Re: Mouse issue in Grand Touring

in Windows
Decided to do some testing since I wanted to know if there's any mouse agnostic ways of setting polling rate and I ran into this: https://github.com/LordOfMice/hidusbf It installs a driver/service with no clear uninstall instructions... So yeah, not recommended. But it did allow me to test a 31hz …

I tried running it a few minutes and couldn't get it to crash. Does Event Viewer show any events at the same time as the crash?

Re: Mouse issue in Grand Touring

I noticed that too. I suspect it isn't coded to even handle 125hz mice, Windows 9x is apparently limited to 40hz. I don't know any software workaround for mouse polling rate issues.

Not any specific things, but some things to try: 1) Make sure you're using dgVoodoo (check if the watermark shows), I've seen native ddraw cause crashes in other games. 2) Run in compatibility mode for Windows 98 (or if you know how to use compatibility administrator, enable just the EmulateHeap fix …

I did download it and test it, and it definitely has the mouse polling issue I mentioned. I mean it is possible you have another unrelated issue with the exact same symptoms, but I sort of doubt it. Check that Logitech actually properly sets the mouse polling rate to 125hz (for example https:// …

Check under "%LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Take 2 Interactive\Frog City\Trade Empires" that you don't have a TradeEmpires.ini there with SoftwareDevice set to 1.

Re: Trade empires

Not missing files then. So a few minutes of experimentation later reveals that SoftwareDevice=1 in TradeEmpires.ini makes the game look as your screenshot. It's not a default option, so I have no idea why you would have it set, but change it back to 0.

Trade Empires_2022_01_18_11_18_37_706.jpg Works fine here. Seems to be a "you" problem. If it has the same issue without dgVoodoo, I would assume a bad copy of the game. But as said above, it's a "you" problem, you need to eliminate a lot of variables yourself, and if you want us to help, provide a …
