The test method is - start the game, go to Video menu, change resolution, click apply.
Nglide 1.02 - 10 attemps, 10 success.
Nglide 1.03 - 10 attemps, 0 success.
Tested with P4 3.0E/Radeon HD2600 Pro and Core2Duo T7500/Geforce 9500M GS. WinXpSp3. And Vista HP 64-bit (the second one).
The only difference is - with Vista there is no console, only the gray screen (with game music).

Ok, the nGlide 1.03 testing is resumed.

1) Arabian Nights. There is 1 small glitch - if you use Complex shadows, try to change keyboard controls, then resume the game - shadows will break (like in nGlide 0.99).
2) Barrage Xp patch. Intro movies aren't always resized. Desktop resolution is 1280x1024, the movie is in upper left corner. Next movie may be resized (the resolution is still 1280x1024). Or use 1/4 of the screen.
If I set 640x480 as the desktop resolution - the movie size is ok but colors are distorted.
A real Voodoo2 is working ok, all movies are 640x480.
3) Carnivores. Unpatched version. Main menu uses desktop resolution and isn't resized after exit from a hunt.
A real Voodoo2 is ok.
4) Centipede - Zeus, is there a way to fix Adventure movie w/o Dxgl or Alt+Tab twice? Because a real hardware is working ok in WinXp.
5) Codename Eagle - disappearing textures (original and patched version). A real Voodoo2 is ok. NGlide 1.01 and 1.02 - textures are still disappearing.

What was your 2D card for Voodoo2? Radeon HD 2600?

Err, Zeus, what exactly was fixed for F-16 MRF, F-22 L3 and Mig-29 in nGlide 1.03?
Because I can remember only 1 visual glitch in these games - after you fly up to several thousands feets and go to abort mission screen (with the exterior camera, 1-restart mission amd 2- leave mission), bottom portion of the terrain have a strange shading.

Any reason why you're still keeping Croc glitch on your list? Didn't you told me in December you fixed it with game reinstallation?

I have tested Croc with nGlide 1.03. Original and Cyrix versions have blinking glitch/no text in menus.
I will retest all problem games later, after I will finish "M" letter.

F22: Total Air War - the demo flight (TAW demo in the main menu) crashes with nGlide. Nglide 1.02 - crash. Voodoo2 is working ok.
P.S. Attached jpeg is for the patched version of F22: TAW.

1) Ok, it looks like I have understand the method to fix fifa2002.exe - replace 19 89 15 08 05 62 00 23 to 19 90 90 90 90 90 90 23 in an unprotected .exe.
Glide3x renderer is ok.
Glide2x renderer isn't working even with a real hardware - black grass.
Nglide is broken too - very slow, black grass, in-game menu isn't rendered properly (gray area) but you can select/use this menu strings.

2) Zeus, I remember a reason for the World Cup 98 voodoo2a.dll replacement (freezes with a real Voodoo2 or broken textures with nGlide). But what a reason for FIFA 99 and Need for Speed III replacements in your's compatibility list?
I ask because this *censored* FIFA 99 (unpatched, glide2x driver) freezes like World Cup 98 with a real Voodoo2 (mostly after goal) but is working with nGlide w/o any trouble...
