    Phoronix: Giving Away Linux Copies Of The New Unigine Game

    Unigine's OilRush game was made available for pre-order earlier this month. The initial pre-order figures are somewhat disappointing for this game that's available right now as beta for Microsoft Windows and Linux (and a Mac OS X build coming soon) in a run-up to its formal release in June. If you don't have a copy yet, we're giving away a few copies of this oil-themed real-time strategy game that offers impressive graphics...

    That may be more true than anyone had guessed two years ago.

    I tested pts 3 with heaven profile. The thing is: basically you can not correctly compare gfx cards with only 1 setting. There should be 2 profiles, one with tessellation and one without. If you use the tessellation profile with a card that does not support opengl 4 it should just write an error. Otherwise some may think that old opengl 2.x/3.x cards are even faster than opengl 4 cards. Which is only possible because the opengl 4 cards run the demo with tessellation and the others without. There is no way to disable tesselation without "cheating" - that means changeing the config file.

    When the game is completed with good multiplayer it will absolutely be worth $20, so I recommend preordering the game to support the developers. The beta even runs well and looks great on my "old" laptop with a GeForce 8700M GT.

    But anyway, the sales would benefit greatly from a demo versions, I think many people hesitate preordering not knowing how well it would run.

    I think that Ubuntu should take advantage from Phoronix tools to benchmark systems during the installation, so people could be aware if their systems will be capable to run titles like this Unigine game.

    So, more people could know about this title.

    Well, since I'm bored,

    @Michael
    At the forum, when logged out, at top right corner where it says phoronix.com or something, the link is bugged and goes to ->
    htp://www.phoronix.com/
    instead of http://www.phoronix.com/

    Roger and out.

    I don't have any use for it. The drivers I use (open source r600) can't run this game. So no thanks. I'd take the Windows version though.
