I’ve got a relatively new Lenovo laptop on windows 10 and I’ve got Grand Prix 3 set up and running with dgvoodoo2, all thanks to the guide on the first page so I’m buzzing with that, thank you.

But after that I’ve installed GPxPatch and that runs too but nothing seems to convert into the game, like GPxinfo for the onscreen graphics etc. The same goes for GP3 edit, I installed the 2020 car set to see if it works, and on the menu the 2020 graphics and team driver and names are there, but when the race starts it’s just the 1998 cars with 2020 names

Any modding (or GPxPatch specific info) is only available in Hardware mode. If you run in Software mode (which I suspect is the best way to get a stable framerate out of a laptop), then those things won't work.

And you have all my Sympathies... :D ;)
ok, if it is working I raccomand dxWnd. find in this post the setting to run correctly,
[drive.google.com]
because DgVoodoo is more compatible, but really poor in terms of CPU occupancy trouble. and you need gave compromises in terms of rcr distances and resolution for make it playable.

however if you have a desktop pc - not laptop, I think GT210 is a desktop machine -, I could suggest to have a better one, also used models, you can find many , better , with really cheap.
I have a GT610, but e still speaking about a HD2500 level performance, but very well for this game. You can find better, AMD or Nvidia.
