Issues With Windows 8
Posted Sep 06 2013 - 05:21 AM
I am running an HP Probook 4540s with Windows 8 (x64)
I have installed the game with the all-in-one installer and encounter an error on startup which reads
when extracting a glide2x.dll found on this forum, I am met be the next message
I'm 20 years old and am reasonably savvy with computers, any suggestions however indepth they may be, I should be able to roll with.
I'm glad this community exists as I have always wanted to play an golden era simulator as apposed to the F1 playstation games post-2003.

You'll need to setup GPL to run either OpenGL or Direct3D, Glide isn't supported unless you actually have a 3Dfx Voodoo card.

You problem is an old one (see the FAQ at http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=3714 around 3/4 way down the first post) that's fixed with the new installer. Then, chose either OpenGL v.2 or Direct3D V.2 rasterizer in GPL's options menu.

However when trying to open GPL 1.3 I am still faced with the same glide2x.dll errors and the program will not start

Guessing this is Win8 config problem? (I don't use it).
But maybe...make sure Sierra folder and all its contents is not "read only."
Forget how to do that but think its right clic file and open Properties and its somewhere there.
Also, (don't know if this would make a difference), did you do anything custom or special when going thru the 1.07 Installer dialogues?

if it allows you in, make sure you immediately create a new player

I did nothing out of the ordinary during setup apart from change the razers to D3D v.2

Any OS from Vista on and higher don't allow for writing in that folder and older programs often do.
