Issues unresolved[edit]

Slow-down when using a controller[edit]

  • When using a controller, frame-rate may drop significantly in main-menu.

Analog inputs do not function on newer versions of Windows[edit]

  • On Windows 8 and higher, USB controller (wheel and gamepad) analog inputs register according to the options menu, but will not function in-game as the default controller cannot be set.
  • A temporary workaround involves plugging the controller to a USB 2.0 slot and other peripherals into a USB 3.0 or higher slot.

This is due to how the game treats device priorities, relocating the controller to the top of the default controller list. This ceases to work on the next PC start-up,locking the steering to the left and disabling all controller input except for Acceleration.

Custom bindgings doesn't work in the game[edit]

  • Changing acceleration and brake to A/Z results in no reaction on key pressing during the race.

Issues fixed[edit]

Low FPS on modern systems or Crash after click RACE[edit]

(DirectX 10.1+) Use dgVoodoo wrapper[citation needed]
  1. Download newest dgVoodoo 2.
  2. Extract it and place it in a convenient place.
  3. Start dgVoodooSetup.exe and configure it.
  4. Select Virtual 3D Accelerated Card under Videocard and set its RAM to 65536 kB.
  5. Click Apply and OK.
  6. Now go to MS folder in dgVoodoo's directory and copy D3DImm.dll and DDraw.dll.
  7. Go to the <path-to-game> and paste the files in there.
In case of white textures bug, use version dgVoodoo 2.53. In configurator>DirectX set fast memory access, and 1024MB in case of FPS issues.

Low textures in cockpit view[edit]

Instructions[citation needed]

Running game in vista (no service pack) + administrator compatibility should do the trick.
