So my gaming laptop, a Lenovo Y50 with i5 and 8GB ram running Windows 8.1, is unable to force FFXI to run on its GPU, forcing it to run on the CPU. I installed and am running dgVoodoo 2.53 Graphics API wrapper to get FFXI running on GPU, but for some reason, the game consistently crashes when I'm in cities (Western Adoulin and Mhaura in particular, with a high population)
1) Has anyone had this problem before?
2) Does anyone know how to bypass the dgVoodoo trick? Is this just a Windows 8.1 problem?
3) Where can I find crash dumps for FFXI or dgVoodoo?
This is the exact problem I am describing.
