hi,

i'm trying to get doom 3 to run on my system
Code:

athlon 800 MHz
384 Mb SDRAM
GeForce 4 MX 440 64 Mb SDRAM
2.6.8-rc2-love3 with alsa
xorg 6.8 (~x86 system)

i have no sound or image issues(installed with ebuild), everything works fine except for the low framerate.
i'm playing in 640x480 and lowest setting(and it still looks so good), i also disabled shadows and enabled vsync.
it's kinda playable, in small rooms i get +-40fps and bigger rooms are quite ok +-20fps.
but when i encounter enemy's the framerate drops very fast to a minimum of +-7fps.

anybody know some tweaks for improving the framerate( in general and in fights)?
maybe a good DoomConfig.cfg for very slow machines?

grtz

I think there's nothing to do, except getting new hardware ;)

Try some of the things mentioned here:

If that doesn't help, then there's not much else you can do.
