    Default How I got WipEout 2097 (European version) to work on Win8.1 64bit

    1. Copy CD-ROM contents to folder on PC
    2. Copy setup32.exe from Is3Engine.zip (http://www.reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10988) to the INSTALL sub-folder
    3. Run setup32.exe to install
    4. Install Typical size version to c:\wobble
    5. Replace Wipeout2.exe with slowdown version (attached Wipeout2slowdown.zip)
    6. If using WipeEout 2097 instead of WipEout XL: go into these folders are rename these files:

    C:\wobble\BLITSURF\HI-RES\RSTART97.PPM > RSTARTXL.PPM
    C:\wobble\BLITSURF\HI-RES\2097COPY.PPM > WOXLCOPY.PPM
    C:\wobble\BLITSURF\LO-RES\RSTART97.PPM > RSTARTXL.PPM
    C:\wobble\BLITSURF\LO-RES\2097COPY.PPM > WOXLCOPY.PPM
    C:\wobble\PICS\HI-RES\2097LOGO.TGA > XLLOGO.TGA
    C:\wobble\PICS\LO-RES\2097LOGO.TGA > XLLOGO.TGA

    7. Run Wipeout2.exe (no compatibility mode needed). If framerate is jerkier than you expect, and you're using Windows 8 or 8.1, to restore smooth framerate, use Microsoft's Application Compatibility Toolkit and apply the fix: NoGDIHWAcceleration

    8. Run Wipeout2.exe again (no compatibility mode needed)

    Caveats:
    - This is for basic install, I couldn't get the network patch to install (complained about missing setup.lid file), plus I don't play multiplayer
    - The opening video (and possibly all videos) doesn't play; these are just MPEG files on the CD-ROM if you want to watch them
    - The framerate may start a little low then smooth out
    - The game might crash sometimes
