    it seems this problem is solved now in the latest update. I can run it out of the box now on opensuse 11.4 64bit

    Surprisingly relaxing game.

    Indeed. As I mentioned in another thread, I sure hope Steel Storm's developers get a cut.

    weird, how did you solve libsmpeg-0.4.so.0 and libtiff4 ? I even compiled libtiff from source and got libtiff5 not 4

    Ubuntu 11.04 2.6.38-11-generic-pae

    Intel Core i7 K 875
    NVidia GTX 460 with latest drivers (8-3-11)
    Solved my own problem. By default Hammerfight throttles the CPU and makes for all kinds of interesting problems with gameplay. There are also TWO config.ini files for the game, and the one inside the hammerfight folder in the home directory gets ignored.

    Bravo to whoever thought this was a good idea. You putz.

    The config.ini file the game actually recognizes is located in ~/.local/share/Hammerfight. ...at the ass end of a hidden, illogical, and obscurely named directory path where you'd never think to look unless you wrote the game (yes, I'm bitter but I have a sense of humor about it). Editing the config.ini file and changing the line

    CORE_USE_SLEEP=true

    to

    CORE_USE_SLEEP=false

    solved my issues. I hope this helps anybody else with this problem.
