Image thats the error i get if i place the ddraw.dll into my gpw folder.
anybody saw this error before?
my framerate drops in the races into nothing after a few rounds so it would be nice to have it fixed with the ddraw

Just place the ddraw.dll into your main GPW installation folder. That's it.

https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat/ ... tag/v0.2.1



ahh glad you find a solution.
i will test it out asap and tell you if it works for me.

Sadly it's not an error that I've seen before, although it sound like the error is accurate. Either it has not detected the correct display depth (16-bit) or the display depth you are using is not compatible or it cannot detect the memory levels of the graphics cards etc. (but unlikely). You could try switching off your dedicated GPU to see if the game works via the onboard GPU but only as a last resort.

Providing you are using a official executable upgraded by GPW Edit, that modified exe should be able to handle display depth changes.

Try v0.2.1 of the DDrawCompat or the experimental version:
https://github.com/narzoul/DDrawCompat/releases

Otherwise you may just have to go back to DxWnd or another operating system. :1sad:

Same error with the experimental ddraw.
but i made progress in the frame drop bug:

it highly depends on what race screen i use in the 3D race!!!!
when i click track conditions, the frame rate often drops
when i choose the speech history where all dialogs with the drivers are listed, it ALWAYS drops the frame rate.
when i choose fastes laps, it never drops.

i dont know why
