Bij Glide Underground hebben ze het hele verhaaltje over Glide Wrappers (stukjes software die 3dfx's Glide ook op andere videokaarten laten werken) nog maar eens samengevat in 1 artikeltje.
So what exactly is a Glide wrapper? Well, you'll probably have heard of Glide before, it is 3DFX's propriatery graphics API which is used by it's Voodoo range of cards, and not by any other card on the market. Glide lets programmers make spectacular looking visuals with very little hassle, and so it became popular about two years ago due to 3dfx spotting an opening in the market and capatilizing. So, what do you do if you need Glide for a game, but don't want to shell out for a new Voodoo graphics card? You use a Glide wrapper.
