I couldn't find a trace of any wrapper on any of the drives I have in my PC atm. Maybe I can find some time to install some of my old hard drives (not likely to happen untill after the weekend though) and see if there's anything left there.
Also, a quick google search for 'glide wrapper' turned up quite a lot more than 2 wrappers.

what vidoe card/cards do you use
the old 3dfx cards (voodoo/2/3) came with glide wrapper drivers that work with d2 flawlessly
check your video card drivers and see if any are available

Mmmmmm I remember how awesome this game ran on my old old system with a Voodoo 3/2000. That must have been like 3 or 4 systems ago I finally have Direct 3d working somewhat well with a 7600gs, but will be watching this thread closely...

I have used a Glide Wrapper in the past, the one I used was giving me some problems but I could definitely see improvement in the quality of the image. It's not only good for older computer, as mine is relatively new. As far as I could gather around, many people are of the opinion that the game seems to have been more properly coded in in Glide then in Directdraw. It would certainly make some sens since Glide was the "Thing'' when the game was under development. Back then 3DFX was an important player in the graphic card industry and they were relying on this technology.

Using glide was supposed to provide better textures and performance.
However , using a wrapper for some time i didn't notice any significant improvement in performance or quality of textures :( .
Seems it would get the job done on lower end machines though?
