How is Q3A taking advantage of dual CPUs? - DoG - Mar 8, 2003 06:14 AM

Does anybody know? I am wondering because I would like to support multiple CPUs in my engine, but I wonder how it is done efficiently. Telling me its multi threaded wont help, I need to know how they divide the work.

This was answered very recently in another thread on these boards, by a quote from Brad Oliver originally posted to IMG's boards.

Understand that Q3A is not open-source, so the only people who know will be engine licensees.

I know q3a is not open source, yet there should be some info on the basic design of the engine.
