When I run Viper Racing (you can get a copy here: links to abandonware are forbidden.) patched to 1.2.3 (via 1.2.1, the 1.1 patch won't work with my version ever), it boots, then shows a pop-up window titled "Our Apologies" and "Your video card returned an error. Are your video drivers up to date?"
If you run the game with Compatibility Mode of Win95, it then generates some log files in the C: drive, where it reports:
vid: 0 meg card (reported:0.523438)
vid: using AGP textures
unsupported: 0 megs of vram
So I think it's misdiagnosing my 4GB GTX 980 card (or it's yet another Nvidia driver related problem!).
Can anyone think of a workaround? dgVoodoo's DirectX replacement files don't do anything different for this one.
