Quake 2 and 3 both work. Might need GL extension limit on some cards, but should need nothing more than that.

Yes a lot of OpenGL games, not limited to this 2, need extension limits on Intel graphics. Radeon and GeForce seems to have fixed that.

ATI and nVidia must have added profiles for these games with GL extension limit. Modern ports of them don't need it.

Yes new drivers have that fixed, some older drivers had the problem.

Added option to add VM based games

MechWarrior 2 31st Century Combat

What does this mean? That MechWarrior 2 works on virtual machines within Windows 7 and up?
Sorry if that is a very basic question but I have been away for a while...

It uses a closed environment named MechVM where this game can be run. The DOS version can be run perfectly but the Windows version is hit and miss. The app was originally for Windows7 so the game works the best there.

Pretty sure Heretic II had a freeze/crash on load.

Interestingly, it randomly crashes on Adventure/Action modes but not all times. Whenever it crashes the even viewer shows following problem signs:
P1: Heretic2.exe
P2: 1.0.0.1
P3: 365140ed
P4: StackHash_ab66
P5: 0.0.0.0
P6: 00000000
P7: c0000005
P8: PCH_A2_FROM_ntdll+0x00071BDC

It doesn't happen always. Few years back, it always crashed for me. Now it doesn't always for some reason.
I tried looking up for P8: PCH_A2_FROM_ntdll+0x00071BDC but couldn' find anything.

Edit: What I said about not crashing always is only true if the Tutorial has been loaded once.
Edit 2: I found an indirect fix and I have posted it in the main post.
Edit 3: Turns out someone already posted a video on it in 2016. It just so happened that I played the Action/Adventure/Armageddon modes only after starting a Tutorial so I didn't face the problem.

MTM 1 and 2 both work fine as long as you limit the fps for the AI to work properly. MTM2 have problems with some VPN clients background services. Heretic II runs with GL Extension limits. Rogue Squadron 3D needs the DirectXTrimTextureFormats flag from MS ACT to display in-game text properly (at least the demo version does).

MTM1 and 2 was running at 60fps, I don't know if its a monitor limit or some other limit. I never got above 60fps in this game. Rogue Squadron 3D was fixed by dgVoodoo, but its good to know it works without it too. 😀

Meanwhile I couldn't figure out how to use the Action\Adventure\Armageddon mode without launching Tutorial first. I believe GL Extensions limit are provided with my driver.
