I had built a new budget gaming rig (i7 w/ 16Gb RAM). I added a Nvidia GTX 1050ti 4Gb compact Black Friday deal to complete the new system. Loaded up Win 10 and promptly installed TW08. I tried the boot options of limiting RAM and still got the dreaded Direct X no memory errors.

I then tried the dgVoodoo program and despite multiple tweaks I could not get around the DirectX errors. I toyed with running the game from a hyper-v machine or running from a standalone pc.

Thru some arcane mix of luck and desperation, a Google search came up with a post about using a program called dxwnd to run older dos/full screen games in a Window. The thread can be found here


I downloaded the program. It runs a lot like dgVoodoo and has a built in profile with settings that should run TW08 in a window. This actually worked for me. Runs the program in a window that can be resized or maximized. Once inside I did have to go to the video settings and max out all the sliders, but the game looks great! You don't have to reduce your startup RAM or any other changes. Just run TW08 straight from the profile you build in DXWND. I tweaked a few settings but some changes may cause the error to reoccur.

Your mileage may vary, but this is another option for people to run TW08 on modern video cards without dx9 support.

You can download here:

Good luck!

Going to try this, but I would be careful about downloading files from place like Source Forge. Sometimes these site can post .exe files that are not legitimate.

I would also create a restore point for your computer before installing/running programs like this.
