All of this was tested using the Shareware Demo v1.01.

Performance

Around 40 frames per second at 800x600. On Linux performance is almost identical, but suffers big slowdowns when there are a lot of simultaneous sound effects.

Essential configuration

WINDOWS: If the demo doesn't want to install, just extract the contents with 7zip and then execute the extracted Setup.exe file.

Once the demo is installed, delete the file Video_3DFx.dll. If some error messages appear ("sgl.dll file not found" and stuff) don't worry, just ignore them.

LINUX: Don't delete the Video_3DFx.dll file, instead download this Glide Wrapper and install it. Then the demo should start without any problems.

Settings

WINDOWS: Maximum details, 800x600, any 3D Card Adapter.

LINUX: 640x480. Though if you want to play at 800x600 open the "Data/config.ned" file with a text editor and change the following line:
Acclaim\Turok\Video3Dfx\800^x^600 1
Obviously, change the other resolution that has the value "1" to "0" (Probably it's 640x480)

Don't forget to configure the controls using keyboard and mouse, WASD for movement and non-inverted "Y Axis Looking".

Issues

The map doesn't show at all:

SHOULD YOU PLAY IT ON A NETBOOK?

YES
Performance is very good (but not that good on Linux).
The most important thing, it's an awesome game.
