I’m using ioq3 on FreeBSD, since native q3 x85 crashes with sig11 on amd64, even when run in compat/i386.
But I’m getting very low fps: around 60-80. I’m starting ioq3 under KDE, with nice -10 (latter doesn’t improve fps at all).
My videoboard is GeForce GT210, which is, of course, a total piece of crap, but it’s still more powerful than the boards I used to play in mid 2000s. And still 80-80 fps. Sometimes I get 125, but I just cannot figure out what affects it.
Still, 125 is way too low. I tried to set the com_maxFPS to 333, and com_busyWait to 1, but com_maxFPS seems to be hardcoded to 125, because I can only lower it, and it just doesn’t go above 125. And the com_busyWait isn’t recognized by the console - weird.
So, being short, I want 300 fps. Is this achievable ? I’m playing with vertex, not lightmap, and even with blurred textures. My videomode is 1920x1080.
