anyone already tried the 1st UT that came out on a A64 system?

 

i remember a couple yeas (maybe 4 years) ago, my friend who just bought a new A64 Ferrari laptop and I decide to go to a little LAN party at our college.

 

when we got there, they were playing the 1st UT, (1999 i think) and we jump in the fun,

 

at that time i had a XP2600+, with a sucky 9600SE. i was abble to play that game like a charm but my friend with his A64 laptop was playing twice fasat has us, then the game would "pausE" on his laptop.

 

we found that think realy bizarre, its like if the game was "running" in 64bit on a 32 bit OS,.......to slow down the CPU he played in software mode to let the CPU make the graphics ......

 

it was doing that only on his laptop which was the only A64 system in the room.

 

a few month later i bought my A64 3000+ system and we tried it, same thing happen on our both system ... all other system base on non A64 cpu were running the game fine

Wow I remember playing that game on the first pc I ever built.

Intel Pentium MMX 200Mhz

16MB EDO SD Ram

2MB pci video card

Sound Blaster 16 sitting in an ISA slot

400MB hard drive

I dont remember how fast the cd rom was tho.

I still have that game and many others from the mid to late 90's.

Pentium® 90 MHz Processor (133 MHz recommended)

 

A processor speed that now seems like a pretty poor CPU overclock. How quickly things change.

 

Anyone got the specs for the very 1st Quake?
