For Linux users w/ nvidia cards who see low FPS upon TDM start

For those who experience low FPS, or FPS synced to vertical refresh even when set not to, try the following.

Before launching TDM for the first time after logging in to your DM of choice, run nvidiasettings and select 'OpenGL Settings'. Move the slider for 'Image Settings' to any position (& back again if you want). Mine is normally set for 'High Quality', but if I move it to any other setting and back again, TDM then starts with full frame rate.

I used to have to launch TDM multiple times, over and over, until I got full frame rate. Now it works properly every time as long as I make that adjustment before first launching.

This has annoyed me for freaking years. It's the only game I've seen do so, though I haven't launched old doom3 in a long time.

      When I was a young man my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. As I grew older I was amazed at how much the old man had learned in such a short time.
