Re: #! Gamers

I play both Eve-Online and Minecraft hyper-casually - I think I've launched both of them once in the last 3-4 weeks (twice if you include for the screenshots tongue)

Using the Carbon-project build of wine 1.3.17 (http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/) and pulseaudio. Running great.

Re: #! Gamers

Nexiuz was good untill it got bought out (quite a nasty story there), but open source fork sprang up quick, imo better than nexuiz too:  xonotic.org

For me though, QuakeLive is still then king of linux games smile

I swear, had I known I'd be using CB so much, I wouldn't have bought that Radeon HD 5750... ugh. nVidia driver and OpenGL support is superior, easily.

But you guys ever play your Wii/GCN stuff with dolphin-emu?

I did a couple months back, it runs great. I worked my way through Metroid Prime 2 and New Super Mario Bros. pretty smoothly, but I don't have the CPU for some of the more taxing games. It's really impressive how far it has developed over the years, and the rate of development is still pretty high last time I checked.

Other than that, I had Spelunky running nicely via WINE. If you haven't played it, you are missing out, easily the best free game I've ever played:

Re: #! Gamers

I used to play everquest in wine on #!, I still play quakelive from time to time. In a couple months I'm going to build a new PC to play Rage and Diablo 3....on windows for now. I'm sure both of these games will run well in wine eventually, since they both will support openGL. A lot of users report higher frame rates in WoW under wine than in windows since they added openGL support.

It's a chess client, connects to FICS, so you can get your ass kicked by chess players much better than yourself. Or you can play against an engine, which is even more of a massacre. So yeah, I'm not a gamer, rather a sucker for getting beaten to the ground big_smile

@Those it may concern

How are your fps ratings compared to Windows when running newer, heavy games? (games like CoD-MW2 and Assassin's Creed 3)

It's probably not what you're looking for, but Minecraft is actually fairly heavy, being a Java game. And of course, it's new. Having said that, I am very proud to report that Minecraft in Windows 7 64bit I get about 30 - 80 frames per second, although when it rains in game I have seen it drop to 3 frames per second and become unplayable, in Win 7. In Win XP 32bit gives me about 50 - 90 frames per second. Crunchbang Openbox 64bit gives me 60 - 300+ frames per second. This is using the same Java versions on all operating systems, usually Java 7 64bit. Also on the Liquorix kernel.

My system is:

Core 2 Duo E6750 @ 2.66GHz (stock)
Nvidia GTS 250 512MB (basically a 9800GTX+)
4GB RAM

So from my excessive testing, Minecraft is simply MUCH better on Crunchbang Statler Openbox 64bit with the Liquorix kernel. It eats Windows for lunch.

As for other Linux games:

FREE:

* Astromenace (2D space shooter)
* Metal Blob Solid (2D platformer)
* Blob And Conquer (3D platformer)
* Open TTD (Open Transport Tycoon Deluxe Clone, loads of new stuff)
* Simutrans (Similar to Open TTD but different)
* Enigma (Great puzzle game)
* NAEV (2D space trading)
* Scorched 3D (3D Sorched Earth clone)
* Secret Maryo Chronicals (2D Mario clone)
* Meritous (Somewwhat of a Roguelike)
* Alien Arena (3D shooter with different modes)
*Corsix-TH (Open Theme Hospital)

PAID:

* Quake 3
* Unreal Tournemant 99 (GOTY)
* Unreal Tournament 2004 (the best of the Unreals)
* X3: Reunion

OTHER:

* DosBox Games (I have over 3,000 DOS games still, most are playable via DosBox)
* WINE - Diablo 2, Dungeons Of Dredmor (Roguelike), many others.

This is just a very small list of the games I like to play in Linux.

Also check out Season 18, Episode 1 of The Linux Action Show for Linux games. If anyone ever claims that Linux has "no games", then get their mouths and wash it out with soap. Windows isn't half the gaming machine that Linux is. Furthmore, with the woeful, absoultely attrocious subsystems that are in Vista, Win 7 and going into Win 8, I can't understand why people use those systems for games. If you must play a Windows only game, then do it on XP or Server 2003. If it only runs on Windows 7 due to DirectX 10, then don't bother.

One of the worlds most talented (or at least most celebrated) openGL devs appears to disagree with you. While I don't have the working knowledge of 3d rendering APIs to even get involved in that debate, the sad truth of the matter is, if you want to play the latest games and get the best performance while doing so, you need a windows machine. If you would rather just wait until games are better supported under wine, then more power to ya. Myself, I enjoy playing games online and know from experience that you can miss out on a lot of cool stuff if you don't play games when they launch. If you have a computer with 8 gigs of ram and a newer video card, you won't really have a problem satisfying the overhead that windows 7 demands while it runs in the background. I try to make sure as little of my money goes to M$ as possible, but I get legit windows 7 keys from school for free anyways so it's not a big deal to me. That being said, I will gladly play Rage and D3 on #! when it becomes plausible, even if I take a small performance hit.

Until support runs out for that OS. Or just ignore having an unsupported OS.

Because not running Windows 7 is more important than playing a DirectX 10 only game, amirite?
