Re: [vox-tech] GL chunking problems

damn, you never say everything you meant to get out.   ok, a few notes:

for an 800MHz celeron with a 3dfx V5, you should be getting more like
600-700, i believe.

the output of glxgears (aside from the fps) will be helpful.

how are you running half life?   win4lin, i thought, doesn't do *any*
direct X.  i thought that only wine, winex and rewind can do half life.

also, how are you running hexen II?   AFAIK, there aren't any ports of
hexen II to linux.  i hope i'm wrong!   :) :) :)
