1. SMP support Jul 29, 2003, 10:34 EvilJohn
The reason you don't find much about SMP games is that there really aren't any. Q3 is the most notable, but even enabling support, the difference in framerate is negligible.

Generally, a game is limited by how fast the video card can push out data. Display APIs are single threaded in nature, so threading out the data isn't really helpful.

12. You know... Jun 22, 2001, 16:36 EvilJohn
... it doesn't seem like it's been 5 years. When I think about video games Quake seems like a relatively new one to me.

Still, no game has had the effect of Quake. It did change things, for everyone. Quake is the reason we're sitting here now, and while I'll be sitting with 1300 of my closet friends in Mesquite in August.

I'll always be Grateful of what these guys did, and continue to do.
