Glide Wrapper ???Originally posted by Betamax
Dan is it a creative labs one? If memory serves me correctly creative made a glide wrapper at one stage.
Hmm...........what about unreal series???Before i bought my GeForce 2 card, i had a voodoo 3500... I just swaped them out and went on my marry way... But the stranges thing happened, i am able to play glide games on my GeForce without any problem. Even the glide benchmarks, (eg wizmark) and games play in glide perfectly fine....

Glide is dying. I wish people would stop pro-longing it's painful death by asking for glide renderers for emulators, Glide API implementations on other cards. FFS people, it's a dead API.
There's not one thing that would merit keeping Glide alive on NEWER cards.

Nope glide wrapers are basically emulators. They convert the glide instructions into opengl or D3D so that non glide cards can run on such programs. This takes resources away from the actual game and so if the game supports other modes these will usually be faster. They are only really useful for running glide only games.
For unreal download the latest patches and use either opengl or D3D. However opengl is buggy in unreal so stick with D3D if you can.
