OK all you 8500 Fans, Find this!!!

This will sound strange, but does anyone know where I might be able to find Glide support for my 8500? I've got an old game I've been waiting to finish, and now that my system will finaly let me play it with my joystick (Stupid Windows 98 problem with their Sidewider 3D Pro), the game wants a glide2X.dll to run.

Is there such a thing? or am I destined to never play this game to the finish?

I do not like it Tom you see,
I do not like green PCB.

  1. I don't know if anyone is still doing this but people were writing things called Glide Wrappers. These are dll's that intercept Glide interface calls and translate them to OpenGL, DirectX or native calls (I don't recall which maybe all of the above). I remember seeing these Glide Wrappers for Geforce cards. (I could never get them to work). I can't say I've ever heard of them for Radeons and successors though.

    Gives you something for which to search.

  2. I had one for my old MX and TNT cards, but it only worked in 98. Thanks for the info though.

    Ok, found 3 usefull sites.
