I've bought Hogs of War yesterday from Gog and it didn't work for me at the start. I was determend to make it work so I looked for possible solutions.

I've found a fix that made my game work great. It's an unofficial patch that will fix the music, the game, the fps and the textures missing ingame.

Sadly I can't post links.But you can look up the post yourself:

1: Go to google
2: Type in: Hogs of war windows 10 fix
3: look for: [HOW TO] Launch Hogs of War (win10)
* it should be the first search result (its a steam discussions post)
4: Open the post and follow the instructions in the post.

The post is partly in french but the poster is very clear about how to make it work.

Here is the contents of the post: (sadly again without the download link)

"1/ Download the patch files.
- Go on the source, click "Télécharger le jeu", click "Patch de compatibilité pour Windows Vista et ultérieur" and then click "Téléchargement HTTP"
- Unzip it (.7z file)

2/ Install "_inmm238": it's a tool/library that helps handling old games' sounds

3/ Copy all but the inmm238 installer to your game's directory (nothing should be replaced)
- ddraw.dll will act as the missing DirectDraw library (not included in Windows since Win8)
- _inmm.ini & Music folder configures the music
- warhogs.exe is the patched executable to use both ddraw.dll (graphics) and _inmm (music)

4/ Change compatibility settings of "warhogs.exe" (which is the new working game's executable)
- Set compatibility mode to Win95
- DO NOT CHECK Launch in 640 x 480
- Optionnal: I had to set these options too:
- - Replace PPP settings: use the software
- - Launch as admin

5/ Launch "warhogs.exe" & enjoy!"

I hope it will work for you guys too! Enjoy.'

same WRONG WAY method from wazer site

GOG\Steam version incompatible with old disc pirate versions (old have broken multiplayer). Use only DirectDraw Ccompat Tool (that dll actually used in all that links+some garbage files) or better - dgVoodoo. Google it, nubs.

This fix works for me. The game menu suffers poor performance but the game itself is fine.

I noticed the fixed music is in the wrong order (Maybe because it was the french version of the game so the french music has replaced the regular game menu music) so I downloaded the Original Soundtrack, converted all the .ogg sound files to.mp3 and renamed them 01 to 30 and replaced them with the music files provided and now it's working as it should for a UK version of the game. Thought I'd leave this note here in case anyone else noticed the music on the game was playing the french variation instead and wanted to fix it,
GOG already have OGG music pre-isntalled. Right order - for original PC version. One extra track 32 -1:1 as 31. One track from PSX version is missed (same as CD version).
It works.

Thank you mate
