    Frame rate

    When playing games such as Quake II, how do you know or measure the frame rate of your video card. Is there a program to measure it ?

    Nope. It's actually already in a lot of games. In Quake II, to get an instantaneous frame rate, go into the console and type "timerefresh" (minus quotes of course). To run a timedemo (much more accurate), go into the console, type "killserver", type "timedemo 1", then type "map 'name of map'.dm2". Ex: map demo1.dm2. This will run the demo1 demo included in Quake II. This demo isn't very good for getting accurate benchmarks. To get a good estimate of how low your framerates are getting, go to www.voodooextreme.com/3Fingers/ and download the crusher.dm2, and put it in your baseq2\demos directory, and run it. If you get above 25fps, you've got a great video card!
