Pondering the Imponderable

The Quake 4 Linux demo ran on my box (Athlon XP 1800+, 512M RAM, NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 Ultra). I had all of the settings quite low. I'll try to mess with it some more. It hung up my box with a ton of disk thrashing in the opening cutscene. I assume that's a swap problem. The jury's still out on whether it's worth getting the way it looks.

The Master comments: The initial cutscene did some stuttering on my machine as well (Athlon 64 +2500, 1gb RAM, Geforce FX 5600 Ultra) but I assume that's just throughput limiting on the video card. The game itself plays very well except for a couple of places where the special-effects type stuff bog down the video card. Not sure how much the demo is going to bring those issues out.
