I second this suggestion.
It is also interesting when creating custom content for the game, or simply running the game in its native resolution without stretching the screen.
dgVoodoo is the only glide wrapper supporting this so far.

So has there been offered any solution to this yet :?: I find windowed mode helpful, too. That'd be cool.

For now you can use D3D Windower + nGlide.

First of all thank you Zeus for making and supporting this incredible glide wrapper! Just wanted to add my name to the list of those who'd love to see it support windowed modes. Have you given any more thought to it by chance?

I'm still very against it. You may not know this, but Glide is full screen API.
This means games weren't designed well for windowed mode. About 15% of all Glide games crash immediately or when loosing window's focus (yes, tested all of them).

So, don't wait for this feature. Use D3D Windower if you must.

Ok thanks. For some reason I thought Glide 3 supported windowed modes. Seems like I recall that being a selling point for the Voodoo 5 cards. Could be remembering it wrong though. :)
