I believe you are talking about the external program to select and automatically fix video.cfg. If so

I created the video fixer to fix Software>Hardware. There is wasn't any real download available, and it's not standard with MM1.

So
a) Just reinstall
- Doesn't come with game
b) Do we really need a thread for this?
- Yes. Nobody knows where to get it
c) Just redownload
- Download wasn't available.

BUT. I just uploaded it to MMArchive in case anyone needs this still

I have tried the videopatcher and after I have executed the patch the video.cfg shows hardware mod but when I run midtown.exe after the patch I get a message. It says: Click OK to have Midtown Madness detect the presence of a hardware accelerator card. This may take a few seconds, during which your screen may flicker. And then video.cfg shows only software mod again. Please help!

I have tried to fix video.cfg manually also but when I run midtown.exe with the modified video.cfg I get a message. It says: Click OK to have Midtown Madness detect the presence of a hardware accelerator card. This may take a few seconds, during which your screen may flicker. And then video.cfg shows only software mode again. What is the error with video.cfg?
Please help as soon as possible!

I think you dont understand what my problem is.
Is it possible to upload a video in the forum and show what the problem is?

Using Windows 7/8 ? Try the following:

Run MM1 in XP compatibility. Then try the videopatcher again.

If that doesn't work, or you've already tried that -- Use the videopatcher on the video config in the VirtualStore. (Users\yourname\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Midtown Madness)

Hope this helps.
