    Phoronix: X-Plane 11 Beta Now Available, Demo Too

    Laminar Research has released their first public beta of the massive X-Plane 11.0 flight simulator update. It's a huge update and expect some bugs at this stage, but should be a very exciting release...

    "Video Card: a DirectX 12-capable video card from NVidia, AMD or Intel with at least 4 GB VRAM (GeForce GTX 1070 or better or similar from AMD)"

    LOL, which one is supposed to be the Intel's equivalent of a GeForce GTX 1070, with at least 4 GB VRAM?

      Tried to run it last night, but it doesn´t work with the open source AMD drivers (which they also explicitly state in the system requirements). Running a fully updated Opensuse Tumbleweed with Mesa 13, I was kind of hoping it would work anyway.
      Too bad, as it really looks amazing.

        Code:
        ./X-Plane\ 11\ Installer\ Linux
        ./X-Plane 11 Installer Linux: error while loading shared libraries: libc++abi.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
        Yea right.

        That file is part of LLVM 3.8.

        Code:
        LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/llvm38/lib ./X-Plane\ 11\ Installer\ Linux                                                                                                   :(
        WARNING: had to use SGI vsync function.
        X-System Error:
        X-Plane does not support the Gallium driver stack.
        First, try updating or re-installing your graphics drivers.
        If this does not help, check your graphics card specifications.
        For tech support, email [email protected]
        Sorry.
        They have a check for your current graphics driver in the installer. Not in the game. IN THE FREAKING INSTALLER.

        You can actually run the installer with
        Code:
        LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/llvm38/lib ./X-Plane\ 11\ Installer\ Linux --force_run
        so that's something.

        You also have to run the installed application with --force_run:
        Code:
        LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/llvm38/lib MESA_GLSL=dump hud ./X-Plane-x86_64 --force_run
        The menu first seems to start fine, but then it fails:
        Code:
        GLSL shader program 10 failed to link
        GLSL shader program 10 info log:
        error: fragment shader input `v_tonemap_gain' has no matching output in the previous stage
        
        Resources/shaders/terrain_vert.glsl+Resources/shaders/terrain_frag.glsl: error: fragment shader input `v_tonemap_gain' has no matching output in the previous stage
        The shaders up to then all actually compile fine, just linking them is apparently an issue.

        Here are the two files: https://gist.github.com/ChristophHaa...3c2a53c164ccda
        There's also some including of other shaders going on.

          And which is the equivalent for the 1070 from AMD? Fury(X) will only match it in a handful of benchmarks, but on Linux it's almost a no contest. Probably they had Vega in mind?

            I guess our hardware and drivers from future will run this in a recommended way

              Think about it this way: if it ran perfectly fine on today's mid-range hardware, tomorrow's high-end would be woefully underutilized.

                Can't wait to upgrade to XPlane11 even though I'm not interested in running the beta. Will buy it once it hits Steam

                  Good question, they probably only thought about Windows when they wrote that statement. Technically "GeForce GTX 1070 or better or similar from AMD" means that you are not recommended to use an AMD card that is faster than the Geforce GTX 1070, you should only use one that is similar to it. On second thought the person that wrote it must have only focused on writing the Geforce part of the statement.

                    Fury X is similar, Vega would be equivalent. But what about Intel? There is nothing similar, not even by an order of magnitude.
