Bit of an odd thought/idea.
« on: September 30, 2013, 12:30:37 pm »
This might seem like a somewhat dumb idea, but with the fact that there's an enhanced version of DOSbox that can be built to support GLIDE-accelerated games.. how feasible of an idea would it be to add a Voodoo2 card just for running those while allowing everything else to run off the Radeon 6670 (especially MAME via Calamity's and Ansa89's patches)?  I know that anything for Windows that uses GLIDE would probably need a wrapper lik nGlide or similar.
It doesn't matter how bad things are, it'll work out in the end.

Dosbox emulates glide, (voodoo 1)it doesn't need a voodoo card for that, at least that's what i make of it.
I don't think dosbox supports Voodoo 2.
Maybe it is better to set up a dedicated retro pc for that.
I am setting up a pentium 3 pc for that, with a Ati 9600 and a voodoo 2 (that is if i ever find the time).
