Re: ubuntu intel 945GM low framerate

man i'm pretty silly :/ : how to elegantly delete the xorg.conf file, without dealing with permissions... googling it always says i should be very careful with the "rm" command?

so:

Code: Select all

rm /home/leviathan/.drirc
?

Re: ubuntu intel 945GM low framerate

Re: ubuntu intel 945GM low framerate

changing the video format was no big of a change.. at 800x600 i had 42 fps instead of 30. and with the black stripes on the side its not really an option for me but worth trying. i created a xorg.conf file and got totally different lines , see my device section here: Section "Device" ### Available D...

Re: ubuntu intel 945GM low framerate

seems like we have something like a consensus. to sum up the last 3 answers: i need to create a xorg.conf file and write in a statement to disable vsync, at least i could try this. right?! one thing confuses me though: if i create that file like this easy-looking guide http://www.osguides.net/operat...

Re: ubuntu intel 945GM low framerate

when i first come into the duc league it felt like i joined a completely new game. the league experience is in my opinion far superior to public playing. the most important reason for that is of course the interaction with other players. and this is a large subject since i count making friends and d...

ts is right but even more important is to stay at one size.
i think one can only be good in both dodging AND aiming if one uses the same size for a longer time and gets accustomed to it very well.

does a soccer team that runs e.g. 0:3 behind give up?
