I'd like to add some touch-ups some day, like change the patch DLL so it's no longer implemented as dinput.dll proxy (or proxy for any existing DLL used by the game) and nothing is done from DllMain (it's just not proper, but convenient until you know better), add the ability to use dedicated saved games folder on modern Windows versions, add ASI plugin loading support and maybe something else that slipped off my mind.

Unfortunately, I got a job back in 2019 and after daily staring at the screen for 8+ hours a day and dealing with customers' crap, there's hardly any energy left. That much staring at the screen is bad enough on its own.

Welcome back. Totally understand the job situation and staring at a screen all day putting up with customers shit; I've had plenty of that in my past jobs :)

The attached photo linked to porn so it has been removed but to answer your question the thumbnail looked like it is not running in full screen. Does pressing alt+enter switch it to full screen?

No, alt + enter does not switch to full screen mode. <links to porn sites removed by admin>

I have a similar problem and not managed to solve it but it can be fixed until I task switch. The game starts in windowed mode you could try changing the settings for full screen / windowed in the riot engine options and then trying alt and enter.

I'm using the community patch which includes the aio patch. That has an option to use the dgvoodoo renderer which emulates a 3dfx card. That works for some so you could also try that.

Unfortunately drakan is still buggy on windows 10 and certain video cards. It does not work properly on intel integrated graphics. What are your system specs?

That should be fine to run the game. But I have a similar problem which I haven't been able to resolve and I think it's related to Windows 10. I don't use the 3DFX driver as the game won't run at all with that; it just crashes at startup. But in D3D mode it does start in windowed and then going into the options and changing it to full screen works. I then quit and reload the game and it then starts in full screen. As long as I don't task switch then it messes up again and I have to repeat the process.

Sorry for the late reply. Have had a lot on recently and haven't checked the forums in a while.
