IIRC Voodoo cards do not have a fully compliant OpenGL implementation, but something that back in the day was called MiniGL. For many games you had to download separate opengl32.dll files which enabled this or that feature, probably mapping it over the Glide functions in some hacky way. Voodoo cards were so well made, that they didn't even fully use the AGP slot they were mounted on; I recall reading a tech article that explained how the card only worked in "PCI mode", meaning that you didn't really use the system memory as an extension of video memory (which is still slower than onboard memory and better if avoided, but still..).

I don't claim to really know all these things, that was what people was saying back when the TNT was still sold, so don't quote me on that.

OKKAY!
