Does glide run hotter than openGL? I've been wondering if running OpenGLide would generate more heat on a video card than running OpenGL? What made me think of this was the fact that my voodoo 3000 didn't come with any kind of fan, but 3dfx would let you add a 486 fan to the heatsink without voiding warranty because they had miscalculated the heat generated in native glide(or something like that). So if a card is designed to run in OpenGL, but its running in OpenGLide does it run hotter than it normally would?
Been noticing a few postings by guys with low end cards having DtDs after getting 10 minutes or so into a flight. Of course they are using three or so new things(West Front Patch, Promised Land, OpenGLide) at the same time so it makes it kind of hard to guess whats going on exactly. Heck they may need to do several things like drivers, directx. I just had to upgrade to directx8.1b to run the new Promised Land terrain myself.
