  1. Check this out: https://www.ghostrecon.net/forums/index.php?/topic/62626-install-gr-on-windows-10-11-with-great-graphics/ Should work, no matter what type of system you have.
  2. Check on a post I made: Install GR on Windows 10 with great graphics. Dgvoodoo should resolve your issues when running and AMD card with updated drivers. I run this setup on Windows 10.
  3. This might have more to do with the graphics card drivers then the windows version. Most recent drivers don't really work well anymore with DirectX 8 which is the version GR requires. So you'll need something that exposes DirectX 8 functions while still working with your graphics card. I just created a topic on running GR on Windows 10 with great graphics and audio.

  4. UPDATE (2022/12/04): Updated the article with new information Questions have been asked on how to play Ghost Recon on modern hardware with Windows 10/ 11. Back when this great game was developed there was no knowledge on how todays graphics audio cards would evolve. It sometimes makes it impossible to play the great games of old. Below the way to run Ghost Recon on Windows 10/ 11 with any type of driver or update installed. It also brings EAX back, without even owning a SoundBlaster card. 1. Installation: The original CD installation media for GR has SafeDisc DRM, which does not work on Windows 10/ 11. DRM free versions can be acquired via: Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Gold Edition (PC DVD), which includes the original game, Desert Siege and Island Thunder Steam, where all 3 editions can be bought GOG, where only the original game is available 2. Audio (DSOAL): DSOAL is an open source libary that enables EAX, even without owning a soundblaster card. Get DSOAL; latest version: http://vaporeon.io/hosted/dsoal-builds/ Copy the 3 files to the game installation folder. 3. Graphics (dgVoodoo2): For AMD graphics cards owners that update their drivers: Using dgVoodoo2 resolves the MiniDumpWriteDump error for the atiumdag.dll file. Get dgVoodoo2; either 2.54 or latest version: http://dege.freeweb.hu/dgVoodoo2/dgVoodoo2/ Copy D3D8.dll from the x86 folder (since this is a 32-bit game) to the game installation folder Start dgVoodooCpl (application found in the archive) when using the latest version: For AMD cards with the latest drivers, it is required to set the Output API to Direct3D 12 (fl_12) Copy the created dgVoodoo.conf to the game installation folder 4. Run Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon No preset options.xml file required 32-bit Z-buffer can now be selected in the configuration screen EAX should by default have been detected and enabled Have fun. Maybe this should be made a sticky topic.
  5. Maybe to do some clarification on the topic. Starting with Windows Vista, everything around DirectSound3D has been taken out of the operating system. Therefore you must now use software that circumvents this to bring positional audio back. So if you still want positional audio in your game you need to choose one of the 3 software options below and follow the steps to make everything work: Creative ALchemy Universal: https://community.pcgamingwiki.com/files/file/28-creative-alchemy-universal/ This is sort of the Creative library itself, but with support for any soundcard. Usually works very well. Open the application and Add/ Activate the application for ALchemy usage. DSOAL: http://vaporeon.io/hosted/dsoal-builds/ This is an Open-Source version that supports any soundcard and is still being actively supported today Drop the files into the directory of your installation. alsoft.ini is used to configure how DSOAL should behave. IndirectSound: https://www.indirectsound.com/ IndirectSound has only very limited EAX support, but might sometimes be the only way to get everything working. From here you should be good to go with positional audio in place again. Results will vary based on setup and used software.
