I am trying to get Arthur's Knights: Tales of Chivalry to run with dgvoodoo. The reason for my attempt is that someone with Windows 10 informed me that with dgvoodoo and the official patch for the game, it runs almost perfectly. This has been a notoriously difficult game to run even in its supported native environment and the only way I have been able to run it previously was with Virtual PC on my Windows 7 Home computer with Windows 98SE as the guest; it also involved enabling hardware virtualization in the BIOS. But I digress. 😀
Arthur's Knights uses DirectX 7. I chose the DirectX tab in dgvoodoo and also chose 3D accelerated video card. I left everything else alone (which is what the person mentioned above does).
I have installed Arthur's Knights and applied the patch. When I try to run the game through dgvoodoo, I can get as far as the main screen where you start a new game. After I select a new player and try to start the game proper, I get a black screen with an exe file has stopped working message. I am running Windows 7 Pro and my video card is a GeForce GT 730.
I would appreciate any advice/suggestions that anyone might have. Dgvoodoo looks like a great program, and I can't believe that I hadn't heard about it up until now.
