I am facing stuttering issues with some games under Windows 98 SE. Specifically facing issues with CD audio based games such as Midtown Madness, FireFight. The games load fine, CD music plays perfectly, but while playing, noticing visual stutters. First I thought it was my graphics drivers (Fx5600). Hence installed an older version of the driver (45.23) for my card. Still facing the same issue despite trying several older versions. Have installed the Vxd drivers for my SB live (SB0100) from Phil's site.
I am mounting the ISO image using daemon tools and running the game this way. Didn't face the stuttering issue with games which don't rely on CD audio such as Mig Alley, Road Rash, Star Wars Racer, etc. Please let me know if any one else is facing the same issue? Also any thoughts if it could be related to SB Live drivers or Daemon tools? Thank you!!
