[SOLVED] Realtime World Lighting?

#1
Hi guys,

I get a huge fps improvement when I disable Realtime World Lighting. My question is: does it actually make things look better? Also, does Xonotic utilise more than 1 gpu/cpu core?

Thanks,

Cam

Yes, realtime world lightning does make the maps that have them look better. However, I have to friendly warn you, you're spamming the forum.

Realtime World Lighting means using the engine and not the compilers for lighting. While you can get high quality light and shadows out of it, most maps aren't optimized for it (AFAIK).

It improves the look of things quite a bit, but you can get more frames per second if you turn it off. As for multi-core support I don't think Xonotic knows how to utilize more than one CPU, though the development team has surprised me before.

Xonotic sure can use multiple GPUs in a SLI arrangement. Games need no specific support for that.

As for multiple CPUs: the SDL executable does sound in a separate thread, which gains about 5% to 10% CPU power. Also, at least nvidia drivers do offload some OpenGL driver work to an extra thread. Other than that, the game is not multithreaded.

Gibs are primarily GPU bound Tongue multithreading wouldn't help them.

I really love all the blood and body particles! Especially in minsta, and the with cl_decals 999 Big Grin

After a match the whole map is then one big blood pool, and all walls are black of the shots, it requires a good computer, but that looks awesome!
