    I have to revert here:
    Please do not flood the factory-mailing list for the mesa 10 request. At openSUSE we have already a tool for that: openFATE.

    I opened the feature request there. Please support it by voting for it here:

    https://features.opensuse.org/317173

    IŽll give Greg a hint to the poll and hope the supporter-number gets big enough to make him do it

      I voted it up.
      (completely forgot about this OpenFATE stuff)

        Great update



        Yesterday I ran SS3 again (still HD7950 and Catalyst 14.3beta - had no time for changing anything, yet) after it downloaded some 94MB update (I'm in the SS3 beta program).

        And, what can I say - the stutter is gone!!!
        The intro video plays without hickups and in-game there are no short freezes when hordes of enemies spawn.
        I finished the "The Lost Temples of Nubia" level and hopefully find time tonight to try the next level with dark in-door areas where the torch is used - that was really problematic before this SS3 update.

        Cheers
        mibo

        PS: I even caught myself running and jumping/turning on some walls - it was very smooth and reminded me on the good old Q3A days :-)

          I also got on the beta (I didn't realize there was one until I saw someone else say it) and found that it improved performance, and even better last night after the last update.

          I'm still using radeon and Mesa 10.2.0 with my HD5870 and while performance still isn't "great" it's now better than it ever has been. I also bought the Jewel of the Nile DLC the other night and it played quite well. (perhaps even better than the main campaign, but that could just be my imagination)

          Now, when I installed the beta, I noticed some artifacts with the flashlight while going down one of those dark scaffoldings with ladders. Also, when the flashlight first switches on, I get a momentary freeze and some brief stuttering until everything is read again.

          I also get a bit of corruption while in some of those alien chambers with the shiny floors etc.

            Using a HD 7750 on mesa(git), Radeonsi, getting around 25fps constantly, no matter what the settings are.
            Also, tons of flicker everywhere, and shooting makes my framerate go to about 15fps.

            Windows performance is fine with SS3, as well as Source games where I can get >120fps with maximum settings (excl. AA).

              Sometimes when you upgrade from one driver to the next it is usefull to delete the cache:
              Code:
              rm -rvf ~/.steam/root/SteamApps/common/Serious\ Sam\ 3/Temp/ShaderCache/

                Just tested Catalyst, about 10fps, and other games are below <30fps.
