As you can read elsewhere... it crash because included wrappers are not compatible with Windows 10.

Replace winmm.dll (make backup) with one from this pack[rr2000.toshiba-3.com] (it's CD audio wrapper which read ogg files instead of CD audio tracks; this version may not work with earlier Windows).

If still crash / network game crash remove (rename/move) wsock32.dll. (I think other wrapper may work - it's for IPX/SPX->TCP/IP for net play).

If still crash remove (rename/move) winmm.dll either.

It is also recommended to update nGlide (look below for different method):

Before install new version you need to remove current one form game directory. Just move

3DfxSpl.dll
3DfxSpl2.dll
3DfxSpl3.dll
glide.dll
glide2x.dll
glide3x.dll
nglide_config.exe
nglide_readme.txt

files to some backup directory, then install new version (copying new version to game directory probably is not necessary as is under XP, just remember it will not work without Glide wrapper, also Glide wrapper when is installed affect other Glide games). New nGlide will be installed with new nglide_config.exe which will be available from
Menu Start->Programs->nGlide->nGlide Configurator
and give access to some options.

Or another method (just replace the files without nGlide installation):
Originally posted by rc2sm:
nGlide installer[steamcommunity.com] put new files in windows\system32 directory, so this may be the reason why antivirus scream, so you can put nGlide directly into C2. install 7zip[www.7-zip.org] (great, free file archiver). Open nGlide105_setup.exe with 7zip (just right click on this file and select 7z->Extract files... then point to C2 location on your drive, by default it's located in C:\Program Files\STEAM\steamapps\common\Carmageddon2\ or C:\Program Files (x86)\STEAM\steamapps\common\Carmageddon2\ (If you want create backup just browse [with exploer or something you are using to browse the files] to that dir and copy the original files to some new folder like NGLIDE_BAK) Extracted files should overwrite the previous (so answer "yes" or "yes to all"). Note: It will create two useless folders starting from "$", but you don't need to take care about it (it can be removed).

For music check Music option in game.

If you need to reconfigure keyboard use CKB (do not set same key for too many functions), if you want to use controller use external software like xpadder (or similar).
