Slows forums, very... much ... so... must ... type ... faster
Picked up an AMD XP 1900+ yesterday, installed, and played JO. MY recorded times for loading:
Cold initial level load: 27.3 seconds (previous 33.2 sec)
Warm load: avg 15 seconds (previous 19.4 sec)
So changing my processor from AMD 1.333 to AMD XP 1900+ helped in changing the times. Again this is still with everything set to high, shadows to simple, 1024x768x16, and GL Extensions off.
Warm load was an average of all my death re-loads, for I never got the same time twice. They were roughly the same but not quite.
