Help runnning H.E.D.Z on win 10 x64

Recommended Posts

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.
