i just use wine for windows simple as thatis on the fdosena page.
is quite usefull can be used even on emulators like zsnes,gens32 and so on but you need a gpu that support opengl or vulkan

check pcgamingwiki for old titles like that to get patches and fixes. NFS3 that you included a pic of here has a full modern fan mad patch that lets you run it in HD resolutions and fixes lots of bugs.

A shame most games didn't opt to use OpenGL, instead of proprietary Micropenissoft Shitware like DirectX.

Directdraw wrapper. This should work, there a few others that do similar things in case this doesn't work, just Google direct draw or d3d wrapper.

Also dgvoodoo is great, I totally forgot about it. It has the most customization, it's how I got the baldr bullet demo to display correctly on my gpd win 1

OpenGL wasn't really that great, DirectX had superior compatibility

OpenGL was and is shit. Sometimes there's no conspiracy that the better software won and sometimes the better software is Microsoft's.
