    Phoronix: id Software Releases Doom 3 BFG Source-Code

    There's more good open-source news today besides NVIDIA publishing open-source 2D acceleration code for Tegra. id Software has just released the source-code to their new Doom 3 BFG game under the GPL license!..

    That's really cool, just tried it but there have been some mouse issues. caedes told me that there is another repo with a branch that fixes those:

    https://github.com/DanielGibson/DOOM.../improve-input

    Basically it works but no videos/sound yet. I would not use fullscreen because alt-enter/alt-tab does not work yet. So start it like:
    Code:
    ./RBDoom3 +set r_fullscreen 0
    I hope to hear something soon and see the videos, then it would be perfect.

    It seems someone has already ported Doom3 BFG to Linux or atleast it compiles and runs. Sound doesn't seem to work but otherwise it runs just fine.

    I see no problem playing D3 BFG via wine 1.5.15+, but of course you can use steam (-no-dwrite) just to download everything only as soon as somebody manages to port it to Linux. The video playback must be changed as well but should not be that problematic as libav/ffmpeg can play the videos directly, most likely you just have to force the 16:9 aspect.

    It probably would work, but I havn't used wine in over 6yrs and havn't used windows in 9yrs
    I'd feel dirty

    I'll just wait for steam, I prefer to only use native gnu/linux stuff.

    I got a response from my email asking the following:
    Can I get my purchased game from the website ? Installing windows/mac or using steam is not an option...

    Response:
    ...
    Since this title uses Steamworks as it's activation service you will require steam in order to successfully activate this title.
    ...
    Unfortunately since this is a digital purchase and the key for the game has been issued, we are unable to provide a refund for the title.
    ...


    Ohh well, atleast I got the CD key ....
    When steam comes out I should be able to download my purchase.

    I hope

    I hope someone makes use of the source code
    Hope to see Doom 3 BFG Edition gets ported to Linux.

    Hope to see the engine be used to power some open source game.
