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.
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)

Okay, this makes me wish I could still play BZ even more...but I can't do to that stupid bug (which no one is helping me with)

I have a G4 ibook. I'm used to FPS in the 50's I guess, but I have had over 125...

(title of post)
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:)

it is useles to have 300 fps today but in some years...

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.
