I think every model of Voodoo should
support DOS GLide, as long as the card can be set through Environment Variables (SST_..., etc).
However, many early GLide games (which also happen to be DOS GLide games) only work on Voodoo1 card --they only work with newer Voodoos through Environment Variable settings.
For example, Mechwarrior 2 (GLide version) doesn't work with Voodoo2, unless you set the necessary environment variables
to make the Voodoo2 resembles Voodoo1.
IIRC, most patches to run "Voodoo1-only games" on Voodoo2 are nothing more but batch files.

What DOS games don't run on your Matrox? Do they required special resolution mode or such?
I have a Matrox Mystique on an old rig, and every DOS game I have run perfectly except Dawn Patrol
, whose resolution is 640x400.
