      It makes perfect sense if you want fast hardware and good legacy support. And of course if you want free drivers.

        Limit sales dont care because nvidia have most bigger part of market (more money) and for this reason nvidia have support

        Are they again only supporting newer nvidia cards? If i remember correctly the last feral port wanted 7xx series or newer. Speaking of limiting your user base. Really guys, even vps eon ports are better than ferals at this point.

            No, but not supporting ANY drivers except from a single vendor does.

            At most, you can claim they have good support for Nvidia systems. Not Linux, not without at least 1 alternative driver supported.

              Well they wrote there whatever they want it seems, according to this comment game seems to work fine with Catalyst:

              https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articl...1/page=3#46401

              But yeah according to review that performance is still in area of known Feral 60% on nVidia Linux when compared with Windows, maybe on eye it is something again like SoM 40% on AMD

              If 60% support is there, but @40% support is not there - probably that is the logic

                I'd say it does suck because it's pretty obvious they aren't even trying to comply with OpenGL standards. If they could say that this game complies with GL4.3, then I'd say that's fine, but that isn't what was said. Instead they only claim that it requires nvidia drivers, which is well known that they allow nonstandard behavior. At this point the only fault I can find is Feral.

                I want to buy games for linux, but I will not give up support for OSS ideals to do that. That's what makes it suck.

                  Woah, it's really trippy on my machine :

                  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n35hwmN3VmQ

                  This is on Arch Linux, fully up-to-date using the RadeonSI driver on a 7970 on mesa 11.0.4. I've used the default graphics settings, which are set to low everything, except I changed the resolution to 1080p. If you're not able to click through to Youtube, there's massive graphical corruption, it looks like playing it on acid. Basically it's completely unplayable on my machine.

                  The initial cutscenes (not shown) actually rendered correctly, but once I got into the gameplay it went haywire. There were issues loading though, the fps dropped to dead zero at points during loading, and it took a lot longer than I expected (loading from an SSD, at points it seemed to hang, but it got there eventually).

                  Still, it's the first Ferel game that I didn't already have from buying it on Windows, so it's the first time my money has gone to them so I'm happy to support them.

                      Speaking about bad ports of windows games to Linux: I can't run Civ Beyond Earth using wine due to DX11, but I can run Civ5. And it "feels" faster using gallium nine than the native port. Loading is a bit slower on wine, though. I'm still trying to fight the benchmark mode to get actual numbers.
