I followed the installation guide and installed the game. But, when I try to launch a mission, the game just freezes in the loading screen.
It's also interesting that MW2.DLL from the patch v1.1 does not reference any Glide stuff (nor any other file from the game) while the original install does.
I have a feeling I'm doing sg wrong.
Well I told to follow just the "Running" part because the 3Dfx version doesn't have a patch, it was already patched from launch. The 1.1 patch is for the Windows port of the actual DOS game which isn't 3Dfx based.
Install just the game, install the ACT fix and importing the DxWnd profile should ensure that you can run the game fine.
In case you didn't install the 1.1 patch (which you aren't supposed to), you can reproduce some steps yourself-
The game needs the IgnoreScheduler shim to bypass a black screen freeze at the start of the game after the intros, and during a mission load. While both the Pentium Edition (Win95 port of DOS, the guide that I linked) and the 3Dfx Edition use the same executable name and I made sure to exclude the attributes of the file to ensure compatibility, there might be something else not activating the shim that freezes the game. You can reproduce the same shim with ACT easily.
