has instructions on how to enable 3Dfx/nGlide rendering if it doesn't automatically launch with nGlide; remember to launch the game using space.exe when doing so; if you use Tachyon.exe (the game's launcher) it will reset the game to use Direct3D). Winetricks
: None needed. (I did use UseGLSL=disable to boost performance, and directplay to clear up some errors in my wine log.) How Well Does It Run
: Excellently, at 1280 x 800 widescreen resolution using 3Dfx through nGlide Despite the graphics hardware on my test machine being underpowered, the game runs very well with all of the graphics options turned up.
Under Direct3D rendering, the game lags a bit at 1024 x 768, with some minor cosmetic graphics gliches (e.g. texture flashing on the rings in the Ring Training Course). Enabling CSMT caused some severe input lag. Enabling the Native Mac Driver led to the game's graphics being inverted.
Joysticks are fully functional in the game as well; it even detected and made full use of my MadCatz V.1's throttle control.
