Hello Sabybaloch,

Since the Roadrash game you are playing is quite an old game, it might not be compatible with the operating system you are using right now especially if it is windows 7. The game might have been meant for windows XP and operating systems prior to it, and therefore you will need to check its specifications just to be sure.

Other possible causes for the game to malfunction as such may be the following:

  • The display drivers you are using on your computer are not up to date, and therefore you will need to access the device manager on your computer and update them.
  • You might be playing the game using a very low resolution on your computer. Just change to a higher resolution and see the effect it brings.

Hello Dear,

Concerning of your liking's, I think this is the problem with compatibility settings.
Please follow the steps:

1. Right click on the program and then go to properties

2. Now go to the compatibility tab

3. Run compatibility troubleshooter

4. See it works or not

5. If not working, then again go to properties>Compatibility

6. Go to settings and select Reduce color mode

7. Now select 8-bit (256) color and then run in 640×480 screen resolution

8. Click on Change setting for all users

9. Apply this setting

Hope this problem will not bother you.

Thanks for having your time
