quake 3 probs

Hail to the King, Baby!

alright, i have a radeon 9700, and quake 3 used to run like butter, but now that ive installed the 3.9's, it freezes every time i play. Could this have anything to do with turning off fast writes (for Call of Duty) or are the 3.9's just pos's?

I have been hearing about quite a few probs with the 3.9s. With quite a number of different games. I would go back to the 3.7 or 3.8s cuz they where solid, and wait for the 4.0s. They should have all these probs ironed out of them.

I agree. Unless you have a problem with a specific game, I'd stick with the 3.7's.

Quake3 has dll's that are optimized for Nvidia cards (go figure). Somewhere you could download optimized ATI versions

I believe the 3.8/3.9 and maybe even the 3.7 cat's have 16 bit problems with the Quake3 engine.

Of course - Quake3 is OpenGL and the Quake3 engine is almost the only OpenGL game around. It was written during the Voodoo / Nvidia wars somewhere in the timeframe between the TNT 1 and TNT 2.

The best place to go to figure get help figuring this out is right here:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
