Quake II test Question
How do you pull up the option for the frame rate screen?
Just got the Quake II Demo from PC-Gamer.
Can't figure out how to pull down the frame rate screen while playing the game to see what I am running at.
Are you sure you mean Quake2? I dont think there is a screen like that. However, if you go into the console and type "timerefresh" it will give you a reading.
Or in console type: "timedemo1" and Enter, then "demomap demo1.dm1 (or demo1.dm2) and Enter" it will run a time demo and give you the framerate - this way is more accurate, but you cant do it while playing.
I got the Timedemo1<enter> to work and it played a demo about 5 times before I stopped it. Average FPS 74. As for all the other commands...failed to recognize them.
That sounds like what it should have done. If you just time timedemo1, <enter>, then get rid of the console, it just loops one of the timedemos over and over, but no fps reading. I got the quotes wrong the 1st time, (****, and I typed ".dm1" - sorry)
so I just wanted to make sure:
in console typeimedemo1 <enter>
demomap demo1.dm2 <enter>
it should start running a time demo, and just run it once, with a fps reading at the end.
for a different demo, its: timedemo1 <enter>
demomap demo2.dm2 <enter>
Sounds like timerefresh must have worked, tho - 74fps sounds like something it would give you - it tends to give you more fps than the demo's. Its good, tho - if you got that running demomaps, well - wow.
Hope that helps

The only thing I can get working is
any other command isn't recognized?
running version 3.14 quake II demo
am I missing something here.
even downloaded massive and crusher demo's
put them in the demo folder as the directions said etc. etc.
still can only get the timedemo 1 to work

I downloaded the demo so I could check if it was different (cable ) It is, I'm afraid. The only thing I got to work was the "timedemo 1" - the demo loop - and the "timerefresh" command. Timerefresh only works if you're playing a game, not if you're watching the demo that starts with Q2.
The demo maps didnt work at all, tho. It couldnt find them, and neither could I when I looked in explorer. Probably in one of those pak files. I'd say that the demo that loops when you do the "timedemo 1" in the demo is pretty accurate, tho. At least its within 1 fps of what the full version timedemo gives me - 57.6 fps in demo, 58 in full. Thats close enough.
And incidently, timerefresh in the demo gives me 60 fps if I do it right where you start the demo.
You should get the full version, anyway Its probably cheap by now, and tons of fun to play online...unless, of course, you're waiting for Q3A to come out.
