Rumor has it that a UB version of W:ET won't happen.  I don't know if that's true or not.

Tryed it but it does not really strike me, although W:ET is not really my cup of tea either so I would not take my word for it.

The framerate is really weird it goes from 10fps-40fps a lot and all I am doing is walking through the level with nothing going on.

Tried it out for a bit... yeah, the frame rate's choppy but that seems to be more so in the beginning of playing... it smooths out after playing for a tiny bit—editing the allotted memory, etc. is also recommended by the developers in the installer text and I hadn't done that yet—next time should be smoother.

The end users could benefit from a bit of clarification insofar as what folders/directories to select when installing/first-runs so everything goes smoother... took a re-install and trashing some prefs to get it working where it launches TCE instead of ET which is what constantly happens if the ET folder is selected the first time around rather than the main Wolfenstein folder... oh well, pretty fun though...


EDIT:   I doubled the numbers defaulted in tcetest/autoconfig.cfg and the game/mod loads and runs a lot smoother now!  ...can't wait to get the dual CPU upgrade for my MDD though! =)  Edit that file—highly recommended!
