i am confused!!
ok, with my diamond stealth3 S540 i had to play halflife at 640x480 or lower, 640x484 was really choppy, so one day when i had nothin to do i set halflife at 800x600 AND MY FPS WAS MUCH BETTER!!!!!! now i dont understand that at all, and i was wondering if someone knows why?
I'm guessing it has something to do with S3's mystery drivers. Ya never know what's gonna happen with em..Q3 is Super fast..Q2 goes slower??? WTF!! Just my imagination?
Most all 3D card drivers are optimised for 800x600
Thats all there is to it.... optimising makes a hell of a difference....
this is also shown with AMD optimised versions of games
