The textures also have that gross old mipmapping pop-in from yesteryear. Oy, I wish normal D3D could work instead of this glide wrapper.
Agreed. It just makes the whole thing look strange. Just played through an entire level with these replacement files, and I just don't like it very much. That wrapper also seems to have negatively affected software mode as well, as the latter seems to look quite a bit better in the version GOG provides. Plus no stretchy and flickering cutscenes.
I appreciate the effort they've done, but it just doesn't work out well for me.
