CudaMan340,
Try to delete the "race.exe" file, and run dgvoodoo again.
Click .\ button and browse for Viper Racing.exe
Also try to set Viper Racing.exe compatibility mode, as Val wrote.
Please,let us know if you had luck, or if you have found another way to make Viper Racing run,
for other folks information.

CudaMan340...
You got me stumped.
I hope somebody else reading your post can help ya out.
I am going to guess that the graphics card you have is not compatible with VR.
One more thing you might try is going back to the original drivers for your graphics card.
I heard somebody doing that once and it worked.
Oh ya....I forgot one more thing...try running the shortcut to the " Viper Racing.exe " in compatibility mode ( try 'em all ) with " run as administrator " checked.
Sorry I couldn't offer a solution if that last idea don't work.

I tried the following suggestions, but I am still having the same issues. I have a nVidia GTX 1060 video card. I went into nVidia's software and also tried to turn off features to see if things would change, but I am still getting missing textures.

CudaMan340....
First make sure you have the ( v1.2.5 2016 )patch installed.
It shows the patch version at the bottom right hand corner of the screen when you fire the game up and click the options button.
Also Install directX 9.0c full package ( it does not interfere with the dx version you have now ) then try the game.
Follow install instructions carefully.
http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html
There are a few settings in the VR game itself under options ,graphics tab,hardware features.Uncheck one at a time - try the game - if it still is the same - check that 1 back - try the other one.If that still didn't help, deactivate or activate options that your graphics card give you ( try only 1 at a time).
Report back here and let us know what you did to fix it or if it still don't work.
Thanks!
Val

Hello,

I am trying to get VR to run on my Windows 10 system, but the black items are transparent. I tried to fixes mentioned in this forum, but it is not working. If I click on the race.exe in the data folder, all works fine, but the Viper Racing.exe in the game folder doesn't recognize dgVooDoo. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the response man! Has anyone ever looked at the source code for VR? I'm assuming so, as you've made your own patch, and heck, so did the vrgt guys. It might be listed in there for ways to do it. As for "unhandled level 9" it sounds like currently VR cannot handle 512 x 512. That's why i suggest the source code. Be it, you DID answer my question. Thanks :)

Gel38....
I tried to convert a 512x512 tga file to a tex file and I get an error "unhandled level: 9"
The game might handle that size IF we could get the tga to tex conversion working.
If you ever find out how,please put a link here to the tools you will be using that works with that size tgas.
An object in a track you make or convert can only have one texture, unless you use "multigen" program.
That's what I read somewhere anyway.
In a car conversion you can use as many as 10 textures - after that the textures show up glossy in different places on the car ( looks bad ).There might be a way to fix that problem,but I never read a solution anywhere.
Cya later!
Val
Thanks!

Hey Val, will VR take texture sizes bigger than 256x256? Just curious if the 2016 patch enables that, or use of multiple textures. And if so, how many?

Run dgVooDoo.
Click the icon .\ (dot and backslash) (I forgot this ;) )
Close dgVooDoo and test Viper Racing.

Thanks for the tip from Dravos at vogons org forum

Dang, such a shame since I just upgraded my graphics card a few months ago so I could play DOOM'16 properly and I've got no intentions of running two cards at once :|

Thanks for the reply anyway, at least the game runs [shrugs]

Yo thatmotorfreak....
I heard of that same problem somebody else had years ago.
I think it was the settings in the graphics card.
Sorry I don't remember the fix but just try activating or deactivating 1 option at a time.
If all fails, then I would think the graphics card itself is just not compatible with Viper Racing.
Good luck!
Val

I'm running the free 2016 version off of vnovak's site and I have a bit of a graphical issue. Some objects are transparent (e.g. car's tires, yellow signs, a barn's roof) and I'm not sure what's causing this.

It's trivial but it irritates me. Anyone having this issue as well?
