I have a Windows 98 SE system where I am running Quake v1.06.
Pentium 3 1000mhz (133mhz bus)
Voodoo3 3000 16mb
Sound Blaster AWE64 Gold
When I run quake.exe from within Windows 98, the timedemo demo1 test gets about 37fps. However, if I run quake.exe from pure DOS mode (not DOS while Windows 98 is still running), I only get about 15fps.
I swapped in a newer ATI card and got 30fps in Windows 98 and only 14fps in pure DOS.
I would expect Quake to run faster in pure DOS as it is a DOS game.
Any idea what is going on here? If so, is there any way to fix it?
