I already have UT 99 running in OpenGL+S3TC textures on my main PC (Athlon64+X800XL), but I would like to know if you can use the high rez textures in glide mode on a Voodoo 5 or you must play in OpenGl mode to be able to enable those textures. (and suffer a performance hit on the V5)

Thanks,
Steph.

By the way I was very surprised by the visual on my main PC, the combo Open GL + High rez textures is king of the hill for UT99, Glide in second and D3D rendering mode in third place (and UT99 D3D is ugly IMO)

Even Glide 3 is optimized for 16 Bit and "old" Voodoos, so there's no support for textures above 256x256 texels ... AFAIR.
