I have a voodoo2 SLI setup with a TRIO3D card for 2d gaming.
I start GTAFX the game starts to menu, but when I start the map, It returns with the message: What 3DFX card?

See screenshot.

I put GLIDE2X.ovl in the gta and the gtados folder just to be sure.
What am I missing?

I see that you haven't got replies yet. Did you make sure that you used the correct GLIDE2X.OVL file that comes with the Voodoo2 driver?

I can take another look at that, I have copied the file straight from the C:\windows directory in to the game folder.

Well, I have found a partial solution.
I had the cards in SLI, but it is a mismatched setup.

And apparently MS-DOS ain't to happy about that idea. Unless there are mismatched drivers for ms-dos, I will have to go and fly solo.
