With that said, you are free to experiment if you so desire, just don't expect any problems to be investigated, etc.
To be honest, I don't know of any Glide Wrapper that supports all the features of Glideł that I use. I vaguely remember one being developed that started to support the necessary features/functions, but can't remember the name nor remember how far progressed it got. I am not being dismissive of them, I genuinely can't remember
Glide Wrapper's are perfect for when there is only Glide support in an application, and no native support for your card.
Bottom line is
- you are much better off using Pete's OpenGL or D3D plugins for your card, because they talk to your card natively rather than having to go through a layer of emulation (which is what the Glide Wrapper is essentially doing). I programmed my plugin with 3dfx cards in mind (which is how Glide works), and that doesn't necessarily fit well with how other manufacturer's cards are designed.
