RC,

My FPS went up from an average of 24 to 50 or so in version 1.5

Was the code optimized that much?

Don't know - I'd have to ask Tom.

swisher - I doubt it. What's in your system? Are you running with the exact same settings?

Same settings -- exactly. Godly PC configuration (dust at 25%, though).

Another thing:

On JL's server last night, supposedly many of the textures we were seeing were only available as add-ons. A radar dish, for example. I have not placed anything into my addons folder for 1.5. Did LDA place all of the textures for all of the known mods on the CD before cutting it?

None of the textures on JL's server were added. All were default textures...just not necessarily used ways you normally see them

As for the speed of your frame rate there are a few options that aren't available anymore - and that might be the difference (such as S3TC isn't an option anymore).

Still haven't been able to ask Tom though.

Just had a chance to talk to Tom about this:

There have been no code changes to the display system. There is no coding change that could account for the difference you are seeing.
