Okay I have it installed on winXP 32-bit.
working voodoo 3000 drivers.
with the actual voodoo 3000 hardware
don't need emulation here.

Can someone provide for me a step by step; idiot's guide to getting this to run in glide please?

I not have the GOG version but:
1) There must be the eng3dfx.dll file (the glide renderer in the original CD version).
2) Start the game as "incubation.exe -3dfx".

Okay the gog version didn't work for me.
So I used the UK CD version to install in win98se, it still didn't work, so I used the The Wilderness Missions install folder from the GOG version to install on top of the CD version.
Then it worked and I got the glide splash screen on launch, however when I exit the game it causes windows explorer to crash and the computer must be restarted.

How fix???

this worked for me, can alt+f4 from the game now without a system crash.

Now I just need a way to run this in 1024x768, anyone? dgvoodoo maybe???
