Unfortunately, no version, including the newest one, works with the Intel HD3000.
dgVoodoo2 is currently not compatible with this video adapter. At all.
No game or program using DirectX 9 or below will start with it. Either nothing happens, or the program crashes with an error.
It does not depend on the version or bitness of the OS. Installing different versions of the drivers does not change the situation. It also does not depend on the settings of the program itself, including advanced ones.
I've been struggling with this problem for several months now.
This is definitely a bug. It needs to be eliminated.

- Checking out old drivers to see if thing is the same as with AMD drivers: old ones are working with the newest version of dgVoodoo.
This did the trick for the Intel HD 3000, partially.
After installing an older driver available from Intel's site for it, dated from 2012 (newest is from 2015) and designed for Windows 7 and Windows Vista (newest includes 8 & 8.1 support and discards Vista), dgVoodoo started working!
I had to uncheck "Enable specialized shaders" though, otherwise everything was glitchy, as with Gen7 & Gen8).
It even worked with the game I had problems to begin with, and also worked with all the 3DMark's, except for 99, which didn't launch even without dgVoodoo (always the same "DirectX not installed" message).
Unfortunately, this older driver also introduced errors on some of the titles (old DX5/6 games) I had working perfectly on that PC before the driver downgrade, so in the end I just ended up reverting to the newest driver: its the one that gives the least problems, at least for me...

As I said before, the older drivers designed for Vista and Win7 (win7vista_152254.exe/win7vista_64_152254.exe), 184.108.40.20622, dated 1/21/2012, work perfectly fine with DgVoodoo (but has errors in other areas).
Meanwhile, the newer ones designed for Win7, 8 & 8.1 (win32_152824.exe/win64_152824.exe), 220.127.116.1129, dated 6/5/2015... well, you know the rest.🙁 But they're much more robust and compatible than the older ones, specially with old games!
Thank you very much for your efforts! 😀
