i was having graphics problem on WinXP SP3 with nVidia 8600GT. after some googling, i came across these tips here
about disabling hardware acceleration.
since they work quite well, i've wrote a small program (GrimDDFix) to do the DirectDraw toggling for me. i post this program here
in case someone like me has a need for it. happy gaming...
