High speed games


I finally got neverwinter nights working on Debian! Unfortunately it's sloooooooooow.

I heard it was possible to speed up games by running them from the command line.. something like

xinit ./nwn or
X && /.nwn

problem is that when I try this I get a command not found error even though I'm running from the /home/viniosity/nwn directory. I've tried the following iterations:

X && ./nwn
X && .nwn
X && nwn

anyone know what I'm doing wrong? I can run it from within KDE without a problem...

bingo!

That did it! The nVidia readme specifically states to remove GLCore and dri from the XF86CONFIG-4 file but when I stuck it back in I was able to type xinit ./nwn and get it working. Thanks for your help!
