Opensource Glide Emulator for Classic Games?
8:26 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
A IMG forum user by the name of Abecedaria recently posted some information that fans of older Mac games may find interesting. Basically, it contains a link that points to a little project known as OpenGLide, which emulates a 3DFX-Voodoo GPU, translating Glide calls to OpenGL.
It works in both OS 9 and OSX Classic giving FAR better visual quality in these games compared to RAVE at the price of performance. However, if you have a fast enough CPU, it might be fine. I'd love to hear peoples comments.The poster reports success with a GeForce 4 Ti, but troubles with the ATI 9600 in his PowerBook. Those interested in giving the emulator a try can find it at SourceForge.net.
