I am resetting it. I am pretty sure this code is OK - when I measure with
a stopwatch, I get the same timing.

Good advice, I will try it!

I have no problem giving you a copy of the code, but it is not in a state
suited for distribution and pretty embarrising. If you want to have a
look, you can download 
http://www.challenge.dk/~madsdyd/3dse.20000407.tgz (200 KB)

It needs a working GL/GLU (preferable accelerated) and a linux system. It
will try to use /dev/dsp for sound. Most of the display stuff is in

Mind you, the most (90%) of that code was hacked together from 02 AM to 1
PM on last sunday morning (20000402) after I and a friend had been to a
party... It is my first serious try on a game and I am currently rewriting
it, which is why I am offering you the last stable version :-) A lot of
stuff is broken, but the only thing I can't easily explain is the weird
drop in framerate.

Oh, hit c to try the framerate out (IIRC) - otherwise it is in keyboard.c
