the game will start fine and work fine until you choose start race. Then it freezes. The only error I have seen is a etrace. Never seen that befoe.

I think someone said you have to run it in 800x600 resolution for it to work, but don't quote me on that. If that's the case though, it's pretty crappy because the graphics won't look as good

I kinda think this is a game error instead of a windows 8 error, but not positive. IF you could download teamviewer from www.teamviewer.com and pm the info on here that'd be great and I will log on and try to help you

I have windows 8 and no probs either. I use 1440X900 res. Do you have directx program installed? If not try this www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35 It helped me. I also have my Games folder in the OS(C:) directory.

I didn't have to put a code in, BUT you can make DTR2 run in windows XP mode by right clicking on icon and click troubleshoot compatibility , it will then ask you if you want to run DTR2 on an earlier version of windows, try that. Windows 8 has every version of windows within itself, so if you like XP you can the put the programs you liked in XP or Vista or 98 or whatever. I LOVE W8!!!!
