Today I installed this old game to play it after some time. Unfortunately it doesn't run properly. The game doesn't crash but it has incomplete ui that breaks it: no crosshair during gameplay, sliders in menu settings aren't shown at all, two white stripes at the top and bottom. Here's my system's specs:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3700X, active PBO, stock cooling

GPU: AMD Radeon 5700 XT (model: MSI Gaming X)
RAM: 32 GB, 3200 MHz, CL 16
Display devices: AGON AG241QG4 via DP, 2560x1440 @ 144 Hz

Driver version: Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition 20.5.1

Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming, BIOS version: 1408
PSU: Corsair RM 850, 850 W
OS: Windows 10 64bit, version 2004

 

I tried various patches and nothing worked. The game works properly on my older computer with Intel CPU and Nvidia GPU. I suppose the drivers somehow mistreat the UI of this game (my other old games using DirectDraw are working properly, it's just this one that has flaws).
I realize this game is old and played by few (or at least by not so many like newer installments) but if you could fix it for current drivers and GPUs, I'd be very grateful. Even just for inspecting it.
