I remember the game not running on hercules 6MB Voodoo1 cards, and Voodoo2 cards, and there being a patch that limits the amount of memory it adresses fixing it all... Found that patch here: https://soggi.org/misc/3dfx-voodoo-game-patches.htm

I thought it would be in the resources/game patches section, but did not see it there..
Back in the early days the CIC relied a lot on mirrors and other hosting. Not everything made the switch I guess and this patch is pretty specific to certain hardware. Most users who wanted the 3DFX stuff later would just install a glide wrapper. There's not really a lot of issues with WCP performance that really make running it on original hardware a better experience. Given all that, it doesn't totally surprise me that this patch fell through the cracks.

The file linked from there isn't unzipping for me, but is it perhaps just a renamed copy of this patch? https://www.wcnews.com/wcpedia/3Dfx_Voodoo_Patch

Thanks, yeah, we have a bit of reconciliation cleanup to do, but I thought we did have that file buried around here somewhere.
