      I thought you were looking for games, not completed demos. Try asking http://www.thedarkmod.com/main/ or http://sourceforge.net/projects/stuntrally/ if they would add a demo.

        Yes, and 0AD needs more publicity. It's a promising project.

            What about, instead, adding an FPS counter to mesa, that gives the time elapsed and prints the total frames painted? There is already LIBGL_SHOW_FPS=1, it should be easy to add that. Then you could benchmark every game that can use a reproducible demo and quit automatically (obliously only under mesa). See the current implementation: http://cgit.freedesktop.org/mesa/mes...ri2_glx.c#n670

              The problem that it's Mesa-only.... I like anything (as do most of the customers) in PTS to be near-universal. Though anyone else is free to create their own Mesa-powered test profiles and upload them to their own account on OpenBenchmarking.org to share them with the community, just as the Wine guys do, etc.

                @michael please start a kickstarter project for supporting 0AD and Spring
                yes please.
                I’m sure you get 1000 dollar for spring and 1000 dollar for 0AD.
                after that you do have more REAL games for your benchmark articles.

                just do it!

                  That's in the domain of the devs of those games.

                      Agreed. Michael does not want to step on the toes of the developers. Its best for the developers to solicit donations for their respective games.

Hopefully it will all be working smooth and can then incorporate it into PTS right away tomorrow/this-weekend so that the test profile is included when testing out the graphics of some alien chip that arrived this week after suffering poison ivy
                        Was going to send you a PM but your inbox is full... any luck on this?

                          Yeah, because guys that publish blogs should definitely make money off the backs of hobbyist game developers.

                            I found a good open source clone of Diablo 1 named Flare. The website of the project: http://clintbellanger.net/rpg/
                            it's not finished, but in it's current state already quite addicting and takes about 10-15 hours to play 1 class through.

                                the tenth alpha of 0ad was released yesterday: http://wildfiregames.com/0ad/

                                very nice game. The new music tracks are great.
