Test setup: Pentium MMX 233mhz, AOpen AP5T, 64mb SDRAM Micron CL2
Blood - 14-15 fps (gameplay with "rate" command, full window, 320x200)
Quake - 13.7* fps (timedemo demo1, default HUD, 320x200)
Doom Shareware 1.9 - 7.5 fps (timedemo demo3, no HUD)
Heretic - 14 fps (observed gameplay, both with HUD and without).
And here's the kicker: observed Heretic performance is much better compared to Doom, both ingame and in broken timedemo loop. But what might cause such difference? Did Raven software applied some secret sauce to the engine?
*Quake fps is also much better compared to Vlask result.
