22.9.2 and 22.10.5 drivers broke Diablo 2 glide wrapper

Just wanted to point out that 22.9.2 and 22.10.5 broke the glide wrapper I use when playing Diablo 2.  I use Sven's glide wrapper, which I believe translates 3dfx to OpenGL.  I downgraded to 22.5.1 and it is working again.  When trying to play the game (or use the glide wrapper test tool) I'd just get a black screen.  I have a 5700XT

I know it's an old game so it probably won't get any attention, but the glide wrapper makes the game look and play much better, so it would be nice if it could be fixed.  Perhaps there's some other OpenGL issues with the drivers as well.

Hi, I would also love a fix or workaround for this, glide is a MUST with D2.

I can confirm the problem.

Tried with the AMD RX 580 graphics card and Diablo 2.

With 3dfx enabled, I get a black screen on driver 22.11.2.

By downgrading to 22.6.1, it works again.

Please fix.

This is still an issue. I wanted to play some Diablo II but after intro videos there's only a black screen . I was using driver version 22.11.2. Tried upgrading to 23.3.1 but that didn't fix the issue. 5700XT.


try to play around glide3 extension settings. i'm uncheck GL_EXT_vertex_array and black screen didn't come back
