Seems to work fine with DXWrapper's Dd7to9 and DxWnd. DXGL sort of works (have to alt-tab to view movies).
DxWnd doesn't work with full-screen in my experience.
You're not supposed to use it in fullscreen. Set it to scale the window to desktop and check "Keep aspect ratio" and "Hide desktop background", if that has scaling artifacts switch desktop resolution to an integer scale factor of the game before starting it, if that's too pixelated set desktop resolution to the game's resolution before starting (or enable "Full bilinear filter", though that has a performance cost). Should also mention the game needs "Compensate Flip emulation" set (if any game has cursor trailing in DxWnd it probably needs this option).
I would probably call DxWnd the second most important compatibility tool (after dgVoodoo) so it's worth learning to use.

Speaking of broken games, Midnight Outlaw: 6 Hours to SunUp, also known as RPM Tuning is essecialy broken on NVIDIA graphic cards. With DGVoodoo2 you can launch it, but most textures will not render correctly (they will be transparent), resulting in an unplayable game. What's worse, this game is STILL SOLD ON STEAM! You can read the reviews there.
Why not post about it on the dgVoodoo forum (that's here on Vogons)?
I also don't see any transparent textures when I try, though I see a lack of reflective textures. WineD3D (4.5) seems to work fine though. DXVK also seems to render the game fine, but crashes on FMVs. Unless I'm missing something (which is pretty likely).
I had some problems with aspect ratio so I had to run the game directly (bypassing the launcher) with "mainSSE2.exe 2880 2160 32 true 3 1" (width, height, color depth, fullscreen, language and sound), in case anyone is wondering how to get the game running in high resolution without dgVoodoo.

Sanitarium is on Steam, but maybe it's a new port? (It's also on Android and iOS these days.)
It's a new port that's probably better to avoid (the sound timing issues in the opening didn't convince me to play it any further).
