    Phoronix: Humble Indie Bundle #3 Ups The Ante

    For those that missed it when Humble Indie Bundle #3 made a million dollars, two new games were added to the DRM-free cross-platform pay-what-you-want game collection: Steel Storm and Minecraft...

    Minecraft was not added, it was there from day zero. I remember it because they had a "Play Minecraft while you're downloading"-Button.

      They gave a code to redeem the game.

      The wording is kinda confusing though. It makes me think that Minecraft is only playable with that code until the Bundle ends.

        How much will you pay for each copy Michael?

          Steelstorm is a blast and have to say right now its the best of the bundle. Getting that as a bonus surprised me big time.

          Given up getting Crayon to work on Suse 11.4, so doing that one via Steam. Rest works smooth

          @Michael, least you can do is link to the right page, all this linking inside phronix is silly

            Indeed. As I mentioned in another thread, I sure hope Steel Storm's developers get a cut.

                  Yeah, I just noticed that too on my download page.

                  And since I missed the Humble Bundle 2, this gave me kick-ass way of "buying" that pack as well by simply paying again and setting the majority of the payment to Humble Bundle 2.

                    That's more than I ever wanted, expected much less for 25$

                      Weird, encountered no issues myself, even though I run 64bit. Or that might be why it works fine for me since the games picks up the bundled 32bit libraries?

                      Surprisingly relaxing game.

                        Hammerfight ... eww

                        All the other games in the bundle work flawlessly for me, but Hammerfight's mouse controls are so poor as to make the game unplayable. Animation and scrolling are choppy, and the mouse tends to teleport around the screen in menus. I'm pretty sure this game isn't THAT resource-intensive.

                        Ubuntu 11.04 2.6.38-11-generic-pae
                        ASUS P7P55D-E PRO w/8GB Ripjaw DDR3
                        Intel Core i7 K 875
                        NVidia GTX 460 with latest drivers (8-3-11)

                          Solved my own problem. By default Hammerfight throttles the CPU and makes for all kinds of interesting problems with gameplay. There are also TWO config.ini files for the game, and the one inside the hammerfight folder in the home directory gets ignored.

                          Bravo to whoever thought this was a good idea. You putz.

                          The config.ini file the game actually recognizes is located in ~/.local/share/Hammerfight. ...at the ass end of a hidden, illogical, and obscurely named directory path where you'd never think to look unless you wrote the game (yes, I'm bitter but I have a sense of humor about it). Editing the config.ini file and changing the line

                          CORE_USE_SLEEP=true

                          to

                          CORE_USE_SLEEP=false

                          solved my issues. I hope this helps anybody else with this problem.

                            weird, how did you solve libsmpeg-0.4.so.0 and libtiff4 ? I even compiled libtiff from source and got libtiff5 not 4

                              I am interviewing the developers and it will be posted on www.gamingonlinux.com and have asked that very question as it interested me also!
