You are correct (of coarse you are you wrote it)
I see the big difference between AUDIO MODE from "Software 3D" to
"Hardware 3D" during game play. (when the audio is being used)
by using "stat fps" in the console I can see the difference and even without the fps numbers flying by I can feel the difference. Software 3D is definitely faster under linux for me. It gives me a good 15-20 more fps.
Linux v2.4.20 custom kernel on Slackware v8.?
