    My results with the demo were not good with a AGP x1600xt running in PCI mode haha, and no the 8.41 driver doesn't work for me, plus, it wouldn't save me anyway due to the PCIE-AGP bus issue. Basically, the demo loaded up, I went with minimum settings at 640x480 because I already knew I was doomed due to the drivers situation.

    So I loaded up the demo map, and I was suprised how bad minimum detail really looked in this game haha. I was running at about 10 fps. I was going to take a screenshot but when I did, it hardlocked my system. So if 8.42 is any better, and fixes my issues, I will post my results here on the day the driver comes out.

      Btw. when you have got a good behaving ATI card, you just stop kdm, gdm or whatever you use, then

      rmmod fglrx

      and install other fglrx driver. After that start kdm/gdm again and it works. Only on my new system that does not work... When you switch from standard driver you do instead:

      rmmod radeon drm

      The same trick works for switching nvidia drivers, there you do of course:

      rmmod nvidia

        So how does one measure FPS on linux.Does ETQW have a integrated benchmark or do you use something like FRAPS?

          Well look at my post here:

          http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showp...5&postcount=17

          to use a timedemo or to show current fps you can use:

          +com_showFPS 1

          as startup option or you press ctrl+alt+~ and enter just

          com_showFPS 1

          in the console. A similar thing is possible for UT, there you press TAB and then

          stat fps

                i've seen all this before but current fps doesnt help me calculate avg fps unless its logged somewhere. I did a timedemo and seems to play in between 20-65 fps 1680x1050 at max settings, no AA. Playing against the PC fps are a bit lower. dunno about online yet. I'll try on windows later. thanks for the help anyway

                          I didn't get the FPS monitor to work, but my x1900GT runs at my monitor's native 1600x1200 with the 8.42 drivers, medium quality and it's certainly very playably smooth, so I guess over 30.

                          I'm just happy that there is a new, good Linux game out there and that my year-old GPU is more than up to the task with my relatively large monitors.
