It had a) better run on my gfx card and b) be a good game.
I think a) is statisfied as I finally retired my shitty GeForce 2 MX for a low-end GeForce FX 5200. I picked it up second had for a tenner, so although it's a crappy card - it's better than the GF2MX and had shaders.
I'm looking to get into GLSL, so some book recommendations would be nice ;)
I submitted the GM article to the ERB; I'm already planning a 'sequel' - 'Advanced GameMonkey Script' which goes into the stuff that I missed. I've been bitten by the article bug lately ;)
