I was curious, how do you get Quake III Arena to run the demos to tell you what the fps was after the demo is finished? Its been done probably 1000 times in all the benchmarks in the CPU and Graphics Guides but they've never said how you get the fps number from Quake III.
Type timedemo 1
Type demo demo001

If you want to compare to others you need to do the test with sound disabled. To do this create a link/shortcut to the Q3 executable. Add "+set s_initsound 0 + set cd_nocd 1" to the end of the target string, without the quote marks.
