Panzer Elite Action Fields of Glory: How to Play in Win 10

Some steps that could help to start the game in Windows 10, and also fix the no-movement (no animation) of the tanks tracks.


IMPORTANT. Read this before try the guide.
I wrote these steps, using Windows 10 Home, version 1709. Some players have reported that the steps don’t fix the problem in some of the last Windows 10 updates, and I think these updates maybe could be useful a widower program to launch the game initially in a window to change the configuration after, but i never tried. Just know that depending on your system, the guide could work or not. Thanks for reading.
If the game does not start in Windows 10, follow these steps:

1.Open the folder where “Panzer Elite Action Fields of Glory” was installed:
“…\Steam\SteamApps\common\Panzer Elite Action Fields of Glory\”

2.Right click over file “PEA.exe”, select “Properties”

3.Select “Compatibility” tab

x “Run this program in compatibility mode for:”
and select:
“Windows XP (Service Pack 3)

5.Also mark these options:
x “Override high DPI scaling behaviour” – Scaling performed by: Application

x “Disable fullscreen optimizations”

6.Clic “Ok”

I add the FIX to solve the error about the no animation of track-wheels (Thank you to Dot Matrix and plasmajam for the solution):

7.Search on internet, and download: “dgVoodoo2“. Decompress it and look for file “D3D8.dll” (don’t worry about antivirus possible alarm, it is a false positive, the file is ok). DgVoodoo2 is a graphics wrapper that converts old graphics APIs to Direct3D, for old games can be understood by modern systems

8.Copy “D3D8.dll” inside the game folder (it will solve the initial not animation of tank track-wheels)

    This does absolutely nothing. The game does not pop up at all, And does not shut down when steam closes it. dgvoodoo has no effect at all either.
