MacGLide Update Adds Game Support
12:55 PM | Evan Holt | 8 comments

MacGlide, a GNU shared library for Mac computers that emulates 3Dfx Voodoo Graphics hardware, was recently updated to 0.12.

The following was updated in this release:

Adds FutureCop, Quake, Descent 1 & 2 to the list of fully supported games

Features:
Gamma Correction (ColorSync has to be installed)
Better performance (Especially in Carmageddon :^)

Bug fixes:
FutureCop radar and dispatcher window working,
V1.02 not crashing anymore when pausing the game
Carmagddon retro mirror working
Carmageddon Map 3D-View working in all situations
Fixed crash when moving the cursor in Carmageddon Movie mode
Quake 3Dfx is working (actually it did all the time but it just wanted exactly 2M framebuffer/texture RAM)
Descent 1 & 2 display the cockpit and instruments
Switching between (emulated) Glide display and
Mac-Passthrough display preserves the color depth
Full support for undocumented Delta0 mode
(no more special cases for Tomb Raider and Carmageddon)
To try out the MacGlide and learn more about the project follow the link below.
