'll leave it be. :)
