    seta g_nightmare "0"

    Anyone know what that does?

    Btw, are you guys using AF? I find the jagged edges a bit annoying.

    Yeah, but I didn't see any for the other hardness levels. I was thinking maybe more violent or something? That would be nice.

    Well nightmare was the hardest difficulty in Doom 1 + 2, so I still think it has to do with difficulty...

    Actually that's not even remotely true. I have a 9800xt and am running ultra high. Granted, it's at 8x6 but damn does it look beautiful and I haven't seen my fps dip below the mid 20's.

    It's an interesting System Shock clone. I like how they tried at a plot. Despite the fact that the plot is utterly retarded because it involves demons from Hell, it's still nice that they tried, and it definitely adds to the atmosphere. The gameplay does get a bit repetitive, and I find myself having to stop after an hour or two of it because it just gets boring, but I keep coming back :D

    Using Fraps to record framerate, and following a designated path both times, the difference between seta image_cacheMegs "20" and seta image_cacheMegs "256" was consistently within a 2-3% range, favouring both settings at different times. If anyones interested, I can send them the fraps logs. Just send me a PM requesting them.

    System Specs:
    AMD Athlon XP 2400+@2.2 ghz
    1 gig memory
    Radeon 9800 Pro

    If anyone has more success with this, it would be interesting to see what component in their computer is related to the potential increase.
