    I think their most innovative engines where between Doom & Quake1. (Wolfenstein3D gets an honorable mention, mostly because it was faster than other pseudo-3D engines of the time.) Quake1 was the...

    Well, I feel I should clarify a bit. He's not a CS graduate, but he has been a professional game developer since the late 80's if I'm remembering correctly. That longevity goes a long ways.

    With...

    Clearly developers are going about this the wrong way. They should be writing for Linux and making Windows users use andLinux to run the games. Nobody would complain about that solution. :rolleyes:
  5. I'm not sure if that really counts since it...

    I'm not sure if that really counts since it already supports Linux. The campaign is mainly for IOS support (and extra content added to the game.) Don't get me wrong, I really hope they do well since...
  6. Yes, but if you actually read the article the...

    Yes, but if you actually read the article the very first line is: "Multiprocessing is the use of two or more central processing units (CPUs) within a single computer system." Also if you jump over to...

    Pretty much. It's similar to how Linux implements the POSIX standard but isn't certified POSIX (well, it's probably more accurate to say distributions, but you get what I mean.) Same thing here, Mesa...

    Perhaps you should read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiprocessing

    No, because Windows is software not a spec. If it was an open specification, wine would be much further along.

    No, but there were multi processor systems.
  10. While a reference implementation would be nice,...

    While a reference implementation would be nice, in this case it's not practical since it depends on hardware. C++ is another example where a reference implementation would be less useful than...

    Someone who wants to be a credible source should care, but I digress, as for the topic at hand, I think it's great that OpenGL 4.3 is out as well as the long awaited OpenGL ES 3.0.
  12. Possibly, but based on a quote from the other...

    Possibly, but based on a quote from the other story I'd say most likely not since he does not mention any inside sources for this conjecture.

    Speculative reporting isn't really reporting. When you're taking a guess, even an educated guess, it's speculation not reporting. Please don't try to pass it off as anything else; it tends to...

    Because they failed at packaging it generically! It amazes me that running from wine was the next choice instead of building the binary from source...

    It doesn't look like there's a package for warsow in Precise, but there was one for Oneiric: packages.ubuntu.com/oneiric/warsow It looks like the dependencies there should be mostly what you'll want...

    Hello to you :)


    I guess I would have personally just preferred the game and engine to have been kept separate.


    I call BS on this one outright. If you're properly using revision control,...

    Qfusion, as a stand-alone engine is dead. The last couple updates to Qfusion were basically back-porting Warsow features. That's a bit too bad, because the Warsow team is completely against having a...

    Pretty much. Developers of Steam games won't even bother to look into a Linux port until there is an official statement. It'd actually be foolish to start down that path in case Valve has a change of...
