Blair Witch II have "glide2x.dll" sting in file triglide.dll, but i can't activate it, some bugs probably, when renaming triglide.dll to tridx7.dll it can be used in game menu, and it detects voodoo, but when entering to game it resets to software mode. hmm

Checked. There are glide2x.dll and sgl.dll dependencies in the original nc.exe.
But the game is software/d3d only. 3dfx and PowerVR aren't used. So technically this game isn't glide.

The patch forces the glide engine... I will ask the patch author about details then will add this game to the "unofficial" list.

What? :shock:

Need to check that even though it's unofficial...


UPDATE:
Holy f..k, it works!

Why did they disable a fully functional renderer? Some kind of shady agreement with PowerVR? Weirdly enough they released Glide version of Ultim@te Race Pro couple months later...
