Talk:Engines

From Quake Wiki

This should be a page describing what engines are, how they differ from mods and how to install and use them. Save the promotional listing for automatic wiki categorization.


  • If someone feels like using (the good parts of) http://www.quaddicted.com/engines/engine_comparison.html for this wiki, maybe an engine feature comparison chart similar to the Engine Limits, please go ahead. GFDL is very fine with me, no need for attribution. Spirit 08:39, 25 September 2009 (CDT)
    • Maybe, but I think your data may be out of date or biased... Marcher on Darkplaces for me runs at 250 fps when viewing the large outdoor scene at the beginning (and 600+ fps elsewhere) --Sajt 11:53, 25 September 2009 (CDT)
      • Oh, I meant the actual information about features. And only as part of a base, it obviously focuses on SP. It definitely is out of date for some engines. The tested DP is 2 years old now, it was the stable release back then. The performance on marcher seems to highly depend on hardware, it runs decent now but I still got a drop to ~30fps when first getting out to the open (~90fps after a while, so it's all fine).
