ok i was at frag fest this summer. this awesome guy i met there, Psychotron, had his q3 graphics turned waaay down through the console. walls and **** were pink/brown, etc. i was wondering how to do this, esp to help with people's fps lag in FF TFFA.

Not sure, the only way I know how to turn down graphics is by going under options and then video....

also if you run an nvidia card and det drivers turn off AA, Anisotropic filtering and set it to "Best Performance" under the Intellisample settings.

I know people do it to increase their FPS, but I've never seen the point in it myself. I'd rather enjoy the graphics and suffer some lag than play in a pink level....

*shudders at the thought*

But then, I don't play to win, just to enjoy...

I don't know the cvar, but it's something like r_texturelodbias or something of that sort. The settings in the detail menu only go so low, anything after that is pretty much pointless. You can override it in the console, but like I said, it won't offer a significant performance boost. Resolution and geometric detail usually have the largest effect on performance. Texture resolution only speeds things up if you have insufficient video memory. As long as you've got 32 MB of video RAM, you'll be fine on the detail to high settings.
