  • I love DOTA! I have a group of friends that gets together to play it every Sunday. I'd love to get in to this beta. I've been deply saddened by the issues I've had getting DOtA/War 3 to play nicely under my compiz / dual monitor setup *(side scrolling doesn't work when you scroll onto the next monitor). Ignoring that issue I still get artifacting and other problems about 3 minutes into the wined game. It'd be great to have a native game to play.

    • I'd love one to.

      • If there are still keys available I would like to take advantage of the opportunity to try out the beta. Other than mixed results with NWN my gaming has been purely Windows based so a good game on the Linux side would be great.

          (I don't need a key)
          I was kindly given a key and tried it on my G45. It runs, but except for the menu, the entire game is completely white

          I will file a bug with Mesa later, hopefully S2 will be giving out beta keys to the developers too.

          • Hopefully this game will work well with Mesa

            Please can I have a beta key?

            • Hi. Please add me to the beta.
              I currently own systems with: RV770 FGRLX, G96 NVIDIA, and M56 ati(opensource) systems. 64 & 32-bit.
              Thanks in advance

              • I always love to hear of native Linux games and would love to be part of the beta. If it is still open, please send me a beta key.

                • I would like a key to try this. I don't often get a change to play Linux-native games.

                    If the mesa devs want keys, just have them email slacker. Getting it into the hands of the developers who work on a platform you want to run on can only be a good thing .

                    From what I've seen, the white is just Mesa's shader compiler not liking the shaders in the game (preprocessor issues if I remember correctly). For what it is worth, ATI + OS X 10.4 also has issues with the shaders, but unlike Mesa's shader compiler, it doesn't throw any errors.

                      • I would love to have a beta key. I've played quite a bit of Savage 2 and love S2's games! Also, phoronix rocks and I always look forward to check your rss feed every day.

                        • Well, if you can get more, I'd like to have one key.
                          We don't have many opportunities to play native games in Linux (I mean, big games) and that's a fortunate exception.

                          Just a suggestion. As you in Phoronix have a relation with the developers, I'd like to know their thoughts about gaming development in Linux compared to Windows, because probably a reason for the lack of good games in Linux is that it's much more difficult to develop for it given the possibilities that one has to take into account, specially with the different audio stacks and driver bugs.

                          • Looks good. Can I have a key too?

                            Latest game I played natively on Linux was the Penumbra collection. Not a bad game, but there were some glitches and rendering artifacts.
                            It will be interesting to check it out

                              That's great! I filed a bug report with a link back to your post.

                              • I'm not requesting a key, as I currently doesn't have a gamer machine. But I'd like to salute the linux support. With new titles and AMD open source 3D graphics drivers coming, maybe things are finally happening on the linux gaming scene.
