I just listen to music or talk on here. (I'm actually compiling a map right now)
forum troll/play with server stuff
I usually leave my PC alone and play some Advance Wars on my gool ol' GBA
My compiles last 1 minute and a half, so there's not much to do.
Usually listen to music on winamp, or goin to the toilet.
Can't do much because it slows down the computer by around 95%.
And also it only takes around 10seconds - 2minutes (a bit less if I turn of VVIS) to compile, so it's not like you get much time to do something.
Running vrad alone takes 13 minutes... I think I have done something wrong
But vbsp and vvis are quite fast, so I think it's my lightmap-size ^^
But in the 15 minutes of compiling, my pc is unuseable (due to the heavy compile load of 100% per core), so that's the time my gaming handhelds strike back.
If I touch my computer while it's compiling, everything asplodes and Hammer crashes. It's always been like that, and this laptop is pretty good as well.
So I just go get something to drink or eat, go to the toilet, play some random DS game...
I just sit behind my computer waiting till it's done.. Because I only have 1 minute (maximum) to check everything in TF2 after the compile before my computer crashes
I can play TF2 at 22 FPS while my map is compiling
yes but how long do your compiles take, also, 22 fps is pretty hard to play on....
22 FPS is a very acceptable frame rate while my processor is at 100%. My compile takes 1 minute and a half (actual compile) no matter what I'm doing on the PC.
Also I don't mean to play while compiling. I test my map on local server, that's what I meant
You test it whilst compiling it... I'm sensing a paradox there...
I test, then I compile and run around the map. No paradox
As someone with an old machine and low framerates, I can say that framerate really only effects playing difficulty when it gets down to around 10.
pish posh. I found it was incredibly easier when my framerates jumped from ~35 to ~130
anyhow /thread hijack
I whine about my low video card which i get ~30 fps with :|
LOL, I play TF2 at <20 FPS in general.
For a generally complete map, compiles for me are anywhere between 20-60 minutes, so I either do some school work, make something to eat or watch some 24 (which I am officially 4 hours behind on...) since my computer becomes unusable.
I browse the internets because I use VBCT which doesn't turn my PC is a sluggish POS.
FUCK YES ADVANCE WARS
I practise mah ukulele
