how do you run pre directx 9 games that got no patches to run on modern hardware? Also which ones better dgvoodoo or wined3d?

i just use wine for windows simple as thatis on the fdosena page.
is quite usefull can be used even on emulators like zsnes,gens32 and so on but you need a gpu that support opengl or vulkan
>>
>>10821526
Find the gog installers.
>>
>>10821526
check pcgamingwiki for old titles like that to get patches and fixes. NFS3 that you included a pic of here has a full modern fan mad patch that lets you run it in HD resolutions and fixes lots of bugs.

A shame most games didn't opt to use OpenGL, instead of proprietary Micropenissoft Shitware like DirectX.

Directdraw wrapper. This should work, there a few others that do similar things in case this doesn't work, just Google direct draw or d3d wrapper.

Also dgvoodoo is great, I totally forgot about it. It has the most customization, it's how I got the baldr bullet demo to display correctly on my gpd win 1

Dgvoodoo. Nglide when i get lazy.
>>
As >>10821642 said, check https://www.pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Need_for_Speed_III:_Hot_Pursuit
At this day, I still can't get Porsche to run even with the patches.

Isn't the PS1 version better?

OpenGL wasn't really that great, DirectX had superior compatibility
>>
>>10821647
OpenGL was and is shit. Sometimes there's no conspiracy that the better software won and sometimes the better software is Microsoft's.

it has better physics, the pc version is not bad, but it's wacky
