I ran both timedemos and the results where:

map 1
689 frames, 49.7 seconds: 13.9 fps

map 2
618 frames, 46.3 seconds: 13.3 fps

driver: miniGL no LRU
screenmode: Fullscreen 640x480


u actually find q2 playable at this framerate? wow...!
I actually abandonned the classic-Q2 , and currenlty re-play it on my G4/pegII ... I will try it though on MOS-PUP too to see the difference...  :lol:

My savegames worked OK now! I changed from MiniGL NOLRU --> MiniGL, after that they loaded fine! I loaded the game just after WB had loaded.

I'm using the powerpc.library 16.1beta all the time and ppc memory settings are at 60ns. I put my config in my sig. Gonna try testing the game some more.


AFAIK leaving the memory settings to 60 ns (best option), means "waitstates ON" for both 68K and PPC.

Better to ask for confirmation to Piru.

Waitstates & preloads ON requires 50ns SIMMs, otherwise the Miggy is prone to crashes...

 I have a 60ns SIMM and i have set everything to ON and my system runs stable. Perhaps i have a really good SIMM.

Sorry :crazy:, i meant Waitstates & Preloads *OFF* needs good quality SIMMs or 50ns ones. Maybe i had bad quality because i had crashes when i set PPC memory speed to max.

 *me checks*
 You are right, i think that's what i mean too. I have all waitstates and preloads disabled.

This was the right hint. After cold boot the saved games are loading. After warm boot I get the PowerPC Exception again. No way I´m happy now.

Thank you

Where can i get the 'setmemmode' proggy? Does it make any difference setting the memory from BPPC-menu or with 'setmemmode'?
