"Good news, everyone!"

FC 00 00 00 0D 00 00 00 80 BA F8 0C 00 00 09 -> FC 00 00 00 0D 00 00 02 80 BA F8 0C 00 00 09. 2 times.
0C 00 00 0D 00 00 00 80 EF BA FC -> 0C 00 00 0D 00 00 02 80 EF BA FC.
All statically linked glide games will detect Voodoo2 PCI on i815 and later chipsets after this hex-editing. Theoretically.

P.S. Battle Arena Toshinden -- works.
Descent II (d2voodoo.exe, 1667 KiB) -- works.
EF 2000 v2.0 -- works.
Screamer 2 (s23dfx.exe, 1272 KiB) -- works.
Starfighter 3000 -- works. The video has the wrong background.
Tomb Raider (tomb.exe, 1114 KiB) -- works.
UEFA Champions League -- works. The installer (install.exe) uses dosglide1x and must be patched too. The video has the wrong background.
VR Soccer '96 (OEM) -- works.
Whiplash -- works.
XCar: Experimental Racing -- works.

Tested with ASUS P4P800 + P4 3.2E (downclocked to 1.6 GHz) + 2 MiB RAM + Radeon HD3850 AGP + Voodoo2 SLI + Audigy 2 ZS.
DOS 7.1 (Win98SE bootable floppy) + Win98SE EMM386.EXE (with NOEMS and I=B000-B7FF) + SCSUCDX + CTMOUSE.
Have used v2_auto.inf environment variables + SST_SLIDETECT=0.

P.S. Games freeze w/o CPU downclocking.

1) UEFA Champions League installer (INSTALL.EXE) uses dosglide1x (is statically linked) and must be patched for the PCI Bus 02 too.
Then copy the CD content to a HDD folder, replace the installer to the patched version, install, replace UEFA3DFX.EXE to the patched version, play.
I have tested the maximal install size only.
