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...

Works on Computers from Windows95 to Windows7
It will run on Windows8. However, on many it runs very slow, while I have one report with no problems with speed on windows8. Will update when we know why this is?

DON'T MOD THIS VERSION OF THE GAME, MOD Your Original.
ALL FUTURE RELEASES FOR DDF8 1.22.3 Will be OFFICIAL , FULLY TESTED, and COME WITH A DEDICATED INSTALL PACKAGE..
This is the update, 10 months in the making. Download and install the files, no copying and pasting or complicated instructions to install. This will not delete or overwrite previously installed versions of DD&F8 that are on your computer, your own modifications or mods to older versions will not be changed and will still be where you left them.
Make sure to install the 1.22.3 setup first! Those of you using Windows XP and older systems will have to download the XP patch.

Everything is done, all of the bugs worked out, everything posted. If you do find any problems, missing files, or other problems post a reply in the beta topic.
DD&F8 Update V1.22.3(Beta)

The AI driver package is not in an extractor, in order to allow you to pick and choose what AI cars you want to UNZIP and when KEEP THIS ZIPFILE as you can reuse it over and over to change AI drivers. If you want team cars but not team vans, you can do that. If you want an all truck derby, you can do that. Simply Replace the Current Drivers Folder Used by the Game with one of the many Drivers Folder Choices provided, inside each folder Description)

Do not delete any of the cars, tracks, or other files from this release, as doing so can cause crashes and complications online .
Game is set to Beginner Level. You must win 3 Local Derbies to Unlock Regional Tracks and Cars. You must Win 3 Regional Derbies to Unlock National Tracks and Cars. (METAL MAYHEM is a NATIONAL LEVEL TRACK)

I am really really really looking for some feedback. I take it either no one has downloaded the game, or some have but not bothered to let me know if it works or doesn't on their setups.

Either way I will keep this post up for a while longer before closing the thread..

Please if you have a windows8 computer please download and test this game out.
And if you got an windows7 to windows95.. well lol, have fun :)

You probably will have to appeal to those who are very good with Sandboxing or Virtual Machining, so that all that good stuff is installed within a Sandbox or VM.
