  |   advanced setup:                                                 |
  |                                                                   |
  |   . in display properties, advanced, geforce 3 set:               |
  |     antialiasing mode to 2x or quincunx (much more important      |
  |     than higher res)                                              |
  |     refresh sync to on by default                                 |
  |     gamma correction: the demo is very bright already             |
  |     so > 1 gamma is seldom needed.                                |
  |     on tfts a lower gamma (.8 or .9) may look nicer.              |
  |     resolution higher than 640x480 is only recommended if you     |
  |     have a geforceFX, it                                          |
  |     is much better to use lower resolution with fsa on.           |
  |     if you have a 128mb gpu ram card, you can try the "only       |
  |     bumpmaps compressed" texture                                  |
  |     detail for higher quality. (maybe some jerks between some     |
  |     scene switches though)                                        |

  .                                                                   .
        . why does it load so slowly?

        blame the demo size limit. what has to be done is to first
        lossles decode all data, then to lossy decode it,
        and then (in case of textures) to tranform and process
        them and then again to encode lossy in a graphics card
        format. ideally for fast loading one would store textures
        only lossless packed in the graphics card native format
        but then you would be looking at a 150mb rar file. also
        unpacked geometry data is around 20mb. so except for an
        apology and pointing to a too small size limit of 12mb there
        is nothing to be done about it.
            
        .  why does it require a geforce 3?

        the bump mapping requires vertex shaders, and those are only
        supported in hardware on geforce 3 or later cards. also
        we use 4 pass multitexturing, n*m textures, 8 stage
        register combiners and other extensions only available on those
        cards. it does not run on a geforce 4 mx or go because nvidia
        screwed up the naming of those cards and they are
        actually just gef 2 cards when looking at the specs. we do
        not support ati cards as all the rendering is done via
        opengl and ati does not provide the same extensions as
        nvidia. and we do not have an ati card so we could not put a
        different code path in for them.  
  
        .  why did you not use direct x so the demo is compatible
           with ati cards too?

        i dislike the direct x api, and i am used to the nice
        open gl one. also direct x tends to be slightly slower in some
        situations. 

        .  what cool buzzwords can i use describing the rendering?

        per pixel lighting, bump maps, specularity maps, detail maps,
        light maps, special shaders, embm, fsa. and any other
        you like. the word mole tends to work very well as a buzzword, too.

        .  why is the sound encoded so low?

        again, file size limit for a demo. we just had to squeeze
        it into the memory available. blame the organizers for 12 mb
        size limit. maybe we will do a high quality update pack with
        uncompressed textures audio and gemoetry.
