Windows hooker - intercepts system calls to make fullscreen programs running in a window, to support a better compatibility, to enhance video modes and to stretch timing. It is tipically very useful to run old windows games.
- Run fullscreen programs in window
- Perform time stretching to slow down or speed up actions
- Add several compatibility options to support legacy programs
- Log operations, show program status and palette
Does exactly what it's described to do: Making older programs and games work in windowed mode and sometimes even enables them to work at all on modern machines! gho is also really active in the forums.
DxWnd is amazing, without it I wouldn't even bother going back to revisit older games. It's a little daunting at first to setup because of the vast amount of options, but gho (the developer) is super helpful, just make a post about your game and he'll help you set the thing up, or he'll just fix DxWnd to work with your game. 6/5 Stars.
Very useful program and best of all it works!
Super helpful developer, super useful program. It's the ONLY way to fix certain games like Hoyle Casino Empire in w8.
A really great piece of software, driven by a developer who's both active and supportive.
