    Phoronix: Xonotic 0.7 Has New Compiler, Game Features

    It's been over one year of waiting for Xonotic 1.0. The popular open-source game's 1.0 release still isn't here, but Xonotic 0.7 has been released this weekend. Xonotic 0.7 brings forward a lot of in-game updates, including a new QuakeC compiler...

      Xonotic is so much fun. Excellent graphics, performance, music, art design. Easily the best Q3 style shooter imho.

        Just curious, what's the advantage in staying with Q1 QC/qcc, instead of moving to Q3 QC/lcc?

          Like we don't have to rewrite the whole gamecode from scratch? :P

              you got a paradox there
              xon runs good enough on OSS drivers
              "real games" from valve dont run at all
              proprietary drivers run all games good (at least nvidia ones do)

              i play xon AND dota2
              so whats the problem ?

                -Foss is hardly ever DOA

                -maybe you don't like it, but this is an update for the current userbase and is not linux only.

                -you don't need the best drivers to play it.


                I like the update and would like to see how much Foss games can push and optimize their current tech, till they decide is time to take on and optimize newer engines.

                Cheers.

                  QuakeC didn't change that much from version 1 to 3, so it wouldn't be a rewrite, more like a batch replace of some small parts.

                    Many people who play xonotic play on windows.

                      what the f are you talking about

                      this has been said a milion times already:
                      -you dont have to use the latest xorg/kernel
                      -you dont have to use linux
                      -for xonotic you dont even have to use fglrx (i played with OSS driver on a mid range laptop!)

                      and what has not been said:
                      -if when you bought your card it said on the box "supports linux" then AMD _IS_ obligated to support linux (i bet it didnt say)
                      -i dont blame ATI for nothing as 100% support for linux would make them loose money and nvidia/intel needs competition
                      (nvidia supports linux cuz of big companies, not cuz of gamers)

                      so next time think before you write nonsense


                      PS those "idiots" are changing things cuz they want to make them "right", not make them good for "whatever YOU want" or "backwards compatibility"

                          Where did you get that information? AFAIK only idTech1 used QuakeC, idTech3 used a totally different kind of game-play coding (some sort of encapsulated regular C if I am not mistaken).
                          One could argue that QuakeC has some similarities with regular C, but for all practical purposes switching from DarkPlaces to a idTech3 type of system would mean a near complete rewrite of the game-play code.

                          Besides that, both Darkplaces and the by now much improved script language QuakeC arn't really outdated at all and thus don't need replacement.

                            It is your fault that you bought such graphics card as AMD doesn't really support Linux. Linux isn't clone of Windows.

                              BO$$ is local retard. I have 3870 Mobile, that I use with opensource drivers in notebook. Today he says linux is better, yesterday he says give me windows and mso. Terminal case, perhaps brain amputated. If you really have a lot of time to waste, just troll the troll.
