    Phoronix: Unigine Continues Improving Engine Quality

    With Valve's Source Engine now on Linux, Unigine Corp finally has greater competition for the spot of the most demanding and visually impressive game engine native to Linux. At this point it really comes down to a fight between the Source Engine and Unigine Engine with id Tech 5 and Unreal Engine 3 not being natively available...

      No, Killing floor use unreal engine 2.5. This version of the unreal engine runs native on linux, but everything upwards from unreal engine 2.5 doesn't run native on linux.

        Unigine engine is a lie!

        I tested the new engine with Unigine heaven 3.0 and it turns out that the OpenGL renderer is complete broken on my hardware:







        The catalyst 12.6 makes 1,x FPS with openGL and the Radeon driver in Linux makes 3fps

        And directX in win7 makes 27fps!

        The unigine openGL renderer is broken by design for my hardware.

          On the bright side, the OSS drivers are more than two times faster than the blob!

            Yes right that result really stunned me... because I always thought the radeon driver is slow...

            In fact the radeon driver is awesome! and fucking fast!

            Its just the unigine engine what sucks on the OpenGL side.

              Someone should send ihttp://www.icculus.org the news about Steam, I heard he had ported Unreal Engine 3... I think they may have been waiting for Steam to be ported over.

                He is not able to decide about Unreal Engine 3. You should address Epic Games, because they stopped the port.

Because let's be honest here: if they make games that look like that you can pretty much be sure the gameplay sucks. They poured their money on tech and not on artists and level designers and writers. I'd rather have something with worse graphics that work on more configurations and great gameplay. Much like valve. Source engine is pretty much behind others but I still like their games more than any crysis.
                    Unigine is not a gaming company, they are a tech company. They have people who know how to program, not create games, so doing what you think would basically require them to fire all their existing employees and start from scratch with a completely new business model. More likely, they would just close the existing company and start a new one.
