    Phoronix: A New Commercial Game For Linux That's Not An FPS

    There's a new commercial game coming to Linux that's not yet-another-first-persons-shooter. Besides not being an FPS, one of the most common genres of Linux native commercial games, the game studio behind this title claims "there are some technical details about this game that make it completely unique within Linux."..

    Did not try the game but the video looks just like a wipeout clone. Do you support xbox 360 pads out of the box on Linux?

    don't think its a patent thing FSAA/MSAA is very trivial, and according to http://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature it is already being implemented, just nowhere near finished.

    btw. the game has been released now for linux on desura http://www.desura.com/games/corebreach and gameolith and ubuntu's software center will follow soon. hope to see a phoronix story about this soon ;-)

    thanks to everyone helping with the testing!

    It's probably one of those patent things..
    This really sucks for us people on older hardware that won't be able to use MLAA.. what are we supposed to do for our AA?? Still no alternative to Catalyst drivers for AA as MSAA is still not supported by r300g.

    Bah humbug. Still running Catalyst 9.3 drivers from 2009 to get my MSAA... and some newer games causes the whole PC to lock-up entirely because of these buggy 9.3 Catalyst drivers... /cry. They'll have to pull my Catalyst 9.3 drivers out of my cold dead hands because I won't give up MSAA unless there's an alternative to it.

    yes most likely.

    btw there seem to be some other problems with the game on MESA/ATI at least with the Gallium 0.4 driver version from ubuntu 10.11

    ?*with the normal (dynamic lighting) shader, the shadows below the main ship don't show up. disabling the "explensive shadows" (i.e. shadowmaps) from the video preferences may work around it?l

    Anyway, I filed a bunch of bugs about the problems with the Intel driver:
