I have been modding this game since 2009 . It uses Directx8 and works with 9c, and Vista and Windows7 directx versions, in software mode. This download is defaulted to use Vista and Windows7 , the xp patch for xp and older computers to windows95 will display 3d accerated graphics, and the vista and windows7 use software mode.
The game installs and runs on Windows8 , in some cases very slowly. I do not have a windows8 computer available to me or I would be putting it through the paces.
Please , download this game and let me know if you have it running in full speed and if send specs of your computer or any tricks used to get it to work full speed.
Its a simple and very fun game. .. I am putting it here cause I need some troubleshooting help...
Please and thanks...
