Question Performance matters....

OK... I'm setting up a friend's computer (one I'm very likely to steal ) and I'm noticing some Q3A performance... thing's capping at around 90-93 FPS!

Now the other thing I noticed with the Nvidia driver (queried through /proc/driver/nvidia/agp/status) is that fastwrites are disabled even though I have it turned on in the BIOS!

System info (relevant):
Soyo Dragon KT333 Ultra motherboard
GeForce 4 Ti4400

Lightbulb Forgot to mention something else

Resolution does matter here, neither do the amount of texture quality.

Quake 3 performance I can probably answer. Go into the q3config.cfg and there should be a line that reads:

seta com_maxfps "85"

Just change the number to whatever suits you.

For Fast Writes, add a line to /etc/modules.conf looking like options NVdriver NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1

Then either exit X, remove your NVdriver module from memory, and restart X, or just reboot.

Fast Writes may cause stability issues, so if you see lockups or something, try disabling them first.

If you want to enable SBA (side-band addressing), you can change the options line to options NVdriver NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1 NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 for that.
