As from the second lap, it is mostly on 60 – 70 with brief peaks to When more cars appear in short space, it falls down to – too. RCR is set to default values. Perfomance has been improved in hardware mode, but still not good enough, as I am a bit of a perfectionist.
I need to be below PO all the time. The first lap is now very acceptable to race in HW mode. PO doesn’t rise above for short periods. Edited 2 time s. Reply Quote. To my horror, I have the same exact visual bug when I try to launch it using Windows 7. Yes, I went through the trouble of buying a new hard drive, installing win7 on a computer with USB3 only, just to be able to run GP3 glitch free.
And sadly it doesn’t work. I guess I really have an issue with my graphic card Radeon One difference though: when running the performance test, i have the visual glitch on every mode software too.
With Win10 I had only issues with Hardware modes. I thought of using this computer to play the game, but for some weird reason Windows 7 won’t boot at all if I leave my linux drivers connected and I don’t want to have to switch cables every other day. That’s when it struck me: I have another computer I could use!
We have an “old” dell laptop, also with integrated intel graphics, and even a GTXM. I did a quick copy paste of my GP3 folder on the laptop, launched GP3 through dxwnd the laptop has win10 , and it runs perfectly fine. Why the hell didn’t I thought of using the laptop before? So problem solved: it’s definitely a bug on AMD’s graphic cards Edited 3 time s.
I have windows 8. Is there way I could play championship with other rain probability? Hi all: Getting back to GP3 after many years. Anyone has played GP3 with this patch? Is there any difference in performance between the unmodified exe and the “converted” for x64? Edited 1 time s. You shouldn’t see any difference as it would be useful only if your application needed more than 2GB of memory, which is definitely not the case with GP3.
Does anyone have also the issue where in a wet race, the track background disappears shortly after the race loads? Nevers had such an issue. What is your setup? I tried dxwnd, but I can’t really get it to work. Can you show your settings for dxWnd? Hello back to y’all. I downloaded and installed today from some abandonware site, loaded the nocd patch, and works awesome, just two things: 1-I always have to calibrate the graphics and put the game in x before I start racing.
I definitely can stand that, but is there anyway to skip that? Isn’t there any other way of using it? I would like that to know to Must be a setting of a f1gstate thing Reply Quote. Sorry, You actually shouldn’t calibrate , at start of the game, when asking to you if you want calibrate, put even “No”.
Indeed you don’t have to calibrate everytime, it’s a bug of the game which does not store the fact that it did the calibration already. Simply say no. Regarding the resolution choice, i don’t get it: the game does not save the one you have set before? Here is written how to fix grafic calibration problem. Until yesterday, it was running just fine with dgVoodoo 2 installed and configured.
This is driving me nuts since last night because I can’t figure out why, I click to run the game and nothing happens. I have reinstalled it several times. I have even tried a brand new Windows install. It’s bloody crazy.
Am I missing something? The only thing I did yesterday was to uninstall Steam and rFactor 2, which I had installed just to test hours before, because I needed more disk space for other things. Other than that, there are nothing really really different. This is bloody crazy. Because I was running the game just fine since last weekend until yesterday. Mind, dgvood has the.
What the error? Are you running with admin grants? Did you check the compatibility? Here I’m not using dvdoo yet. But my GP3 doesn’t start after a fresh reboot.
I have to kill the GP3. Furthermore, this happens just once each reboot. Print View RSS. Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum. News Forums Downloads. Diskussionen in Deutsch Discussie in het Nederlands. Grand Prix 4 Grand Prix 3.

A television style race banner, which works so well in other F1 sims, is needed.

Click here to login. This will allow you to run GP3 on Windows 10 and perhaps Windows 7 without needing to dual boot Windows XP, or using a very old computer. You will still need a high-end graphics card to achieve acceptable FPS. My 1GB Radeon HD gives 25fps at all times, except at the start of races and from the back of the grid, where it can drop as low as 14fps, but usually stays around fps.
If your card is less powerful than this, expect lower FPS still. Instructions 1. Install GP3 as normal, update to GP3 1. Downloads here: [ www. Download the latest version of dgvoodoo2 as of June , it’s v2. Copy dgvoodoosetup. These will be labelled DDraw. Run dgvoodoosetup. Uncheck anything I haven’t mentioned. You may now close the dgvoodoosetup program, it does not need to run anymore. Once loaded, you should be able to set the resolution within GP3 to x if you have a very fast, modern computer.
If the FPS is too low, reduce the resolution lower to suit. The first corner is especially slow FPS if I’m at the back of the grid, after that it’s fine. Perhaps someone with a faster PC can verify whether they have any better performance. Notes For even higher performance, try the following: 1. Try the 4GB Patch! Reply Quote. Thank you very much for this fine toturial for installation of GP3 on Win Would be great with some feedback from users on Win If it works for all it might be a fine idea to make this tread a sticky first on the forum listing You’re welcome!
It would be nice if it could be stickied. The latest FAQ is dated and it seems crazy that the same questions get asked over and over and not always the best answer is given. I still think installing the game on a Windows XP machine is preferable, but as dgvoodoo2 gets improved, hopefully so will the performance of GP3.
Failing that, when I next buy a new graphics card, I will post an update and tell people if my performance has improved still. I get a message “Direct Draw not installed” when trying to run the game. Probably something related with my crappy Inter HD chipset.
I should have said in the original post – you will need a dedicated graphics card in order to play this game under these conditions. The DirectX wrapper is not intended for onboard graphics. My 1GB Radeon HD gives 25fps at all times, except at the start of races and from the back of the grid on the first lap, where it can drop as low as 14fps, but usually stays around fps. EDIT: You could try this fix though.
I had to install DirectPlay in order for the game to work, but it asked me the first time I ran the game: [ www. Will give this a go later on!
Thank you! Had a go this evening. Still at least the game is playable now so thank you very much for this post. What about frames per second during a full grid? Load Montreal and start from 22nd.
Before the race begins, navigate to the external camera and press pause. What is your FPS? Intel Core iH 2. I’ll try soon So does that mean your FPS is very low?
It doesn’t work for me! GP3 uses fixed FPS. You don’t get higher FPS if your system is fast, but you get slowdown if your system is slow.
The game is still trying to output My game open menu, but doesn’t open race. Can I use this with GPxPatch?? Who anyone help me? Print View RSS. Sorry, only registered users may post in this forum. News Forums Downloads. Diskussionen in Deutsch Discussie in het Nederlands. Grand Prix 4 Grand Prix 3.
