Quick FPS test

Recommended Posts

Back again, with another demo for people to try out. I'm mainly interested in how well it's running for people so I can gauge how much time to spend up detailing/optimizing. Also need to see what people think of how it looks so far. It's going to be sort of a horror FPS, so I'm shooting for a dark, lonely feel (corpses and blood stains not done yet :D). Requirements: Windows Something that can extract Rar files Get it here (hope the bandwidth holds out): Link Please respond with: Whether it worked (ha!). Was the load time brutal or alright? (very slow loading right now I haven't switched to a binary model format yet) The FPS you got with the visor effect on and off (click mouse). Whether it was too dark/light. What you think of it in general, what was the mood walking around? Known Issues: Long load times Movement around corners of objects is very jerky, trying to figure out cylinder collision by myself and I'm not quite there yet Visor off has a grid over the screen ------------ MSN: nmaster42@hotmail.com, AIM: LockePick42, ICQ: 74128155 "It's all part of the conspiracy of conspirators conspiring to conspire their own conspiracies..."

I get a message dialog saying "display mode not compatible", then the screen goes grey for a few seconds before returning to windows (loading I assume since the log files show models and TGAs where loaded).

sorry bud but on my TNT 2 550 mhz pentium 3 windows 98 comp it was 1. So dark I could not see anything save for a very dim light and 2. the load times were pretty bad but then again I''m used to it and 550 mhz just isn''t the standard for speed anymore =)

Ack I forgot to change the resolution. Sorry for the inconvenience, the link now points to a file that'll run in 800x600 (it's also a bit brighter than the last one).

Yes, it would be nice if it was zipped instead, rar requires that one use non-prefered applications.

The new test versions runs alright. Very dark, and the dark areas at the edge are annoying (human vision is normally peripheral aka widescreen). I also saw the grid lines when not in visor mode.

Running with my normal prefs (which force apps to use 6X Anti-Aliasing and 16X Anisotropic Filtering) I got between 300fps and 600fps depending on if I walked into the next room (difference between 2 rooms and 1 room visible). With my force preferences off it was 300fps faster (600-900fps), and with the visor off it was around 1000-1250fps.
