  • GLSL on 6xx/7xx is at the point where it passes most of the unit tests and has started app testing & bug fixing.

    I wouldn't call it ready for general use yet.

      hey in 'my point of view'

      OpenGL2 means something like DirectX8/9b...

      i think farcry1 is a dirctX9c game.....

      then you need OpenGL2.1+'VTF'+'3-4 wine-openGL3.2 extensions'

      ins short words... no!

      there are still 1 wine bug in wine or catalyst 9.12 and 9.12 have openGL3.2 with Wine extansions and 3.2 means also full Vertex Textur fetch VTF support.
      mesa7.8/radeon do not have VTF and only 1 wine extension (of 4) and no ogl2.1 and no ogl3.2 at all

      they also can fix wine and chance the nvidia stylisch dx9VTF(mean dx10/ogl3) in an pure ATI directx9c-shader3-ugly one.

      but you still need OGL2.1+(WineOGL3.2 extensions for best performance).

      i think the Opensource driver can handle this in mybe 6 monds!

      • Far Cry 1 has got OpenGL and D3D engine.

        r_Driver = "OpenGL"

        You have to force in the config file to use it. Better use google befor you post something wrong

          It doesn't list Far Cry, but as you can see most wine games are listed as garbage unfortunately.
          Mhm ok thanks. Is there a similar list for fglrx?

            That's correct. And last time I checked, with the nvidia blob both work without issues.

              AFAIK no. There's the wine appdb, but it doesn't contain a field for the videocard/driver used. Sometimes you can find information in the comments.

                Far Cay doesn't need VTF, as it runs fine on Ati X1xx0 cards. Besides, any new laptop with Ati graphics supports DX10+ (incl. VTF).

                  realy Opengl in wine is not so shiny as in theorie.....
                  there are Windows-Only-OpenGL-Extansions!
                  exampel: WOW in openGL modus you can't see the mini-map---

                  only DirectX modus brings the full game to work!...

                  I'm so sorry to you kano but windows games use windows-only-extansions in the OpenGL modus... useless for wine!

                    you don't unterstand.......
                    on windows thats work on an X1xxx..YES but....
                    only shader3 not VTF.

                    but! WINE shows to the programm a nvidia card if wine defect MESA as a renderer....
                    nvidia means.. if the Programm contain VTF for nvidia card wine transplate VTF code to openGL.......

                    "Besides, any new laptop with Ati graphics supports DX10+ (incl. VTF)."

                    Yes i know!

                    But...... the OpenSource driver do not support VTF,,,, only openGL2 for amd VTF is openGL3 !

                      no i do not have a exampel...

Isn't it more likely that the use of a minimal OpenGL set is targeted at open source drivers rather than gaming vs workstation drivers ?
                      so far i know blender is target to software-renderer-openGL
                      you can use blender with a 'vesa' card

                      give me 20 000 and i make a studie abaut Cad software on gaming cards on openGL vs DirectX...

                      i do not have prove only a bad feeling abaut openGL is dieing.

                      only 1 important company plan a big openGL3 game Blizzard next-gen-WOW..

                      but direct10 is 4 years old and hase in feeling tausend of games and DX11 is a half year old and have 5+games...

                      right now there is no openGL3 game.........

                      in the CAD market it shows me the same,..
