I still don't know how you do it... I got everything cranked up with a G5 2gHz and a Radeon 9600 128MB. I think BZFlag is outputting the wrong FPS. :P

You said your highest FPS before this was 50. Maybe when your Mac got reinstalled, Jaguar doesn't report the right FPS?

What are your settings? I got a G5 too, but I don't get that.

altthough your fps might be good (i only have 40) i dont understand how you can dodge with such radar???? You hardy see the bullets.. :) and its impossible to dodge in close fights (or only with much luck)

all depends on the graphics card. it goes like this:
Free space + neat graphics card - 3D enhancement * 4 . pretty complicated, but the closest guess to the right FPS number I have ever been.

People with linux have reported high frame rates, between 200-300.

On windows and Mac it is usually much lower, between 50-100 average.

You can try to reduce the colordepth in the options setting. Before I had between 30 and 100, now i have between 90 and 130.

Most resolutionxcolordepth setting however slowed it down even more, i found one setting that actually improved it, the one below the maximum colordepth.

since the sampling of mouse movements depends on the framerate, a bigger FPS may improve your game performance, if you have a radar that is actually usefull:)

Somewhere I heard that your brain can only distinguish up to 40FPS... and anything above that will look the same.

I thought it was 60fps.

I never get over around 150 fps on my Windows machine. My only current Linux machine can be seen in another thread in this forum. ;)
