: I tried the 1024x1024 textures. Very nice. It makes Aleph One cry with
: stress, but it's great. Everything looks like it's bump mapped.

Even though I only have a G4, I have 128 MB VRAM, which is the most imporant factor, after all, and I decided to try the highest-res textures anyway. They really rock, but performance does take a hit. The problem is with loading textures - every time a new texture is encountered, there is a delay while AO loads it. This is a minimal problem with the 512X512 textures, but it is a big issue with the 1024X1024 textures on my 1.5 GHz G4 PB. Although I prefer not to have a long lag time at the start of every level, isn't there some way of making AO automatically load all textures then rather than when encountered? That would make the highest-res textures playable on any machine with 128 MB VRAM without a loss of performance.
