I'm setting up all the Glide API games I please on my 300Mhz Pentium box (a Tillamook turned into a desktop chip in a SS7 board, ask if you want more details), and it runs 98se with a Diamond Monster Voodoo II 12MB.
It seems almost all of the games I've tried to install so far want a Voodoo original, and refuse to detect the card - this means I have to manually copy files and reconfigure stuff to run with Glide in some cases, notably Pandemonium and Pandemonium 2. While Pandemonium original worked in Glide after some modification, its sequel had no such luck. The installer has a 3dfx checkbox but no files on the disk specific to 3dfx (unlike the original Pandemonium, which had a separate PANDY3.EXE and batch file for it which I could copy manually after the installation).
That said, the game runs fine, but there's no 3dfx splash screen so I'm forced to assume it's running in D3D or something on either the main video card or the V2.
Can anyone advise? Confirm that not seeing the splash screen must mean it's not using Glide (I made sure the no splash variable is set to 0 just in case).
