Let's do some VIS benchmarking

Setup and execution

All links here point to mirrors at Quaddicted to prevent link-rot.

Download gmsp3.zip and extract it. Make a copy of the gmsp3v2.bsp file.

Download visbjp.zip and extract it. Run

  • Bspinfo.exe -prt gmsp3v2.bsp

This is important: Between each Vis tool you have to restore the original gmsp3v2.bsp file. To do that remove the generated gmsp3v2.bsp file and recreated it by making a copy of the copy you made earlier. If you do not do this, funky errors will happen.

Download wvis_20100119.7z and extract it. Run

  • WVis.exe gmsp3v2.bsp

Download tyrutils-0.5-win32.zip and extract it. Here you find vis.exe in the bin/ directory. Run

  • vis.exe -level 4 gmsp3v2.bsp

If you are on Linux, use tyrutils-0.5.tar.gz . Just make, it will build a binary named vis in the bin/ directory.

And for laughs and nostalgia also run a full-vis with the one single-threaded Vis.exe from the bjp tools.

  • Vis.exe gmsp3v2.bsp

Then add your times and information about your processor to the table below. If you are running with a non-standard frequency, please make that bold. Please add entries ordered by time. The top entry should be the fastest.

* denotes entries where we ran tyrann's vis without specifying "-level 4". It did not use that by default.

WVis always rounds to full minutes.
