I don't know if I remember, but was there a way to get the glide effects to work on Wing Commander Prophecy? I tried searching 3dfx and glide but i am not finding much on the boards, unless i am searching wrong.

There is an inofficial patch that adds some of the effects of 3dfx to D3D. Should be in the file section or on my homepage:

And of course there is the OpenGL driver (that Popsicle posted) that delivers a whole new graphic experience.

The D3D lens flares do have texel alignment issues if I recall correctly (or is this a different patch).
If it works for you the OpenGL patch I would hope is the best option. It may not, a more reliable patch may be on the cards if I ever find 5 minutes to myself (...that's a very big if).

Pete that version of the patch isn't compatible with the DVD movies, wasn't there a release which was?

Ooh, i remember this from 1997, on a rage128pro card, in the documentation it specifically mentioned prophecy and a solution for it(the appearance being artifacts in the distance and a crosshair within the flairs. Did not notice it using the current OpenGL driver.

I remember back in the day with my Direct 3D. There were extra lines all over the place in my HUD. The OpenGL patch makes everything look very nice. I love the transparent HUD effects.
