OpenGlide 0.0.9 Final Released
8:21 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story

The final version of OpenGLide has been released. This plugin allows any graphics hardware to emulate a 3dfx Voodoo Graphics board, now discontinued. This should allow games that use the Glide API in Classic to run with 3D acceleration. According to the Read Me, it works by translating Glide calls to OpenGL, the current standard API for Mac OS X.

Here's a summary from the read me:

OpenGLide for Macintosh is a shared library that emulates a
3DFX-Voodoo-Graphics board. It allows you to run old 3DFX-Glide games on
the Macintosh by translating Glide calls to OpenGL. OpenGLide for
Macintosh is a port of OpenGLide for Windows.
The file is hosted at Sourceforge.net, link included below.

Also of note is an IMG forums thread detailing user success with games such as Deus Ex and Unreal Tournament.
