Hello,
The game is "Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis". Due to limitation in hardware, I cannot test extensively. Here are what I observed:
To play, copy d3d8.dll, dgvoodoo.conf and d3dcompiler_43.dll to game folder.

A. latop, windows10, no problem with dgvoodoo2.54~2.62(WIP65).
B. pc, windows7, *use hdmi-dsub converter to connect monitor.
B1. no problem with dgvoodoo2.54 and WIP41.
B2. if using dgvoodoo2.55 or WIP42 or later version, the island map won't show and it's empty. (See screenshots)
B3. no problem if not using dgvoodoo2. Though sometimes game may crash randomly.
C. use the laptop(A) and a mini-dp to dsub converter to connect the monitor(B), no problem with all versions.

Though it may seem this could be a hw specific problem, I would like to know if the changes between WIP41-42 can be configured on/off in later releases.
Re: WIP versions
Set "RTTexturesForceScaleAndMSAA" to false has no effect.

Ok, forget it, I solved the problem.

This game works fine for me, no problem with the map.

B1. no problem with dgvoodoo2.54 and WIP41.
B2. if using dgvoodoo2.55 or WIP42 or later version, the island map won't show and it's empty. (See screenshots)

Then I guess it's the usual texture problem on AMD. 😖

I'll try to debug it on this game, what is so special about the map...

Update: good news and bad news!
Good news:
The map problem is fixed from 2.7 to 2.73, thank you very much!

Bad news: Since 2.74 there is a weird color problem like my other two DX8 games...
