I finally tried Windows 98 3Dfx acceleration - new build qemu500-system-i386_glide_sdlaudiofix_minimal2.exe , but im unable to make it working, i dunno maybe wrong games, but probably some bad setup.
Win10 1909, CPU 9600KF, Nvidia 1070, last drivers.
Im using this starting line, so far without any HW acceleration to see difference later:
- im not sure, if cirrus is possible to use, or i have to use generica Vesa driver - from my experience its unstable even for basic desktop work, cirrus is stable and its sort of Qemu default.

I have copied fxmemmap.vxd + Glide files (dll) to C:\Windows\System.
Im using file from 2020-03-09(modified) or 2020-03-17 (Created), im thing that they are last one.
Here is my dgVoodoo settings:
I everythime copied all 3 Glide dll to game folder, maybe i have to copy, only one, but which one?
Quake 2 demo, it freeze right after start - so i have not possibility to switch from Software rendered to GLide.
Quake 3 demo, game is not initialized, some problem with graphics card setup.
NHL 2000 demo, i can it setup select Glide at all.
Im old goal oriented goatman, i care about facts and freedom, not about egos+prejudices. Hoarding=sickness. If you want respect, gain it by your behavior. I hate stupid SW limits, SW=virtual world, everything should be possible if you have enough raw HW.
