Rage Linux Port Is Not Likely Until 2012
Phoronix: Rage Linux Port Is Not Likely Until 2012
The much anticipated Rage video game was released yesterday by id Software as the inaugural title on their next-generation id Tech 5 engine. Unfortunately, as expected, this first-person shooter mixed with racing game was released without a native Linux client at launch...
I only hope it won't be the source for another pile of articles about how Rage is not yet available on Linux.
You "heard" that it's coming in 2012? :/
Well, if it's true: Better late than never.
I can wait. 2012 is fine for me
id Tech 4
Good thing about the liberation of Doom3 source and a possible iodoom3, is we hopefully will see this engine benchmarked (finally).
Even this cake is a lie! Like UT3, Steam...
So, please, don't start a new series of articles that we all know how will end: we'll never play Rage on linux. Sad but true
I heard the game sucks terribly on Windows. I'm not going crazy if Rage is on Linux.
given the current game issues that Windows users face, a Linux/Mac port might end up better in 2012: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=2154053
At least, the game will come with the bugs fixed. It seems that in windows there are several problems:
- Slow texture streaming
Video: Poor performance
- No advanced graphic configuration. The game autoconfigure itself to ensure a 60 fps stability. You only can change resolution, brightness and antialiasing.
- Menu for changing weapons adapted for a gamepad rather than a mouse+keyboard.
AMD and NVIDIA are realising new beta drivers to fix texture problems, but it seems that don't work for everyone.
I haven't played the game, this information is only what I have read.
I wonder if it's using OpenGL or DirectX in Window$?
