I think a howto like this is the best you can get, thank you.

should be marked as sticky in this board!

trying it tomorrow

game works very well now! wonderfull!

the last major bug i have is when i do one click somewhere, it goes like a rocket.

when i will give a driver +1000 salery, ge skips it to 50.000 with one click. but the bug is known here and i can handle it

with the ddraw.dll file it crashes with the error sare incompatibility. when i click ok it says the game will exit now. with a second ok it closes. but it runs without the ddraw
the other thing with is the framedrop in race mode. thats anoying but playable!

Position the mouse cursor over an icon you want to use and press Enter/Return to adjust what you want by one instead of multiples.

I 've followed all the steps that Veedub set out but I'm still getting stuck on the gold FIA logo page.

Anything else I can try?

(I'm on windows 10)

Thanks.

Try to set the compatibility mode to win XP service pack 2.

Without, GPW stucks on the FIA logo for me, too.
Make everything in the tutorial here in this thread + compatibility mode XP service pack 2.

please report.

Unfortunately, that didn't work either. However, I can get it working using DXWnd, so that's good enough for me.

Thanks.
