    Has anyone else had trouble running DM-Baths smoothly? I don't typically have trouble running any levels but this one seems to be an exception. Actually the only other level that I've noticed hiccups on is DM-Absolute Zero. I'm guessing it is just too many polys dragging my system down but I'm not sure. I should have enough horsepower. I'm running a 1GHz P3 with 512MB of RAM and a 64MB GeForce 2GTS.

    Anyone else run into this?

    I will try and do a frame analysis to be sure but I am thinking at times my framerate drops to 10 or so.. maybe in the teens. All I know is when I try and play it I'm bot fodder. The sluggishness doesn't seem to affect their aim any. Unfortunately.

    I'm experiencing problems in the level dm-parking. When i stand in front of the garage, framerate drops. A huge drop.
    :( shame though. I'm playing on 800x600x32, high wordl detail, medium skin detail etc..
    p3 800, gf2 mx and 256 ram. Most levels run fine.
    DM-falkenstein is a memory hog. :I

    Ps look up the following level on nalicity:

    dm-futurestadium.
    I wonder if your rig will be able to handle that level...

    Framerates

    Well I tried DM-Baths again and it still sucks like I thought it would. :) My framerate started around 60 and went straight down to about 16.5 and hovered there.

    I tried Futurestadium. Started at 140 and went down to about 80-85 and stayed there.

    DM-Parking started at about 70 and stayed between 55-60 no matter where I was.

    I couldn't get Falkenstein so I'll have to try it later.

    I'm running 32-bit 1024X768 with everything turned on in OpenGL using S3TC.
