Midtown Madness 2
Windows - 2000
Description of Midtown Madness 2
Midtown Madness 2 is a madcap driving sim that puts a focus on street racing and stunt driving through busy urban areas.
Like its predecessor, Midtown Madness 2 offers a variety of vehicles, courses and modes to blast through at dangerous speeds.
Gameplay is largely unchanged from the previous installment, offering simple controls that are easy to learn in a racer that is difficult to master. Though opinion is divided on vehicle handling, I found the controls and overall handling of vehicles to be superior in Midtown Madness 2 with less tendency to have the back-end come out from under me in the turns.
Graphics are about the same as the original; except I experienced more issues with monitor flashing at the higher settings than in the previous installment. Minimal graphic settings with maximum draw distances, however, run fine without any flashes and have an adequate overall quality.
A big change over the predecessor are two "training" modes which, in fact, serve as story modes for the game; in one you play as a London cabbie learning the ropes, the roundabouts, and all the tricks as you blow through virtual London, while the other you are a stunt driver for action movies.
Midtown Madness 2 is a lot of fun and the story modes offer something for players looking for more than simple racing and challenge modes.

For sound, go to the main menu, clic option and chose default device. If I picked my specific device it wouldn't work once a race is started, but with default device it works!!

This is what I had to do to play a STABLE game that does not crash on Windows 10 Pro x86 ...
Use the ISO (.nrg) image, NOT the RIP.
Use Daemon Tools Lite to mount the image.
Run SETUP from image and install game, do not try to play it yet.
Install XP Compatibility Patch, it's ONLY for THIS game!
Download the Speed Boost patch from ... http://www.mm2x.com/page.php?name=Downloads&d_op=viewdownloaddetails&cid=62&lid=119&ttitle=Speed_Boot#dldetails ... which replaces the executable (midtown2.exe) in the game files.
Change properties compatibility settings of "midtown2.exe" to Windows XP (service pack 3), and set to run as administrator, but still do NOT run the game yet.
If you don't have it already, search and download dgVooDoo2, it's a great Wrapper Engine-Hooker for old games. Follow it's documentation, but generally you simply copy the patched drivers from dgVooDoo2's MS folder to the game's folder.
Now you can run the game, but after the menu loads go directly to the options menu and set the graphic renderer to "Hardware (3D Video Card w/ T&L)", choose your favorite resolution too while you're in there.
Shutdown game and restart it.
Play and enjoy. Everything works great!

I got the game working using dbVoodoo and the game works great, but there is no sound besides the main menu music. Any fix for this?

To play on Windows 10:
1. Download the RIP version.
2. Do NOT download or install the official Windows XP patch for the game.
3. Install the dgVoodoo patch for the game, in this order:
a. Extract dgVoodooSetup.exe, DDraw.dll (from the "MS" folder), & D3DImm.dll (also from the "MS" folder) and place these files to the installation folder of Midtown Madness 2.
b. Open dgVoodooSetup.exe; click on the "DirectX" tab and change the following: Videocard needs to be changed to "dgVoodoo Virtual 3D Accelerated Card" if it isn't already selected.
c. Click "Apply" and close out of dgVoodooSetup.exe and open Midtown Madness 2.
When the main menu loads, navigate to "Options"; "Graphics"; then change the video accelerator to "dgVoodoo2 w/ T&L" and click "OK".

Does it lag a lot?,this may help, run it in compatibilty mode
heres how(if u see random digits,ignore that, i copy and pasted this frm a site that has images):
1. In the taskbar search box, enter run programs, then click "Run programs made for previous versions of Windows."
2. Click Next and the troubleshooter will try to detect potential issues with your apps.
3. Select the app that's having issues in the next window and click Next.
4. Select a troubleshooting option: use the recommended compatibility setting or choose compatibility settings yourself.
If you choose to use the recommended settings, the troubleshooter will test the app using a previous version of Windows so you can see if that resolves the issue.
If you choose the choose to troubleshoot the app, the troubleshooter will ask you which problems you're experiencing. Depending on your selection, the troubleshooter will offer tests and suggestions to resolve the problem, such as testing the display settings for the app.
5. Click the Test the program button and then click Next.
You can then either choose to save the settings for the app, try different settings, or report the problem to Microsoft and view help articles online.
You'll have to run the troubleshooter for each app you're having compatibility problems with.

Other downloaders, you not need to insert ANY CD-ROM drive just extract the zip and open the application named "midtown2.exe" then, enjoy!

It's a good game, I liked it alot! But one thing that bothers me is the ISO version, after I installed the game through the ISO version with those virtual mounting softwares, it says it can't find the CD on startup verification. I hope there is a patch to bypass this.

Still cant find a work-around for not having the disc, any information yet? Motocross madness 2 works great with the instruction provided in the comments but do not work with this game unfortunately due to there not being a no cd fix to download. :(

And not only that, you can also drive around San Francisco with this.
I did and I loved it.

When I started playing this, I saw where the trees did not look like real trees at all.
They were really big but they came with black leaves.

Setup has detected that uninstallShield is in use. Please close uninstallShield and restart setup.
There's no such thing as uninstall shield anywhere in the task manager.

To answer the question of RIP vs ISO, if you want to burn a copy of the cd get the ISO, but if you want the game digitally, get the RIP file.

Got this game at age 4 because it was included with the computer my father had just bought. Now I'm a 20 year old woman and this game still makes me laugh like a maniac at unholy hours. If you wanna watch the world burn in a child-friendly way this is the right game. 11/10
