Isn't urban terror a Quake3 mod?
I don't see why it wouldn't work, if Quake3 (and all the games based on the engine) is working.
Anyway, I played OpenArena for at least an hour last night. As long as I don't let the level finish, it doesn't crash Ending the level kills X. Gameplay itself is stable (and purrty).

Has anyone tried running kwin opengl composite with forcelowpower mode?
Running apps in an indirect context has the potential to kill the xserver since the xserver loads the 3D driver to support indirect clients. If there is a segfault or something in the 3D driver it will take X with it rather than just the app. In a direct context, you'd just lose the app.
I haven't been able to run kwin opengl compositing with any mode so far, it always hardlocks.Has anyone tried running kwin opengl composite with forcelowpower mode?
Really nice job, I am running compiz fine with good performance on my laptop equipped with HD 34xx mobile edition.
I just have to notice some refresh issues:
It happens with every applications, I have to minimize maximize to force a redrawing.
I'm running xorg-edgers ppa, which has merged agd5f's branch.
I'll try several games and report their status.
Well I'm realy pleased by how things are going, Next purchase is ATI, hope AMD cpus get back on track soon.
They seem to have a hard time comparing to their intel counterparts.
OK, so UrbanTerror doesn't work, the menus are garbled and when I start the game (unreadable menus but I now where to click blindly) it crashes right after the progress bar reaches the end. (when you enter the world).
Extremetuxracer crashes as well.
I tried neverball, it works with some artifacts inside the ball, (triangles are switching/rotating in the ball )

I'll be happy when I can run UT2004 without rebooting into fglrx. It'll run on ancient OpenGL1 PCI cards so hopefully there's not much left to do...
Sure AMD doesn't compete with Intel's $1000 i7 975, but I don't think they've lost many sales because of that.
The Phenom II X4 955 and 965 compete pretty well against the i7 920, and they're $50 cheaper. The X3s and X2s are also really good for their price.
