    Phoronix: Mesa Driver Improvement Will Yield Quicker Startup For Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

    AMD Linux graphics driver engineer Pierre-Eric Pelloux-Prayer has made an improvement to Mesa's common code that should yield much faster start-up times for Valve's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive...

    I'm not playing this game, but wonderful optimization!
    Glad to see Mesa advancing so much.

      150 secs - 10 secs is indeed a very welcome improvement, I always assumed is was valves source engine at fault.

      Nice to see Michael is a player also, Giving bot tom a good seeing too in that screenshot

        Good find Michael!

        One thing though: it had taken 150 seconds for CSGO to start up? Gosh that is over two minutes.

          I have a weird experience with CSGO for years, or I use Steam Flatpak or I need to keep opening the game until it run, generally 3 times. The problem is that sometimes it updates and make even harder, today I tried at least 20 times.

          Awful port, even using dxvk instead of ToGL.

          Funnily enough, it's the "flag game" (sorry, idk a better way to express myself) of the most linux-friendly dev.

          It would be awesome if they allow to use Proton on CSGO. Proton supports EAC but not VAC, this is really curious.

              I'm in the same boat. I'm running PopOS + Wayland w/ Nvidia and getting it to start up is a crap-shoot (If i recall, it was the same with Ubuntu 20.04 + X11). It also frequently gives me a `csgo_linux.sh is not responding`. Runs like a dream once I'm in, but it can be an uphill battle.

                Haven't played cs for about 20 years but it is still nice to see it around and being played a lot. And of course seeing such improvements on Linux for it

                  The port is great, running great on Arch at least, and has better performance than on Windows... Maybe the port is not the problem.

                    So this huge performance fix is a fix for a workaround from 2013. I have mixed feelings about this.
