    Phoronix: Alien Arena 2009 Released, Brings Improved Graphics

    Alien Arena 2009, which is the successor to Alien Arena 2008, has been released. We previously talked about the graphics improvements that were coming and now they have arrived. The key features in Alien Arena 2009 include GLSL per-pixel lighting on all surfaces, OpenAL 1.1 support, Ogg Vorbis support, GLSL post-process frame-buffer effects, new scoreboards, a new HUD, stereo music files, light volumes, a voice taunt system, and doppler sound effects...

    Can we expect higher detailed textures? . Maybe we could grab some deviantart junkies together, the quality of sound improved, nice . What about nicer fonts and clean main menu?

    Just never really thought to add it, guess I'll put it on the list

    Nope. I mean, I notice it a little, but I have to really look at the still image. Doesn't kill performance, but I usually have AA off in the driver because of the glitches some games exhibit. Most of the time I use in-game controls (works best in both Linux and Windows games), which makes me ask, why no AA controls in the game?

    That's more like it!

    You really don't see the sharp edges when AA is off?
    It's so much nicer when it's on.

    8xAA/16xAF @ 1680x1050










    0xAA/0xAF @ 1680x1050









    Maybe I'm blind, maybe it's the res. I'm playing at, or maybe fglrx has messed up AA controls, but I can't really tell a difference, except that when I use AA the menu screen starts "dancing" (it becomes blurry and jumpy).

    I don't think AA works. At least I can't tell the difference. Give me a second and I'll upload a few using 8xAA.

    I completely agree with Pfanne.

    I just wanna add one point: Why aren't there any screenshots where Anti-Aliasing is enabled? Sorry but if it's not used the game still reminds me of Doom 2
