"nglide" 3dfx games!!

Hello

This a plugin for Win7 (64bit),
with this plugin your operating system thinks it has a 3dfx video card installed..
So you get a 3dfx card installed next to youre Nvidia or Ati card.

If you don't know what or who 3dfx was then shame on you

Click on the link for the games that are playable..

I thougt most people out here are old enough to know the old rival of Nvidia and ATI..

Some games that you can play again:

- Fifa 98: Road To World Cup
- Need For Speed 2 SE
- Pandemonium 2
- Test Drive 5
- Turok: Dinosaur Hunter

etc..

Hard to believe there was a time when an 8-inch VGA cable was as long a cable as you needed to go from CRT monitor to the horizontal box underneath!

That cable is actually used for an SLI setup

Quote:
A critically acclaimed feature of the Monster 3D II (and all other Voodoo2 boards) was the capability to connect two identical boards in a SLI (Scan-line Interleave) configuration. In SLI, a pair of Voodoo2 boards splits the effort of rendering the 3D scene, allowing performance to be nearly doubled.
