Quake Live at 1Ghz, 256Mb

I had been waiting for Tuesday, just out of morbid curiosity. But my bizarre desire to be disappointed will go unfulfilled this time. Here’s Quake Live on the Inspiron, running with half the memory I usually have after one chip went schizo.

That’s Crux, by the way. I expected laggy performance and skipping graphics. But framerates are exceptionally good, although I didn’t find a way to show a number on screen. I’m not a huge first-person shooter fan, but it’s fun to try out.

    No, it doesn’t run on flash. the interface for player settings is flash. The actual game runs just as like any other game, just the launcher is a browser plugin.

    I’ve tried it, but I got an Xorg error, even though I have DRI enabled :(

    Use cg_drawfps 1 to show the frames per second :)

    It’s gone multiplatform? Sweet! Thanks for the heads up.
