If your mouse is horribly laggy.

I know there is another fix using Microsoft Application Compatibility center. But I find this fix is a little easier.

Download this and place the config file and dll in your geneforge folder with geneforge.exe

Set ForceDirectDrawEmulation to 1 in the config file and save it.

Make sure WIndows doesn't have slideshow wallpaper on, this causes the game to flash whenever the wallpaper changes.

This fix should work exactly the same as the MACC one, but I find it a lot quicker and easier.

Hello,
I had read somewhere that you could also repair in the same way Avernum 4, I tested thoses files and I no longer have the problem of lag mouse in my inventory, Thank you. :)
Thank you very much, fixed it. I had another problem: clicking on the floppy symbol to call up the main menu to save froze the game for about 6 seconds before opening it after all.

This was also fixed. Thanks so much!

Tried going to the link but Bitdefender blocked the site. Tried going to the site itself (apart from the link) and Bitdefender still blocks the site. Is there any other way to get this file, or at least give the name of the file so I can search for it?

Thank you.

Not sure why Bitdefender is having a hissy fit as the site doesn't seem to have any problems. Anyway, the actual file is called ddwrapper.zip and contains the files; ddraw.dll, aqrit.cfg, ddwrapper_readme.html and src.7z - hope that helps.

EDIT: added some more info.

You need to put both ddraw.dll and aqrit.cfg into the main Geneforge folder (where you have it installed). Open the aqrit.cfg file in Notepad (or an editor of your choice) and you'll see the setting. Just change and save and you're good to go :) Hope this helps.
