I welcome anyone that would like new WMC levels for PC. I was the Level Designer on "Wild Metal" for SEGA Dreamcast and "Wild Metal Country" for PC.

(2024) I am currently working on Level Designing my original SEGA Dreamcast Maps that I designed that have never been published. They work on the PC now. I can email the scene script, Ai script and data (New map) files for those that want to try them out in the near future. Contact me via :

Game Freezes/Crashes easily on my Windows 11 Laptop. Any fixes out there?
It does run just fine but will Freeze too easily to justify playing it...

Game runs through "WinEnv.exe" in a small window on Win10 64 bit.. Entering a name and pressing enter closes the game, however.. What am I missing?

Works on Windows 11
nGlide 2.10 seemed to help. Installed for Need for Speed 2

The game works fine again on windows 10 and 11.

There are some issues 'cause there is no way to save on windows registry graphic modes configurations but the game itself it's fully playable.

For Windows 8.1 use the Windows Border fix from PCgamingwiki and use dgVoodoo 2 D3D and the game should work, also use Creative Alchemy for EAX Soundblaster Live sound effects.

I was Level Designer for Wild Metal Country (PC) and Wild Metal (Dreamcast).

For anyone interested, I have redesigned new enhanced / fun versions of the 1st 2 single player levels and also managed to make a "co-op multiplayer" Level (up to 8 players Lan vs Ai Tanks).
I can email the very small files (simple copy and paste to play) to anyone who wants to play them? Contact me via email :
I can also advise on how to edit the levels to change all of the enemies to make the game more challenging or easier!

@ jasonvoorhees1969
The turret controls are extremely hard to master... most people just use the track controls to aim the tank instead of turret... works fine

Im having no luck running it on 10pro 64 bit though :(
It ran fine on 8.1 64 bit for the longest time then about a year or so ago no luck, then 10 same

I have tried every thing I know to do to run this game. It will not do anything beyond extracting the files. Won't install on Windows 10 64 bit. Loved playing the game on Windows XP and was hoping I could do it again but no such luck. I can't even delete the installer program.

This is an EXCELLENT GAME and ROCKSTAR website (makers of the game) they rebuild the entire coding and upgraded the game to cater for newer NVIDIA and other graphics cards about 2010 and since then it has worked fine on all versions of windows including win 10 64 bit ( some tweaking required when loading the game, it will load 2 windows of the game, ALT TAB and close 1 of them several times and eventually your mouse will move the arrow in the game showing the game is working 100% fine ) .... ALL FREE UPGRADED DOWNLOAD at Rockstar website ... in the ORIGINAL RELEASE in the 1990s, the maps were excellent ... they appear to have changed map 1 and 2 and maybe all of them making the first few a lot smaller ... less enjoyable .. but as you get to higher levels, it is still big and excellent .... now computers are dirt cheap, I will get a $50 laptop and bung XP and the original release on it, as I still own the original CD in BIG BOX from when it came FREE with my MATROX G400 Graphics card and Gravis Ultrasound Card ( AMIGA HAPPY HARDWARE in the 1990s, MOD FILES sounded brilliant on GRAVIS I wish that company still made hardware today )

Had to right-click setup.exe in the task manager - details pane, and 'analyze wait chain' to find out that setup bootstrapper was waiting on Skype for Business (lync.exe). Closing Skype fixed the hanging setup and allowed it to proceed.

I loved playing this game almost 20 years ago but am having trouble getting it to run now using this download.
I'm running 64 bit Windows 10 version 1803 (OS build 17134.165)
I tried all the Compatibility modes, with & without Administrator privileges, regular & 640 x 480 resolution, disabled/enabled fullscreen optimizations, toggled high DPI settings, and even reduced color mode but have had no luck. When I run setup.exe it goes to the User Account Dialog, I answer yes, it seems to work or pause for 5 or 6 seconds, then it simply stops with no window or dialog.
Any suggestions?

Well that's great you guys can get it to run on Windows 10 etc. I can't get it to run on Windows 7... it won't even install...

jasonvoorhees1969 2016-02-04 -11 points

is this game any good u ask? answer= I DON NOT KNOW, reason= the controls are complete SHIT!!!!!!!,could not control my vehicle nor did I have success in trying to configure the controls, I do not have a joystick so I could not set up that to try, a perfect example of a game turning INSTANTLY to SHITWARE due to strange retarded-ass controls.

I was the Level designer for Wild Metal Country(PC) and Wild Metal (Dreamcast). If anyone needs help editing levels via the scripts, I can help. It's easy stuff. contact me on if interested in editing the game levels.

I installed this on a Windows 10 PC and it worked well. Please note, you MUST run the program "As an Administrator" or it will not start. I just made a short cut that did that automatically.
