the game is one of those pesky mid '98 games with 3dfx support that just refuse to work on any modern pc even with wrappers. I managed to install it, but once the game it either just clsoe abruptly or ask for the cd (which is loaded already as a virtual unit and its still not recognized)

Unfortunately it looks like this is one the many games that were broken by changes introduced with Windows 8 (it works on Windows 7).
 
I found a solution online for removing the disc check (open HEDZ.EXE in a hex editor and change 74 06 B0 03 to 74 00 B0 00) but it doesn't get much further without it--with dgVoodoo 2 it starts but only get as far as the initial copyright screen before it crashes.
