      That was resolved real quick: NOTOURBUG :-(
      I really don't like what Unigine is doing with the OpenGL spec... And this is not the first time. There is another known bug when GL_ARB_draw_instanced is used, I did report this "gl_InstanceID" problem to them back in 08 April 2011 and it still isn't fixed.

      They just don't care.

      And now there is a talk about breaking GL compliance in mesa in order for Unigine to run!!!

      WTF? This is not the way its done, this could set a really bad precedent for all. Instead we need to put some pressure on Unigine corp to fix this.

        Marek OlöŠk :"Hi everyone,
        If your Mesa driver supports GL3 or EXT_texture_array or ARB_draw_instanced, Unigine is broken for you. (I tested Unigine Sanctuary and Unigine Heaven, the others probably won't be any different)
        The only way to make it work seems to be to relax some requirements of the GL spec and extensions (i.e. being non-compliant and non-portable in theory, but actually being very portable in practice). There are probably more ways to go about it. The patch below fixes softpipe and r600g. I think we should discuss this and come up with some solution, otherwise Unigine will be broken forever. It doesn't have to be exactly like this patch. I think that if we go with an out-of-spec behavior, we should print a compiler warning at least."

        LOL!!!!! i Vote for broke Unigine forever!

        Hell what a crap shit! ok my 15$ are lost on this company.

          Well, this will be fixed without breaking spec once we get GLSL 1.4 (GL 3.1)

          If I'm understanding everything correctly. Hopefully that's ready in Mesa 8.1

            Ian Romanick: The game is just broken. It check the client extension string (returned by
            glXGetClientString(dpy, GLX_EXTENSIONS)) instead of the list of extensions that
            are actually available for use (returned by glXQueryExtensionsString).
            Unigine, fix your game.

              Thanks guys for the support. Both issues are fixed. The updated game will be available soon. I hope it helps to improve open source driver implementations.

                  No. Unigine apps don't use the GLSL preprocessor directive #version, so they are stuck with GLSL 1.1 no matter what. (Anyway I'll try to update them to newer versions and see if anything changes)

                    this has nothing to do with the open source driver implementation. and it does not help to improve the drivers.

                    with this bugfix in unigine the game run right now without this bugfix the game runs only in the future with mesa8.1

                      Great, thank you. BTW any chance the demos (Sanctuary, Tropics, Heaven etc...) could be fixed too in next release?
