Unigine Heaven On Linux In A Month Or Two
Phoronix: Unigine Heaven On Linux In A Month Or Two
Earlier today Unigine Corp shipped their Heaven tech demo with their latest game engine code that contains many new features since their Tropics demo last year, including a DirectX 11.0 renderer for Microsoft Windows 7 users. Right now Unigine Heaven is just available to Windows users, but as we mentioned earlier today, a Linux build will be coming. Unigine Corp's CEO, Denis Shergin, told Phoronix this afternoon that Heaven for Linux should be available in one to two months...
Anyone notice the path being a tad too rocky?
Let them have a little fun with testellation ;-).

When the OpenGL bugs are fixed, Unigine is confident it will look about the same.

well i think this is virtual??? never happened?? lol??? jajaja is even dx9!!!!

beside im quite sure my 2x4850x2 are hell powerfull enough for any tessalation , so this is an in company screw 4800 ppl and force them to buy 5800 series or actually exist any techical difference that make 1 tessalation incompatible with the other?? even if it exist, wth?? opengl have extension you know, so you can have tesslation and legacy tessalation in that case too.
in fact i remember to see a tessalation extension in fglrx opengl, have to check it out
even if this tessalation give less details (i dont think thats true based on several demos outhere but well i can be wrong), for ppl like me , that spend several houndred $$$ we want to see tessalation lol, even if got a bit less detail, on the windows side well i dont care
The older gpu tesselation support isn't nearly as powerful or flexible, it's essentially what ATI developed for the XBox360 GPU. It was never used on PCs because NVidia didn't have anything comparable and developers apparently decided it wasn't worth using if only half their customers would benefit.

Damn that's nice.
Kudos to the devs for not just giving us a demo that is technically impressive, but also artistically, too.
I'd have to agree on the road being a bit too bumpy. There's also a bit too much depth of field in a few places and the swing on the bridges is floaty. Other than those minor crits though, this is a work of art. The light casting shadows on the grass, the dented dome metal roof, the smoke wafting lazily from the chimneys.
Stick a deathmatch mode on that and I'd buy it in a heartbeat.
omg thats all we need, another deathmatch game....
