The CPU usage is a known bug. Essentially, the tricks we use to keep the CPU usage down in GNU/Linux don't work the same way in Windows.

As for the Quadra thing, that's in the pipeline. I really hope to see something like that one day, but Crack-Attack! just wasn't designed for it initially. We'll be updating the networking protocol to handle something like it, and then the graphics will come much later.

thanks for the new Windos-Binaries. I've tried to get it compiled myself, but my lack of C++-knowledge i couldn't get it working.

Is it correct, that Crack-Attack has to use the full cpu all the time when playing? It doesn't matter which quality-level or graphic resolution i choose--> always 100% cpu-usage.

(Win XP SP2, 1 GB Ram, AMD64 3200+, GeForce6600GT with actual nvidia-drivers...)

Keep up the good work!

(And perhaps sometimes a multiplayer-mode like Quadra: http://quadra.sourceforge.net/ ?)
