unfortunately no my t41p just uses a good old fashioned single core
intel pentium m processor. i'm really going to have to make a point
to try and aquire an mp-capable machine to test all the ports i
have going on. But, then again, ideally i'd have one of everything
we support ;) does renice(8)ing the process of ioquake3 cause the
issue to get any better or worse on mp?
the only reason i ask is for playing urban terror i ended up doing
the following (granted i gave myself passwordless sudo access to
renice, as this workstation is only used by me):
$ cat ~/bin/urbanterror
sleep 3 && sudo renice -n -5 `pgrep -x ioquake3` &
ioquake3 +set fs_game q3ut4 +com_hunkmegs 256 +com_zonemegs 64 $
^i found this to reduce issues with the mod getting fps bombs
during play every now and then, but sound is more or less never
where renice(8) really did seem to make a difference (but not perfect)
was my fceux port. everything 'works' video blit is fast but sound
is rather choppy. i renice that process in the same fashion and it
squashed most of the blips bloops and bleeps (well, the unintended ones,
i realize nes sound is mostly just that ;D)
i definitely didn't see too much issue renicing those processes, as
the only people that should be using these game ports should be those
using workstation-only type setups where there are no other users to
suffer from some jerk running a dri-based game. the game port guy here
will come and strike you with a heavy object for such a thing! keep
those production boxes clean of this crap! ;D
