I tested singleplayer for 30 secs, and it works, good performance.
I had to download a glide wrapper:
I tested this one so far:
run nfs2sea.exe instead of nfs2sen.exe
Now imagine, it wraps glide to d3d and wine wraps d3d to opengl :)
The usual settings have to be changed (e.g. winver to win95)
What does not
I don't know
What was not tested
Multiplayer, longer playing Software mode

The glide version needs a Wrapper in order to work, and updated nfs2sea.exe (found HERE). I'm using dgVoodo with this configuration: RenderAPI: Direct3D9 Display Driver: Direct3D9 HAL Screen Mode: windowed mode D3D Textures bit depth: 32 bits texture options: autogenerate mipmaps LFB access: Enable FSB access (use hardware cache buffers when poss, use fastwrite for unmatching formats) ColorKeying Method: Native Texture Mem Size: 65536KB Resolution: 1024x768 Gamma Correction: 100% Miscellaneeous: force triple buferring, use hardware vertex buffers, enable glide-gammaramp Note: Full screen mode does not work for me with dgvoodo, but windowed mode with the display's resolution, shows the game in fullscreen.
