If this list is supposed to represent games which only support Glide while not offering D3D nor OpenGL rendering, then it's incorrect.

Dues Ex and Diablo 2 both support D3D, at the very least. I'm guessing there are other games on that list which do as well.

It's meant to represent all games that support Glide, period. I agree it's a good place to leap off from.

I used to have a thread like this but I don't think it ever got a decent conclusion.

Moved to appropriate forum, tho.

Dreams to Reality

That game was one of the most painful ones I've ever played.
Puzzles didn't make any sense, good luck trying to play through this without a tutorial.

When it came out it looked pretty good, though - and the big box is also very beautiful. 😀

According to the box, 3Dfx is not a strict requirement.

(The other versions mentioned are probably just software mode - it's been a while since I touched that.)

I don't know. I only have a Voodoo 2 SLI setup.

Maybe someone else from the community can chime in here.

Well, just to be clear, the original NFS2 is a strictly software rendered affair. NFS2SE definitely offers a Glide mode, are you sure it also offers D3D support? I'm fairly certain D3D support in the series started with NFS3.

Fairly certain Dreams to Reality only runs on the original Voodoo (and perhaps Voodoo Rush). Even Voodoo2 can't run it apparently.

Just tested it out and yes, it doesn't seem to work on a Voodoo 2:

main: grSstOpen failed

Only the DOS version comes with 3Dfx support (and it needs to be installed manually with a batch file from the CD).
The Windows version uses D3D or GDI rendering (two different executables) and gets installed by default.

Edit: According to this thread the game does not run with a Voodoo 2 because of an incompatible glide2x.ovl - but it should run with a Voodoo 3:

This is the only game that uses glide2x.ovl that no one has yet been able to run on Voodoo 2. But it works on Voodoo 3.
