For some reason, even after a fresh reboot, Gtk 1.2.11 is EXTREMELY slow. Even small maps take extremely long to move around in/edit and 1.2.10 was perfectly fine. It's driving me crazy because I really can't map like that. Suppose I should use 1.2.10 unless someone can help me fix this...

Please help!!!

If you have an nvidia-based graphics card the help files read this:

The key to a satisfactory editing experience is whether your video card supports the demands of the editor. The original id editor was designed for a workstation card called the Realizm, which ran on Intergraph workstations in a WinNT environment. Robert Duffy expanded this to include the Win9x operating systems and a number of other video cards. But not all video cards support the editor equally well.
The G200 and G400 require updated drivers from Matrox
The 3fx Voodoo 3000 chipset requires a driver upgrade in order for the map grids to show.
If the map grids don't appear when using some ATI chip sets, try turning the settings on you desktop up to 32 bit (true color).
Nvidia TNT and GeFORCE have slowdown issues when the user selects curve patches. While this is a driver issue, it can be addressed by checking the "Solid selection boxes" feature under preferences.

I did this and it helped me tremendously.

Hope it helps...

I saw that, but thanks anyway.

I'll try it but I'm not selecting curves- just trying to move around. I'm running a GeForce 4 Ti 4200 64mb

EDIT: Holy crap! That made SUCH a difference! Thanks so much dude! :D
