Alternative to DXWnd

Hi Everyone,

I found this patch for Armada 1, but it also fixes mouse lag for BOTF in Windows 8/10.

Note; This patch only runs BOTF in Fullscreen only and is not compatible with DxWnd ... k-Armada-1

the 2 files would need to be added to install path of each install
then you would also need to edit the ddraw.ini (from patch) to turn off the ArmadaFix
when open find line with
ArmadaFix = 1
and change to
ArmadaFix = 0

after that your system may have an old compatibility setting set in windows registry
open the regedit.exe and go to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
and delete the registry for install path of the version being tested.

While I have found DxWnd adds some stability to BOTF this patch has not been tested long term.

Just thought I would offer an option to DxWnd
