Re: V-Rally - lack of shadows under cars?

Incidentally, Win95 mode doesn't need applying on my 64bit Win8.1, and if you do, the game won't work, as it tries loading nomouse.com, which is a 16bit app, which won't work on 64bit.

The game works fine with no compatibility settings for me.

V-Rally - lack of shadows under cars?

I'm not seeing shadows under any cars with the 3Dfx version of V-Rally, unlike the screenshot on your compatibility page. I can't see them when using dgVoodoo either! They're present in the Direct3D version though. Any ideas?

Boss Rally - suggestion to add to Compatibility page

With Boss Rally (which can be a pain as some virus checkers (e.g. AVG) will find parts of it to be false positives), once you've got the game installed, running it on modern PCs may just show an error that it's unable to launch EAR. This is a surround sound driver that the game uses (the installer f...

Test Drive Off Road 2 - 2 bugs

1. In-game, press Esc then QUIT GAME, the game will then exit back to the desktop, when it should go back to the menu. It doesn't crash to desktop with latest test version of dgVoodoo. There's a TDO2_LOG.TXT file generated in the game folder, which contains the following: ---------------------------...

Re: "new" obscure glide game discovered!

I have a more obscure game: XLR8... It's a futuristic Racer by Speedworx that was only released in a London arcade, as far as I can tell, but was advertised around the same time as Plane Crazy, by Europress, but never came out. Anyway I've got a pre-release demo of it from an ex-developer. It ONLY r...

Re: Thrust Twist and Turn - Glide only fails me

Thanks for this, but I'm getting Direct3D AND Glide crashing now, with or without that sdb. I think this one may end up in the pile of late 90s/early 2000s games that crash randomly (or at certain points) often, but then sometimes work too. Gotta debug em all later on methinks. Things like Supercar ...

Re: Thrust Twist and Turn - Glide only fails me

even more odd, just switched back to Win95 and now the game seems to work more often than not!

Re: Thrust Twist and Turn - Glide only fails me

p.s. cool tip, launch the ttt.exe with command line -d (e.g. D:\Games\ttt\ttt.exe -d) to enable Debug mode. Now the F keys do all sorts of funky things. Most importantly from a gameplay perspective, press F9 at the start of each race and the ENTIRE TRACK will be rendered, not just the immediate dist...

Thrust Twist and Turn - Glide only fails me

Odd results with Thrust Twist + Turn (updated to 1.1) and nGlide; if I start the game with no compatibility only Glide mode shows in the game's config menu, however when you start the game it crashes to Desktop (or freezes with a black screen) after the 3Dfx logo has played (when the video should be...

Re: Powerslide Texture buggin with NGlide

Tried 1.00 and 1.01 but both kept saying it wouldn't work on NT, even with compatibility mode swapped, only 1.04 works for me now :-/
