    Phoronix: Dead Island Should Now Work With The Gallium3D Drivers

    The Dead Island open world survival horror action RPG game that's more than six years old should now work with Mesa's Gallium3D drivers...

    Nice to have the feature in mesa I guess, unfortunately the game is kinda crap (bought it for 10$ some time ago but spent almost no time in it).
    It's basically a poor version of dying light, but without story (AFICT), worse graphics and bunch of bugs (even in 'definitive edition', which is all you can get - original game isn't even on steam anymore). In just about every regard it is inferior to dying light, only good thing about it is that it is dirt cheap on sale.

    I would just recommend DL as an objectively _better_ game.
    Okay subjectively but seriously, it's like comparing indie to AAA game, DI has it's charm but DL kills it in most aspects I can think of.

    I have pretty high quality on 1080p.
    And dying light also works great for me. Even on my r9-270 it was good.
    Don't forget that Fury X just had broken drivers for a long time, and that AMD was on it, but couldn't find the reason why for some people it was performing badly.
    Sure it works fine now with the latest Mesa code. So long as you include the hacks in drirc.

    Yeah never had any significant issues with any other game around the time, performance wise. And I was running Ubuntu 14.04 - because that's what the fglrx drivers supported. I still have the installation kicking around on an old SSD.

    I don't know about you, but I don't think we are in a position now to only pick rotten bones developers trow at us, just because Linux is a small market. A couple years ago I purchased a lot of games to "show support" to those who supported Linux. Now? Now I only select those with minimal quality standards. Techland have a well documented history of launching bugged games on Windows, managing to make even worse on Linux.
