PS. It could happen also because some Jam file required by the track is missed. Can you substitute with melbourne 2018 version ?

Is there any point trying this if I have an NVIDIA geforce 7300? I'm on 32 bit vista and I have the same PO problem. I must admit I'm quite happy playing in software mode because the graphics still look quite good and I have a constant PO at 20-30%, but I'd still like to use the gpxpatch features ATL and gpxSAT which unfortunately don't work in software mode.

Also the trick you suggested with gp3video in compatibility mode works perfectly, now my races don't have the glitch in wet weather anymore. Except 1 thing I noticed is that gp3video created A gp3 1.0 exe even though my gp3 version is 1.13, do you know why?

Because if I check the debug mode box, gpxpatch crashes and game does not start.

I'm running GP3 v1.13 for the first time since likely 2006!
FPS is sitting at 26 constant on Win 10 with dgVoodoo with 100% rain and full grid in front of me.
Haven't found any issues with the game at all. Steering wheel works great as well.

Just passing on some info for others as I know I was looking for it prior to attempting install.

Okay I don't want to open a new thread but here's my problem.

My GP3 1.13 runs fine just well, with GPxPatch and dgvoodoo, software mode, yada yada.
Now I just installed GP32k, put in the decrypted exe, dgvoodoo, gpxpatch. Everything works too, calibrating, testing graphics, sounds, everything! The only thing that DOESN'T work, is...anything after loading a track for a test drive. I'm literally stuck on the loading screen at 100%. But only if I want to drive myself! (EDIT: It does run in Hardware mode and very low-res software mode..but just not in the same resolution that GP3 1.13 runs, for some reason. Also it seems the colors are screwed up in SW mode so...strange. But I can't run it in anything higher than 1024*768)

My specs are -

Windows 8.1 64-bit
Intel i5-4200
8GB RAM
NVidia GeForce GT740M

As I said, GP3 and GP4 (if it doesn't randomly crash) run just fine, no issues at all! Just..GP32k doesn't.

I'm running dgVoodoo v2.55.1
CPU: i7 8700k
RAM: 32gig
GPU: Nvidia 1660Ti
Screen res: 1280x1024

If you turn on AA, it kills FPS I found even at 2x.
