Horrific Quake3 framerate
Hi all, I just got quake3 running on my slackware 10.0 *nix box just now thanks to one of the threads on this very forum. Basically it said to copy the installed quake3 files to the linux system and just download the linux 1.32 patch (for the linux executable) and that was it. Worked like a charm, excluding the fact that I had to install the patch again because there was a mouse problem which only version B of the 1.32 patch addressed.
My current situation is, while quake3 runs fine, the framerate is unstable and the game itself, almost unplayable. I've enabled the framerate display and its constantly flickering. The most notable number is 90, but you can see evidence of 100 and unfortunately, 20, 40 and some others as well. It never seems to stay on one range, just randomly chooses framerates.
I was wondering if anyone had similar problems and if so, any suggestions on a fix?
Thanks in advance.
