I would like to write more about this since I had this problem for years in the past, until I followed the instructions in 2014 and they worked for me;

Did you read the later post I made? There's a winmm patcher that might be easier:
https://w.atwiki.jp/nectaris/pages/22.html
Assuming it forwards all other winmm events correctly (cdda music and gamepad support are often controlled by winmm) which I haven't had time to test.

For Windows 7 64bit I manually did the modify in mciseq.dll in the Syswow64 folder

Overwriting the system file might not be necessary, it wasn't for Nectaris, I could just place a modified mciseq.dll in the game's directory.

Micro Machines V3 is another game that has the same problem.

Sorry I missed the post. Since my last OS reinstall I didn't tweak with the mciseq file yet, so I tried to put mciseq.dll in the screensavers (with midi included) folder and... it worked, I didn't think about this clever solution (it's true that often games can start with some dll in its folder rather than in windows system itself...) Thank you

About the winmm patcher I don't quite get how it works; I must patch that dll with the exe then put it in the app of choice folder?

You patch the game exe with winm_patcher (drag and drop the game's exe over the patcher) and then place winm_.dll in the game directory.

I have tried with a certain game but it doesn't seem to be working

Maybe the patcher is designed only for nectaris?

If I drag&drop the exe, after I press enter the windows closes and it looks like the exe file has not been touched

But anyway the mciseq.dll "in-folder "solution is very handy and seems working so that is more than enough (at least with the "freeze programs" that I have encountered so far)

Gearhead Garage and NIRA Intense Import Drag Racing should be on this list for Windows 10 64-bit.

I managed to get GHG working after finding a backroads workaround on GOG forums. It's a huge hassle though. I haven't even managed to get NIRA to work, but some people apparently have, and the folks with that information were last online a long while ago.

It needs 1.4 patch (as a matter of fact, this is already needed when running the game on Win98) + ACT custom fix + dgvoodoo2.

Maybe it needs something else under Win10. Did you try ATF Gold and FA?

About win 7:
Unreal Tournament - "software rendering" setting makes the game very dark and immune to "brightness" setting. other renderers cause high input lag making the game unplayable/unenjoyable.
Worms Armageddon - weird graphics issue causing colors to flip in a completely unacceptable way making most details unreadable and the whole playing experience at least unpleasant (usually leading to a crash btw).

No matter what you call real

Unreal Tournament software rendering lag is fixable by increasing the resolution in the ini file. High res makes the game brighter. Also other renderers' lag is fixed by setting a higher res.

That game and ATF Gold needs a Nocd patch as Jane's FA one
Also ATF Gold Runs well with Dgvoodoo2, and recently i saw that FA is finally doing well with the latest patch and going fullscreen with little to no changes using dgvoodoo2, like resolution.

I have an original copy of the obscure Judge Dredd for MS-DOS and have been trying to run it for a long time, but without success.
I can get to the main screen, but after pressing START the screen only flashes momentarily and returns to the same screen, it does not start the game.
I checked almost everything possible to change and searched the internet about this game, the documents of that game are non-existent, the only additional information I found is the command SET DOS16M =: 4M but that did not solve it.
CDrom's PATH and config.sys with memory management are configured correctly.
I tried an ISO from the internet and the same problem occurs.
In DOSBox it works but it is not the experience that anyone who spends a fortune on old hardware wants to have, mainly of sound that is the differential of this game and in the emulator it was not good.
This is my only DOS game that I can't play in real DOS, has anyone encountered this type of problem, do you have any suggestions?

Totally agree with you, I'm baffled for still not finding even their entries at the main fixed exes sites. At least WinCDEmu is a great time saver and both games work fine with it.
