Flickering in old games on Nvidia (very strange problem)


Recommended Posts

Just a quick note, i've installed Win 8 and i can confirm that old games work perfectly there, no flickering. 

Did you still have access to win 7?

It would be a nice thing to track down what dlls are creating the problem

But.. it's a 2004 game! I thought it was way older.

Anyway there's even another method to limit framerate

Here it seems they have fixed the problem


Will give a try to as soon as GOG.com staff grant us the game to test it

Limiting frame-rate won't work. All methods works the same way. The issue is related with in-game clock, the processing speed is very fast. I also took a look at Process Explorer, but couldn't understand exactly which method that user used. Tried Cheat Engine for slowing down the in-game clock. It is not perfect, it just makes everything laggy. I guess GOG.com needs to take a look at it.

Download processmonitor and run it. Exclude all others annoying programs

Open the game and when you double click its entries in PM, you'll see a list of loaded .dlls with their relative path


Copy .dlls used by the game from the corresponding one in the Windows 8 partition to the game folder until you find the one which creates the problem
