    Also on the technical end 0 A.D. no longer requires libtxc_dxtn.so or the force_s3tc_enable option in the .drirc since the binary now forces S3TC for you with a setenv call:
    Code:
    setenv("force_s3tc_enable", "true", 0);
    Unfortunately this doesn't work with the r300 gallium driver since it doesn't support the force_s3tc_enable, neither via the env variable or .drirc. The only way to get S3TC support with r300 gallium is to install libtxc_dxtn.so (bug #29012).
