Why Blue?
Looks like the Murfs village :-D a bit strange, walls use to have pale colours... ;-)

Cool, 15.7 sounds fast

How fast is v1.14 on the same machine?

Yes v1.9, v2.0 an v2.1 are all a bit buggy, best to go with v2.22 which is the one on AmiNet.

Oh wow, I didn't read your post properly the first time, you had particles set to 2000 and you still get 15.7 fps

That's crazy, it should be really slow with that many particles. The old version had particles set to 8 which is the default. Can you do a video of it running on your Amiga with 2000 particles, does it look good?

i've finally had chance to try this out, the latest version on aminet.

timedemo demo1, blizzard 1260 80mhz, ntsc 320x200, full screen but with two levels of status bar, closewb, sound, particles at 250 = 16.2fps (59.7s). Using mmulibs 060 library, muredox, hsmathslibs, blazewcp, copymem060

Great work NovaCoder! M_filter is a great addition, it really improves the feel of the game.

Any chance of some AmiQuake2 optimisations? being able to reduce the screen render size would be very useful to try and get timedemo over 10fps


as a bit of fun, AtariQuake 1.3 on a 95mhz 060 Falcon, 320x200, with much faster ram than an amiga gets 16.4fps. Sound slows the atari down quite a bit and it has more particles (looks like twice 250). With sound off the speed is 17.7fps

Wow 16.2, that's a great result

Any chance of seeing an updated video of it running at that speed?

What's the speed if you drop the particles right down to 8/16?

Not sure I ever want to touch the Amiquake 2 code, that stuff scares me these days LoL

I am going to look at updating my old AmiWolf ports next, have some ideas about making them more interesting

Does Quake support the same commands from the software Quakeworld release. Going back a long time here from when I used to play it big time online (on PC...), we would turn all the detail off to get the FPS as high as possible. Looks a big ugly but might be of interest. A couple which used to help a lot,

d_mipcap

Type: Variable

Syntax: d_mipcap (0|1|2|3)

Default: 0

Description: Detail level.

Values:
0 - High detail level.
1 - Medium detail level.
2 - Low detail level.
3 - Minimum detail level.
d_mipscale

Type: Variable

Default: 1

Description: How much detail objects have.

Values:
0 - Full detail to objects.
1 - Some detail to objects.
2 - Medium detail to bjects.
3 - Low detail to objects.


Can't remember the rest and don't have my old config to hand. Was so serious back then, 4v4 games wouldn't happen if one team had an average ping 10ms less than another, pretty much every key on the keyboard was assigned to a message command to your team mates (linked to a proxy sw which added in your location and stats etc), the old pre voice days with low bandwidth...

This 68k port of WinQuake is hacked silly, I think all of these optimizations have already been done at a software level

The first port of AmiQuake before I started optimizing it only managed about 11 FPS on my overclocked 1260, much faster now

I have Blitzquake and running fine on Vampire, but I love Novacoder stuff.
