Ages ago I tried the OpenGL way to get S3TC on Voodoo5 with UT, but it had weird rainbow glitches and was slow, and also required a specific version of 3dfxogl.dll

The guy who developed the OpenGL renderer (not Loki) recently made a D3D8 version of the renderer and I'm here to report it works GREAT on my Voodoo5.

Get it from here:

http://cwdohnal.home.mindspring.com/utglr/

I'm running in 800x600x32 and the framerate is very good, not quite as good as Glide in 1024x768x16 but it actually looks better thanks to the 32bit colour and the high res textures. Interestingly, I have discovered that triple buffering gets disabled at 1024x768 - I believe this is the case with Glide/OpenGL also, which explains why the control panel setting never did anything for me. I think this is a driver or even hardware level limitation. Strange indeed.

Anyway, here are the best settings:
