well I am no expert,correct me if I am wrong,but a voodoo2 glide2x.dll is different from a voodoo3/4/5 glide2x.dll(I can use a glide2x.dll file from a voodoo5 driver with my voodoo3 and vice versa,but I cant do it with voodoo2).
there are some (windows) glide games that run fine on a voodoo2,but wont run at all with v3/4/5.so the question is:it is possible to create a file or a tool that would translate the voodoo2 glide calls for the v3/4/5 cards,enabling execution of the v2-only games?

I have observed this with incubation:time is running out game,a demo can be found here http://www.bluebyte.net/eng/products/incubation/demo.htm ,I was simply not able to run this game with my voodoo3/5,I have tried everything,patches, drivers,nothing works,this game simply wont run on a v3/4/5 card,but it works great with a v2,so I guess the "glide to glide wrapper" is needed..you are my last hope..
