Well one suggestion is to get a Radeon, I could and would be willing to help then because now I don't own a nVidia chipset card. I have everything maxed and running smooth at 1152x864x32 with or without vertex lighting. Impressive!!! Radeon 3d detail is quite frankly very strinking.
I'll try to be polite...I don't really care for any of your opinion's on the radeon, I've made my purchase and am completely satisfied* with it and would not ever consider the Radeon (although i'm sure it's a nice card too), thank you
* completely satisfied EXCEPT for the q3 performance.
It is obviously some setting that is wrong, and not the quality of the card that is causing this.
I am asking for any opinions/advice on the settings for MY card.
Yes, i've tried in low detail and diff settings in the q3a graphics section. But thanks anyway...
You did ask for any suggestions, yes the nVidia guru's should be helping you out vice debating who has the bigger, badder card. Come on you GF2 owners who play QuakeIII, lend a helping post here and take the Radeon VS GF2 debate elsewhere.
I don't have a GF2, just a TNT2. But what Drivers are you useing? And how much have you player with the card settings? Did you try to find a set of optimal settings for your card? Usually found on manufactures web site. What is the manufacturer anyway? Maybe this will info you give will help others help you :-)
DOH stupid me, I must be blind, sorry. Well then all I can say is to keep playing with the settings. One more question, Does this only happen in Q3A? If so It has to be a setting in the game, just a metter of finding the right one.
Swell .I have a V5.And Q111 works just fine.Grafics are great.No problems.I had a GF2 GTS..could not get it to work.When i did,it did not impress me.Even with all the new drivers for it.Sure they are faster,,,,30% at the most which is not enough for me to spend the extra 100$..Voodoo is a tried item,and until a reliable card with no perks is made,im staying right here....Im sure i will burn in hell from these guys or girls,but to bad.........
I used to be running a v3 2000 which is totally under-powered for my system, but I was totally happy with it and never ever had a problem with it, and for 120 CDN , how could you go wrong.
I always got decent fps's with that card, of course with 800x600x16 with everything turned off.
Hey, don't be giving away my secrets anymore allright? Hey buddy, got a lump of money that you can throw my way? ahmmmm my Radeon is ahmmmm just getting a lit-tle b-i-t jer--k-y here a-nd th---ere, yea just a l-i--tt-le bi-t. :smile:
