Midtown Madness Chicago Edition

Postby COOLGUY200 » Fri Apr 29, 2016 10:30 pm

I just decided to install Midtown Madness on my new laptop. However, it doesn't seem to work...

Game checks for my 3D card, screen flickers a little, big screen, small screen, a-okay.

After the little intro, the game forces my computer at a 640x480 resolution and turns the screen black with only my cursor visible. Literally have to open task manager and end the process.

I tried launching the game through Midtown Madness Safe Mode, but that only got me the splash screen.

Then it told me that Midtown Madness! Executable stopped responding.

I guess it's called that so you can execute it. HAHAHAHAHAA
:roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

So here's the verdict. It won't even load the main menu.

Compatibility Mode? Nope.

dgVoodoo...HOLY HEAP OVERLOAD BATMAN! WE HAVEN'T TRIED THIS ONE YET~!

to Ashens and company!

Holy crap, that worked! Not only did I get dgVoodoo to make Midtown Madness 1 working, but I got MMRevisited v3 too, assuming the new EXE would help too :D

So thanks to whoever came up with the idea of putting dgVoodoo in MM2. Whoever had that idea, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

It looks a little fuzzy and not as clear as it used to be, but it works!

Sorry if this was a bit useless, but now you guys know what to do if MM1 don't work on your x64 bit operating system.
