Unigine Continues Improving Engine Quality
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...
Isn't the Unreal Engine available on Linux per the Killing Floor port?
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.

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

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.

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.
