Just to let you know that I\'ve heard of the year 2004...

I've been doing two interesting things recently.
1: cl_netfps, a cvar that lets you imitate any lower framerate. You also get the same physics of course. Works well.
2: r_shadows 2, an interesting lighting mode only viable with high end cards. Set it to 2, do a vid_restart, and then fire a rocket. You may want to turn through 180 degrees to see your own shadow. It's a cool feature. Mostly unoptimised though. Later versions might run it considerably faster.
Oh, it\'s also come to my attention that you might require SGIS multitexture with it. GeForce FX cards have this feature disabled, and you\'ll need to set a registery key for it to be enabled. Other cards should have no problems.
