Title : Few Issues
Writer : Scrilla Date : 2022-03-20 Count : 7285
 
I'm running windows 8.1. and pretty regularly have the game crash to desktop. When running xwnd fullscreen the game covers the entire screen but the resolution looks terrible and I get ~12 FPS. When running the ddraw.dll win1 fix I get side bars of black on the sides but resolution and FPS seem to be much better. Anyone have any suggestions or fixes for these problems?
 
    Zilch Unfortunately this is just the life of keeping an old 2002 game working properly on modern hardware. The issues started showing up on Windows 8 due to how Microsoft treats DirectX much differently going forward, so these are workarounds to at least make the game playable, and is also why the game is default set to Windowed Mode, as it’s the best performing mode of them all. To get the best GunBound experience, I honestly recommend buying an old laptop off eBay for like $20 that runs Window(2022-03-20)  
    Zilch Windows XP*. It’s a weird recommendation, I know, but it works flawlessly on Win XP and Win 7. There’s only so much duct tape we can put on an old game to allow it to run on modern hardware before we have to throw up our hands and give up or start again from scratch. (2022-03-20)  
    Scrilla @Zilch intersting. Thanks a lot. Compatibility mode of any help?(2022-03-20)  
    Zilch For your specific issue, no. Compatibility mode only simply makes the game work in general, it doesn't fix any of those bugs.(2022-03-21)  
    Scrilla Any hopes of having an app like Sizer becoming compatible?(2022-03-27)
