    Guess it's a matter of perspective....

    I agree with what you're saying, but testing with the demo only might give a skewed benchmark.

    A nod's as good as a wink to a blind man. I'll find something else to occupy my time until then, thanks.

    dir demos

    to show recorded demo names

    timeNetDemo demo_00000

    to time first demo. All is stored in

    .etqw/base/demos/

    of course you can use

    etwq +timeNetDemo demo_00000

    to execute it directly.
    Yes, I am familiar with all of that. But for benchmarking the different maps, etc I spend a lot of time deciding the map(s) and scene(s) to use for the actual demo(s) that will become standard for Phoronix benchmarks in ET:QW.

    No question about it... Just waiting for the full binary release for timedemo capabilities.
