I see that everybody's busy discussing gaming hardware in the RB3D thread, so I figured that I might start a new thread to discuss a certain issue I have with the GlidoOS wrapper, version 0.06b12.
The wrapper works fine except for the text. When text is displayed - e.g. chat and status messages - then FPS drop faster than the DOW on a Friday afternoon. When there's several text messages on screen, I experience up to 75% loss of FPS. Text messages are abundant in a furball situation - any furball, even when you are not involved, and any RB3D player here can tell you that furballs have some sort of a magnetic atrtaction... 😉. I think you might want to look into the way text is handled in the Glide wrapper. I think there is room for improvement. 😀
Oh yes, my system specs. Windows XP, GForce 2 GTS with 32 MB RAM running Detonator 22.214.171.124 driver, Athlon 1.4 GHz processor, 512 MB RAM. Anything else you need to know?
