I ran in ogl for weeks and it was hella fast, except online. Then I saw a tweak that said to change min fps to 0 everywhere it was listed. Running normal textures (world high though) and hiding the gun, I tired d3d and it was no slower, and the lows were even higher, especially online. Have mouselag on and it's fast enough like this that I haven't even tried turning it off yet. Try some of the map packs, opengl on some of those maps is much worse and looks worse than d3d. I'm a convert hehe.
Oh, and I have no anis or AA on. This is now almost running like Q3 ran for me when I was playing that ALL the time (with a voodoo 5 more than a year ago, laff).
