Can you give me the names of the WA Series games which lag?
Is it WA: Planet of the Z-bots? Or WA: Mysteries of Fire Island or the first WA?

ok i noticed when the lag comes. When there are too many movable objects. On my level sundog mirage. They are gems moving, snow moving, and the magic particles moving. On my other level The Crystal Lake and the Sewer. on the first scene there are not many moving objects. Only 3 fire flowers and the star and some coins. But in the second scene there were bridge alts, coilys, fire flowers, magics, sleeping wee stinkers ( particles ) and the lag was extreme.....

Strange! Are you sure the lag happens on all the games? I meant, it should happen only in POTZ and WA3E.

Make sure you enable 3D acceleration in VirtualBox and also do install the VirtualBox Guest Additions.

The only thing to remove the lag currently is to downgrade to 1803.

You can also try using dgVoodoo2, as given below.


Image
1) Go to this site - http://dege.freeweb.hu/dgVoodoo2/dgVoodoo2.html
2) Download the dgVoodoo v2.55.4 version and use 7-zip or any other zip utility or compressed zipped folder to extract it in your computer.
3) After extracting dgVoodoo v2.55.4, go to its folder, then in 3Dfx folder and in x64 (QEmu) if you have 64bit Windows 7,8 and 10 of course and copy Glide.dll, Glide2x.dll, Glide3x.dll.
4) After that, go in WA Games folders and paste those three dll files (actually paste them in the files where the launcher of those games is).
5) After go back to dgVoodoo2 folder and afterwards to MS folder and copy DDraw.dll, D3DImm.dll, D3D8.dll.
6) And finally, go in WA Games folders again and paste those three dll files too again (paste them in the same file where the launcher of those games is too).
7) And ta-da, WA games will gonna work.
