Hey, so I managed to get SB1 version 1.226 working on Windows 10 using DXWnd and it actually works completely fine except an annoying texture anomaly - all objects' textures are garbled, screenshots included.
Everything else like the terrain, effects, trees, water, UI etc. looks perfectly fine and functional.
I know SB Pro PE is much better in every way but I can't buy it since I don't own a credit card, SB1 is an amazing game regardless. I couldn't find a single example of this specific problem online though so I came here hoping someone knows what's up. I've seen some people run this game fine with DXWnd so some of you must be able to help? Thanks in advance and thank you eSim for this amazing series of games!
P.S. all the textures in the models folder in the game files look completely normal and I tried reinstalling, so the problem must be somewhere in the rendering...
EDIT: I forgot this is also my first post here so I hope I'm welcome, I've played various simulations over the years, mostly tanks and aircraft and I have to say SB looks like just about the best simulator there is when it comes to modern armor.
