I'm trying to run Mata Hari from 2008. It keeps crashing after the intro. I think it's directx related but can't figure out why it keeps crashing after changing the exe to xp service pack 3 & playing around with different directx 9 dlls.

Anyone have any ideas to get this running with win10 pro?

Are you playing from a disk or from a download? Do you get an error message? I'm heading to bed, but maybe there is something here that will help?

Hey Drac, yeah I saw that. It notes "select MataHari.exe and choose High performance". Don't see this as an option anywhere. I've tried many others steps I've seen to no avail. frown

What graphics card do you have? It looks like NVIDIA control panel has a high performance setting. That may be what they are talking about.

This came up from googling:

Quote
Click NVIDIA Control Panel. On the left side, select Manage 3D Settings. Select the Global Settings tab. Change the preferred graphics processor to "High-performance NVIDIA processor."


However, when I looked for this in my NVIDIA control panel, I am not finding it...
