    * Enjoy!


    P.S.=> It seems "slower" in some things (when SHADOWING is enabled in the game's configuration & in LARGER/more "open" spaced areas (a constant in IDSoftware games & 'weakness' in them since the DOOM days)... HERE, they seem to have taken a small "hit" here on performance imo so far @ least (but then I have to 'tweak/tune' its .cfg files again possibly for this))

    However, it seems faster in other things vs. the 1.2 SMP patch...

    (& it has a new weapon as well, bonus! Keeping that one 'under wraps/secret' for YOU to find out & see it for yourselves)...

    EDIT PART - I have even downloaded & tried the new WHQL 91.48 Guru3d Drivers posted about in the NEWS section by DarkRide (32 bit model):


    & seem to be working FINE with it also... just a 'side-note'! apk
