I'm using Glidos "0.07b4". Works best for me. FR's in the 60's on a 256 mB GeForce in 800x600 60 hertz...
One of my other tricks is to re-join the same
Squadron after getting killed...
Glidos, or OpenGLide never worked well for me. When I drew close to the ground or to a cloud layer the textures would tear and go crazy. And framerates were not too good either in a fight, especially over a ground object.
But dgVoodoo has been great. FR's average in the forties. And you're right, I actually bought a Voodoo 5500. It is still in my closet. I haven't had any incentive to install it.
I do the same thing, start a new pilot in the same squadron about a week after I die, but with a new name. I always fly as CO, so I figure it would take a few days for him to get to his new assignment. I usually give myself three tries at a mission. If I still can't get through it, I let my pilot die. I've learned a lot about surviving this way.
Toadvine, you can revive a pilot with CM11. Open your campaign, click on Modify Campaign, and select Restore Last Pilot.
