    HSR=Hidden Surface Removal.

    When the surface cannot be seen, there is no need to render it, leading to increased frame rates.

    Unfortunately, the HSR thing only works in Quake 3, for some reason. And it's beta. And it only works well in low resolutions. (Up to about 800x600.) Guess that would enough for those of us who play in lower res with 4x FSAA, but I'd really like to see it support all games, not only Q3A. (Heck, I don't even play Q3A.)

    it's a start at least, maybe they'll extend it to other games later. It's still onle Beta after all
