I'm not sure if this is the same thing, but I always used to have an error code while the video sound was playing (Windows 7).
This was easily fixed by running MM2 in Windows XP compatibility mode.
I have no idea how Windows 10/8.1 will react to this, but it's worth a try.

AmirNajjar: You're welcome! It's very nice to hear that it's working! :D BUGATTIMAN253MPH: I have set the settings to match yours and ran MM2. I had no grey flickering with the camera. I searched a bit more and found a patcher for DirectDraw: https://www.old-games.ru/forum/attachments/directdraw_com...

I can't thank you guys anough for this! MM2 is now running under Linux Mint with wine, so no Windows OS used!
And it runs very smooth at highest resolution with only city sound effects enabled.
FINALLY, Linux can run my favourite game thanks to you guys 8)

I am happy that it worked for you! And you are very welcome! I also updated the post, saying 2.52 does not work. MSAA sounds very interesting, I haven't played with that yet. Thanks! EDIT: With the 2.52 version, did you also copy the D3D8.dll to the MM2 folder, or just the other 2 (D3DImm.dll and DD...

I installed the latest dgvoodoo (2.52), and I have the exact same problems now. It runs BAD... After downloading version 2.5; Extracting the zip/rar file (not sure which format it is); Copying the 3 .dll files from the "MS"-folder into MM2's install directory; Launching MM2; In graphics se...

KingAndy: In the "Directx" tab of dgVoodooSetup.exe, there is a "Force resolution" option. Have you tried to enable it and set it to 1600x900 (or other resolution), and if not, did that fix the issue? Also, I don't think MM2 can handle a higher resolution than 1600x900, but that'...

I tried installing Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (64-bit) on the computer with the AMD graphics card. It refuses to load any of them. I uploaded the dll files i use to get MM2 to work, in addition to that I uploaded my version of the game in a password protected zip-file, for anyone who wants to test: ...

I am currently upgrading a Dell desktop pc of mine to Windows 8.0 (32 bit). I am going to try dual booting it with Windows 8.1, so I can look into MM1/MM2 problems better (maybe even triple boot, so i have 8, 8.1 and 10 on one pc). But it's going to take some time, even with installations from usb-d...

WANTED: Unity Checkpoint editor for MM2

There was this forum post on MMarchive, with a download link to a program that could edit the checkpoint positions in races. It was made in Unity and therefore totally in 3D. You could fly trough the city and put a checkpoint anywhere you wanted and it would auto-edit the excel-file with the checkpo...

The No-CD launcher was from mmarchive, which I believe is the speedboot one. There was no xp-patch included in that version... If I install any xp-patch, MM2 just refuses and I get "MM2 isn't working anymore" error (something like that, I have the Dutch version of Windows 8.1. After that, ...

Uh, i noticed AMD hate old games! But they are the best cards! (For new games, duh.) This is the end of the world. I just play old games, NVIDIA IS MORE EXPENSIVE. Now they are going to steal my money later. EDIT: Note: Graphic card Driver Version MIGHT affect the perfomance too, as happened with N...
