Wrapper Performance on Lower End Video Cards

ATI RAGE PRO Wrapper Performance @ GU  

  Wrapper Performance on Lower End Video Cards : ATI RAGE PRO TURBO

XGL200 ver. 0.03a 

XGL200, the Direct3D-based Wrapper by Scott Cutler, performed very well.  Mario 64 gave 12 fps in the standing demo, and roughly 5.5 fps in WaveRace level 1.  Unfortunately, the sky in WaveRace was rendered in black and white, not color, making for a strange, stormy appearance of the game.

Missing floor MGlide 1.246f

MGlide 1.246f, courtesy of Nanotech Software in France, is an up-and-coming Direct3D-based  wrapper with good compatibility. It gave a bit more performance in Mario, with 13 fps in the demo point, but only clocked 5 fps in WaveRace. The WaveRace sky bug was also present.
