So I decided to play Shadow Warrior with my Ultra Wide monitor. But when I started the game the menu got chopped off. And when I start a new game the game crashes. I have the same problem with the Steam version.

Can anybody help me?


Edit: I just tried the Duke Nukem 3D Megaton edition and got the same problem.

I cannot help you, but I can confirm, that since I got this game for free Dec 2016 I cannot play this game. Each time I see only launcher screen and after it disappear task ends itself without any error.

Edit: I google and found solution for my problem caused by galaxy.dll https://www.gog.com/forum/shadow_warrior_series/shadow_warrior_classic_complete_crash_at_startup_when_internet_access_is_blocked

Edit2: I sent this info to gog support.

I can also confirm this crashes while game tries to load first level (got asus pg348q ultrawide)
Actually I solved this thing a month ago by contacting GOG support. You need to install some old DirectX driver.

Should have posted it here but I forgot about it.

Which driver do you need?

Not sure but might be this one. https://www.microsoft.com/download/details.aspx?id=8109

Edit:
So I just contacted GOG again because I reinstalled my PC and this was what they said.

Also they said that you need to be 1920x1080 or lower higher will crash the game.

I found rolling back to the previous patch (1.1.6 gog-2, or something like that) fixed the issue.
