    Phoronix: ET:QW Linux Demo Coming TODAY

    We told you three days ago that the Enemy Territory: Quake Wars Linux demo was coming very soon. Well, we've just received confirmation that the Linux demo client will be available today! A new ET:QW Windows demo update is coming out about noon (CST) and the Linux demo will be out within a few hours after that.

    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.

    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

    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
